Are you looking for profit or just want to get your name out or what?
Anyway, I have an idea, but my main problems are Geeklog's lack of product management.The closest thing is Media Gallery
, but it lacks customizable fields (although I must mention its static fields do grow with time - for example, soon it would let you display keywords and categories alongside each media item) and remote media (if you plan to focus on flim stuff and want to avoid copyright issues).
I'll elaborate more about the first more concerning issue - whatever you choose (books, fillms, etc. - I hope you meant it as a choice list and not a site dedicated to everything), you would have to rely on users on writing manual stuff inside the only text field (other than the obligatory "title", of course) MG supplies ("description" ).
Let's take a site about films. You can't really expect users to follow your "orders" to write separate lines like:
Director - X
Writer - Y
Obviously in no time you'd have one user writing "Director - X / Writer - Y", the other "Writer - Y / Director - X" and the third:
(that's without even considering all of the misspellings).
And the more they mess up, the more mess it would be for the admins to edit.
Of course, you can live with it if you settle for just one field (e.g. you'd tell everyone "description" would be just for "the director" ), but you're bound to want to grow. I bet IMDB started with like 5 fields for each film (which is still better than one, though) and now it's probably closer to 50.
