Vote for Most Practical Ideas

Choose Most Doable Ideas : Set Up A Part of the Ideas Section Like the " Best " except vote for realism

Halfbakery is great fun and it would not be good to do away with wittiness. But, there are many good ideas that get buried in the jesting.

If there were a voting / ranking section off the front page for the most practical ideas not yet baked, then it would give them a chance to be seen.

       If any of my ideas needs more time in the oven, I just anno on it ... move it to the top for a bit ...

       It's called churning, [Fort], and is discouraged. Anyway, it doesn't mean your ideas are the most practical.

       We've had an idea before for voting in categories, which would allow you to vote on practicality as well as general quality. See [amadeus]'s 2D voting idea, where votes are made on the axes of good/bad and baked/unbakable, and the annotations.

       Why do the practical ones get special consideration? It's not like we're actually ever going to create any of these.   

       If you've got one worthy of creating, don't post it here. Go do it and make your millions.

       If I wanted practical, I'd put some clothes back on.

       Most of the time I wouldn't have a clue whether an idea was practical or not and neither would I have any idea about the capability of any of the other 'bakers to make such a judgement. So this would be a complete waste of time.

       Practically.   

       Ahem: Massive Solar Collector Array (of Evil?)   

       Evilly practical. Practically evil.

       The really GOOD ideas are the closest ones to being real. So I would think that the "Best/Top Ten" would basically be repeated in the "Most Practical" list.

       I was tempted to mention the Blackholeapult, but it's practicallity is still under debate.
