As pretty much all of you guys know we have a section for game collections on the site. The plan is to make it so that members will be able to make a list of the games and things that they have in their collections and host them on the site here. It allows an easy and effective way to track and display your video game collection so that other can see it.
Im the guy who designed and made the website, with the exception to the forums, and Im not the best at database work. With having 3 jobs going at once plus freelance and other stuff its just too much on the go for me to put into making this section of the site. So this is where you guys come in.
We need someone who is very proficient at database work and websites so that they can create something that functions smoothly, very user friendly and is easy to use. Here is what we are looking for it to do.
[*]Allow users to add video games to a list that is their own on their own page.
[*]Allow is so that when a user manually enters a game into their collection that game becomes a part of a larger list, designated per system so that other members, instead of having to write in manually what games they have, will be able to select the game from other user generated content and add it to their list.
[*]Allow users to easily remove and add notes to each game that they have. So that they can add in if its a collectors edition or that its some rare version or something of that nature.
[*]Allow a few versions of displaying the listing of games. Either with box art or just a general list.
[*]Allow users to compare their list of games with other people who have collections. Showing a section of the same games, not the same games and other things of that nature.
[*]List nicely seperated into different consoles and platforms.
[*]Give the viewer the option of chosing a few different formats of viewing the lists. For example alphabetically, by genre, by developer, by system etc.
These are just some general ideas so that it can be a very unique setup that noplace else has. Something that makes TGH stand out from the rest of the sites out there with the ability to interact with other lists and such.
We are looking for volunteers who are able to do this kind of work. Nobody is getting paid on the staff of this site, so if you are expecting anything like that, please do not contact us. We are doing it because we like to do it and we like to make all the Sidekicks and Henchmen out there happy. When you guys are happy it makes us happy and makes us want to do more for you guys. We want someone in the same frame of mind.
So if you can and want to help out shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
with the title "TheGameHeroes.com Collections Database" and let me know what you can do, what other stuff youve done and things of that nature.
Thanks everyone for checking out this thread and hopefully we can get this section of the site up and running for everyone!
