The project that I currently have for one is one that a skilled coder worked on for around 4 months, and then had to leave due to personal reasons when he was 90 percent done. It shouldn't be too difficult to finish, but you should know how to manipulate the cache system, as I'll need you to figure out a way to make the cache system work with some major features im working on.
Think of how you'll implement these features before hand, and then if you can do it let me know. I'll send you the incomplete files, after you tell me how you long it'll take you to finish, be realistic.
The script at the moment is here: [url removed, login to view] : We're using the framework Codeignitor to currently do it. (do you have experience with it?)
Look at the google document i shared for the features here:
[url removed, login to view]
There will be slight changes during the project, but they should all be within the scope of the project.
I do all the css/xhtml personally so there shouldn't be any work done on that end, if you have any questions regarding that please ask :)
I'm aiming for these features plus the mirror to be done within 2 weeks tops (essentially giving you 4 hours of that time to look over the code and get slightly used to it.), and bug fixes to be done within 1 week of that during a beta test. Note I consider bugs/xss exploits part of the service, so if you mess up I can't pay you to fix it as it doesn't make any logical sense to do so.
I do like when you ask questions for major parts , but i dislike repeating myself 2-3 times, so try to reread my older emails as i send them.
If you want to argue the amount let me know, I'll take it into consideration. When this version is done, we'll simply launch and then work on a newer version with more features, which I'll hire you again for.
My site receives nearly 1 million pageviews so keep that in mind when you code. Caching, and minification is key to having my servers not die on me during the first day of launch. If you believe the ajax system needs redoing let me know. So i'll be depending on you.
I'm willing to send the source code done so far if you pm me. Also the docs for the site will be sent upon request as well.
Let me know if your interested, and of course if you can even do it :)
