This project is to write a script to create discussion sites with the features and operations of: [url removed, login to view]
I'm looking for an original script, not a modified existing one.
Changes: The Avatar system should be local (like a typical forum), logins should *not* be shared with any other service. The script should allow local customization of theme and badge names / badge requirements.
Users must auto-register with CAPTCHA and emailed validation link.
When a topic is commented, the owner and any subscribers are emailed.
An Admin funtion must be avilable to modify posts, edit users, ban users and IPs, and back up the discussion databases.
*Final project must be delivered as an FTP installable package and configurable via a web browser
* Site should be designed for up to 100 simultaneous users with minimal server load impact
* Successful bidder agrees to correct any fatal or faulty programming routines discovered after final package is delivered.
* Full rights to package, design, and source code will belong to me once payment is made in full.
* 100% of final bid price will be placed in escrow.
* 50% transferred upon demonstration and testing of completed project at your site.
* 25% transferred upon my receipt of the installation package.
* Final 25% once package is up and running at my own domain.
