I've noticed how many threads are just concepts, and they sit (I'm one of the main culprits). I think having a thread for Ideas that aren't planning on production would be a good Idea. It would be good to have an archive for completed projects, just to make it easier to find what you are looking for.

That's why I have a thread to dump all my ideas and then a dedicated thread when I move forward on one of them (before it reaches the depth of the unfinished artifacts).

A dedicated subforum would be cool, at least to separate ideations from real projects.

Creating a personal concepts thread is a good Idea too.


That's good to know, but I still think a dedicated concepts thread would be nice. :)

Dedicated concept subforum created. Please report any relevant threads so they can be moved :)

Keep in mind that this subforum is focused on "brain dumps" rather than focused, iterated design towards production. Once a singular design is getting quite far along towards production, it will be more suited to be in the Custom Cases subforum. If a design is intended for a one off, it goes in Build Logs.

Does this mean that a second thread has to be started, into 'Custom Cases' or 'Build Logs', if a first thread into 'Concepts and ideations' is leading to a real prototype?
Or asking for a move is a possibility?

No, you just ask the mods to move the thread. I think.

Then again, having a fresh start for prototyping could be nice...

Pinging @confusis to confirm.
