This is a big project but we are breaking it down in to small stages. We may use the same developer all the way though the project if we get the right developer.
For now though, and for this part of the project, we only need a site designing that will run in firefox, opera, IE etc. It will be a one page site with a registration page using php and mysql.
The homepage of the site will have a brief description about the game and some development news. There will also be a login section near the top of the page. The registration page will allow people to sign up and allow them to be on the list for when we need beta testers. The registration system will also need to send an activation email.
Below is what would be required on the registration form.
Username: This is what they will use to log in. Must be checked to ensure it is unique Password: Password to log in to account. Will need to be entered twice to ensure no misspelling Email address: So we can send a validation link to ensure the email address is correct and they own it. Must be double checked to ensure their isn’t any duplicate email addresses on the database and to ensure somebody else isn’t trying to multi-account. CAPTCHA: This will ensure only humans are registering I agree to abide by the terms and conditions: Tick box
I think this should gibe you a good idea of what is required. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need any further information.
