boarders dinner

Can boarders rate their dinner, how about crowdsourcing a rating. This is a project that I am working on giving a student.

The dinners at the boarding hostel are a six week rotation. With the work that was done by and her story about school dinners I have been thinking. I have a student who needs a project this year on databases, what would happen if he posted the school dinner up, what it was and got his fellow students to rate it. What else could we find out...

I understand there was an issue about the dinners last year, but it was handled the wrong way. This would be hosted on a server within the school, the student would have to create the software/website all by term 2 to get this working.

Rating and a comment would do... though I am wondering if we record ip address just to stop multiple postings during the dinner

Simple enough? This can be a relational database? Based upon the information from the standard it looks like it will be ok. There is going to be data updated from at least one table. There is going to have to be an edit based upon the information page if he enters something wrong.

How is he going to get access/information to what dinner is? Do we just do dinner or lunch as well?

Do we lock it down to a password or access time?

How the students feeling that day, their attitude, or do we just keep it simple.

Now I need to find out how to submit a photo...

Needs to average out the rating, use a star system, what rating, 1-10 or 1-5

specifications, must work on a ipod touch
must be informative,
must be able to see previous meals, though cannot vote for them.
comments are hidden from view
only able to see the rating
