[url removed, login to view] Clone - Phase 1
The goal is to clone the [url removed, login to view] website. This first phase will NOT include the "Point Shop" functionality that they currently have. Once the site gains a lot of momentum & traffic (3-4 months out), I guarantee that the developer(s) of phase 1 of this clone will be rewarded with the work for Phase 2 which will include functionality similar "Point Shop".
Below I've tried to document the existing functionality but you MUST register with [url removed, login to view] to get a feel for the application. I don't want ANY scope creep so please ask any questions you may have prior to building the site out.
- LAMP via [url removed, login to view] (you'll have full admin access)
Users add a keyword word or phrase (maximum 20 characters)
They can choose three keywords that links to their keyword/phrase
The word or phrase is linked to the URL they supply
When they add a link on their website and their viewers click
"bite me spider!" they get 3 points
When they reach certain points they "level up"
and their "bite me spider" phrase becomes slightly more prominent (using css)
increasing chances that the viewers of [url removed, login to view] will click on their phrase.
If their site hasn't had a "bite me spider" hit in 24 hours they lose a point
and could drop a level.
IP numbers will need to be recorded.
The same IP cannot vote/click on same link in same 24 hour period
and have it recorded
The front page will display the 200 bite spider words/phrases with most points
The phrases will be listed randomly each time the page is refreshed
The font colours for each keyword/phrase will be random from a selection of
eight colours chosen by admin
Statistics will play an important part:-
Total keywords/phrases (link to show them - next previous page etc)
User will see how many clicks his bite spider phrase has had through to his website
How many bite spider words/phrases added in last 24 hours, week, month, year (links to show them)

for example a rival bite spider phrase is higher than him - he can use 200 of his points to
decrease his rivals standing. This will cost him 100 points but his rival will decrease by 200
points - user can choose amount of points to use
another example -
Are you sure you want to bite spider your rival? Decreasing this rival by 100 points will cost you 50 points
Yes - Submit - system deducts points from rival and deducts points from user
Email generated to rival informing him he has been "Blabbered"
User can purchase "safe" points - link to Paypal - full secure automation required
Admin sets price for each amount of points purchased.
Safe points are not eligible to be "Blabbered" by a rival
