My dream is to start a fantasy sports business. I want to start with football and then later add baseball. I need software that can run the leagues and I need to a web design to host the business. Once set by the administer most leagues run themselves with little help form the administer. Need to be able to hold many leagues up to 1000 maybe. The leagues need to be customizable for instance number of teams, number of players on each time, and starting line-ups. Each league needs to have a personal message board and private message system. Each league needs to have access to all NFL players and have a live scoring display for real time games. Each league needs a draft function and it also needs to be customizable such as serpentine order or auction. The website needs to have a payment option so customers can enter leagues. The website needs a public message board. As the administer I need full access to the message board and the ability to be able to create leagues and add customers or move customers to different leagues. The leagues need a lot of other options for an example here is the address to a league I am currently a customer in <[url removed, login to view]>
This is a dream of mine and could use some consultation with this project. I am looking for someone to develop the software and the website. Once the project looks like it is going to take off it needs to be done by June 1st of 2008 so that gives us almost a full year to figure this out.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
The website needs to be accessible from any computer and operating system or web browser. I am not real familiar with this so consultation will be needed so I can make an educated decision.
