I want an exact clone of [url removed, login to view] with additional features... Please login to [url removed, login to view] and explore all it's options before bidding.
I also wanted to add that an admin panel will have to be created to manage most (or all) functionalities and management of the site.
I want it to look more like [url removed, login to view], the graphic images are not very important to me, I want it be replaced by other modules or reports of the site like recent forum post, hottest gamer photo, poll, etc...
I also would like to add that it will contain PayPal IPN processing will be included to process membership and payments with the site.
The forum can be built from scratch or integrated with phpBB. If integrated with phpBB, very MINIMAL changes will have to be done with phpBB, a bridge of some sort would have to be created to make it work with it.
Bidders, please provide me samples of your previous work via PMB. If you don't have samples, please do not bid. I will also not consider anyone without any ratings of 10.
I will need to have a service agreement which details the exact work, incentives to the provider, schedule, payment, and own the right to the codes.
Design and price are definite factors in my selection decision.
*IMPORTANT* *PLEASE READ CAREFULLY*
We had a requirement to switch this project to a different clone. Project details will be written below. The project will somewhat be somewhat similar to this one, but maybe a bit easier because we now require a "Tourneyref.com" clone with additional features.
Normally, we would cancel this project and create a new one, but there are some bidders in this project that we are interested in.
PLEASE NOTE: That this project has a 14 pages Service Level Agreement that's been drawn up by our lawyer to protect us and the bidder from getting ripped off, which have happened to us in the past. Everything is spelled out in the agreement and I will be glad to send you a copy if you want to see it first before considering.
Here's the project details:
3.2.2 All functionalities of http://www.tourneyref.com including paypal payment processing;
3.2.3 The script should be 100% and validated XHTML & CSS compliant;
3.2.4 Created with function routines for commonly used commands;
3.2.5 Layout design will be similar to: http://www.mp3.com/ ;
3.2.6 Template driven: See phpBB script with the way their templates are setup (/phpBB2/templates/templatename) and the use of .tpl (i.e. overall_header.tpl, overall_footer.tpl, etc…) and CSS. The developer may even use the same CSS files that are distributed with phpBB, so that users/buyers of the Script can download phpBB styles and use it for their site;
Ideally, the site where the Script will be sold should be able to provide different styles for the script buyers that they can drop in a template directory (similar to phpBB) to change the look of their website instantly (configurable from the Admin Panel);
3.2.7 Coordinate and co-chair with us counterpart, the project team meetings;
3.2.8 Provide weekly update on status and progress of the project, to be posted in a forum setup by us.
3.2.9 Should be cross-browser compatible (At least with current versions of Microsoft IE, FireFox, and Netscape);
3.2.10 Full GD support;
3.2.11 Use of a language file that are editable from the ADMIN Panel. We want to make sure that all words in the script visible to the users can be translated from a language file. This includes all the Menus and generic words used across the site;
3.2.12 Password authentication should be MD5 encrypted;
3.2.13 Should be written with very tight security implementation.
3.2.14 Registration should involve email verification with option to disable this from the ADMIN panel. Signup process will be similar to http://www.vidilife.com;
3.2.15 ADMIN panel will have functionalities to manage all pages of the site (i.e. users, reports, tournaments, etc…) including (but not limited to) editing site configuration, editing site content, deleting users, banning IP, member snoop, read all mail, adjust ratings, manage photos, option to approve uploaded photos before making them available to the public, add featured member, manage ads and install new stylesheet template;
3.2.16 The script should have the capability to record user sessions, IP and associate it with the user ID/name for security tracking purposes;
3.2.17 Personal profile page (similar to http://www.tagworld.com, http://www.myspace.com & http://www.forpals.com) with full CSS support using the CSS class used by myspace.com (The idea is that users can go to a site like http://www.mygen.co.uk, copy a profile template that can be used for myspace and make it work for the script).
3.2.18 Hottest gamer photo (similar to http://www.gamebattles.com) ;
3.2.19 Friends list (similar to http://www.forpals.com) ;
3.2.20 Block users (similar to http://www.myspace.com) ;

3.2.22 User notifications for comments, friends invite, PM, tournaments, etc… that can be turned off by the users from their profile settings.
3.2.23 Ads will be displayed throughout the site and ad management should be done from the ADMIN panel. Please see ForPals.com’s Admin panel for example;
3.2.24 Latest version of phpBB can be used as the forum for the Script. Only if a bridge can be created between the Script and phpBB where users can login to the Script and have access to the forum without logging in again to phpBB.
NOTE: phpBB will not be distributed with this script. The Script should be created that it does not rely on phpBB functions in case the phpBB forum will be replaced by in-house forum. Due to licensing, phpBB can not be distributed with the Script and to minimize issues when phpBB is no longer available or has critical patches that needs to be done to it, users can do the updates themselves and does not impact the functionalities and usability of the Script;
3.2.25 Internal Private Messaging. phpBB PM can be used for this functionalities as long as it is seamlessly integrated with the script and very minor modifications done to phpBB;
3.2.26 Some sort of authentication will be built into the script to prevent hackers and others to distribute the script without our PRIOR consent. Preferred method will be ZEND optimization of the Admin Panel and Function Routines;
3.2.27 Install script will be included to automate the Script installation.
3.2.28 Codes will be well documented and commented;
This project has a follow up project which will use at least half of the functions in this one and we are willing to pay $1,200 - $1,500 on that project. We can also discuss this with you in details if you need it prior to bidding on this project.
We like to put things on the table to prevent any discrepancies in the future as we would want to work with the selected provider long term.
Thanks and PLEASE do not hesitate to ask if you have any question. We will be glad to answer any question now rather than waste yours and ours later on.
