Hey guys, first post. I am working on a project for school and am interested in getting some feedback from the game community. I want to build something board gamers will use, so I want to get some initial feedback about a concept I am working on. I have a quick survey below if you want to help!

Feel free to post questions.
Thanks! - Jordan

Done the survey.

By the way, there are lots of 'recommendators' available in some form or other aside from the one in reddit in case you didn't know. The main problem is that no one is updating them haha

Appreciate you taking the time. I will look into these other tools as well. Its good to know that upkeep is one of the biggest problems.

One thing I still have to work out is how to create a revenue stream. I want to offer the tool for free, but want to make sure that it can be supported. The current idea is to have paid advertising along side the recommendations. Right now, I need to make some connections with potential advertisers who would be interested and get their feedback on the approach.

Just a note for clarification on the Help Identify the Problem, one of the questions ask about other problems faced by the community. The point of this question is to really identify if getting a recommendation is really an issue or if there are other more pressing issues that should be addressed. Examples could be:

1. I have a favorite game, but the content ends there. I would buy books T-shirts and other things realated to my favorite game - they just don't make them.
2. Having a database of strategy related to games would be helpful for beginners to help bring them up to more competitive speed.

Etc. These may or may not be real issues, but I want to really figure out if there should be another top issue that should be addressed besides recommendations.
