I currently have a website where anyone can email a photo from their camera phone and it immediately gets uploaded to the website.
What I would like to do is upgrade this system so that the following features are available, as a result turning into a fully functional webpage.
** I NEED THIS TO BE BUILT SO THAT THE SITE CAN BE ADDED ONTO EASILY. I HAVE FOUR MORE PHASES TO PUT INTO EFFECT EVENTUALLY.
I would like the ability to have users register for an account so that the system will recognize for example all mail sent from mobile number [url removed, login to view] or email is associated with the username ‘BOBBYVAN’ so that images can contain timestamps like ‘uploaded by BOBBYVAN on June 19th @ 8:43am’
I would also like to have account profiles that show all the images uploaded by a specific user.
I would like users to have the ability to rate an image one to five stars and then be able to filter images in some sort of search system by rank.
I would like users to be able to mark a photo as one of their favorites so that they can view a gallery in their profile of all favorited images.
I would like users to be able to comment on images as well as non-users post comments anonymously. Additionally, I would like users who comment to have a post count. E.g. user bobbyvan has posted 813 comments.
I would like users to be able to select / upload a 75 x 75 pixel image avatar to display next to their username.
I would like users to have the option of being notified via email when someone has commented on their picture.
Image Tracker System
I would like to broadcast on the homepage ‘384 images uploaded today!”
Essentially what I am looking to do in the long run is combine Twitter and Youtube into a site that is meant for mobile uploads from camera phones instead of videos and just status updates. I would like to work with a development team that has experience with social networking sites and can seriously plan to build a first version of this website that can be added onto in greater detail in the future. My budget is small right now but if the site is built well I am willing to immediately dump a few thousand into upgrading it some more.
I will require portfolio samples, very solid english speaking contacts, and the ability to comment on and review the project as it is being built.
Good luck, hope to work with someone soon!
