Description#99 ideas+ is a user engagement platform. Ideas are everywhere, but we want to bring them to life. Our starting point was the successfull croudsourcing initiative „99 ideas for a better Austria“ (99 Ideen für ein besseres Österreich), started by the austrian daily newspaper „Die Presse“ in summer 2014. First the reporters of „Die Presse“ gave a testimonial to the authorities of Austria in different fields. Over the course of the summer the readers were invited to contribute with constructive ideas in nine areas such as education, environment, demography, family, etc. In conclusion all the articles and ideas were collected in a print magazine. #99ideas+ is the user engagement platform that helps to bring journalists and readers together. The web interface starts with three interactive graphics that are based on the data material of the ideas. The graphics show the distribution of the ideas divided in topics, federal states and the projecz status. All the existing ideas from the summer project are collected on the platform and are open for discussion and social media interaction. In addition users can submit new ideas or wishes for better standards in Austria trough a web formular. But now comes the tricky part: we want to track the status of each idea. An icon informs about the status of progress (in five levels: Inspiration, Conception, Evaluation, Implemented/Not implemented). Maps and graphics visualize how many ideas are in progress and track where in Austria they are localized. Nine journalists supervize the ideas as Ombudsmen and serve as communicators between the idea and the responsible authority. The importance of the idea is measurable by the number of posts, likes and retweets. 99ideas# is rounded up with events and discussions with authorities hosted by the Presse. On the platform users get information about events, subscription, etc. With the initiative 99ideas+ we want to motivate people for civic engagement and take care of good ideas that would get lost if you dont follow them.
