Hey /collab/ ! Quite awhile back, I started this project but didn't have the time for personal projects at the time. Now, I am. I run my own web design business and have decided its stable enough to get some of these side projects started. :)

Today, I'd like to present Pinkie's List. http://pinkieslist.com

Pinkie's List is a classifieds board for bronies. Shockingly, I've yet to see one, so I made one. One of the core goals I had for this project was to link talent with people in need of it. The other major goal I had was to have a common place bronies could post listings on for roomshares and carpools for conventions. I believe I've accomplished this by fully separating "Listings" from "Helping Hooves". The site is currently in beta. It has a few minor things (consistency of text and minor search bugs) that are being fixed, but I wanted to get it out there and dicussed.

If there's anything at all I can gain from the great folks of /collab/, whether promotion, feedback, or even just criticism, I'd be greatly appreciative.

I admire the concept. I can tell that a decent amount of time was put into the site's application itself. I also like the fact that there's no logging in required. It puts less pressure on the project contributors (and also the lack of people using tripcodes on this board with little concern of sockpuppeting might reflect that statement).

Though I do have one suggestion. Why not divide the project categories by tag instead? There's lots of projects I could see being made that would fall into multiple categories, thus dividing attention far apart enough that users might feel that they might get better reception posting somewhere more trafficked. It might effectively fix that issue if the user can display listings under multiple categories at a time.

I did however notice the existing tags regarding the participation type. I can see how it could be pretty useful, but I couldn't help to notice that there's one tag for "full-time" and one for "part-time". It's all volunteer projects (right?) so what's the difference? And even if there were cases where money was somehow involved, it would likely involve commissions, right?

But other than those concerns, I think the project model itself is promising. I'll be keeping an eye on this site for a bit, and will probably let others know about its existence. Great start though!
