I have an idea for a website that I would like turned into a reality.
My idea is similar to domain name search (think GoDaddy, [login to view URL] etc) but user is not looking to register domain names, just regular words, numbers etc. E.g. They search for the word ‘fossil’....word comes back as available, they can then sign up and ‘register’ that word. The word ‘fossil’ is now no longer available. That user has essentially claimed it. The user then has to upload an image which they want to associate with that word...a profile pic essentially. So then, if another user comes along, uses the website and searches for the word ‘fossil’, they will see something like ‘Sorry, David P. has fossil.’...along with the image that David H. uploaded to be associated with that word. Note: user can register ONE word, number, character only.
Btw, once registered, email address confirmed etc, the user will have access to simple user log in area where they can delete their account, make simple changes if required.
So yep, the database will start empty...well, maybe just me starting it off. As words, numbers, characters get registered they build the database and are unavailable to be registered by others. Note: users cannot register phrases or multiple words. Basically they can only register what’s in the dictionary.
Hope I’m being clear so far.
A bit more to it than that of course, back end...ability to message/delete users, people who try and register more than one word, have mods help me out checking no duplication...people trying to register multiple words etc...I’ll go more into detail if you are interested in the job.
