Because we have no simple quick way to check the impact of ideas.

We add a short word "Baked" to a link which leads to a predecessor of the idea. That's what the hyenas are interested in, but there is the other side of the coin: if the idea looks truly original, we are interested in its outcomes, and what influence did it after all make. We want a different word next to such link.

The word "impact" however is too strong to denote any outcome of an idea, such as a follow-up conversation in another place of the internet. [marked-for-outcome], simply [an-outcome], or simply [outcome] seem to be sufficient a tag to enable us to distinguish quickly, what were the outcomes of the ideas, because searching for a string "outcome]" does not return any results.

Now someone needs going through all of the ideas and checking this out... It's a lot of work, but I'm sure it would elucidate the overall impact of Halfbakery on the modern world, and that could be an encouraging reward for our ideation.

What's more -- perhaps each user is best familiar with the results of their ideas.

       This sounds like a good idea - let everyone know how it turns out, won't you ?

       Not really meta level halfbakery.

       Forgot to mention that this concerns links.

       Sometimes I see things on TV that have been previously halfbaked here. Then also, sometimes I see / hear something that I think someone already baked on a TV sit-com or something, that someone has posted as an original idea here. (GIGO)

       How kind of you to volunteer!

       Yes, yes; please elucidate. And remind people who bake my grand schemes that I am due a Tshirt.

       Royalties all 'round!   

       Laughing Hyenas and Vulture Capitalists. Sounds like David Attenborough meets Dragons den.

       // David Attenborough meets Dragons den //   

       "Survival of the Fittest" ... "Evolution by Natural Selection" ... Charles Darwin would be throwing his top hat in the air, yodelling.

       'Vulture Capitalists' - is that a reference to Hilary Davey's hunching shoulder pads? (Devey, afraid not).

       I had an idea that was deleted because of "cruelty to animals", but then I saw that exact idea come up on a US late night show many years later. It was an exact copy of the drawing that I made.   

       It was a dog carrier with a muzzle at one end and a screw at the other end, that screwed into the rear end of the dog.   

       I think it might have got half a laugh, and was quickly dropped behind the table.   

       Just so you know...   

       Carry on.

       [Ling], you made me laugh. Genius. If the idea was found to be baked independently of HB, we can't say it's an outcome of the idea posted: we still say it's baked, albeit later. So, but if you say "It was an exact copy of the drawing that I made," then it has to qualify.
Inyuki, Sep 27 2012
  

       I think it's a good'un, this. And people do like to point out their idea has become a lucrative reality, though depressingly lucrative for someone else.
