Budget is more about 2000-4000$, all depending on how good a site can be done and how fast. The goal is to have the site up and running by end of January 2012. Expirience with building a sportsbetting-forum is definatly needed.
Ideal site includes advertisements, news/articles section, list of picks by experts and newbies (separated section), detailed statistics of tipsters, forum, comments to picks and news/articles.
Users have to be able to sign-up and create a basic profile, recieve picks by email and sms, chose tipsters to follow, pay for picks-service, and post picks themselves. So a form/script is needed to post picks, that includes sport, time/date, name of match, bookie, username, units, and analyse/description.
A several other functions/extensions might be needed too, but not decided yet. We do have several sportsbetting-sites we can refer to, that we think are very well functioning and give a clear picture of what we are looking for, so it can go a little faster of getting the idea of what we are looking for.
The site will not be in english.
