A “league” is the most important concept of rocktheshow. It specifies the art (broadly categorised). The following is the list of the leagues we added for the first version:
- Content Writing
- Film Making
People can choose their leagues while registering and can modify that list at any point of time. It acts as a filter and separates people into divisions. People can form communities inside leagues.
Community is a place where people can share their thoughts by posting, involving in group discussions etc. They can also help other each other and this invokes mutual learning.
For a fresh community to get enlisted in its respective league, it needs approval from at-least 100 people (so that the community stays active). Anyone who is present in his/her respective league can create a community. There won’t be any admin to a community and anyone can manage it. To close a community, there will be voting system where more than half of the people should approve of it.
Every user of rocktheshow will have a profile. It is a place where people can display their details. They can also showcase their talent to others (if he/she is a photographer they can display their photographs). They can also maintain their own personalized blog where they can post stuff related to their interests and their journey.
It is a part of community where people can develop their skill by learning. It is constantly updated and maintained by experts (as already mentioned above). It is present in the form of a course and everyone will be able to access it from their respective leagues.
