The OGL isn't suitable for this sort of thing, it's more for rules. Now, if people are going to be posting rules, it might make sense to insist they're OGL. "All content posed CC, all rules posted OGL"
See Steve Jackson Games' site's terms and conditions for some of the legal side of things for this sort of site. It's closed content, but they're suitably paranoid about third-party ideas. :-)
