Idea for user interaction
I hope I can explain this properly, if not I apologize for any confusion, but when I was doing something on wikipedia I had this idea for OpenFarm.org.
One thing that's going to happen when the site launches is there is going to be a need to fill the site with Data based on each members personal knowledge/experience/academic background/etc. The problem is, each member might have extensive knowledge about a particular plant but forget to submit the information because they're filling in other areas of the site. When someone, who's not a member or who is less knowledgable in gardening searches they may discover that the plant they're looking isn't yet in the database.
When a user searches for a plant and nothing is returned, we should add the option for them to add the missing plant to a list that appears in users personal accounts. Users who are active in updating information can scan the list and see what plants they have knowledge on and fill in the information.
When it's been filled in, the original person is messaged so they can come check it out.
I hope that's clear...
I also understand if this is an extra feature that might not be able to be added until later (Don't want feature creep), I just thought it would be helpful to create something like this so that if users notice a plant that they have the knowledge on is missing information they can add the information to the site.
