a clone of [url removed, login to view]
+ some additional programming work (integration of text/banner ads and a payment system and some minor additions to the original features of meetup)
+ a professional and eyecatching design.
The system must be easy to localize to other languages. Please outline how you will address scalability and architecture issues.
Possible use of Drupal however you can make a case for another system.
You should be able to prove good reputation an a history of quality work!
The design of the site is really important to us. So please do not bid if your designing skills are just average or below
PLEASE do not send bids like 'We already did the project for another client. Just take a look at [url removed, login to view]' where [url removed, login to view] shows a completely different project or - even worse - just a 'server down' notice.
AND NO, we are not going to pay in advance using Western Union wire transfer!!! Please do not waste our time.
The budget mark of $300-1500 is too broad. I would welcome bids in the $300-$1000 range only. And the best price from a reputable freelancer will be accepted.
