Good-Morning from SurfWorld !
Forgive the comments and suggestions.
Just get to the point man.
What a great area I live in!
I am amazed at how interactive the web is now
with 'avatars', video, photos, IM, instant sharing
of community and the spirit of the community.
Coders, programmers, I live on the California
Coast, the Santa Cruz area known as Surf City USA.
This is the generation of my children (3-12yrs).
The static websites that I was raised on are 'dead'.
Site must be designed that look California: whales, surfers,
dolphins, beaches & cool people.
The #1 site that appeals to me is:
1. [url removed, login to view]
2. [url removed, login to view]
A clean site.
Some elements of MySpace & YouTube which
is evident with Cyworld & Hi5.
I am seeking to administrate the site with minimal
help after you, the coder programmer selected provides
maintenance for a few months for potential glitches that
might & will occur due 'your' programming .
You might be an expert(s) in phpfox community software
to customize the script to work with other scripts. hi5.com.
Hopefully you have experience in flash for 'video' script.
You have experience & expen with good feedbacks.
I need an honest company that respect their own work,
concern about the great feedback I will give and knows
how to communicate with us for the ultimate success of
what a Community site project is.
Again, very important!
Below will also be incorporated.
If the project can't get off to a good start, then it will not be done.
* Google search
* Google adsense
* Classifieds as you see with 'MySpace'
I am not seeking to capture the world like MySpace or UTube,
just create Community.
I want to be informed, to know that you have received my
emails (acknowledge). Communication is very important.
As you bid, don't rush and state that you can finish
a site like a Cyworld in a few days.
Be fair and don't try to goad me (over inflate the $$$ cost)
Note: I know nothing of Community site building, only suggestions.
Below, what I'm basically seeking:
A community site built similar to Cyworld, HI5 or MYspace.
Written in PHP and Ajax and using a MySQL database.
Here are the features I want:
- Users can build custom profiles & living space as
CyWorld, Hi5 & MySpace.
- Users can add videos on their profiles
(linked to Youtube or Google video).
- Users can add an mp3 player to their profile ( HI)
* View other users and post profile/picture comments.
* Manage their comments and also have a journal.
* Top 6 friends
* Upload 12-15 pictures to their main profile plus
they can create picture galleries where they can upload
as many pictures as they want
- Forums - I would like phpBB or Orca
- Friend Networks and Groups
- Friend Circles
- Personal Messages
- Flash Chat
- Video Page - users can't upload videos, but can post videos from YouTube or Google and the videos will play on the site. On the Video Page users can see 5 most recent videos and 5 most popular videos(based on rating and visits)
- Video Categories
- Both free and paid membership. Paying members will get extra features. Payment gateways: Paypal and if possible others, but paypal is most important
- Admin section from where I can control all aspects of the site
- Users should have a local weather forecast on their profile(visible only to them) and also personalized Horoscope(based on their birthdate). I can provide you with codes from where to get these
- Site should be multi-language(yoiu don't need to write it in several languages but it would be nice if yo ucould use language files)
The design should be nice and clean and if possible skinnable.
The project involves both the coding and design of the site.
I will explain the features in depth to the selected provider.
You can use an existing script like phpFOX or anything else
if you know you can deliver what I asked for with that script or you can use your own script or even start from scratch.
If any questions please message me.
Finally, [url removed, login to view] is the site of my choice.
I willing to listen to your PMB (PrivateMessageBoard).
The best of luck with your bid,
