I started this thread to discuss a possible project based on the algorithms
idea written at the bottom of the page. I assumed that the best way to know
which mentors would be interested in guiding me would be starting a thread.
Please let me know if I was wrong.

Yes, this thread was just an introductory thread so that I could get things
started. Is this not a good way to introduce? I would definitely go on to
write a proposal after some discussion, but if I was supposed to write a
proposal in the introductory thread itself, I'm sorry, I'll do that soon.

I am new to this thread and the list in general and usually the norm is to
introduce yourself first, get some reflection from the organization and go
about working on your idea. I'm sorry if I did anything wrong here. Please
let me know if I did.

I'll also start looking into the ideas on the ideas page and re-evaluate
what projects I can do, and post another thread about one of the ideas from
the ideas list if they interest me.
