Windows 7: Have an incredible idea, where do I start?

Have an incredible idea, where do I start?

I have a very good idea that I believe could also potentially be very profitable. However I would love to apply this idea 99% for fun. I'm not really going to tell you what it is but it would be a generally sophisticated website. The reason I'm making this post is to basically ask...where do I start?

I'm currently a Junior in high school and am taking a college level Java programming course which I know probably won't help me much. but this website might also include webcam and other sorts of user input involving a mic and webcam, etc. What types of classes should I try to take? I want to be the designer of my own website. What types of programs should I learn? I'm guessing a bunch of adobe stuff like DreamWeaver.

I've had this idea for awhile now and I'd love to see it come to life, successful or not.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

(:

For us to give you this information we would need to hear your idea in full, we would then after
a lot of consideration, and discussion amongst ourselves, come to the decision that we would
want a share in your business. Let's say 80/20, us being the 80.

Being a bit of a cynic, I would advise you to keep your idea to yourself until you are pretty much able to implement it on your own. Unfortunately, many people (friends and family included) will steal it from you. Talk to your school vocational counseler and any other persons you know who are knowledable in this area -- to get more information about the type of classes and experience you need --- and if you do have to reveal some or all of your idea(s), be sure you can TRUST the person you tell!

Web design is the smallest part of creating a website, so yea you can go and learn Dreamweaver and all that stuff (personally I find web design easier in just a notepad++ or something and write the HTML/CSS myself). Learning a bunch of scripting languages like PHP or JSP can help a lot.

Thank you Imperfect1, and Everlong for legitimate input on this post. I know a little Dreamweaver, but I think I'm going to look into it more and start writing CSS. I found out there is a website creation and design class as an elective in my High School. I'll try to take it as a senior and hopefully start getting this thing going (:

I found this guy called 'thenewboston' on youtube and he does some detailed tutorials on such things. After taking a class and going through every single one of these tutorials I'm hoping that will be enough to get started.

The other thing I was thinking about is if this website had social interaction between people and I wanted it generally clean..wouldn't I need moderators? I figured I could get friends that I trusted, but do people do that sort of thing for free or would I have to pay them? Because I'm very serious about this idea, and I actually have savings started specifically for funding this project.

Also is creating a website typically a one man thing? Because I've heard of people hiring 'help' for creating websites but can someone really help you if you want things to specially look the way you want it, and do the things you want?
