I need expert php developers, with demostrable CMS experience to develop a new site. I prefer Drupal but if someone convince me I'll try with Joomla. Main tasks:
-Multilingual site (install all drupal translations, browser language detection, multilingual menus, multilingual categories-tags, user can translate content and system choose best translation to show language. Please beware that this is the most difficult and long task. You must configure totally the site in English and your mother language, I'll do in Spanish, but must be prepared to be totally translated to any other language without programmer intervention.
-Adapted forums, searchable by tags clouds, organized by multilingual topics, is the main site content. I need that every registered user can initiate a new thread. People can then answer it (only registered users). Every answer can then be voted for readers (unregistered users). So, I need a rating system (karma rating for registered users) integrated in forums. So we can search forums by topic, by tag, by most readed ones or by best voted users. This is the task that will need more programming expertise and time. See [url removed, login to view] for an approximated idea.
-Registered users see a button to edit and submit forum entries translations, editors revise and let in. If user submitting translation is an editor, the second step is ommited. Then system choose best translation to show threads and topics.
-User profiles: admin, editors (moderate forums and admin users and banners, can create menu entries and manage languages), registered users (can write in forums, need and automatic registration process BASED ON OPEN ID), and unregistered users (can read content and puntuate forum entries).
-SEO friendly clean design, Marinelli based, friendly urls. I'll give you photo/s to use.
-Some other modules active: Select language module, polls module, tags cloud module, last threads modules, search by tag, google search, google ads, banners and the like.
-I want an CVS or SVN repository to check source code, beginning with the drupal package with all the required plugins installed. So I can be aware about all changes over the default install, and future changes to new drupal releases can be done easily. I'll ask for access to this repository during development and a complete final repository copy. Please include the mysql DB creation on the repository, and include on this file regular dumps from the DB, so we´ll have documented all config changes and data inclusions.
-As you will see I'm an expert programmer and analyst, but I trust totally on you Drupal expertise. I'll concrete details about design, images, modules, domain and more with the bid winner.
