I don't think you have to make ongoing projects inaccessible to the
public. It would increase hurdles, encourage an "Us vs Them" mentality
and reduce chances of inspiring people.

You just need to be very clear about the project status.

It might happen that some not fully thought-through concept will be
reported about in a misleading way, then. Seen stuff like that happen,
it is very annoying at first, but usually 2 weeks later it shows to not
really matter at all.

See the design workflow summary here:

Can you please make any comments regarding the appropriateness of the
workflow and project states. Any additional functionality of the
Request-Develop-Feedback-Approve-Launch sequence and inputs and
outputs to the system should be built now.
I hope this satisfies all those designers out there who are hungry for
a taste of what is to come.

I have my troubles with reading that diagram. However,
"Request-Develop-Feedback-Approve-Launch" sounds good. Does "brainstorm
system" refer to something like

Especially when dealing with visual design, it is critical to get past
simple "I like / I don't like it" reactions. As far as a kind of voting
is required, I would try to ask something along the lines of:
"In how far does the proposal meet the briefing/requirements"?
With maximally 5 values from "not at all" to "most excellently so!"
