User review and ratings website

Repost: The previous bidder was in over their head. The coding and DB schema was crap and the site is full of bugs. I want to start over with someone who knows what they are doing.

View failed attempt


[url removed, login to view] user: password: !#Freelance



LAMP - MySql 5.1+ / PHP 5.2+

JQuery + UI with themeroller support

Entire site must support a scalable and choosable languages with the site being in English but reviews can be entered in any language.

All DB Schema's must be approved by me before proceeding!

High-Level Overview


I need a site that rates contracting agencies in a scientific (emotionless) manner. Users will submit their reviews and based on how the questions in the review are answered the agency gets ranked on a 5 star system. Review areas:

1. Application Process (5 stars)

ex. Does agency acknowledge application? Were you submitted for position? etc.

2. Interview Process (5 stars)

ex. Did you get an interview? Was a rejection reason given? Did you get the position? etc.

3. During Contract (5 stars)

ex. Rate. Scope of work matched expectations? etc.

4. Before/After contract communication (5 stars)

ex. Does agency personally and retroactively contact you? etc.

When submitting a review to system questions (1-4 above) users can also submit text comments in as many languages as the system supports. For the users each review per language counts as a submittal for that reviewer (used for random monthly money draw).

Each review can be modded up or down by other users (Similar to [url removed, login to view]) and also replied to. After the user submits 10 reviews they get Mod points. They can use these points to rank other text reviews. 10 reviews = 1 Mod allowed per 24hrs, 25 = 5 Mods per 24hrs, 100 = unlimited.

All users will be given a random id to use the site and each review will be completely private and untrackable to the reviewer. Only email address will be stored in the system and a salt-based authentication system for password is to be used.

The main page will display the agencies that have the highest and lowest ratings for a period of X days.

I expect you to security harden the site. ex. Escapes on AJAX/PHP/MySQL queries etc.



Users will have three viewing options.

1. Free view. Users can view overall ratings (average of #1-4 at top) and user reviews. Anyone can view information without logging in.

2. Basic User. For small monthly fee (USD$2/month on 12 month subscription) users can view rates on a industry level per country.

3. Premium User. For full subscription (USD$10/month on 12 month subscription) users can view rates on any project any user has submitted.

Reviewers will get entered into a monthly drawing for cash reward ($100-500/month). This will be a manual process performed by myself.

Site must support Paypal and I would like to discuss about Mastercard/Visa support. This is one area where I'll need YOUR expertise as I have no previous experience, and no idea where to begin. It has a quasi-payment system as it is now, but I want Paypal.

Detailed Design


The detailed design is basically in the website at the top. If you can make it better or have ideas to bring to the table I welcome them.

In Project communication


You must be able to demonstrate progress is made. Contactable via Skype and email only but I am only available after 8PM Sydney time. So please factor this in to your bid.



Escrow payments will be made per milestone. Milestone payments are:

1. 33% for User being able to submit review for each of the review types.

2. 33% for viewer being able to view review and apply mod points and reply to reviews

3. 33% for additional remaining parts of the project (themeroller, user creation, billing etc)

For every bug I find, $10 will be deducted from total payment. I expect you to check your work, I demand a professional solution!

Points of clarification:

1. As hid the username for the site use the following.
User: FreelanceTest
Pass: !#Freelance

2. The scope of the project includes back end/server and front end/UI development including the map functionality.

3. The scope is a new website from scratch, not 'fixing' the existing site.

Added Power Point showing required functionality.

Skills: jQuery / Prototype, MySQL, PHP, Reviews, Website Design
