I require creating a visual mechanism for representing members that have signed up to my site. I use a mysql backend db to collect details.
On the front page I would like to show a graphical representation all the members of the site. I can not use people but I can use objects such as a ball or something else.
I was thinking of a chart with a left and right axis with 1 ball to represent each member. As the members sign up another ball is added from left to right.
Site visitors can find their ball with a chart reference e.g. (A1,C5).
The balls will be coloured to represent each faith.
The balls can have a symbol to indicate male or female (circle with an arrow or cross).
When the mouse is moved over the ball it will show a bubble with the members “name”, son/daughter of “fathers name” and “location”.
I need a search facility so members can find each other.
Also need to implement login authentication such as [url removed, login to view]
