I am looking to redesign my existing website why completely starting over with the backend. Before bidding please be ready to list previous work or sites completed that would pertinent to this job.
[url removed, login to view] is the site being redesigned.
The redesign should give a much more professional looking site for example [url removed, login to view]
This project will be phase 1: There will be at elast 3 other phases in the next 4 months each will be for another $2,000. That being said I am looking to start a long term relationship here with a Dependable, english speaking, Web Devloper to work with in the future.
You must be available via phone and email.
Getting to the specifics of the project.
1. The Site needs redesigned, as we are removing several sections from a previous design while adding other and putting more of a emphesis on marketing/ad placement.
2. The design should also be able to have many subpages made with similar or identical designs just needing section graphics.
3. This is a Media Driven site, so user accounts needed to updload content must be derived from the vbuliten forum database using the same accounts there.
4. Unique and custom stats like user uploads, group affiliations, post count, and other custom stats need to be able to be tracked and created.
5. Each user should have an Home page where you can see what content he has updated, visit their blog, add to friends. (This page should also be able to be customized by the user)
6. As this is a gaming centric site Clans or Guilds or Teams should be able to be created, setting up a page specific to their group where they can advertise their team.
[url removed, login to view] should be able to set up tournaments allowing teams to compete. Pages to track ladder rankings and tournament status would have to be created. Why creating a new tournament would automatically set up a home page for the tournament itself.
8. Users should be able to write articles and reveiws.
The backend should allow admins to be able to update the main page while also giving moderation abilities to chosen users to soft delete articles or submissions from users.
9. Users should also be able to upload wmv files, while attaching "tags" to them to help search for videos easier.
10 Keeping SEO and Adplacement in mind for maximising revenue is a must.
RSS feeds and other options as well.
Payments will be made via escrow.
