"If your concept is selected for realization would you like to be involved in making it happen?"

This is a question that could be asked of everybody who publishes a Concept. That would mean that straight-away the openIDEO team would know whether the contributor is putting themselves forward to help.

The question could simply be another boy in the Concepting form, but perhaps instead of a free text area it could be a drop-down menu.

i.e. you have to select from "yes", "no" or "maybe"

What kind of social impact does this concept achieve?

Within the social network of openIDEOers this could be a way not just to increase social impact but also for people to support their own ideas.

However it could also create negative behaviors:
- some people are always going to say "yes"
- some people are always going to say "no", they just want to ideate and that doesn't make their concepts any less valuable

Therefore i would recommend to maximise social impact that this field should be visible only to openIDEO administrators, as it is really only relevant once the challenge reaches a realisation stage.

What skills are required to take this concept forward?

The ability to change the openIDEO concepting form

How do you envision this concept being supported financially?

Should be very low cost to whoever builds/maintains the website!
