How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Naming Force website uses a military theme in orange and black with hints of maroon. The orange header includes tinted images of smiling professionals while four grey navigational tabs help the user find each area on the site. The stylish logo features a rank symbol making up the “m.” Users can see current naming assignments, which include a snippet of the description, ward amount and how many names have been submitted so far. Clicking on an assignment will show the user the full description, applicable keywords, name type, time left and a list of submitted names. The user can also click a small blue Facebook button to post the item on their profile.

How does the registration process work?

The bottom of the form asks the use for account details, including name, email address and a password. Users who would like to supply names can click the grey “Join the Force” tab in the upper, right hand corner of the website. The user is asked to provide a first and last name, username, email address and password.
