Abstract

In this paper, the design of an asynchronized messaging system where a user may proactively seek for answers or advice by depositing a question on the messaging system is presented. The messaging system will automatically disseminate the question which is related to a specific location, to a group of users who are either within the proximity currently or have just recently been there. The users are supposed to help each other; karma or some sort of point/score system can be added to distinguish the most helpful users in the community. A name is suggested for this system called “Lemmings” which stands for Location-based Mutual and Mobile Information Navigation System; it is based on a classical video game where a group of creatures have to work and win through the puzzle game together. The design presented is modular and it comprised of the logics, the data flows, and the database schema.
