It doesn’t matter how creative you are, you will probably find yourself asking for input or presenting your unfinished work to others. We do that so people can give us a clue how to continue or even change the direction in which we a currently heading. It is just normal and our frinds and those close to us in our communities are the natural first target for such attacks.
But let’s be honest, I usually know pretty well what my friends will be telling me even without asking them. Usually, I have a good understanding what some of my friends might enjoy, hate or simply don’t care for. Most of the time, their reactions and direction are still valuable, but sometimes it might be better to ask a complete stranger about his opinion to spark our creativity.

Greifenklaue proposed we could copy this really clever format and adapt is for the German language area.

Starting next week, with the first of two requests forwarded to us as a group.
