zubworld.com is very exciting new social networking website launching late 2009 focusing on places and not just people.
The whole site will work in a never been done before way by creating a virtual community, with virtual citizens who fill its pages with insights into who they are in real life.
They will be passionate about their place, or ‘zub’, and be keen to show the rest of the community what real life is like in their part of our planet.
Additionally in order to in-keep with the increasingly popular ‘social networking’ trend, it will enable them to develop online relationships with people they would never otherwise have met.
We’ve acknowledged and recognized the huge potential of a location-based web service focused on the place you live, love or that you simply want to know more about, which is why this site has all of the right ingredients to shake up the world of the social media community.
There is also a gaming aspect which will add excitement and, importantly, ensure longevity of the site. Users will be keen to extend the number of their followers and promote their zubs in order to increase their zubworld ‘status’.
Each time a user aquires the next stage of their status level they will unlock a new and more elaborate trophy for their trophy cabinet.
Levels will range from ‘1’ (= starting off point) and right up to ‘12’ (= the ultimate status level)
We require 12 different trophies to be designed to use on our new social networking website to be held within the users "trophy cabinet".
Ideally we would like icons that fit comfortably within a 55px x 55px square, on a white background. In most cases, the trophy will need to be taller than it is wide to look right so they don’t have to fill the whole 55px square.
We have attached an example trophy on Twitter (posted Wed 19 Aug 17:35 GMT), plus the istock links as they won't display on this site.
The trophy levels will be from
Through to 12 - "Unbelievably Fantastic!"
One trophy (mid point) will be called "superstar" so as an example it may be possible to have stars in or around the trophy.
