The site will be a social networking platform based on the premise of users creating scavenger hunts for other users to complete. The users who create the hunts will then grade the submissions of other users as correct or incorrect. In return the users who are completing the hunts get points for filling out hunts correctly which will be used in calculating sitewide leaderboard and entries into sitewide raffles.
The site I am looking to have built would be a social networking site based on online scavenger hunts.? Users would sign up for the site and be about to create scavenger hunts for pictures where users would either have to take a picture of themselves at a location and upload it or by saving an image from the internet and uploading it.
Upon signing up users will be allowed to fill in various information about themselves much like the information you see on Myspace of Facebook.? They would then be able to send private messages to other users and create scavenger hunts for other users.? There will also be a “friend?? option where you become friends with people you know.? These will likely be cataloged by high school and/or college.
When creating scavenger hunts the users will have the option to type in whatever they want on each option.? They will also have the option to click off a box that users creating the hunt have to be in the picture.? The user who created the scavenger hunt will then be able to check the people that have started it as well as “grading?? the scavenger hunt.? The creator of the hunt will be the one which gives credit for correct pictures.? Points will be assigned for people who finish scavenger hunts and will be tallied on a site wide leaderboard, eventually being broken down by state, and school.? The final option for scavenger hunts would be to make them private to just your “friends,?? private to specific friends, or public.? Public ones may be featured on the main page.
When users login to complete scavenger hunts they will be greeted with the option of looking at hunts made by your friends or looking at public ones.? When you select a hunt ideally I would like people to upload pictures into their account and then be able to drag and drop some kind of mechanism from the scavenger hunt list over a picture to lock it into that selection on the list.? Then there would be a save button where the submission of the completed or partially completed list to the creator for grading.? You will get points for every correct submission which will be added to your account.?
The main page would be made with two thin columns on the edges which would have leaderboards, new random hunts as well as other news with the main column (possibly 65% of the screen or more) would have blogs from the admins, articles and featured/sponsored hunts.?
