But I think you'd enjoy it, not the first time I've tried to pass it on to you, and I still remain confidant that you'd learn some things not currently understood, maybe even turn you into a Georgist ...if you were able to find the time......to expand the mind.....jus saying.....
Its too bad really....I've started several threads, made numerous posts about an LVT, Henry George...etc...along with the TRUTH about LAND.......the ROOT of our most pressing issues.......and most of it just sits there due to a lack of understanding....or attention, or motivation...or FEAR of the unknown...perhaps?
Trumps Book! Yeah, I got a copy....an old one though....from 'before' he decided to pursue and take the Throne .
I'm sure that You already know....He didn't actually write it....and I'm not sure of his contributions.....to it?
However, Its clearly a capitalist blueprint ....albeit an interesting picture of a die hard (take no prisoners) LAND speculator...RE Tycoon...for those interested in such things...
Does anyone know how much a website like this would cost to get started and operate?
You may want to give him a shout out for more details.....but it wasn't that long ago (last week maybe) so between us we could look at his recent posts, heh?
....or he'll see this and respond....
If anyone here is interested in building the contest website I will pay to get it started and donate $1000 to the prize pot. It's hard to say how it would play out, all we can do is try.
Or you could just use the free hosting provided by the forum providers and just use their subdomain url.
If you start investigating free templates I am sure you'll encounter free website templates, whether through webs.com or Wordpress or some other source with some kind of a public rating system built in to the template.
If you don't know how to set up any of that, once you find a template, I can help you set it all up for free.
But, depending on the functionality you require, I don't trust myself to build a rating website from scratch.
Another way is to start a sub Reddit for the contest. Sub reddits have a way for people to rate threads, I think.

"The stress of nature never ends, but at a certain level still other driving forces originate which put the whip to the creative power of man with a multiplied force... The new relations are detected first by a few (with the finest moral tentacles), afterwards by more, then they are consolidated in rules which begin to push aside the earlier moral code and in the end eliminate it."

I recently bought hosting and domain name for terre-une.com and I will be happy to have it at your disposal for this project -- it's just a matter of creating a subfolder, eg www.terre-une.com/contest/
As fsir said, the hard part is to set up the website...
hosting on a private and fast server will cost you 10$ a month + 15$ a year for domain name registration .
the programing of the website is fairly easy, and i could do it if you like.
the problem is security and fraud...
Money invites corruption and fraud, and due to the open and public nature of the Internet it is almost impossible to prevent it.
pot start with 1000$ but what if it grows to 50000$ ? no matter how much i secure the server there is still the possibility of voter fraud, and i don't want to have this responsibility. maybe some other programmer here is willing to accept this burden.
you also can't trust me, Phil(no offense intended), fsir(no offense intended) , or the reddit programmers(offense intended ) .
how would you explain to the people who donated money that someone scammed you voting system?
another question - are you sure you are attracting the right people by having a cash prize?
if there is no money involved than i will be happy to assist you with everything you need.
When it comes to hosting and security I'm pretty much clueless, so whatever you guys think is most likely to run smooth I'm in!
I think this would be a great project for Terre Une, it could be a good way to start building the community! Could the non-profit association accept donations and hold the prize?
