We are looking to create a site for a pop music singer. Instead of a traditional website we are looking to make a fan community for the artist which will allow the artist presence to go beyond the music side of things and expand the brand.
WE WANT A SIMPLE CONCEPT
We are not trying to make a myspace here..we are trying to create a safe hip cool and fun place for the singer's fans and anyone to have fun online.
We want to have a system similar to [url removed, login to view]
where visitors register on the site and become a member. The members play games or do other activities such as "write fan fics" to earn points or tokens. These points and tokens then can be cashed in for prizes like posters or CDs or exclusive access to online content...sort of like what miss o does with the vault system it would be great to have users be able to view exclusive photos albums once they have enough points etc.
It is important that there is a system where visitors must become members so they can get access to the content only for members like photo albums of the singer etc.
WE DO NOT NEED ANY DESIGN OR GRAPHIC WORK DONE..we just need a platform set up..we have graphic artists all ready for this project.
I look forward to your responses, please keep in mind the site ideas like [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]
Additional Info (Added 5/17/2008 at 19:49 EST)...
It would be great just to code and set it up, like I said no graphic work is needed so you can just use templates and we can edit the graphics later.
WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR:
*visitors are able to register and become members of the site.
In order to access the content of the site, you must be a member.
*There is a point system. Members earn points when they play games or submit content like fan art and fan fics. Members are able to cash out these points for prizes.
Basically visit [url removed, login to view]
The same interface they have for there users.
For example members are able to write in a "diary" they can save the content in a section in their control panel called "my things" they have the option to submit these things. If they submit they earn points etc.
The best way to understand this is to just visit their site and register for free and see what I am looking to do.
I AM NOT LOOKING TO MAKE A SOCIAL NETWORK..no myspace or facebook stuff..
It is very important that you guys check out [url removed, login to view] just so you can get an idea of the user interface I want to use.
Here is the idea of the point system we want to use:
members earn Points for playing games, submitting creations, referring friends, voting for daily faves and a few other things. Once they register and begin earning them, you'll see your total points displayed in the upper right hand corner of your web page.
These points represent credits..we are not looking to do 2 separate functions like the miss o site with tokens and points we are just looking to have points/credits that will allow users to:
* TO GET ACCESS TO SPECIAL SECTIONS AND WIN STUFF!
* enter into contests to win free stuff, like sweepstakes prizes and Secret Vault keys.
* The higher the users Points total, the more stuff you have access to! When you reach certain point levels, you can unlock Secret sections of the site.
* we do want to incorporate something like the badge system where not only can users win different badges but can use there credits to buy them virtually from the site using the credits.
Miss o has a diary feature, we are not going to need that.
It is important that some sort of "recent blog or news" section is on the site. Something like cute news where blogs and news can be added easily and externally.
what we really need is a programmer who will listen to what we want and provide. What we are looking for is fairly simple and not as technical as it sounds.
Please feel free to message me on here with your ideas and especially if you did check out the site and know what we are going for.

I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A GRAPHIC DESIGNER, CARTOONIST OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. I JUST NEED SOMEONE TO MAKE THE CODE OR SCRIPT..THERE IS NOTHING CREATIVE ABOUT THIS PROJECT THAT YOU WILL BE DOING, IT JUST INVOLVES SETTING IT UP..LIKE CODING AND SCRIPTS AND HOWEVER THAT WORKS.
Teen Community Project
The project details below is only to make you familiar with the site functionality. You are not responsible for any of the graphic design or page design. Your job is to only do the scripting/coding to allow the site to function how it is intended.
Any suggestions or ideas are greatly encouraged. You will be working very closely with the designers.
[url removed, login to view]™ provides a web community for fans of the entertainer that is hip, yet wholesome and a cool place for teens (8 to 18) online.
Raphael York is hip and wholesome with high self-esteem and lots of confidence. He has many interests and always strives to do his best. He provides a positive role model for everyone, especially teens letting them know all things are possible.
Similar to the side bar at [url removed, login to view] this website will have a navigation menu with the following sections:
1. My stuff (SHOWS ONLY ONCE USER HAS LOGGED IN)
Under the My Stuff section is the following places:
Points/tokens (shows how many points/tokens user has earned and what contests they have entered)
Locker (this is where content is stored that the user has saved. For example if they were playing a dress up game and clicked the save option in the game it would save the image in the players locker. Anything in the players locker has the option of being emailed, submitted to a contest or being deleted.
My Stickers/Badges (Shows badges/stickers members have won or bought. Members can click on a badge or sticker to make it their avatar.)
Manage Account (Allows members to change their password and email address as well as change their avatar or “badge/sticker” that represents them and also their public details)
tell a friend (Allows users to get points when they refer friends to [url removed, login to view])
• Join (SHOWS ONLY IF USER HAS NOT LOGGED IN)
Join Club Raphael (This page allows users to become a member of the site. They enter things like name, email and create a screen name and password. The emails are saved to allow newsletters to be sent to emails.)
About the Club (this page gives information about the club)
NOTE ABOUT LOGIN FEATURE: Users must log in to view the content of the webpages. If the user goes to any other webpage other then the about the club or Join Club Raphael page they will be told that they have to be a member to access that page and will be asked to register. One a user is registered and logged in their screename and current points are displayed where the login panel was.
Under the Raphael section will be:
Raphael's photo Gallery
Raphael's video Library
Raphael's media articles
Under the games section it will show the different games and the top players with the most points. These points are the same as the points/tokens system through out the site. It will only list the players avatar, screen name, age and state. Members can click on a users avatar or screen name to view the badges/stickers they have earned and to view their public profile/information. See this page for reference: [url removed, login to view]
Under the create section members have the following options.
Submit Fan art (Members are able to upload a picture to submit to site)
Submit Story (on this page there is a large box where you are able to copy, paste and enter text. You must also enter a topic from the drop down list and the title of the article/story. The member has the option to save this to their locker, print it, or submit it. See this page for reference: [url removed, login to view]
(See this page for reference [url removed, login to view] )
This is the news feature of the site. We do not know what type of content manager to use. We are thinking of using wordpress because we want something that can be easily updatable with different categories and able to archive past articles. Any suggestions are appreciated.
The contest menu will allow users to cash in their tokens/points to enter different contests to win prizes. One the user has entered a contest they can see what contests they have entered by going to the points/tokens menu under the mystuff section.
(See this page for reference [url removed, login to view] )
This menu will allow users to buy virtual items as well as real ones. We need to come up with a way similar to [url removed, login to view] where one the user purchases this virtual item it gets added to their inventory where their stickers/badges are kept. Like the stickers/badges they can make these virtual items their avatar as well by clicking on them.
8. Pop List
This page displays a list of the users with the highest points/tokens.
It displays from the highest to the lowest 25 players. It shows the current amount of points/tokens, the users avatar and screename and where they are from. A user visiting the page can click on a avatar or screename to view the users inventory. (See this page for reference [url removed, login to view] )
This page just contains things like downloads for the user that are free like wallpapers and icons etc.
WHAT ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILTIES FOR THIS JOB:
Your responsible in making sure that all desired features are possible and done in the most logical way. We are open to your suggestions on how you think things should work.
You are responsible for:
• Member registration and login in functions
• Point system and inventory functions
• Making sure all codes/scripts are polished. Cleaned and easy to edit.
• Making sure users are able to register, login, earn points, spend points and make sure their information is stored safely so when they log back into the site their inventory & points and everything else are just the way they left it.
We should have some sort of control panel where we are able to view all the registered users and send them out newsletters or ban members if needed etc.
• Communicate with the designers and be committed to listening and taking an interest in the site making sure we execute it the best way possible.
WHAT YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR:
• Graphic designing
• Page layout such as the structure and coding. You are not responsible in putting the page together, you just have to go in and add the scripting functions etc.
This document was intended to give you an idea of how we want the site to work.
The system we are going for is fairly simple. We are not looking to create a type of social network like myspace or facebook so please understand that and realize we are just making a website with some cool user functions. You will be working closely with the designers so communication is the key. Again any ideas, suggestions are greatly encouraged.
The web hosting service is by YAHOO. Yahoo allows some of the best features you can use PHP and MySQL to develop a data-driven site, build advanced applications with Perl, and use any of the advanced add-ons (which are based on these scripting tools). Basically Yahoo allows you to do anything.
Additional Info (Added 5/25/2008 at 16:40 EST)...
AND JUST TO BE CLEAR A LOT OF THE SITE IS DONE AND JUST NEEDS THE SCRIPT OR CODING FUNCTIONS.. See [url removed, login to view] for an example of the look of the site.
SITES LIKE [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] SHOULD ALL BE CHECKED OUT TO GET AN IDEA.
I know it sounds like a huge project but it really is not.
All it needs is simple registrations and login using mysql.
This script [url removed, login to view] the vpet engine has some cool stuff BUT WE ARE IN NO WAY LOOKING TO MAKE A SOCIAL NETWORK OR SOMETHING AS COMPLICATED AS NEOPETS.
