Symfony2.0 PHP Location based message & info posting website

Symfony2.0 PHP Location based message and information posting website

I am looking for a website similar to Gumtree to be created, this website will not be a clone of Gumtree (it is just a similar website to explain the idea). I am NOT looking for a clone and I am not looking to violate any copyrights or break Freelancers tos.

The website needs to be created on a tight budget, although it comes with a guarantee of repeat business to add extra functionality.

The general idea of the website is public users will be able to post information to a particular city or area of the UK (similar to how Gumtree and Craigslist segment), although at first this will be locked to a specified city.

Once a user has made this post they can choose to sign up for a user account and add extra information to the website creating a "profile" that other members can view if they wish.

Main features of the website:

- Locked to any email address matching a certain pattern (for beta)

- Aimed at university students (locked to one to start with)

- Users can post and search information by area of city or post code ordered by distance

- Users can filter posts to specified filters

- Users can send each other private messages in a message system

- Users can create accounts and post information (this is not required to post - a email confirmation is used instead)

- Activity such as new personal messages is sent by email

- If a user doesn't have an account and tries to post that user gets a guest account (linked to their email address) that they can convert to a full account at a later date

- Admin area, where special users can manage accounts, posts etc (Using Symfony's auto generated admin as a base)

How it needs to be coded:

- In PHP 5.3+, with MySQL using Symfony Framework 2.0

- Conforming to the MVC framework and all conventions of Symfony

- Using YAML & Doctrine, preferably using Twig as well

- In a logical pattern that is easy to follow

- With a sensible relational database structure

- Well commented and of high quality

- In English (including function names etc…)

- More about the system than the frontend gui

How the work will need to be completed:

- At a reasonable pace

- Regular deployments to a production server so progress can be seen and quality reviewed

- With a high level of communication via email/online chat

- With Skype contact as required
