Modify and Redesign a Social Media Script
The script is written in PHP and AJAX. This is the skill set
needed to get this script done.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION. PLEASE PROVIDE PROOF OF BUILDING
LIVE STREAMING SITES OR SCRIPTS...NOT VIDEO WEBSITES OR WEBINAR SITES.
This site is going to be simple and attractive. The look will be understated but the functionality that we have in mind is huge! This should not be a problem for the experienced programmer at all!
This is a blog-based site. (Diagrams are available in a mock website to accompany this write-up)
This site is NOT a traditional video-based site. Read the following very carefully...
[url removed, login to view] need an experienced TEAM to do this project at a very reasonable cost. I specify TEAM because in the event, someone is "out", the project will continue on schedule. If the product is functional and satisfactory, we have many other projects to post.
[url removed, login to view] project is the complete build of a functional website with a custom flash application or use of an existing script w/ modifications. Either way, the flash app has to be custom built.
[url removed, login to view] NOT a video site! Please do not send us links to 1) any video clone templates you've made for past clients 2) any sites that don't involve live webstreaming 3) any sites that don't have any relevance to our project. You should supply us with your top 5 sites relevant to our project. There are too many professionals to respond to, so anyone not meeting the requirements will not receive a response.
[url removed, login to view] need you to provide us with a POC (proof of concept) for the project before we can award it to you. The concept should include have a live web cam feed on the page that counts down from 5 seconds. Once the countdown is over, the application will automatically record my feed for 5 seconds, then display the recorded feed on the same page ready for playback in a different player. This is not optional.
[url removed, login to view] need everything done, all-inclusive. This means once we have agreed on price, there will be no adjustments. You are professional programmers and I expect since you have worked on many projects in the past, you know what problems will arise and will be able to fix them. Once I have given you the full specs, I will be fair in allowing you to adjust for small concessions. However, after this point, we need an on-time, completed, and fully-functioning website. If you need to adjust the time line, make sure you do so IN THE BEGINNING.
[url removed, login to view] programming language you choose is up to you but it must enable FAST loading for the site and seamless FUNCTIONALITY for cross-platform use.
[url removed, login to view] me know the answers to the questions that follow...
How many programmers will you designate to my project?
Can you perform within my time line (30 days)?
Do you understand all aspects of English well?
How many American companies have you done work for?
How many times have you been over budget?
How many times have you been over the deadline?
Are you comfortable using the escrow service of [url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view] site should have all the BASICS of a major site online today: top-level security (protection of shell access), redundancy (if the site goes down, it's back up within minutes), and scalable (able to handle 1,000 to 50,000,000 users and their live feeds and videos).
[url removed, login to view] Flash Application: This is a custom built program utilizing 40 live web cams per page from users who visit the site. The web cam feeds will work together in order for the functionality of the application to work properly. Some feeds will need to be recorded and saved for immediate playback within this application and saved in the users profile. The membership features and payments gateways must all be tied into this program.
[url removed, login to view] Flash Widget: This is a custom application within the 12T site that will allow users to build a widget for use on their own site. This widget will be a stripped down version of the original. If the user keeps the 12T logo on the widget, the widget code is free to generate. If the user wishes to put their own logo on the widget, the cost is $47.
4.***DONE***Linux Server with Red 5 installed: You may access our server via Plesk control panel or Shell Access upon approval of your bid. Which ever is most comfortable. If you don't plan to use Red 5, you may uninstall it.
5.***NEEDS TO BE TIED INTO CUSTOM APP***Payment Gateway: PayPal is fine for our needs in the beginning, but we would like to get away from using this. Our proferred provider is iPowerPay.com. If you would make yourself familiar with this site and interface, it would be most helpful in the future.
6.***DONE***Membership Functionality: Users cannot participate unless they are registered (at least for free). The users ability to use certain features in the flash application is based on their level of membership. The levels are explained in the write up for the site.
7.***NEED DATABASE BUILT***Email Notification/Marketing/Database Usage: This feature will be used for email marketing (mass emailing to users with their permission similar to Amazon's “New Items” emails). This feature would also be for informational purposes regarding the site according the users' preferneces.
8.Tell-a-Friend Program: We would like for users to be able to inform friends easily via the use of a tell-a-friend program built into our site. The users can just type in their username and password from Yahoo, Gmail, or MSN and imports contacts (similar) to Myspace. What would make this one different is every time a message is sent inviting a friend, the invitor's picture would appear in the email with a talking bubbleasking them to join.
[url removed, login to view] Ads: Our ad needs are 2-fold. There will be space to incorporate ads from the admin control panel (advertising banners and boxes) onto the user pages. The home page will be set-up to feature one (1) product for a specified amount of time. The second ad displays will be inside the flash application. These ads can only be shown every ten minutes, no more. The users are our focus, not the ad displays.
[url removed, login to view] Optimized: We'd like the site to be auto-optimizing for SEO keywords that are created within the blogs. Again, I will leave programming languages up to you.
[url removed, login to view] Media Linked: Users should be able to link to their Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter accounts from our site. Whenever a user leaves a webcast, it is automatically posted to their various accounts.
12.***BUILT INTO THE SCRIPT***Mobile Compatibility: Users should be able to use our application via their mobile phones. This can be done later, but not a priority right now.
[url removed, login to view] Program: This is a program where other marketers drive traffic to our site in exchange for a share of the revenue. The program simply assigns “affiliate A” a special link from our site, so that we know where the traffic is coming from. If a user sent by “affiliate A” signs up for a paid account on our site, “affiliate A” get's paid $3.97 for that paying customer. The program keeps track of the auto-generated link of each affiliate and how many users signed up using that affiliates link.
14.***NEEDS SYNCING WITH APP***Admin/Subadmin Functionality: This is the "backroom" that controls everything. From here, the admin will be able to insert ads, insert featured products, designate subadmin level of control, and expel users who don't follow our rules.
[url removed, login to view]: The buttons should look like buttons. The images should be high definition (smooth edges). The site should be simple and sleek in design. No big overwhelming header graphics. White will be the main color of the pages with splashes of red and orange to accentuate. (SEE THE TEST SITE). The tone of the site is “Quick and Fun”.
16.***DONE***Page Setup: Pages should be truncated so that no “dead space” is between content and the bottom of the page. Most or all “ticker” pages will have blogs on them, thus, pages should auto-elongate to accommodate space for displaying comments. If possible, I would like the entire flash application to fit into one full screen without having to scroll up or down to see the entire app.
[url removed, login to view]: Our homepage will possess the most popular ticker of the day. The homepage will also include a video shout out module where users can use their webcams to tell us what they think of the site. These “shouts” must be approved by the admin or subadmin though.
