Well said! No one wants to waste time with things that don't matter.

comment Can I release material related to a work and maintain my rights before publishing?
@Lauren I guess because some of the ideas existed long before I even thought to write anything, and I always had a habit of sharing (from childhood) about my imaginations/ideas. Plus I'm a Christian and bit of an open source enthusiast, so I it kinda rubs off... (all the share! share! share! -ness :P). Apart from just sharing, some of my reasoning is based on wanting to form a community around an idea first (before forming a community around a "book"). Thanks btw! (I'm almost out of space for this comment :D).

To answer if anyone would notice (as I am a web developer) - yes, they would ;). Trust me, even the most obscure sites get noticed within hours or days. With that said - you're pretty encouraging :D! Thanks!

@Lauren lol! Good humour about star trek :D! I am talking about maintaining rights, I will try to rephrase the question a bit.

Well said ;). Also rather positive, much better than what most seem to say.

@Standback - that was intended to be light hearted ;)... Rule of the internet - always assume the best intentions first. For your sake, and to avoid further confusion, I removed that part :)...
