It is unlikely that you're going to be able to sell a game scenario.

If you write up a detailed design document about your game, you may be able to assemble a team and start looking for funding/ fund some proof of concept work. If you look for funding outside of your own pockets, you will need a detailed business plan that describes how long the game will take to produce, how much it will cost to make, how it will be marketed and to whom, how much you will sell it for, the amount of revenue you expect, and so on. You should do that anyhow, if you want to make money. However, for an online game, this may not be enough either-- they are extremely expensive to make and maintain, not to mention difficult.

Realistically, it's unlikely that you'll be able to sell a game idea. Sloperama's FAQ #1 can offer some insight into that for you.

If after reading the FAQ, your approach is still going to be to sell your idea, then I guess the right place to start would be working on a detailed game design document including price and time estimates for the various segments of the game. And probably start reading literature on making contacts, pitching ideas and making good impressions because you'll need those at a bare minimum to pull off this unlikely feat.

Supply and demand cause the value of ideas to approach 0. The value is in successfully executing the idea. For inexperienced game designers, a lot of the design happens when they are implementing their vision and come across holes they had not considered. Getting around the technical, art, design and other limitations is often the hardest part.

No. No developer can help you. It's the same problem. They have to sell your idea to a publisher, but before they can do that, they have to create a demo and a budget and a schedule. Why should a developer spend all the time and resources to do all that for your idea, when they already have a lot of ideas of their own?
