Hey @rupeshiya, why don’t you create a talk post regarding your ideas, then community members will take a look into that and guide you there. Without knowing your ideas and plan, we couldn’t assign some one to you.

Feel free to post any of your ideas here or as a new talk post.

Thanks @suthagar23,since I fear that if anyone else will try to implement my idea that’s I am not asking in the channel and want to get some feedback from mentors first then post it in the group .So should I post it now , What do you think ? Actually my idea is related to a web app to solve real world problem .

Since we all are in Open Source community, you don’t need to worry about this :smile:. It should be open to all. Actually, when you make it to public then only you can get more and more feedback and suggestions from others which could increase the productivity and effective of your idea.

We haven’t any restrictions for your ideas. So you can post it what ever you think and ask others to provide suggestions. After you can get a better idea through a continue discussions regarding that. If you already have known any of our community mentors who worked related to your idea, then you can tag them to notify.
