I listened to this interview on Impact Theory. James Altucher talks about working on creative muscles. He writes 10 new ideas everyday for improving different types of businesses. 

I wanted to attempt something similar for 200wordsAday. 

1) Add an announcement board for major news or changes.
2) Giveaway badges like StackOverflow to recognize writers with milestones like first 30Day streak.
3) Giveaway badges to recognize writers that have a high comment count. (encourages reading and supporting other's post)
4) Provide complete list of past topics of the week for newer folks to get ideas.  
5) Provide a list of the top 10/20 posts that have the most comments for people to read and learn from.
6) Have 10 ways to improve this site as the topic of the week to get the users to actively brainstorm. 
7) Create a collection option for 3-4 common topic titles (eg how-to in business, marketing, writing)  based on posts so far.  Writers can opt to have their posts submitted to a global collection section as opposed to an individual collection. Makes reading and learning from the very valuable content easier. 
8) Add the ability to easily include images in the posts.  
9) Add a section for recommended reading - Books/Blogs/Articles.
10) Add the ability to personalize profile page.

    @keni
    we posted this project with @philh (Didn't we @basilesamel)
    https://200wordsaday.com/words/should-we-sit-on-a-couch-120055c868e1b701d3
    and some of our ideas overlap, just the description is different - like (1) - we proposed Slack like channel, but inside 200WaD with the info about most interesting "events"; (2) we suggested a special "Lounge" for 30posters, 50posters, PostBreakers... (3) I was actually thinking about the comment thing (as there was a time... hihihi) but if one cares for badges like crazy, it's actually possible to pump up the number
    (4) for is great, yea... we wanted a special "board" for ppl signing in with advises, topic suggestions and link to posts dealing with these issues
    (6) IS FANTASTIC!
    I must say that I would make a vote/referendum for (8) and (10) - I feel intensely AGAINT killing the "clarity" of the posts
    (9) is a bit like one of the Writers Lounges we suggested, to make it possible to organize smt like clubs around different topics and ideas

      @lucjah - Thank you for the detailed comments @lucjah.
      I like the lounge idea :) We are creating a tribe of sorts so why not. I really would like to have a way to reach folks that disappear. I don't like it and there should be a way to reach out to them.
      Most of these ideas were me brainstorming based off of what I have noticed in community like sites and services out there. I am sure a few of them would be impractical to apply here just for the programming aspect but I wanted to list them all so @basilesamel could get a wide list to select from.
      Thank you again for reading and commenting.

      @keni yes, the disappearing ones actually break my heart
      and I write about that, "demanding" ways to contact them
