I would like for an experienced PHP/AJAX/MySQL programmer to create an exact clone of the web service K * A * R * Z * I .com. Please remove the stars and the spaces & check out the website. (The reason for the stars and the spaces is to prevent search engines from indexing this post.)
K * A * R * Z * I .com is an AJAX/PHP chat service that allows people to create individual chatrooms based on the room names. For example, you could go to http://www. k * a * r * z * i .com/chat/XXXX where XXXX is the name of the chatroom. Other people who also visits this exact chatroom will be able to talk to you.
The idea is very simple. The hard part of the project is designing an efficient, lag-free way for to implement so many simultaneous chats going on in all the different rooms.
I'm pretty sure there are open source projects out there that somewhat may help you write the final code.. I really don't want to worry about finding and implementing that.
If you are hired, you are responsible to reproduce every feature of K * A * R * Z * I .com... Please duplicate all the features, the layout of every page, ... but only change the color scheme & the service name.
Please visit their "About", "Explore" and "Features" pages to see everything they currently offer:
http://www. k * a * r * z * i .com/about/
I will provide more details about the design aspects in PM.
For an experienced team of programmers, this clone should be a very easy. I expect the whole project can be completed within 14 days.
I am willing to pay $500 - $1,000 depending on the results. Bonuses / long term relationships are also possible.
Please bid between the range of $500 to $1000. In your PM, please provide samples of your former work. I will be mainly looking for AJAX skills. If you have done something like this in the past, please also let me know.
Please please please visit the site and try out everything before posting!
OK, after researching similar services on the web, here's what I have found:
..... is a more advanced version of the service I am asking you guys to build. It has the more features than k * a * r * z * i .com ... and looks a lot better. In the next iteration of this project, we'll aim for something like lingr.com. However, if you are good enough to incorporate these more advance features, please feel free to talk it over with me.
..... is a simpler version of k * a * r * z * i .com. It has the barebones framework in place.
Please visit all k * a * r * z * i .com, blahble.com, and lingr.com for more of an idea of this type of dynamic ajax chatroom service.
