Development of social network website in video game industry

Due to shoddy first time development on my current website I need to rebuild the entire website from scratch. The website entails a social networking website, similar to Facebook, with added features and functionality not currently seen on other websites based on the video game industry. It is a relatively large website I am looking to build and need someone with time and dedication and preferably a gamer himself. Being a gamer is not a per-requesite, but it would be advantageous to me.

I can supply whoever gives me the best bid with detailed descriptions of changes to current functionality of the website and also detailed and visual guidance to other functionality that needs to be implemented. I have a lot of reference sites I can direct you to, to give you a very clear picture of what I need to get done.

Please note that nothing of the current websites coding can be used and the person will have to start building the database from scratch and redo all the coding. I already have a theme selected for the site and a logo.

The website will need the following developed, but is not limited to:

Individual Profiles with notifications and info adding capabilities.

Buying and selling features on every profile and business pages.

A market where buyers and sellers can view different products.

Business Pages with similar features to a FaceBook page but with added features.

A link sharing page where people can post links, videos and photos.

Creation of a virtual currency that will be used throughout the website.

These are a few of the developments that needs to be done to complete this website. A full brief will be sent to the selected bidder, if any. Any developer will have a clear understanding of what is required and all links and outlay will be sent to the selected bidder.

The website and concept has already been live for the past 6 months and has a membership base of over 700 people. I am willing to relinquish a 15% share option for the person who would be interested in having a vested interest in the concept (SA developers only). Details for this will be agreed upon after I am satisfied that the right person is on board with the project.

I have been burned by 3 developers up to date and I'm looking for serious skilled people who knows what they are doing. The website can be developed in PHP or Java. Preferably PHP. The current site is coded in PHP. Only bid if you know you can handle a project of this size as there are a lot of functionality that the website needs to handle.

Also note that this site will always be an ongoing development and the services of the selected bidder may be used for future features and developments. The website will firstly be built for the South African market, but international expansion needs to be considered from the start of the development. I can also brake the project down into phases with payment being made after each phase is completed and I am satisfied with the end result.

This is a very exciting project and will be something interesting to work on. Attached is a mock up screenshot of the landing page of the website to give an indication of what you would be working on.

I am looking for someone that can communicate over email and also that can think outside the box to help make certain features function better.

I'm looking forward to hear from developers and interested parties.
