This is a simple project at heart - a website requiring username/passwords for personal accounts but the central focus is that of a forum style message board. The site in its initial release targets London commuters (UK) travelling on the Tube Network and can place messages from people that have noticed others commuting/travelling on their journeys but they have never had the courage to say hello. An example of how one would use it: ---- I register on this site after finding it and on the left side of the site is a list of train (tube) lines. The one I use is called 'Bakerloo' so clicking on it leads onto a messageboard listing 'ads' from commuters by title and author. i.e. 'To the blue eyed woman wearing a red scarf that I see waiting for the train at 8am at Harrow on the Hill station' from John (followed by date). Forum should have good search facilities and users should be abel to message each other with ease. The site needs to be visually pleasing throughout and the intention is to have another section of the site that is a 'standard' dating site where one can see each others profiles and message them based on those profiles like most sites of that kind. To this end the coders need only 'bid' on the above initial premise and with satisfactory work be asked to build the site further for the 'standard' dating site that branches off this 'Commuter looking for' section. At the end of the day the core is ease of use, full functionality and aesthestically pleasing enough so that it can be launched to the London commuting public easily. I am aware that the above could be done by just having a few messageboards linked but the coder needs to make the site look professional and attractive to balance the simplicity of the concept - the devil is in the little details! New coders welcome - we would love to discuss various templates and possibilities.
