"Here's What I Have - What Can I Make?" - New Functionality Answered
I enjoy small projects, tinkering and making. I will admit though that I am not that creative. I often have to come here to find something someone else has already made and try to replicate it on my own. That means going out and buying or finding all of the parts and then building whatever it is. And that is all fine and good. A foundational idea behind the site to begin with I suppose.
But I also have a shop full of stuff, parts, thingies, bits and pieces of this and that, but like I said, I am not that creative and often have a
hard time coming up with something to make out of it.
The Instructables community is filled with creative people with amazing ideas that are more than willing to share and suggest new ideas.
I would like to see a functionality where I could come in and list all of the stuff that I have, or a subset thereof, list the tools that I have to work with and then put it out to the Instructables Community to suggest to me what I can make with the things and tools that I have at hand. Possibly even have them vote on those suggestions and then, I as the user, go and create that thing and post my Instructable once completed.
I think it would be one more way in which the community can interact and help each other.
