I need a website running off Invision Power Boards if possible, if not it will run of vBulletin. I need the website to be almost exactly like [url removed, login to view] but I would like it to look a bit differently, and be a bit more user friendly on the side of forums, and looking for websites, as well as how it lists website.
It needs to have a custom payment area where users can bid on websites, and big on projects, hire people, etc.. With also a mandatory reputation type system where they must leave feedback on the person that they either SOLD or BOUGHT off of.
I would like a premium listing, as well as other types of project listings that can work with the site for business, companies, organizations, or individuals.
I would also like a custom profile page, as well as more areas to describe each person.
I would also like the front page to be more organized, and easier for companies to advertise on the website but have the advertisement merge more with the sites traffic, users, etc.. So it doesn't stand out to much. I like how sitepoint has the advertisements, looks a lot nicer than most websites but it also looks a bit to busy for the front page.
I would like the front page, bidding, etc.. To be a bit more like how [url removed, login to view] has theirs but I don't want it to be as "busy" as ebay. To much information at once.. The website needs to have specific areas for hiring/projects/selling websites/selling domains/etc.. Have specific questions for each type of item/service you are selling.
This is a rough draft on what we need, please post comments/questions/feedback if needed. I don't have it as a bottom line done deal project. Trying to get about what it would run me to get it designed. But, I do know I would rather use Inivision Power Boards over vBulletin.
Not sure if I will need design, if you are a designer please quote WITH and WITHOUT designing fees.
