Sorry, the project needs to be sort of private, so I can only tell you what you will need to know to create this site.
I need a new website built from scratch. You will need to know the following things:
- random (Very important that you are good at this)
- register/ sign-in (register includes an email verification and/ or a captcha)
- embedding youtube videos from user page (ex. user can submit a Youtube link and it'll become embedded on the site)
- comment box similar to youtube
- vote submission (after vote submission, you cannot vote for it again)
- contest page (weekly and monthly)
- algorithms (I assume this would be needed for the random functions needed)
- Please note that graphical designs are not needed.
In a way, the site will be like a mock youtube, so keep that in mind. There will be a couple more features then Youtube has though)
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. I have never used this site before, and I hope I'm providing enough details to get the right person to do the project for me in my price range, thanks.
