What if there was a pre-bakery stage to the HB?

Often people's ideas get pounded not because they're a bad idea, but because they've not been thought through... or had some others eyes look over it before posting. Ideas _should_ evolve. They're rarely fully viable straight off the keyboard.

Although possible, it's impractical to modify the original description once it's been put "out-there" - Impractical because everyone would have to re-read every description every time they re-visit an idea.

I'm suggesting some holding zone, for those who wish to use it, where Master-bakers can pre-judge, and knead new submissions to help new-comers and regular visitors alike.

       Modify the description, it's okay. Really. That's why you can.   

       "Everyone" wouldn't have to reread the idea, because "everyone" didn't read it to begin with. So a few votes are out of sync? Big deal.   

       Remember, the initial readership of regulars is only a small part of the audience (and they'll reread it if you change it - hey, they have time enough to hang out *here*); the rest are people who know something about the one thing you're posting about, and are looking for something related, or have that one idea themselves.   

       Although "masterbaker" would certainly be an apt term, from the sound of it.

       I'd like to see a (off site?) ranking in two dimensions:   

       (X) Usefulness (Y) Bakeability   

       ...but then, this {{{is}}} the halfbakery...
not_only_but_also, Aug 24 2005

       Actually, [Dub], friend, buddy, ideas that get more then twenty quoissants here are moved to the fullbakery, that is Fullbakery.com, to be discussed by an expert panel and judged.
zeno, Aug 24 2005

       "masterbaker" - ha!
zen_tom, Aug 24 2005

       [zeno]Oh, erm... it seems to be off-line at the moment... I'll try again in 10, shall I?   

       [zen_tom] I grinned too... I count 6 levels of allegory

       cut straight to Halbakery IV.

       Is that the one where they beam-up the whales?
Dub, Aug 27 2005

       No, it's the one with all the jawas, and Greedo. Anyway, even if it is the one with the whales, can you imagine a Halfbakery forced into the mid 80's? It would look terrible. Invisible spaceship? Invisible budget more like.
zen_tom, Aug 27 2005

       [benfrost]Ow, yeah. Now I remember... That's the one where Halfbakery wins.
Dub, Aug 27 2005

       Personally, I am much more in favour of being called (if I may be so presumptuous) a masterbaker than a wit who (often) resides on the Halfbakery, or Half-wit.
Canuck, Aug 30 2005

       Hold on a minute, did [jutta] just manage to get away with calling us all wankers?   

       (Of course, when I say 'us' I actually mean, 'you', plural...)

       [Susan]too? You mean there have been others?

       Do not pretend not to know you frequently delete anno's.
Susan, Sep 09 2005

       Yes, but I usually ask, though.
