Anubis and I were just talking about some ideas for devmaster, and we came up with this one out of Ed Mack's idea of a featured developer.
What we thought would be to have a featured project. On some arbritary timescale - per week, per two weeks, whatever, we'd pick an interesting project of whatever type. Then we'd write up a mini article about it. It would have a short blurb about the person who made the project, then a description of the project and some information about it. Perhaps a short interview with the person who wrote the project (depending on whether they're a member of the forum, or are easy to get at) . Obviously we'd need someone who'd be responsible for doing this, but I'm sure we'd find someone happy to do that.
If we ever didn't have a project to feature, we can cycle round old ones so that people who missed them can see them. We could also have a simple indexing so that you could look up people's past projects, perhaps from their profile?
So, what do you guys think?
