. I'm not a technical expert so may have not ticked the appropriate job type options.
. Would like a dedicated and skilled, reliable programmer from an English speaking county i.e. UK, USA, Canada and so on, save communication difficulties. I use hotmail as E-mail and msn, so you must be able to use the same to communicate. I will also require landline telephone contact at time in order to discuss issues.
. Generic bid messages from programmers asking me to view irrelevant projects will not be considered. Professional bidders with relevant historical project successes will be seriously considered.
. I want my online magazine/newspaper to look professional as well as having a user friendly approach. I will want to be provided with options as to style and structure but will input my own ideas.
. My publishing business begins low key in terms of content and will require regular updates. For this reason I'd prefer to work with somebody on an ongoing basis but will of course post future project through Scriptlance (SL) in order to protect both parties and insure that terms of project are followed. In future, following a successful launch of the online magazine/newspaper, I shall consider launching a hard copy printed publication, at which point I shall be looking for someone able to handle the hard copy layout/design. Again such project shall be through SL.
. I own the domain name of what my magazine/newspaper will be called and my host is [url removed, login to view] so you should familiarise yourself before bidding with my host website because I do not want a situation where a programmer claims not to be able to understand how to interact with this host service.
. The chosen programmer should in the first instance work with me to select an example of a similar online publication that would suit my needs. Thus would need to search for examples. I will be doing this too, in order to compare ideas.
. The programmer should be concerned with all aspects of the website, including layout, design, graphics, forms, hosting, flash header, videos, (paypal connection for subscription of hard copy) template, newsletter, key word/s searches, banner space/creation, forum, bug free, adding of pictures, and any other technical issues that arise when forming the concept.
. The style and content of such website will be publishing articles of various kinds and will be radical and unique, which include but not limited to politics, religion, social issues and so on… For this reason I do not want a programmer working on this project who has any issues with working with content that he/she may not agree with.
. As well as of course loading the site, the programmer must send all original files to me when project is complete.
. Each publication will be advertised online as a front page feature. When clicked on by internet user the article will open. Other articles will be categorised under subjects which will be to a minimum based on the structure of topics. Each piece of work will be identifiable to which hard publication it was in. i.e. even though at first there is no hard copy, because there will be in the future, the publishing of content online should relate to the relevance of the hard copy. This can be by code and or publication date/issue number.
. I want to be able to upload text content myself and create cats if possible.
. I already have a logo so there is no need to create one.
This project is open for 35 days and maybe subject to change where more instructions and or website examples added.
. Once project begins, I want it completed within 14 days, for this reason please feel free now to ask questions by posting messages.
