[dev.to] Is there a #hashtag 'looking for skill/collaboration'?

Is there a #hashtag for when someone has a cool idea for a new project and is looking to collaborate with others?
People with experience or an interest in the same niche. Alternatively, if not for collaboration then perhaps someone with a specific skill(set)? (Designer, animator)

Of course I have seen 'looking for open source contributors' but that is not the same.

Since I read 'looking for OS contrib' posts, I think about a webapp for this, like craiglist, for people who're looking for help. :)

Yeah for help, perhaps that too but there's plenty of places to ask for help. I was aiming more at collaboration, start a project together with people that share your interest.

Not:
Who can help me create a cool design for my niche music project?
Looking for someone to create isometric artwork for online game.

But more like:
Who wants to start a community for musicians together?
I have this and that idea for a new type of RPG, who wants to build it from the ground up with me?

I find difficult to meet all people, platforms are always divided by activity dribble or codepen for designer, github for developer, soundcloud for musicians, and translator/tester .. hum nowhere :)

Some projects start on Twitter/Facebook, some on Github. But it could be difficult for non-tech people to be aware of theses projects.

Github is a good platform but if you want to contribute to a music software project they're so many choice, you can find dead project or owner which doesn't accept PR, or don't need your specific help (design, translaction).

Ok πŸ˜€ Let's go ! I'm happy to start my first dev.to related project.

Because we have all Github account, I started here:
github.com/jeffd-dev/helping-list

Feel free to add issue (as enhancement) and comment existing.

All ideas are welcome, project name, technologies, web-hosting, feature and mockup.
