Leaderboard(s) for celebrities only in DropZap?

Hello,

In addition to the global high score leaderboards for everyone, should I also have leaderboard(s) for celebrities only?

Do you think this feature could make DropZap more popular?

Amir

I'm not sure what you are asking?
Do you mean celebrities that bought your game?
Or regular people impersonating a celebrity?

Do you mean celebrities as in Hollywood celebrities or celebrities in the community like Zincous?

Yes, I mean celebrities who bought my game.

Twitter tells you about verified celebrities. They could submit their device UUID via twitter DM.

It would be fun for celebrities to compare their scores with other celebrities.

Terrible idea in general (not just re: dropzap). Category would be infiltrated and abused to no end for all sorts of spamming purposes. Fame speaks for itself. If it can't, then it has nothing to say where it's trying to say it. If famous facebook mugs can't make it via sheer skill and practice to spots on the general leaderboard seen by most players, then either they should rely on facebook to share scores with their fans or they should find a game in which their skill will place them higher on the charts.

Ahh, I was wondering how you would be able to tell if a person was a real celebrity; that would be pretty cool if you could implement it .
