A vision is an idea before it becomes a project. Some visions are intended as visions, just to show the idea.

I don't like this 10 posts requirement policy. How is a new member able to contribute without having to make 10 stupid posts to be able to contribute something meaningful?

This banana emoticon cracks me up though, and I love using it.
