Default Shisha Recipe Website?

I've been thinking about starting up a website to database all the crazy homemade shisha recipes we shisha chefs come up with. I have some scripts that I could customize to let the user submit, search, sort and rate recipes. You could browse the database and sort the list by flavor, rating, date submitted, etc. Is this worth putting time and effort into? Would you guys be interested in seeing this come to fruition? I'd be paying for this out of pocket and building it in my free time so it'd be an act of love and not for any monetary gain.

You sold me. Temporary address until the domain is working. I'll keep everyone updated. Tentative launch date is early fall 2010, but I'll be letting the HP community in on beta testing.

Cool OSS. Right now there is a redirect at the address listed above for site review. Hopefully they'll have that cleared shortly. Looking forward to seeing it. Smoke happy.

I see where you were going with the logo design. and just to give you some ideas (I'm a Graphic Designer by trade) I put this together. I'm not the best but I love to make corporate identities.

I hope you enjoy the example. and hey, maybe you or anybody else would like my help just message me. (it is a very low res jpg)

Bowl looks way too small

Other than that, I like this better than the other one.

Thanks for the encouragement, guys.

Boots, I used the mortar and pestle design because I wanted to hit on the creative points of making your own recipes. I tried a few designs using a full hookah but I felt it was too busy. I'm going for a simple, colorful "Web 2.0" kind of design with this. I like what you did though and I love that font - what is it? If you have any ideas that combine simplicity and a nice pop of color with a hookah, I'm all ears.

Same goes for anyone else. Let me know what YOU want out of this and I'll do my best to implement your ideas.

A thousand times yes, do this. If I master making my own Syrian-style moassel one day thanks in part to Shisha Chef I'll probably write you into my will.


You should chat with Hajo.

So I decided to go with WordPress as the foundation for the website rather than build it from the ground up. This will allow the site to be ready much faster and it'll be easy for anyone I decide to bring on the team as a moderator to learn the ropes. There are a lot of really great mods and plugins out there that take just minutes to install, so if anyone knows anything about WordPress and knows of something that will be beneficial to this project, let me know.

When I see a mortar and pestle, I think of a doctor or scientist (just my opinion I know cooks use them also).

You can try different angles of the mortar and pestle, a side view maybe better than a overhead.

All in all great idea. I think the only ones who tell you not to do it are the ones who are going to steal your idea. so what are ya waiting for!

If you have ideas of what colors you like it would be helpful to tell the group so we can help you better. Like what color do you want the color popin hookah to be?

Anyway, here are some others, with a single mortar & pestle. As you see each logo is the same but different.
