Cost to Build Website: Points Website For Reading News Articles
How much would this cost?
I'm thinking mysql to handle the database portion.
Choose how long a news article to be read. Ex.: Longer Articles = Window must be open.
Say the requirement is to read the article for 3 minutes, if the window is closed, a redirect
occurs and no points is given.
30 seconds/read = 1 point
Article opens up in a new tab
Article links pulled from database
If tab with article is closed stop timer
Only the desired amount of time spent reading is credited. Ex.: A article awards 6 points for reading it for 3 minutes, but will not give credit before 3 minutes or extra after 3 minutes is reached.
Choose how often each article can be viewed for points, like once a day per IP.
Setting is article is disabled or not
