NOT A HOT OR NOT STYLE SITE!
I've purchased a script that does about 80% of what I want, unfortunately that's not enough. If you'd like to see what it does and doesn't do, please pmb me.
Here is what I need the script to do:
1. Register contestants
a. email verify each registrant.
b. only one registration per email.
2. Private contestant control panel
a. Contestant can select a specific contest to enter.
b. select a category within the contest and write a descriptive/promotional text describing their entry.
c. upload an image to be voted on for contest.
d. a 'social network' style link is made available to the voting page the contestant can use on other sites. (similar to a digg this button)
3. Public contest website
a. visitors see available contests to vote on.
b. votes are restricted to one per visitor, done by ip address and cookie.
c. Contest pages ordered by top vote getters
d. visitors can search for contestants based on contest criteria and categories.
e. visitors may register to comment on images
f. non-registered visitors may only read comments.
g. the template will need to easily integrate products from a data feed based on keywords from the contestant description and show these products to all viewers.
4. Admin Panel
a. ability to suspend contestant accounts, removing them from contests.
b. ability to approve submission/images prior to appearing in the contest.
c. once a submission/image is approved an email is sent to the contestant with notification they are accepted and ready to compete.
d. Start and end contests based on dates.
Project will need to be completed and ready for launch no later than 7 days after winner programmer is chosen. If you are not able to complete the project this quickly, you're bid will be canceled and a new programmer will be chosen. This is not a hobby site and must be done quickly and professionally.
Additional details and requirements may be added as needed.
