Got something up for feedback
I got a landing page created and have part of the builder tool working. I'm starting to email out to some of my agency contacts and see if they have feedback about the tool.
Would love any thoughts you have about the landing page, potential pricing model, or features for the tool itself.

Met with Andrew about this the other day and he thought this idea had a lot of potential. It's amazing what a short conversation can do to motivate you to work on an idea.

I feel like the basics of the site are there and working. Waiting to see how it will be used and what features would be valuable to people. Would love to hear ideas and feedback. Here were some thoughts about what else could be added:
- Ability for others to ask questions about projects and have the maker respond.
- Ability for the maker to add polls to discussions (like what feature to build next)
- Ability for maker to add a "next up"/"roadmap" to projects, re-arrange them, and possibly allow people to "like" or "vote" on them.
- Ability to add monthly metrics to projects (such as users, earnings, content added...?) kinda like the "open startup" idea.

I just need to update this so that the WordPress repository says that it is compatible with the latest version of WP.
I've also been working on adding in the ability to add Advanced Custom Fields to the Archive page, kinda like an options page. Made some progress awhile ago, but need to flesh that out a bit more.
