Ref: My yesterday's note re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Some more points:
May be (loud thinking) we ought to have a provision where the SENDER can enter his/ her own birthdates in "My Detail" block as follows.
The moment he clicks submit, the names of celebrities (for his own birthdates) will pop - up in a window.
This is the "proof" that the software works! Only if the sender gets convicted that software works, would he feel like entering names of his friends.
Provision for ADD additional celebrity details we would need to provide.
This is Two (2) parts,
· A "PRIVATE" list "Box"
This is where "sender" or the "Recipient" could add names/ data, which belong to friends/ relatives/ sweethearts etc., which they do NOT wish to share with general public. They want these to be their own personal/ private "SECRET”! This is a very common "Cliques / Sub - groups" amongst collegiaus.
Hence, we need to assure the sender (and / or recipient) that any names/ details added into this PRIVATE BOX will NOT be shared with anyone else and that we will NOT add these names to COMMON/ PUBLIC database.
· A "COMMON/ PUBLIC" List Box
This is a box in which, sender/ Recipient could add data/ names sports champs/ Model etc), which entire world knows. WWJ would be free to add these into our COMMON/ PUBLIC database (Birth - date wise), so that this database keeps growing thru contributions of all people using this feature. Everybody benefits by everybody's contributions.
Why would / should any sender/ Recipient take the trouble to "Contribute" new names/ data to the "PUBLIC" box? The "Free - riders" would what to enjoy the benefit (of this service) without having to contribute anything!
And we can neither have any RELE which says
"You can use this service - only if you add 5 new names/ data to the PUBLIC box".
To bypass such a rule, people may enter "JUNK" data! - And we have no one to monitor / validate any data entered by anyone in the PUBLIC box.
So obviously, such a negative incentive will not work.
But what might work is a positive incentive. We may be able to motivate people (to add new data to PUBLIC box), if we give them credit for their contribution.
Incidentally, as far as PUBLIC box is concerned, we cannot have a field for "E - mail ID!
(Shown in my Yesterday's note).
It would be virtually impossible for anyone to get hold of "private" email IDs of
. Shah Rukh Khan
. Ratan Tata
. Sachin Tendulkar etc.!
And, in any case, they are unlikely to be looking for jobs, so we have no use for their email ID!
. "FREE" Service
Somewhere, we must mention that this (Happy Birthday) Service is FREE.
