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.
