I want a clone of [url removed, login to view] (UD). But it won't be exactly a clone. I just want to give an immediate idea of what kind of a project this is. For most part i will need the exact functions of this website. (Please visit website first and make sure you understand what is expected from you)
It is fairly simple website to develop - users submit definitions of words and if the definition is approved it is published. One term can have more than one [url removed, login to view] of a particular term are ranked based on users' voting.
Most probably the programmer will need to use PHP and Mysql (I'd prefer PHP). It is a comparatively simple task for an experienced professional. If it seems like a lot of work for you for this price please don't bid.
This project will be done in stages. This bid is for First stage only. I will pay for each completed stage separately to make it less risky and more flexible for me and you.
==== First stage =====
In this stage most of the functions will be the same as on UD except for definition approval process. For the time being, the definition approval process should be simple , such that, at the back end I should have the interface to decline or approve the submitted definitions. Once approved the definition should be published.
==== Second stage =====
In the second stage I will need a more sophisticated definition approval process. Similar to UD there should be a system for volunteers to sign up as editors and approve/decline the definitions so that I don't have to do it all myself. (Please make sure you understand how it works at UD). In the future i might need a system to track users by their IP addresses etc.,
More info on this stage will be provided later.
After i select the programmer we will negotiate the details of this project in more detail.
I want a decent professional for a long term project, someone who knows how to work with the customers. If I am satisfied by your work for the First Stage i will hire you for further stages of this project. Moreover, i have other projects of this size and bigger along the way. If I am satisfied by your work overall i will be glad to grant you my future projects. I hope to have a fruitful mutual professional relationship.
I will make payment using Scriptlance's escrow service to protect both of us. I will deposit funds in your name and release them only when I make sure everything works on my remote server and completely fullfills my specifications.
AGAIN, SERIOUS COMMITTED PROFESSIONALS ONLY. I will pay only when i am fully satisfied with your work. If this doesn't work for you, DON'T BID.
If you need more info or clarification please contact me either through private or public message boards.
Please, don't offer partial services for this project. I don't need web design from one party, data storage from the other and logos from a third party. I will consider only the programmers who will deliver the full project according to my specifications.
Another thing, i don't have the content yet. Content will be created from scratch by users who submit definitions. It means that i don't have definitions or the images yet.
