I want to design a web-based "game" where people add words, plus other information related to the added word. Others should be able to rate each of these entries and the ratings add up to the person's total score.

This would mean having registration for users, a form to collect the info, a database to store the info, a rating system and hopefully some good graphics.

Which technology would be easy(er) to implement this? Which should I avoid?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions about "how to get started" or "what should I learn next" cannot reasonably be answered with anything other than opinion polling and therefore are off topic for the site. For more information on how to ask a better question, see the help center" – Byte56
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This is a chat question, sorry your rep is too low, go ahead and google your first couple ideas and ask about them instead. :) – MickLH Nov 29 '13 at 16:41
can't seem to find anything designed in this manner in my searches, probably because I don't know what vocabulary to use to search....was hoping a question here would help give me at least a recognized name/description I can use to search – masoftheund Nov 29 '13 at 16:52
Making an entire game is a bit too broad of a question. Try to solidify the requirements of the game and search for technology that provides for those requirements. – Byte56 Nov 29 '13 at 16:55
@masoftheund you want to learn basic SQL then, good luck! we're a bit elitist around here. Reddit has been flaming us lately for being so friendly to noobs, it hurts the money in it for all of us. – MickLH Nov 29 '13 at 16:56
@MickLH thanks man!! will look elsewhere then. :) – masoftheund Nov 29 '13 at 17:01
