This website has been a tremendous success so far. 1,750 ideas posted, 3,984 comments, 108k votes, 3,552 users. If we make this a yearly thing it could get more people thinking about politics and engaged in the future of our state.
I don't know how much it costs to run this, but it seems like the think tank concept has been working so far. There have been some great ideas and I can only imagine the longer it is up the better the results will be.
Maybe consider leaving it up year round and resetting the results every year or legislative session (keeping a backlog of past years in an archive on the website for perusal).
