Virtual Memorial Web Site
Main Spaces to be developed:
3 workspaces to the site. 2 are available to the users and 1 is for administration.
The major workspace is like a virtual graveyard where one can create a memorial grave site for his/her dearest who passed away. This section includes a main flash where the user can navigate through different memorial gardens and create a flash unique memorial site for their beloved ones. There should be an option for creating this memorial site with different template, ability to write something. Users will be able to comment or write things whenever they visit (something like a blog with comments). Maybe to add a song to the page. This section is free to use for everyone. There will be an option to buy special virtual gifts for the users (like image of flowers or light virtual candles that will be presented in the page). A similar flash section (although will looked and will have different flow) can be seen in [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] . Creative unique design and photoshop art is necessary.
The second section is a private account of the users – this section is for users who want to use our real service of taking care of real graves- we give a service of taking care of graves (cleaning them, puting flowers, and priniting notes to be placed in the actual grave ) this section will allow users to write notes that will be print by us and we will put them on real graves – then we will picture it and upload it to the site so users could see the archive of thier notes with pictures of their notes on actual grave. This section cost money with several different packages of services. (Payment should be done by credit card or papal). This section allows private account for the user to see his notes status of notes (open, pendining, in process, complete with an attachment of image for each status).
third section is for the admin – to control the content of a site, be able to send emails to the users, upload pictures and docs for the second section (private acount of users) and control the entire contnet of the site. Allow different offereing and service, control process, control user list, membership types, payments, refunds, templates etc.

My experience in this area is very limited so I will need an experienced developer who can add a lot of ideas to the project and can guide me through the process. I have no preference over the location of the developer but I do need to work with someone who speaks excellent English.
