So, I don't have time to work on TaskSmash, but I think it has a lot of potential. Months ago I wrote a blog post offering accounts on it, and despite not linking to it since, there are more than 100 tasks posted every day. People really love it and email me about it all the time.
The PHP code is a bit of a mess. I was a really bad coder when I wrote it, so it's basically just one big disaster of a php file. It's all functional, just not organized or documented. So you'd probably want to clean that up. The big feature that needs to be implemented (that would seriously only take a day) would be to have recurring tasks. There's an API for it that I never made public, and someone is making an android app for it right now.
If this sounds like something you'd like to put time into, you can have 49% of it for $1. I'm keeping 51% not because I actually want to control it, but because I want to be able to look out for the best interest of the users on it, since they trusted me when they signed up. If you decide that you want to sell all the email addresses to a marketer, I need to be able to override that.
You can keep it free, you can make a premium version and charge for it, or you can try to charge a small amount for the existing functionality to NEW users (I'd like existing users to get it free for life). I don't care whether we make money on it or just keep it free. If you make money, you have to give me 51%, if you don't make money, that's fine, too.
I can keep TaskSmash running forever as-is, and obviously don't need help with that. So if you do take it on, I will expect you to actually work on it, both making it better and getting more people using it. Your 49% will vest monthly with a one year cliff. In other words, if you say you're going to take it over and give up within the first year, I get the project back. Not trying to screw you, just trying to make sure that the person who takes it over actually cares about working on it (not full time, just as a hobby is fine).
Let me know if you're interested.
