This project is for the creation of an escort directory website.
The purpose of this site is to allow escorts (female/male/trans) to create a profile/mini site and to advertise their services. It should be designed in such a way that minimal admin work is required - admin should only be verifying accounts and not needed to conduct ongoing work.
We are looking at offering 2 levels of membership for escorts.
Free: Restricted - hide messages from escort after a limit has been reached and encourage them to unlock their account by upgrading. Also Hide their mobile from being displayed after a certain limit.
Paid: Ability for unlimited enquiries, multiple photos, ability to have an additional locked photo gallery, chat app, .com domain and associated email address. All Billing to be managed by our shopping cart which is already prepared. However we will need a description upgrade page on the site - to help promote and provide instructions on how to upgrade their account.
The following functions/features are required;
- Easy and clean navigation, with ability to refine results based on particular locations (only show boys/girls/trans/age).
- Use Calendar to display members who are traveling to that city and the dates they are available.
- Location database - to build as people signup, and to check against duplicates. (perhaps by using post/zip codes?)
- Ability for Public to sign up to email notifications of new members in their specified city and of their specified desire.
- When viewing a members profile - public can send them a message using a form - which then sends the message to the members inbox. Admin should have ability to see this message and to also block the public person's IP and Email Address for future messages (if they send abusive of advertising messages to members).
- Use similiar forms to our DUS project
- Verify Email address (through link verification).
- Phone number hidden - must click button to show it (records to statistics and account limitations)
- Email Form
- Emphasis on photos
- Travel Calendar
- Description of Services etc..
- If able to do webcam shows - link to their DUS account.
- Show if online or when last online.
- Also ability to have a small chat app (similiar to those used on myspace profiles) added to paid members - so that they can chat live to potential customers. The public do not need to create an account or anything, they are just prompted to enter in a name as they enter the room.
- All signups go to pending until payment and/or verification are approved by admin.
- When upgrading an account select an expiry of their account, and then after that time their account reverts to a basic account, email notifications to member when their account is approaching expiry (use coding from LWE 1.0).
- Management of public updates
- statistics of the whole site (who has had their number clicked, emails ....).
Design of the site can be based or copied from [url removed, login to view] however please change the colours.
I recommend checking out the following pages as examples of how others do it:

= This would be the main competition - however we are offering services for women as well - this site is quite ugly to navigate and old.

= This site is looking good and would be our main competition.
