Since we sell horse riding equipment online, we want a new section to our website where people come and view all the new events (such as their local horse races) and also they need to have the ability to post events which are going on. We figure we can generate traffic on our website if people are coming to view their local events and will hopefully buy some stuff for those events. We need a website application will allow users to create events, and then allow them to view the list of events. This will include a username system, image uploading, searching events, viewing events, and managing profile and private messages. This system will be similar not exact to [url removed, login to view], but we will only be focusing on Equestrian Events (horse back riding equipment)
OUR EXPECTED SOLUTION:
We need an Equestrian (Horse-Back Riding) Events List Website where users can post and view events(similar to [url removed, login to view]). We need this done in PHP and MySQL. The program will be integrated into our existing website. The interface must be very user-friendly, and easy to administrate. Remember, people with the hobby of horse-back riding will be using this!
I've written out a spec of exactly what I need in this Word Document file attached. This is the most accurate requirements outlined. Please view it BEFORE bidding.
The rest of what is written below is a summary of the spec and should not be considered a replacement of the spec!
This project will be divided into stages. The chosen programmer will receive a percentage of the payment after each stage is complete.
Stage 1 – Design: Screen-Shots of the design layout of every page will be sent to the author of this project for approval. Once the design is approved, the chosen programmer will receive 30% of the payment.
Stage 2 – Programming: At the end of this stage, the web application should be fully functional on the test server provided. The chosen programmer will receive 40% of the payment at this time.
Stage 3 – Live Testing: At the end of this stage, the web application should be fully integrated into the live server and fully operational. The chosen programmer will receive 30% of the payment at this time.
* OUR PAYMENT POLICY *
Unfortunately, I've been badly burned two times when I've given big project to freelancers. They start the project OK, but for some reason can never complete it. Then they keep the entire money for the project. This has become VERY frustrating. I neither have a product nor my money. As a result, I have divided the project into stages (see above). You will only get your money after you complete a stage. I will not deposit any money into escrow. Thus there is no compensation for attempted work. We are a big company, if you don't like our payment terms, please don't bid.
I will let you tell me how long it will take you to finish the project. Then for each day you are late I will subtract $5. If you are more than 15 days late for any stage, I reserve the right to terminate you from the project and give it to someone else. For each day you complete the project early, I will add a minimum of $5. But keep in mind, I will probably not select you as a winning bidder if you say it will take you 3 months to complete stage 1 project. The point is: I need this project done fast and most importantly, ON TIME.
How to become a winning bidder:
1) Comment about OR ask a question about the specs
2) Have a portfolio of previous work
3) Submit total bid as well as bids for each stage
4) Demonstrate knowledge of PHP and MySQL
