Hi. I am guessing on the techie requirements: Could be others instead of or in addition:
Willing to split the job between talents, since there is both front end and back end required, so let me know if you can only handle one and not the other.
a)GRAPHICS - a very clean look for the home page with rounded edges square boxes separating the categories, including inside pages look / menus, etc. banner/logo, background. Site requires original cartoon style illustrations of women (attractive, not exaggerated). In the interest of saving money and time, I could purchase a template from somewhere or show you something similar on the web to clone, but I want original graphics.
b)Everything else - Looking to create free membership site with database - full functions, including login, password, password retreival, support, uploads (text, audio, video, and/or images) which need to be approved and then given featured or regular status (depending on if they give us a reciprocal link), tell a friend (I have a script somewhere I can give you), search, etc.. Also affiliate program installation (website host provides one), social tags, comments by visitors, favorites, people who liked this also liked, etc.. Like other sites, people who visit can view for free, but to do any real functions they need to join.
Would like to allow people to choose to be notified by email when something is added in their category. I have an autoresponder acct already, so other than regular features, would like the sign ups to go to there.
If most people upload only text and comments and not audio/video, is there still a way to offer embed links (obviously URL links) that can rip off the section that was uploaded with graphics etc.. that part of the site and place it on another site?
Should be able to handle lots of visitors / users.
Would like it to work on automatic as much as possible.
I know there are sites out there that I can ask for a clone, but nothing specific - probably a combination of features from different sites.
I am not attaching a budget, but please dont bid crazy high prices - I am not sure how some social network sites here get such high bids and others such low bids. I read the descriptions and dont notice the difference between many. I am looking for someone honest, talented, quick, and NICE!!
Please show samples, if you have, of similar style features created for others.
Tx for reading.
