I need a competent programmer whom knows English to make some adjustments to my forum which is coded in PHP and MySQL.
Here is what I need you to do:
1) Add code so that if a user tries to post less than five seconds before their previous post, they are automatically banned. (The database already exists for banned IP addresses as does code to limit the amount of time that must be between each post. You just have to adjust the existing code. This is very easy and I approximate it will take no more than 10-15 minutes to complete.)
2) Fix the user ID system. When a user visits the Web site they are automatically assigned a user ID and password through cookies. This system works but it needs improving (if a user does not have the cookies, it will endlessly try and set them). I need you to make this system more efficient. I estimate this will take you no more than 30-60 minutes.
I am only prepared to pay 30$. If you complete this work well, I have more work for you to do... If we agree that you will do extra work, I will add the agreed amount as a bonus to the payment for this project.
You will NOT be given FTP access to the Web site, I will send you files to edit and I can re-upload them. I cannot risk that you will steal my precious code.
I am not in a hurry. If you can complete this work in a couple of days that is fine.
Please only bid if you have read, understood and agree with everything above.
