We currently have a very popular blog directory. We would like to give it a complete makeover in terms of design, layout and functionality. As it stands it has a normal directory structure with basic functions and a search. The currently site it coded entirely inhouse.
We have noticed advancement in blog searching and indexing with features that we would like to have such as "Tagging" and "Robot Crawlers" etc . . .
We've also noticed the onslaught of community/social sites and would like to incorporate relevant features into our site in order to build a community.
We do currently have options for members to upgrade thier accounts via a paypal payment, so IPN knowledge is needed for automation of thie function.
If you are accepted and do not provide the following, we will dispute payment:
1. We require alot of creativity and input on the developers behalf although we would need to approve each concept initially.
2. We would require the developer to offer up ideas on how to improve the usability or function of the site.
3. Speed of the resulting site is very important and hence we do NOT require fancy FLASH or overly complicated graphics. Smart and functional is all we require.
4. All developed code and intellectual rights cannot be reused on any other projects and must be signed over to us upon completion.
We would prefer a Team (more than 1) to work on the project rather than a single person setup.
