Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in ages, but I've been busy with school. This will be my last year of university... thank god. I hate assignments, I hate early morning classes, and I hate not getting paid! Anyway, on top of keeping up with my boring school work I have managed to work on a few online projects.
I have been working on CrowdedCollege.com for a while now and it's finally ready for the public. It's still a work in progress but I figure I'll deal with the issues when they arise. Once again I am not a formally trained web designer/programmer. I'm just very inquisitive and there's lots of info out there on the web!
CrowdedCollege.com was created to fulfill the need for user generated information that's short, succinct, and simple. It asks the question, "What did you learn today?" Abstracts are written by the community and they must be less than 100 words. Users are ranked based on the popularity of their abstract and additional points are gained through site activity, i.e. making comments, adding friends, etc. Each month, the most popular user will be given a scholarship which is a portion of the site's advertising revenue. The more money the site generates, i.e. through advertising, alumni donations, etc., the more scholarships available! So check it out... let me know what you think.
