Description:

If I get enough users to support me and help me out, I will create a site called Open Source ads.

This will be a site where users contribute the videos they make to act as advertisements on television. Maybe even radio and banner ads for web sites. Money will also need to be donated to pay for the ads.

I need people who:
- Are open-source enthusiasts.
- Enjoy making videos.
- Have knowledge about website design and web servers.
- Are willing to spread the word to their friends with similar interests that would also participate and help the site grow.

When you join the group, post a comment explaining your talents and how you can help so I can get a better understanding of who's supporting the project and how they can help the cause.

The only thing Microsoft and other proprietary companies have over us is money to advertise and support by hardware companies. If we assemble an organized way to create ads for the open-source worlds' products, we could free the world from Windows and other proprietary companies.

Here's how the site would work:
Users would upload as many videos as they want. Other users would rank them. Whenever an advertising opportunity rolls around (based on the amount of money donated and other aspects), the top rated videos will be put on the home page for users to vote on. The one with the most votes ends up on TV. It's simple.

I'm asking for help because every site I've created without help has failed. The more support I can get the more likely this will succeed. SO WHO'S WITH ME??? :D

BTW, if anyone wants to create a logo ahead of time to fill in the empty space for the group badge/image, I would be very happy. We might even use it for the site logo in the future.

Well if you know anyone that enjoys making videos using open source software you can start by telling them. If you know anything about web design you could suggest a CMS to use on the site that would be good. I doubt we'd code it from scratch.

Hi I suggest you use a .tk free domain for temporary. You can have .com later.

http://dot.tk

Also, you can start your own Joomla, Wordpress and media Wiki for free. (This is a 100% free and libre hosting, for sure it's Open-source hosting. Head to http://www.dreamhostapps.com/ quick and don't miss this free-for-ever hosting....

Just my two cents. You don't have to buy forhosting, and if you can pay for .com, it's so cheap, i think it's about ten dollars a year..

No, I will not use .tk. I already have web hosting I can use and professional .org domain names are pretty cheap. People who have been making websites far longer than I have have said that .tk is a huge scam.

Yeah, it's shared hosting on site5.com. The plan comes with unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth. Only additional cost will be the domain name.

Yeah, it's great! I would really love a project like it!
I think that you should contact Mozilla, they have done a few similiar campaigns already. I think they would support something like this.

It's really a good idea, and if you want to build a site for free, you can use weebly (www.weebly.com), they place no ads (except "powered by weebly" at bottom of page) and unlimited hosting and pages. For a free domainname you can use dot.tk (www.dot.tk), just a http://www.yourname.tk domain and no ads.

Like I said above, I already have hosting covered. And I'm definitely not going to use .tk.

Why I haven't Started
The main thing that's keeping me from starting this site is my lack of knowledge of the advertising world. I don't know much at all about contacting different TV channels about advertisement, copyright laws, television FCC laws, etc. I really need someone that does know about all that who can help me come up with a good way to run it and maybe even help run it themselves. What I have written above in the description is based on assumptions. If anyone here is an expert or knows an expert in the field of advertisement, email to resuni AT loud-mouth DOT net.

Elgg
As I have written in the topic of the IRC channel, I'm considering Elgg as the CMS to use for the site. I've never used this CMS but it has some good reviews, good support, and is open source. If anyone has web developing experience or experience with CMS's, I'd love to hear your input on Elgg or other CMS's out there.

Google Groups
I created a Google Group for this project. It seemed more official than an OpenDesktop.org group. I would prefer to switch over to that as a main form of communication.
