I recommend that everyone who has wants to post a question to the forums reads this article by Eric Raymond entitled 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way'. It deals with how you should frame your technical questions so that we can help you.
Perhaps you could share your intial thoughts on some of your design ideas or share with us a summary of the research/articles you have already undertaken.
IMHO this helps everyone because
a) It gets you thinking about designs and helps you learn
b) It might provide some new ideas for us and potential new sources of knowledge eg articles you may have found that we were not aware of.
I'm sure people are keen to help you so please share some of your initial thoughts
