We are making a new website in building. Based on the principle of the community sites, we would like to give users a successful chat but which is not very greedy at the level of the requests SQL or the performances of the server.
Our skills in programming being rather good but not enough to make a rather successful tchat, we are in search of somebody to whom to confide this task.
Two possible options:
- A chat with JQuery in Ajax, working with sockets (Server dedicated is coming)
- Or then a chat in Flash but which is not greedy in bandwidth with the system of sockets also.
Here are some requirements:
- It must be optimized : least possible requests, because the more there will be of users, the more the server will be overloaded
- It has to be easily administrable by our care and modifiable
- It will take into account our system of members on the site and will come to become established directly on the site
Concerning the chat:
- Possibility of speaking to a contact, a ( private discussion), or then about lounges by themes...
- Possibility of managing the levels of uses with moderators...
- Integration of a BBCode: management of polices, Smileys
- Display the list of the contacts of the member (available for consultation on the site) and the other present contacts in the lounge
The project is in the course of creation, consequently, the conception of the chat can be spread over two or three weeks.
