The task is to create a Group Management application. A user should be able to create/join/search a group of his choice and interest.
You will also have to provide an Admin Panel, where the site administrator can manage the content and different sections of the website. The main focus is to be be able to find individual profiles or groups of similar interests.
The Admin should be able to manage categories and interests and be able to set search attributes (refer to the attachment for more). The modules and project plan might have to undergo a lot of iterations and changes.
You'll have to be prepared for that. It is a long-term project.
The basic version will have to be made online within 45-60 days and over the time you'll build this project for us. You will have to come up with a better project plan, database structure and project scope. We would prefer a team of developers who can work for us in a dedicated manner during this time.
Broadly you and your team should also be able to work on:
1. Web 2.0 UI design
2. DB Structure and Design (since it's a social network the DB will have to be optimized for user experience and search).
You are free to come-up with a plan, and the best plan wins this project. Also, send links/details for your past work. Experience in Group Management and Social Networking sites will be preferred. We will reserve all the rights on intellectual property, any development work or any work that you'll be delivering as your deliverables.

Dear Coders, We have changed the project scope and brought down the number of modules that we'll be going online with. Kindly read through the project description and the attached word doc. We'll await bids from all of you and we'd most probably select the bidder with the best execution plan for the project. Also, if you can provide examples of your previous work in Social Networking domain. Happy Bidding!
