THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN RELISTED DUE TO BAD EXPERIENCE FROM PREVIOUS BIDDER.
-----------BASIC OVERVIEW OF PROJECT----------
I am looking for someone to make me a membership website that is similar to the infamous myspace. However, i want it to be based on sports. I want to make a site where people can post ads to play a certain sport and for others to respond to it. I.e: a person wants to play tennis and doesn't know anyone around that wants to as well. They can signup on the site and find people willing to play in his/her area. Also i would like the option to make profiles, post pictures, keep track of matches pertaining to their sport and also to select level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) etc etc. As comprehensive as possible is the key for this website. It should have all the options a sports enthusiast may want. The most important features should be based upon contacting members, PMing, a forum, viewing scheduled matches (and with what members), option for reminders for matches via email. etc etc.

Here are some related sites first.

Something similar to all of those sites listed above. The site is meant to target anyone who plays ANY sport. They will utilize the site to create a profile of themselves and the sport they play. The site needs to be very comprehensive and allow for searching of almost anything. People should be able to search other users by sport, location, gender, age, college, high school, etc. People should be able to challenge others by searching them out and having something like “challenge this player”. Then that person will receive an email notifying they have been challenged. Anyone should be able to challenge anyone. They should have options within their profile to modify the types of challenges… meaning only accept challenges from people 10miles away, Male/female, college, and of course LEVEL of skill. When someone accepts a challenge I want it to register on both people’s account and have a “score tracker” for challenges and for what sport. For instance if someone plays 3 sports (i.e: golf, tennis, basketball) they should have an option once logged in to view their match history and it will be broken down by sport and all their match scores and with whom. I want the option to upload images- random within the profile and a user image if they want (like myspace and facebook). There should also be a forum section for people who just want to chat about sports and specific sports etc etc. Also, a built in chat so people could IM other players (if they allow it in their privacy settings- should be something they can manipulate). I want built in banner exchange on the top and sides like myspace has. Also a video section within the profile would be nice as well- and an admin option as to how big the video can be that is uploaded. This way if people have videos of their matches they can upload if they want. The site should be VERY user friendly and INVITING with superior design and a FLASH banner. There should be an admin section that is also very user friendly which allows to block, ban users, and control anything possible. Also like myspace has, there should be newly registered people appearing on the front categorized by sport(s) they play. Myspace does NOT validate email, which is why they are huge (60%) fake accounts. This site MUST validate to make sure we have the correct one on file in order for them to create the account. They should also be a built in calendar both for each individual player and possibly one available to everyone incase I want to post events etc etc. This way, users have their own personal one too and can schedule anything they would like (with reminder options sent to them by email if they choose). On the home page it would be nice to see total users somewhere and how many have joined within the last 24 hours or something. It would be nice to have a built in classifieds section also in case people want to sell/buy anything related to their sport- but not limited to sport things. This should have the ability to be either categorized by state, sport, college, etc (anything that would make sense and ease of usability). A general chat would be nice for registered users where they can have different lobbys to go in to if they would like (created by the admin of course) It would be nice to see the users picture in the chat somehow as well (like myspace does). This is about all I can think of at the moment. Let me know if you have any further questions!
I would love for the site to be created in .NET with an SQL database to make it more robust and faster than MS Access.
I have a limited fund source for this site and cannot payout the max (1500) for those of you with 100 ratings that automatically bid the max. Please be reasonable with bid amount.
Ensure you HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE, or something SIMILAR. And you have a PERFECT understanding of what i want.
I prefer people from the USA. I had a bad experience from you free lancers in India. Communication is terrible. The time zone does not help either.
I prefer to pay upon completion of the site for those who require $ in advance.
Any other questions, feel free to PM.
