A feedback/brainstorm plugin for groups

Last updated

This plugin offer ability to feedback/brainstorm members of groups. I am inspired from


Members can easily submit and discuss ideas, and vote from 1 to 3 about them. Each member start with 10 points. When it reach zero, he cannot vote. This system prevents fraud and vocal minorities.

Members get back points when an idea is accepted (or declined) by group owner. This make sure people focus on the ideas they care most about.

When user submit idea, live search makes sure that members find similar feedback to vote for rather than create a new (duplicate) entry.

It's a very good system to create a dynamic and fun system for brainstorm and feedback on your group.


  • Live search on idea and highlight result.
  • Submit idea get title from the search form.
  • Top, hot list ideas order by ascendent or descendant.
  • Group owner can set status of idea to under review, planed, started, accepted and declined.
  • Group settings to custom description and question of the brainstorm. Choose if group's members can submit idea without point.
  • All ajaxified votes.

Next step

  • Offer group administrator to custom number of started points
  • Offer group administrator to merge ideas
  • Categories ideas for each group
  • Show idea stats with highcharts.js
  • Connect with a task manager ?
  • Set a ticket system like ???
