IM Client with some Scraping (PHP, needs a few tweaks)

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$30 - $250

Project Description:
This is a project that is about 70% completed and I need someone to finish it. A few bugs need to be fixed and a few features are missing.

Solid knowledge of PHP would be required, or an alternate platform if you judge it could handle the task better. If you feel you'd rather start from scratch to get the job done, that's fine too.

I would like to create an instant-messaging platform for a third party website which doesn't have one. This means I need someone who is mildly comfortable with obtaining information from a site by scraping.

The final project should be a simple web-based messaging/instant messaging platform which would need to:

-Handle the creation and maintenance of user accounts
-Allow users to add contacts to their list
-Allow messaging and instant messaging between users
-Allow for premium accounts to use certain features (offline messaging, fonts/colors, profile pic)

There are a few other specifications which I can share with interested bidders. This can potentially become an ongoing project, so I'd love to find someone who can work with me again in the future to implement updates.

Thank you for your interest!
