Proposal / Overview:
The purpose of this site is to provide a dating/meeting site in which good looking people will only be introduced to good looking people as opposed to tradional meeting sites in which you risk meeting someone with sub par looks or attractiveness. The site will have two features to it. The first is a rating feature similar to hotornot.com. The second feature is a dating/hook-up section in which the rated members can meet. The concept of meeting new people and interacting with others online can be linked to how sites like [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], and [url removed, login to view] work. Except this site will have the added feature of restricting people from other people based on a rating.
1.) The website will allow members and visitors to the site to rate members on the site. Visitors to the site will rate members of the site on the basis of the member's looks & personality. There will be two scales showing a rating of 0 through 10. One 0 thourgh 10 scale will be used to rate the member's looks, while the other 0 through 10 scale will be used to rate the member's personality. Together the scales will add up to a rating score from 0 to 20. Visitors and members to the site will view a brief member profile with a photo of the member and a personality description which will be the basis of how they rate a member.
2.) Once someone has been rated on the site by multiple members they will have a rating average of all the times they have been rated. For example, if a member has been rated three times, such as a 20, a 15, and a 17, their actual final rating would be 20+15+17/3 which equals=17.33. After a members average has been determined they will be able to start meeting other members on the site through message boards, forums, chat rooms, and member profiles which include a friends list that the member can create. The site will allow the member to search for other people on the site that have silmilar intrests, friends in common, by region, and through other variables. The most important variable will be the rating. A member with a rating of 17.33 can choose to only meet other users with the same rating or higher. They can also make it so that anyone with a lower rating than them cannot meet them.
Aside from the concept of the site i want it to look very sharp and pleasing to the eye. It has to be very appealing to all users, as well as easy and fun to use. I am willing and almost 90% sure that i want to use a FLASH type design for this project.
