    Default [CONCEPT] The committee of construction

    Hello everyone!

    In the light of encouraging external companions for the game and encouraging socializing, I'm posting here to suggest a new website that can be done for the game!

    So,

    What is this?
    The committee of construction is a website where people searching for someone to build their world can search for builders and see their past constructions so that they can decide if they want to hire them.


    How does that work?

    Getting started for builders
    It's a website where builders signup for an account. The committee then asks the builder for the worlds that builder has constructed, and checks if they are legit. The committee will then attach the worlds built by the builder to his profile, where every thing he has built will appear.

    Finding the builder
    Finding the builder is easy. On the index page, we'll have 3 filters:
    Order by [newest, top rated, most built]

    Contacting the builder
    Contacting the builder is a 1 click action! You just have to click the "Request construction" button and input your email (so we can notify you) and the price you want to pay the builder for doing the world (excluding materials). Once you've done that, we'll receive your request and will ask the builder if your payment is enough.
    If everything goes right, we'll email you with all the details, and you'll have to deposit the builder's payment before he starts in a special world (owned by the committee) to prevent no-payment after construction scams.
    If the builder refuses the price, we'll email saying the builder doesn't want to do business.

    Construction
    Once construction starts, you'll be providing the builder the materials progressively to prevent material scams (although we'll do our best to pick trusted builders), and once the builder fully finishes your world, he'll receive the payment (and if he doesn't, you get your WLs back).


    When the building ends, you'll have to /renderworld your world and input a rating for the builder so that others know whether or not the builder is worth hiring. The world he built for you will then appear on his profile.


    What do you think?

    People who input their emails to hire a builder will receive a link to click to validate their request.

    I love this idea, this would be an absolutely perfect way to incentivise building again in Growtopia. The problem with building is that it's always so expensive, but this would help combat that by providing builders with a way of actually earning funds for building by building. Definite +1 from me!

    To be completely honest they'd probably still be better than what we're currently getting.

    Thanks for the thumbs up! Will definitely create the website then since you've provided the most valid arguments for that website to be a thing

    I love this idea, this would give builders opportunities to express they'r passion for building and also earn some world locks in process.

    First off, thanks!
    Aaaand, the discord master is here! I'll need you for the discord part of things since I'm planning to let builders register by just using a command that'll directly opt them in. Do you have time or should I do it myself?

    Alright! Ready, set, go!
    This will go live on July!

    Forgot to say that using this service is totally free of charge both for buyers and sellers (meaning the committee will not take taxes on transactions).
    Donations to support the project will be open to public though and will be used to SB about the website in-game (unless Ubisoft is against us doing so)

    Have you researched the demand for this kind of service?

    Sounds more sensible to make a general collaboration platform and use building as one of its subsets. There's not going to much hype or use for an website dedicated solely to this.

    Could you give me some examples please?

    I was thinking of creating multiple branches for the project including a BFG finder tool with BFG Opening times and farmables used in it.

    Main branches include Collaboration Finder, GrowStocks, your phishing thing and GrowAPI that always returns {error: "this idea is terrible and i suck"}.
    Collaboration Finder includes building, magplant, farm managing, and all other kinds of collaborating.

    That's how I'd do it if I had that much time on my hands to spend on the community. Easier to manage and promote. Centering things around your name makes it somewhat easier to remember.

    Okay, noted. Will probably center everything around GrowStocks
