Questions worth answering

via the very sharp Stephen Irven:

* What is the primary reason for having it?

* Who will be using it, and in what way? (Is it a broadcast medium, or collaborative, or something else entirely? What sort of people will be interested in it?

* What kind of information will it be focused on?

* Is there another website doing something similar? How is this going to be different?

* Has anyone done something similar, but ended up with a result that you don't like? What has led to this?

* Are the aims and objectives likely to change over a 12, 24, 36 month timescale? Is there any way to envisage or predict what might be needed down the line?

* How many people are likely to be involved with using or contributing to this (in a 12, 24, 36 month timescale)

* Is the whole site for public use, or are there likely to be private or restricted areas?

* What are your planned timescales for making and using it? Are there several phases?
