I am looking for someone to create a social network site for me. I have used MySpace and facebook as examples - but nothing anywhere near as complex as facebook that's for sure or even MySpace.
I'd like the basic features, such as profile creation, browse, upload photos, comments, photo comments, messaging, friend adding, rating, blogs and maybe a couple features I've missed out, the the basics that make up a social network mainly. There are also a couple other features that we can discuss one will involve a payment system via paypal/protx.
I do not want it to be easily customized like MySpace with css, a simple theme change (the page background image) is all I am after, chosen from an on site selection.
I have a design/layout already created so the works would just need to be put into place. If modifying an existing social network script will keep the cost down, as long as it can be adjusted to fit my needs I am happy to go with that.
The site must be secure and handle a higher volume of users. My budget does NOT stretch to the $1500 specified.
