You wouldn't be wasting your time on the Conglomerate project. I was saying you were a subject matter expert (SME) on certain things. There is this thing planned for one of the phases (P2 and/or 3, I can't remember) called the SME component or module of the website.
If a P2 Subsidiary is very active in the SME module, it should get enough attention to become far busier. I imagine many Subsidiaries would not be able to keep up with demand and would start to ignore "Info Requests" from would-be customers, losing their business to other active/subscribed SMEs.
Basically there are Subjects of knowledge. Consumers, researchers, etc. submit Info Requests. The SMEs subscribe to whatever Subjects they want, to receive Info Requests, giving them the opportunity to market themselves.
Consumers, researchers, etc. will see histories of SME Info Request Responses, with the ability to follow/post on threads, when they investigate Subjects. It's basically a search engine for the module.
As I was saying, eventually SMEs will stop responding when they get too busy and the next best SME will get more attention. The SME's Subsidiary ad with logo, slogan and contact info (and link to Subsidiary's webpage) is displayed with their Responses.
Hmm. wonder if I should copy-paste that somewhere... Ah well, isn't the first time I typed it out, won't be the last!
