Paul and Joel and I have been working on redoing the web site to make it more collaborative. Picture this…Anyone can post their own regimen on Acne.org, complete with videos and product suggestions. Then the rest of us can try their regimen and rate it. The best regimens will naturally float to the top. We can then program the Acne.org homepage to automatically update to show the community’s favorite regimens right there when people log in.
Is your mind blown? Mine is I am so excited about the opportunity the Internet affords us to share our experience with each other and really boil down what works and what doesn’t.
We’re also working on a product suggestion page where you guys can suggest products to be made, at what percentages, and including what ingredients. Again, the rest of us can get in there and suggest changes to the product until we come to a consensus, or something approaching that. Then I can either make the products for us, or we can ask other manufacturers to get on it!
We also have a doctor-listing page on the back burner where everyone can recommend their dermatologist or plastic surgeon (scars). We’ll probably wiki this page only in a positive direction. For instance, you can send a doctor a thumbs up, but probably not a thumbs down. It feels better to stay positive with the doctors ratings.
