I am the webmaster of a private community portal. I programmed it by myself, but I'm not a programmer, so the code has grown rather chaotic.
The complete portal has to be re-coded with state of the art techniques.
Templates/Skins (css/html) to easily change the layout.
Modularisation to easily implement new components.
Access/Security-Management by roles.
Localization of the system.
System should be scaleble (webfarm, mysql master-slave replication)
Core Components are:
Editable User Profiles (with Pictures)
Private Messages (webmail integration planned)
Cam-Page (vie ftp-upload)
Party-Modul to organize events (calendar, guestlist, mailinglist ... )
Location-Guide (with reports/ratings by users)
Picture-Gallery (with comments/ratings by users)
Event-Calendar (which integrates the existing party-module and the planned location-guide)
My community runs on 2 Dual-Xeon Servers with Windows 2000 Server. First Server runs the Database (MySQL 4)
Second Server runs the Website (IIS/ASP)
I have about 4500 members and a maximum of 100-150 online-users at the same time.
As I said before, ist is a private community portal and it's free for all members ... everyone can organize private events, but for commercial events the organizor has to pay 1$ per member (and a free drink for the member), that shows up on that event ... :) it's just to finance our community ... not to make money ;)
I uploaded some thoughts :)
