Hi, Thanks all for your interest. I had two questions (please ignore if you already received pm from me). 1) Have you used md5 with salting before? What other security mechanisms have you used before? 2) If your resume does not have previous social networking web development experience: Can you tell me what should the database for a basic social networking site look like (what will be the main tables, important fields and relations)? Thanks for the interest, Regards, JP

Hi all, When talking to you, I found out that I have not been clear about the simplicity of my first phase requirements: I am looking for VERY BASIC framework - i)no chat, no scraps, no testimonials, no posting messages (either to friends or communities) ii) no photo uploading, no ratings of anybody, no status messages, no profile views, no poking, etc. iii) Infact for phase 1, no user profiles, friend invitations, or even privacy settings I am looking for "just the cake" - no icing - if you know what I mean. just these features: 1) Existence of users and their friend relation (as simple, bare minimal & efficient as possible). 2) Existence of communities and users joining communities. (absolutely nothing else) I have spent slightly longer time than expected, mostly because I was unable to convey that I only require the basic tables and their relations in the first phase, with simple user interface. I am interested in starting work as soon as possible, so I am reposting the "First phase" as another project for only few selected ones from the list and we can start tomorrow. Thanks & Regards, JP
