I was wondering if there is any easy way for anyway to store an idea, so that nobody can steal your IP.

Just a kid asking a question. Smiley

IP deals with the implementation, not concept. The closest thing you can get to protecting an idea is a patent, which isn't generally possible with game design ideas. That is, there's no real way for you to 'protect' your ideas. Chances are, brilliant as it may be, no-one will actually want to steal them, and you can probably develop them better by discussing them. People often become very secretive and protective of their ideas when, if you look at it, it's really irrational.
