Please Read and Review My Detailed List of Requirements Prior To Bidding
I am looking for a competent, experienced, efficient and innovative programmer and designer to create a penny auction site that is 100% FREE of ALL BOTS/SHILLS and unauthorized back doors.
I am looking for someone who knows penny auctions very well but is willing to help me put a innovative spin on the design of the site itself. All customizations would need to be done to my standards and work flawlessly. Timers need to be spot on, admin panel needs to be user friendly and proficient w/ current bidder stats etc.
I DO NOT want a Swoopo etc. type clone script. I am looking for a custom, tested, fully functional and clean script only!
In order for me to consider your bid, you must have a 9 star rating or above unless you are a new user. I must see a working demo and 6 or more active/live sites running showing your work. 4 of which MUST BE Penny Auction sites and 2 showing your range in programming, graphic capabilities and innovation. If you are a NEW USER, I need a working demo and 10 or more active/live site links, 5 of each penny auctions and 5 sites showing your range in programming, graphic capabilities and innovation. The more I have to look at the better decision I can make.
I believe it is very important to be as upfront as possible to my expectations, prior to your bidding on my project in order to be fair to all parties involved and be kept within budget. I do expect the same in return. I do require to have sole rights to the program in its entirety and your agreement, not to use the programing used in my site or discussed during the build process, altered, spun off, etc. for the purpose of use on or with any other site whether applied to this site or not. If you have any questions please contact me before you bid and I will do my best to answer.
The time frame is as soon as possible. However, it must be properly made not rushed.
IT IS 100% MANDATORY THAT THIS PROGRAM HAS NO BOTS/SHILLS, NO HIDDEN BACKDOOR PROGRAMS OR AUCTION RESERVES, SQUATTERS, ETC. THIS MUST BE A CLEAN SITE ALTOGETHER AND ANY MISCHIEVOUS PROGRAMMING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!
Because I plan on giving the face lift of typical penny auctions a new fresh look it is hard to compare any other site to. The closest I can come would be [url removed, login to view] with modifications but implements from functionality of many other sites as well. I am creating my own site, not re-creating another.
This is a list of required features in addition to the basic starter script as of today and is very close to being complete.
I am am open to expertise suggestions but was thinking Linux/php/html/MySql interface would be ideal with the capabilities offered. Again, open to suggestions and education on that.
