I am an owner of a free bar poker league in our state. I need a site where players and bars can log on and keep track of points and players. I will describe the details of each account below. We need a log in for players to log into an account where they can see their points they have accumulated for playing, register for special tournaments and spend their points in a store where admins add the store items. The bar account would be accesible by our clients that we would give for them to log in and disburse points weekly.
I want to help everyone interested in this project to understand what we do. We currently have 95 clients throuought the state and each of those clients host free poker tournaments on a weekly basis. Each week 10 players earn points for finishing in the top 10 places. Each week a member from each bar will log in to the site to disburse points to those players who are registered in the database and have a player id and username. There must be some way to track the points that were given out.
Here is what we need in detail:
For the player area we would like:
A sign up area where players can go to this page to sign up for a player account to play in our weekly events at their favorite bar. Fields for this must include name, address, city, state, zip, phone, email, username, and a password field.
A log in area for players that are already signed up.
A link where players can register for upcoming tournaments.
A link for players to search and see items in the store.
For the bar area we would like:
A log in area.
A link for bars to distribute points to players. This area must be searchable for bars to search for the player username or player id number.
A link to report an error if they have a problem.
A link to the signup page where bars can add players that haven't signed up via the web yet.
For the admin section we would need:
A log in area.
A way to add new bars with a username, password, business name, city, state, and zip.
A way to add points to those bars.
A way to add "special tournaments" for players to register in from their player account. Special tournaments happen 4 to 6 times a year where we allow players to "buy in" with the points they have accumulated. We would need a way to add those tournaments and it would be listed in the player section under upcoming tournamnets and they would be able to register if they have enough points. These pages will need to be made dynamically with 6 to 8 tourneys listed on each page.
A way to add players and change those player accounts when necessary. This also must be searchable by name and id number so we can search for players since we will have around 5,000 players when it's all said and done.
A way to add and remove items from a store. The pages for the store would have 8 products per page and create pages dynamically. This would not have to be searchable as we will only have 50 or so products. Players are only able to purchase these items with points so there is no need for SSL or any other certificates. When adding these items there would need to be a place for us to put an item id, description, price (in points), image url with the image always being justified to the left. If it is possible to create some sort of shopping cart where they can add multiple items into their cart and checkout when they have all of the items they want. We will also need a way to create different categories to help players find products they are looking for.
The winning bidder must also have some sort of instant messaging software like Gtalk or Yahoo Messenger and be able to chat with me throuought the project. I will not work with anyone I can not get a hold of daily. I don't expect to be able to contact you all of the time but I must be able to chat daily. I also must be able to see the process of the project whether it be published on your server or if you work on it on my server I must be able to see the process and put in my input. So to elaborate this is what the winning bidder must do:
Be available daily to chat.
Have the site published on a server for us to view.
I know this is a lot of details but overall I think this is a pretty simple project. I have already have a site listed at www.xpconline.com. This site would be ideal except we don't need the styling that we currently have. We decided to go with Joomla as it provides a more professional look. We also have that source code if you would like to just modify it and add a few things for us it doesn't matter. I will also state my details. I do not pay over the bid price. I also do not pay until the project is done. I have also added a couple of images what we would like the site to look like.
If you have any other questions please let me know.
