I want someone to design for me a website where users will be able to create groups that can be public or invite only, and these rooms will have chat room and message board functionality, along with the typical basic social network features (social networking is not the cornerstone of the site, this is secondary). A user could have one account to be in as many groups as he wishes to join, and he will then be able to access dated chat rooms and message boards. There are a few other details about how I'd like the chat to work, for instance, I want someone to be able to replay the chat in real-time (like if the chat originally ran from 7:00 to 7:30 on a Monday night, someone could later play it on Wednesday from 9:02 to 9:32, seeing messages in order, and properly timed apart as they appeared in real time - they can also contribute to the chats for future viewers, but designated as non-live contributions).
Design work is also required on the look and feel of the site.
More details will be available to interested/winning bidders. FYI, I aim for this project to fall on the low end of the 1500-5000 pricing spectrum.
Note: I have used GetAFreelancer once before to disastrous results. The freelancer was impossible to contact, provided crappy work, and did not complete the project in any regard, while still taking my first payment. I am trying again because I know some of you do great work. In your bids, please make sure you can deliver extremely high quality work, in the time you allot, for the price you list! I am an extremely friendly person, but due to my last experience, you can understand why I am more than a little wary of returning. Hopefully, someone can renew my faith in the great freelancers on this site!
