    Good work! But in all seriousness, I would love this

      Thanks! The positive feedback is really motivating. I feel like this would be a great tool for freelance designers who don't have a big team to bounce ideas around or just anyone wanting an outside pair of eyes.

        Agreed! the biggest pitfall would be, once too many people join it becomes over saturated, hard to get noticed, and everyone defaults to posting their work on every comment. But finding a clever solution around that would be your main selling point i think

          Like disabling links in comments.

          As for saturation, I think that:

          • This wouldn't necessarily be a platform where you follow people, because seeing "cool" stuff isn't the point. The goal is to get and give feedback.

          • Getting noticed (i.e., critiqued) could be challenging, but—being that it's not a follow-based system, you could just curate un-critiqued works for each user to look at and provide feedback on.

          Additionally, to help with saturation, I would propose a point system so that you have to critique X times to have your work show up on the to-be-critiqued feed. And—of course—an invite system would be necessary to ensure critique quality.
