Project Description

Looking for a well experienced company to design from ground up a social network website. Only those who can meet serious deadline and agree to our terms shall engage.

The final Website design should have all the features, capabilities and functions that are currently offered by Facebook, in addition to the generalized list of the functions, modifications and modules below to be included. The Website look and feel should be unique and not in violation of any copyrights.

The code should be modular and well-organized and should not contain any encrypted files. You must ensure that all work together cohesively. Layout flowchart of scripts interconnection and well documentations. The code must be understood by our programmer and by your colleagues in case of future enhancement of [url removed, login to view] want it done professionally with a stable code; professional look and feel; solid security; easily expandable and scalable and must be able to expand to around +10 million members.

Let us know how long it takes to complete it perfectly, No saving time on bad and unintelligible code. I assume the work will be completed within a 45 - 60 days window. You must stay within the agreed time schedule. If you are beyond the deadline date, I reserve the right to void and null the agreement and get escrow funds back.

Prototype: The developer will create a non-working mockup of all pages/screens in the final software. Creating a prototype makes it easier for the us to visualize the final software, and reduces misunderstandings.
Document: The analyst will create a document describing everything the final software will do (other than what is documented in the prototype.)

All software must be self contained and no outside services should be required. This project must not rely on any services that require monthly (or other) fees for live video chat or other services. No outside services. No other software to buy.
I require complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done (so that I may modify it in the future). A backup copy of all deliverables is to be sent electronically by way of upload to the final server used for installation AND zip file should be sent via email.

All rights to this software belong exclusively to me and you will provide 100% of the source code upon completion. You will not be able to sell or share to second or third parties or licensed out any part of any of this project code or design with anyone else. All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased.

Installation guideline: Any website server-side deliverables must be installed by the developer company, the company will move the software from the place it was created ( QC environment) to the (production environment) in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
Testing: The installer then tests the software to make sure that the installation was done properly and completely production environment.

We expect developers to be available during the programming by Voice IP phone, chat and email. You should be able to communicate well in English.

We would also be interested in mid to long-term support and further development with your company.

I will pay you by escrow after completion, upload and debug. Escrow will be released to you when the full website is complete, debugged, and uploaded to my server to my satisfaction and assured stability for 90 days.
