We would like a website based on Flash Gaming and Development. Not
just another copy-cat flash game site, we will be trying to provide social networking features that will continue to entertain our visitors. SEE [url removed, login to view] for a reference of what we are looking for. You will understand once you read all of this.
The design of the website is EXTREMELY important. Colors and layout must be perfect. I request that you don't use a white background.
Front page must display top 10 games, as well as top 10 members by experience total(account feature explained below). Please show somewhere a counter ( or provide code for ) a counter that will track BOTH # of registered users and # of site hits.
Some notable features that we require:
Navigation bar sample: Would like something like this:
Games Beta Network Audio Network Graphic Network Forums
Please provide a space for myself and my staff to post messages on the front page. Again - please see [url removed, login to view] for an example.
*Without needing to sign in, we would like our visitors to enjoy the newest and most popular flash games on the web, as well as old favorites and classics. - Each game needs to provide support for USER REVIEWS, COMMENTS, VOTING, UPDATE INFORMATION (When logged in only!!!).
*Member Benefits! Member accounts will need to provide a full-on experience system, gaining experience for posting on the forums, voting, posting comments, etc. Example: Level 1 (EXP 0-14) Level 2 (EXP 15-29), etc. This will give the user the ability to network and communicate with other members, post reviews and comments on games, vote on favorite games to make them more popular, access the forums, and gain other perks depending on the "level" of the account. Also need a voting system (vote 1-5) which can display on each game.
*Account Rank/Level Perks – Some perks include the ability to post a message on the main page, the ability to create a friend list to see who is currently online and see what game they are playing, and user profiles and blogs with links to your submitted games, audio, or artwork.
*User-Submission Portals! Login and submit 'BETA' games for feedback: user reviews and comments, testing, ideas and player suggestions for further development.
Also need this type of portal for user-submitted audio and user submitted graphics/art. Three portals in total.
*Clean design that invites members to spend extended periods of time logged in, always providing an enjoyable experience. Preferably different shades of gray and bright blue. If you have other ideas for colors, please let me know! We'd like space for a big company banner on top, a nice horizontal navigation bar under the banner. PLEASE LEAVE SPACE FOR ADVERTISEMENTS ON THE WEBSITE. Advertisements will be VERY important. Login area for accounts.
We plan to make this the ultimate website for Flash Games and Development and User Interactivity. As a reference, PLEASE see [url removed, login to view] and check the "Flash Portal" and "Audio Portal" to see what we are looking for.
Please do not copy the [url removed, login to view] layout or color scheme, but make it a beautiful pallet that people will love to look at often.
We can provide a few images - really rough sketches of what a prefered page should look like - but we'd rather leave it to the skilled designers to create a website that fits our needs.
Thanks for your times. Let me know if there are any questions. Price Negotiable! This seems like a lot, but a lot of it is very simple. It is the layout that is most important! We have chosen $250-$750, but again -- price is negotiable!
***Please note we do NOT want a website designed in Flash.
IF YOU ARE ABLE TO CREATE A WEBSITE LIKE NEWGROUNDS.COM FOR ME WITH >>ONLY<< THE FEATURES I HAVE LISTED ABOVE, YOU ARE ALMOST GUARANTEED A WIN. A Newgrounds Clone with a different template/layout and color scheme would be perfect!!
