So I have had this thought in my head for some time but because of work and other stuff I didn't consider it until now. Based on many threads where you can clearly see known scammers (Simon Stepsys & co. comes in mind) jumping from one scam to another, I was wondering if there would be interest in some type of website listing every known scammers / ponzi / scams / pyramid schemes as well as their operators and people involved so this way it would be easier to keep track of everyone.
Let's keep Stepsys as my main example: the way I imagine it is if you click or search for Simon Stepsys (you could also search the company name), you would have a table showing what company he is involved in right now, if he was ever in previous scams and if yes you could see those listed as well. You could link / post screenshot of threads on this forum proving that from day 1 people calling it a scam were not wrong, were not doubters / skeptics / haters, but were right because some of these people are serial scammers and people keep falling for it. As time goes more features could be added.
The reason I am asking is because most of the content would be user submitted, I cannot do that all by myself since I don't have all the knowledge most people here have. Also, I do not want it to be seen as some type of competitor to this forum, more as of additional information and resources. I personally think it could be useful for keeping track of everything, instead of being ordered in threads that can go inactive for a long time and can be hard to go through when there's 100s of pages. Also possible future victims could see clearly. I would make it so people with accounts with the right privileges (mainly interested people from this forum as I'm only posting here) could edit / add information on an admin control panel type page.
My professional background is web development, so everything that has to do with the website except most of the content itself would be done by me. I have no idea how long it would take since I'd do it on my free time, but it is not that complicated. What I need is to know 1) if this is allowed by forum staff, 2) if you think it could be a good idea or not since forums are fine, and 3) if you would contribute some content.
To give you an idea there is a quick layout I made below.
Thanks for reading and possibly considering this idea!
