We need a scenario to build our ocPortal book around which wi allow us to cover most every major part of ocPortal (including e-commerce). Please cast your vote to help us decide which scenario we will use as our foundation.

I'm glad you wrote 'Gaming/clan site'.  I had no idea what a 'clan' site was when first suggested, and became a little concerned….

With Soccer/football the problem is self evident, i.e. Soccer or Football? Sure users are unlikely dismiss the book just because you choose one over the other, but the examples could cause confusion at some level and there fore be a distraction.

A gaming/clan site is probably way to narrow an audience group.

A car site is probably the best generic topic so far. Even you are aren't particularly into cars there is unlikely to be any confusions in the examples.

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Temp-

I personally prefer the car scenario. It provides a platform from which to discuss nearly every part of ocPortal including e-commerce. As you say, nearly everyone can relate to a car whether or not they are an enthusiast or just someone who considers a car as basic transportation.

While I am not going to try to sell what I was working on, I do think it can help you with defining the site you are going to use as the example. This is a real specification meaning that I am actually going to implement this site. I see this Functional Specification as something you need to start with and then translate it into the Design Specification.

Here is a link to the PDF
I see how to attach images but have no clue how one could attach HTML or a PDF.

The link does not seem to provide the PDF. You could either provide a direct link to the PDF or you might consider posting it on Scribd and providing that link.

Well, it is a link to the node where the attachment link displays the PDF. Works for me (in Firefox). Here is the direct link if that helps.

Looks good.

We could definitely use something like that as 'The Brief'.  That document isn't a Functional Spec, though, but Requirements, as it defines what he customer requires, not how the system should function.

Thanks, felipe. I'm not sure why the link does not show on the page in Mac Safari but the direct link works fine and is a good example from which to work.

It didn't work for me either in chrome, but the direct link does.

…or for me in Safari or IE8.

felipe might want to check that page again, as it seems it's working for nobody but him.

I voted for other.

Some combination of ecommerce tied to a brick-n-mortor store would have a broad appeal.
