Terms and Guidelines

Introduction

You should carefully read the following Terms and Conditions (also referred to as the "Terms of Use", "Terms of Service" or "TOS"). Your use of our website implies that you have read and accepted these Terms and Conditions.

Information

The following terms and conditions govern all use of the Project Ideas Website and all content found on it. The Website is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other associated operating rules and policies (including, without limitation, Project Ideas Privacy Policy).

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the Project Ideas Website. By accessing or using any part of the Website, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access our website. If these terms and conditions are created by Project Ideas, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.

Note: When we refer to the "idea" we mean the content. As an idea can never be actually owned or have legal rights to.

Age Limit

The Website is available only to individuals who are at least 13 years old. If you are not yet 13 years old, you must stop using the Website immediately or else provide Project Ideas with written parental approval.

Language

All posts, comments and any other written text on Project Ideas should be in American or British English. You may write words in an other language provided you write the translated text into English as well. We want everyone to understand what you write.

Project Ideas Language

When posting ideas that are focused around a domain extension from a specific county. Like: .fr, .de, .in, etc... You may write in the language of that country provided you also post the translation in the post.

The best way to do this is to split the post into two pages using the 'Insert Page break" in the editor. On the first page everything would be said in English on the second page in the language of the domain extension.

You can be more detailed on the second page as long people get what you mean (the basics of the idea) by reading the first page. So that an English person wouldn't know less (info needed to know to make this project work) about the idea than the person (that knows the language of the second page) reading the second page.

Tip: Be sure not to abuse this trust bestowed upon you. You could easily write something offending or inappropriate in your own native language on that second page without us knowing it. But we know most of you will not do this.

To those that might:

If we ever find out from someone reporting the post with the content in question being offending in said native language then we might have to revoke your publishing abilities if not IP ban you. Depending on the situation.

MSN Language

We don't mind comments written in msn lanague as long they don't exist just out of that but are mainly written with correct grammar. We want everyone to understand what you write.

Example:

Allowed: tbh I am going to disagree with this idea being a wild success. ;)

Not allowed: tbh idk :|

Of course posts should contain the bare minimum of msn language or other short text or symbols.

Our Services

Our basic service of offering information about project ideas is and will always be free. These are free to both registered users and guests. However we may offer some paid services like advertising on our website.

Donations

Any amount we receive from donations is welcome. However we will not offer refunds of money you donated. All money donated will only go to this website and that alone. No money will be spent for personal use. All we gain from donations will be invested back into the website. When donating you agree that you cannot withdraw the money you send to us.

By donating you verify to be 18 or older and know and comply with the regulations of Paypal.com. Donating to us if you are younger than 18 is possible with parental approval. Thus using the account of one of your parents to send the donation.

Idea Credit

The author may request the person using the idea to add a credit line in the footer or somewhere on the website that will use the idea.

This "credit line" would simply say: (The link can go to the page of the idea as well)

This website was made possible by Project Ideas.

The author can if he/she wants full credit to ask the webmaster using his/her idea to put:

This website was made possible by Creative Kid.

Note: (Creative Kid = Author name with url leading to his/her profile on Project Ideas or own website.)

It isn't required to add this line or any other line of credit. The author can't make any real demands but just requests.

It's your choice to respect them in some way or another or just ignore them.

Regarding Ownership of ideas

In the first place we own the rights to the idea published by any author. Rights as in we can say no to you just deleting the post that contains the project idea. You however as the author of the idea have the right to ask us to make the idea hidden from everyone.

You also have the right to choose:

  • What info you display of the idea on the post page.
  • To whom you share the domain name that is associated with the idea.
    • If you make it private in the post or public.
      • Note: It's important when making it private you share contact info so people could contact you for the domain name.
      • A domain should when possible be untaken but if not be listed up for sale. (So no untaken domain another person can't buy.)
        • If you pick a domain for sale then you need to link us to that page on what the domain owner is selling it for x amount of cash. (You link us from the idea page.
        • You may not make the domain name private if it's for sale. (People have the right to know the domain name without e-mailing you if it's an already registered domain name that is for sale.)

E-mail Notifications 

As an author you can manage the list of subscribers to your post. If you own a post (and you are now logged in) you could view how it looks here. As an author you can remove subscribers from your post but we would recommend not to do this.
Currently our blog sends out an e-mail to the author of a post when the commenter (logged in or not) is commenting for the first time on our blog.
This means that we or you have to approve the comment. After that is done you nor we will have to approve any future comments from said guest or user.

You are always required to approve a comment. Of course if the comment doesn't violate any of the rules defined on this page.

Contacting the Author

As a logged in user you can if the author of a project idea has chosen to do so, fill out a very short form (subject + comment) to email directly to the author. This could be easier than to copy paste the e-mail the author has given as "contact info" and type the e-mail from there through hotmail.com or an other provider.

Note: The author is not required to include this form in their post(s). Also the author can choose to display this form for guests and users or just for logged in users only.

When submitting a message through this form you agree to the following:

  1. That the author will be able to see your IP.

  2. That the author will be able see the username of the person that sent a message.

  3. That the author sees the e-mail associated to the account of the person that sent the message.

    1. This allows the author to reply to your e-mail.

Why should he be able to see my IP? To make sure when abuse is made of the contact form that we (Project ideas) can take appropriate action quickly. Depending on the gravity of the abuse we may ban the IP associated with the e-mail(s).

Can I contact the author without being a user?  It depends if the author has hidden his/her e-mail from guests and only shows it to logged in users.

As an author you will never share the IP(s) you get access to from messages sent to you from Project Ideas its webpages.
If you do then we may terminate your account and IP ban you.

What to e-mail

You can write to the author the following:

  1. Ask any specific question that you didn't get the answer from after reading the post of the author.

  2. Inform yourself on what domain name is associated with the project idea.

    1. Only applies when the author hasn't shared the domain name in public. (Also the author is not required to share the domain name through e-mail.)

  3. Share what you plan on doing with the idea of the author.

    1. This could help in motivating him/her to mark the post [taken]. (Isn't required to do this.)

      1. By letting the author mark the post [taken] people will know someone (you) is developing or will in the future develop the idea.

  4. Ask the author to mark the idea [taken]. If he/she doesn't want to know what you plan on doing with the idea they might just mark it taken on your request.

  5. You can also discuss a partnership, should the author be interested to start the project idea with you.

  6. Asking (If the author hasn't stated it already.) if he/she wants a credit line on the website that uses the idea.

If you get IP banned we are very sorry but sometimes it's just for the best. Accept it and move on. Don't take it personally.

Don't try to use a proxy and get involved again on our website. We will just IP ban you again.

How many warnings can I get before getting IP banned? It depends, did you do it unintentionally or intentionally. Cause if you didn't know you were doing something wrong we understand. However if you know you're doing something that is against our rules here it might not be a warning you get but an instant IP ban. This of course depends on the severity of the situation.

Reasons you might get a warning for from us through e-mail:

  • Breaking any rule(s) defined on this page.
  • Posting details of an idea you didn't come up with and didn't give credit.
    • + not having the permission from the person who wrote the details you share-copy pasted to our website.
  • Going off-topic on a page or post.
  • Writing a comment/post in French or any other language than American or British English.
  • Writing a comment/post with to much msn language again and again.
  • Posting/sharing affiliate links of your own or others that if clicked or signed up for get someone some cash.
  • Etc ... 

Reasons you might get IP banned for:

  • Using a proxy to access/use our website.
  • Having more then 1 account on Project Ideas.
  • Removing a whole post its content without telling us when you do it or why. (We don't want visitors to find empty posts!)
    • Don't share an idea that you don't plan on letting remain on Project Ideas.
    • If you got a really good reason and tell us this before removing the post (its contents.) we might agree with the removal of the idea.
  • Demanding anything other than the intentions of the person who is informing about the idea you posted.
    • With this we mean don't ask for cash if they want to know the domain name they could use. 
      • Instead say no to sharing the domain name.
    • Etc ...
  • Copying ideas without giving credit to the author and without asking the permission to share it on other websites.
  • Etc ...
It seems pretty strict here? We are not perfect. No person or site is. We try to learn from trial and error. So what is said on this page may change at any given time.

 

Are we wrong in having warned you or banned you? E-mail us at projectideas[at]hotmail[dot]com explaining us what we did wrong.

If I'm banned then how can I see this page? You can't but then again you are probably using a proxy (Which is allowed only for finding out the e-mail you need to contact us with.) or if you're smart you have visited this page before getting banned! ;)

Alterations

Project Ideas may revise these Terms of Use for its Website at any time without notice. By using this Website you are agreeing to be bound by the then current version of these Terms and Conditions of Use.
