Besides, I'm obviously not fit to collaborate with anyone with 3000+ fans. Perhaps you could add a feature to show only people with about the same number of fans and batting average. That way, newbies like me can collaborate with newbies in other fields. :)
That's a horrible idea. You shouldn't be afraid to collaborate with people just because they have more fans or have a larger portfolio.
That's what game jams were all about. How someone with 10 years of experience with flash could work with someone still learning and create something awesome. Or even, maybe this 10 year vet may learn something.
You can't imagine how many great things would't be, if people had been afraid to ask.
Maybe Dan Paladin was saying "Man, this Tom guy made this website and is so awesome, he'd never work with me", and POOF, no Alien Hominid, no Castle Crashers, no Behemoth (and possibly NG may never have been where it is now)
And from personal experience, Concerned Joe would have never earned as much money as it did, or garnered the portal score/views if Xelu hadn't sent this random PM to Johnny Utah asking for help.
You never know if the other person would be thrilled that you contacted them, and maybe they've been a fan of YOU all along.
Don't be afraid to collaborate.
