I posted an article recently, describing that i'm brainstorming about a possible site feature.

As things, it'd be nice to have more input, so, here's my question.

I don't promise it becoming a reality anytime soon, or anywhere this year, but i am gathering the ideas, and trying to figure out how much is possible.

if i were to create a site intended for storing thousands of bookmarks, which offers the ability to rate / rank those links, add images for others to see, allows you to rate the relevance of those images, offers a RSS readout of each of those links in a nice overview, had a big forum, was fully customizeable, and.. more.

What sort of features would you be looking for in such a site?

This sounds neat. I think it would be helpful to have the ability to filter links based on how recently they have been updated. So for instance, I only want to see blogs that have been updated in the last month. Also, some form of categorization or tagging.

Yep, that's also on the list.
Category, sub category, update frequency.
RSS(which would auto sort), RSS for favorites.

Webcomic links, blogs, others.

Initially webcomics and blogs would be the main type of link i'd want into the database, but more would eventually be added as well. The tagging and sorting system would have to be fairly dynamic and customizeable.

Personally I don't use sites like you described. Inevitably, the links, images, etc... that get ranked aren't links, images, etc... that I want to see.

Perhaps if there was a way to filter the links, images, etc... by date updated (or freshness), perhaps it would be somewhat useful.

From a web developer perspective, I wouldn't mind the extra link back to my site. :D

As with all things web related, just give it a try and see how it turns out. Not a lot of investment involved other than some of your time (and maybe a little bit for hosting).

By the sound of things, you're asking for ideas; which can be good, but makes me believe you're not sure what you want from the site. You've got a general idea, but you need to make your personal goals for the site and focus on them.

Then ask for advice once you've met your own goals (which, you'll never do - you'll always make new ones).
