You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
You are bidding on a large project, that will be executed on phases; your study and analysis must be based on a big picture vision while giving proper attention to details.
This is a portal, for people from Lebanese origins, whereas a long list of free services is provided, for networking and entertainment as well as day to day life requirements. this portal will be well integrated with most of global social networks, it must be multilingual (at least 7 prime languages), languages and programs relate to parameters set in separate files or systems.
As you may find in the attached files, the whole portal basic idea works as follows (from end user perspective)
The portal visitor will need to register first to be able to view the contents (similar to FB visitors concept)
the subscribed user will access by default his geographical location (the country of residence as per registration info)
the user can at any moment jump to another country
at any time, some of the portal modules are same on global basis, meaning they are not specific by country.
Covered countries are 22 and other countries are 15 however, countries are set and created as per the portal admin module, whereas after finalizing a master portal functions and modules, it should be easy to recreate the same upon adding countries, and the parameters will determine, the country name, country info, languages, ...
In summary, the user would enjoy the following modules/functions for own country of residence or for another country:
Hall of Fame
free local pages i.e. http://usa.cedarwings.com/abc or http://www.cedarwings.com/usa/abc
global family tree system
Petition for the right to vote
Petition to claim the Lebanese Nationality
who is yellow pages
It is essential to provide proof of data privacy and integrity of registered users.
please tell in advance whether the applications will be windows or linux basis and all details
elaborate on server mirroring and data structure and servers requirements
the revenue of this portal comes from banner ads and ecommerce, while I do understand the complexity of putting all those functions together, it is mandatory that one access will grant the user all those free services.
mailing system to users by criteria is evident, efficient admin panel is required, statistics are a must.
while the whole could take some time, the first step would be enough to include the voting, petition and claim modules, and the rest will follow one by one.
time is limited, but am so much demanding on high quality, efficiency, simplicity in design and straight to the point approach.
last phase of the project will include developing app or apps to integrate with the portal some services.
