Hey Arafat,

Great suggestions.  I'll go in a little later this week and update some of those items.  I was in a hurry and just wanted to get something up there to start.  It definitely needs work and assistance from everyone in the group and I appreciate the feedback and suggestions.

Hey Everyone,

I've actually put up a few ideas on the wiki.  It's not an exhaustive
list, just something to get us started.  Take a look, add some ideas,
start a debate - whatever works for you!
I like what you've done. I would suggest one thing: add a business case to each item. e.g. You have an item that fans should be able to link to bands. I'm not sure what this means. If you add a business case such as "so that fans have a portal page that tracks their favorite bands" then it becomes more descriptive.

From a scrum/agile perspective this format has several benefits:
- It makes estimation easier.
- It makes it easier to sort features by order of importance.
- Acceptance tests have a context for their inclusion.
- If we have an external customer then they have to defend their request for a feature. This cuts down on unnecessary requests.

This is good if you're going to do follow a "release early, release often" paradigm.
