I'm a web designer (primarily Flash) and I have a client that needs a social networking site. I could likely dig into Socialengine and figure it out but I think it would be cost/time efficient to hire someone with experience to help set it up and customize it. It will need the following features:
Public and private posts
Rating system for public posts
Send/receive private messages
Highlight a "featured" public post
Multiple subset forums
Ability to make some features "free" and others available only via paid subscription. Maybe even tiered premium memberships with different features. ("Gold", "Silver"...)
I will supply all of the visual elements and design direction.
The site will have dating-site-type adult content so if that is an issue please do not bid.
