Project Description

I’m seeking a talented team of developers or an individual who can create the site and make sure it is scalable and the code/database is efficiently designed. You must have experience with CSS, XHTML and advance mysql databases. The site will be themed to a certain audience (winning bidder will be told of audience). All pages of the site should be consistent in style (including phpBB) throughout. The site should be spam proof by using techniques to stop spammers signing up and stop programs (spiders) storing email addresses of users.

Creation of Myspace type user profile system. Profiles need to allow blog entries, commenting other users profiles, managing their own online photo albums. User must have a usable "editing" section in their profile as well as a viewable html page once they apply any changes to their profile.

A management interface must also be provided for web site administrators or power users. Please see deliverables for a full list of what is needed.
Thanks for looking.

7)Index (home) page:

I would like the index page to be show profiles in a similar way to <[url removed, login to view]>where the user doesn’t have to be logged in to view the profiles. Say display 5 profiles with a link to view more. The picture will need to be a scaled down thumbnail. The home page will also display some photos and also some wording. These will be random profiles. This will be for both logged in and non logged in users. The user can log in or if already logged in via sessions it will show the various features. More on this will follow to the winning bidder.

* Instant messaging facility (only if user is online)

* Commenting from other users can be deleted.
* Ability to add profile picture and additional photos 10 max. The photos will need to be scaled to the relevant proportions ie 72dpi and certain widths. One for thumbnail and one for large. This can be done with php code when uploading the photos. I can point out examples of code on the net for this task.
* Bulletin board ??" ability to send a bulletin to all members on their friends list and ability to read and delete bulletins. See myspace for an example of a bulletin board.
* Message control should use database and features from the phpbb forum for when a message is sent. This should integrate with the phpbb messaging forum as to only have one messaging method.
