Interested in developing a website like [url removed, login to view] The site would be more of a tourism information site however also provide merchant information for locals. This is a limited geographic area.
I like the layout and the tabbed access to the main features of the example site. I would need a 'Favorites' folder for the user and also a user folder like 'Itinerary' so that people who plan to visit the area can perhaps create an itinerary. Would also be interested in integrating Google maps.
Feature most important to me is a place where merchants can login create an account, create a free listing (virtual business card/abbreviated web page via common template)and have the option to purchase an advertising subscription. Advertising would provide more visibility via keyword searches on this site and sister sites, banners, and the ability to create announcements.
Site does not have to be as polished as the example. Clean/easy to use interface is a must! Web 2.0 look and feel. Not too crowded and clumsy. Haven't decided but may need room for Adsense and similar.
I'm sure this site can be programmed based on some social networking and shopping cart like scripting.
Remember - clean and easy to use interface. Easy on resources.
