Project Description

The project is based on a social network for college

students in the

US. The scenario is that a student comes to the site

and selects the

school from which they attend/attended/or wish to

attend. They

register under the pretence of joining that specific


Everything they see while logged in, forums, groups,

events, ratings

are derived from students that are in their own school. The exceptions are the additional features that I state are "site-wide" which mean the information is available for all members from all schools to see.

I would like the base of the site to function somewhat like Facebook.

Where I need additional customizations is the addition of these features: (On top of what facebook has)

1. Forum - Nothing special

2. Videos - Facebook has photos, but I did not see a

video section.

3. Chatroom/Video Chat if possible

4. Professor ratings - Similar fuctionality to

5. Housing ratings - Simliar to above.

6. Classifieds section

7. Arcade games - SITEWIDE

8. Entry-Level Jobs only section - SITEWIDE

9. Texas Hold-em Poker tables with "save-able" funny

money and school logo on table. - SITEWIDE

9. THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT - The site idea and

hopeful success of the site relies on this feature. I dont know any site to point to for functionality, so I will explain as best possible.

The site is going to recruit students to take notes in their classes and publish them online for other students to download for free. Now for the functionality: The hopeful note takers need a way to apply for a note-takers position for their class. They also need to see a list of open

classes that automatically updates when students are

assigned to the class. Upon acceptance, they need a section to upload .doc files each week and locks downloads to only registered students. In order to keep the note-taker honest, the other students need to be able to rate the notes. This function needs to lock the ratings to one per registered student. The notes for each class need to be anonymous.

This section also needs paypal functionality so that

they can be paid upon successful completion of the assigned timeframe etc. weekly/monthly/semester through a back-end approval process.

All aspects must seem seamless with one login and


Also to customize your advertising engine

to allow advertisers to access their stats, ads and campaigns directly. I also need them to have the ability to choose which select schools they want their advertisements to show up in or site-wide ads.

In essence a robust advertising portal that is built in to the site.

Registration support for SocketMailPro. [url removed, login to view] and need to make sure when a visitor registers with the site, that they have the option of signing up for email at the same time. (Same username/pw) Access to the email does not have to be

integrated, just initial registration/delayed registration.
