2. Implementation's characteristics

Dobre Pomysły Krosno [English: Good Ideas Krosno], is a city’s consultative-advisory website. On the website, citizens can propose their ideas concerning solutions for local issues and needs. The submitted ideas are then discussed and voted.

Each new user, after setting up and individual account, can immediately add new proposals for changes in his or her neighbourhood. A new idea is added by clicking on a special button, where a user can add a detailed description in a proper field,  as well as add links, justification and graphics. After submitting the idea is visible for other users of the website, who can vote ‘for’ or ‘against’ the idea. Each user is entitled to only one vote daily. The votes, both ‘for’ and ‘against’ are calculated as a total sum of points, which then lists the idea in the general website ranking. The ideas displayed on the website are visible to all users, also those not signed-in. However, the voting feature is available only for the registered users.

The city authorities or other local government organization conducting consultations, encourage users to participating in the process, by means of rewards awarded to the most active users.

The portal incorporates social features, enabling to create individual accounts, following selected threads, engaging in discussions (in a system similar to an Internet forum). Each of the registered users has a ‘career path’ – a scoring system for activity on the website – submitting new ideas, voting and posting comments. Users with the largest number of points, shall be invited to discussion as experts, at a further stage of implementation.
The project is not integrated with external social networking media.
