    I have been planning a site that allows site submissions from merchants who accept bitcoins where people can rate and review their service and I have noticed many people are asking for such a site.I have a domain,directory script  and hosting available all I am missing is the skills and availability to implement the site.If you have the spare time and skills to work on this project you can take a %50 equity in future income from the site which will have paid and free services and also display your own ads and links.Of course bitcoin will be an accepted payment and will need to be integrated into the site.I think with the future growth of bitcoin a merchant directory is definitely needed.

    There is a demo of the site here-http://demo2.directorypress.net/?dd=New-Directory

    I know in future there are plans for distributed reputation systems and other things but in the meantime a business directory will help introduce quality merchants to new bitcoin users to lessen the chance of dodgy operators.

I've done webpage development, including working with wordpress, which looks like what this is based on.  I haven't done this in particular, but I have a lot of free time and would be glad to work on getting it all together.  If you'd like to send a private message letting me know what sort of features you are looking for we can exchange e-mails and I can get to work on tinkering around with this and see if we can get it done up properly.

Would you want merchants to be able to add themselves or need to be added by an admin? 

Tarot Card Readings for Bitcoins, available via e-mail, phone, skype or IM of your choice.  Inquire for price, quite reasonable.

Yes it is wordpress.I set up the script in demo/test mode you can see here http://bitcoin.me/.It should give you some idea of the capabilities.
I havent added many plugins yet.The gd star rating plugin is too much to get my head around but it has many of the options that are needed for the thumbs up/down rating system and is recommended by the designers.The merchants can add themselves as there will be a choice of plans including a free option.The script has lots of documentation and support as well as a list of recommended plugins.

I'm thinking of setting up some sort of bitcoin-related website myself. I've got the domain http://coinners.com for that, but not sure on what I'm going to build there. I wonder, since it has been a while that you talked about that, have you built your site already? If not, any reason why? I'm trying to figure out what's the best site I could build to help make Bitcoin more popular among the masses.
