If you think you could make an entire backend from scratch very similar to what gamespot.com has then email me. I am in need of someone who can come in, and design and impliment a php/mysql based solution. We currently run mygamer.com and we are redesigning the entire site from graphics to backend.

Please email me at stan@mygamer.com if you think you can handle such project.

The money is depending on time, skill set and quality of the work. If you are interested and think that you can code the entire backend to include every feature that http://www.ign.com and http://www.gamespot.com email me. We can discuss $$$. But please do not respond if you can not have this project up and running within 30 days.

Within 30 days?!?

Are you funny???

Gamespot and IGN's CMS are java based backends run on very heavily secure servers valued at the very least $400,000.

If you want something like that done in "php" (no offense to the language, but it's nowhere near Java's level of functionality yet) in just "30 days", you better pony up somewhere in the high 6 figures and seek more than one person. :roll:

The way your site is set up currently seems fine to me and half way there, why not just seek forum integration or user reviews?

Our database is not game drivin. That means when we add a review, it doesnt get added to a game, only to itself. I want the database to be game drivin. And everything added would be attached to the Game in the database. Our backend needs a total rewrite.

I sent you an email, we have a team of skilled programmers here in New Zealand who can come onboard to deliver on the toughest timelines. :)

Our quotes are reasonable and we all speak English as a first language which minimizes confusion via email.

If you didnt get my email or forgot about it and want to get in touch with me contact me: quintin {at} siteteck {dot} co {dot} nz

I think retrieving the information the way he wants is illegal. I've already said no to this guy a week ago.

That's a serious allegation. What brings you to this conclusion?

We were chatting about what he needs done, and he said something like...

"I'll need the script to... steal

well, not steal... scrape the information from ebgames.com's website"


No, thanks.

using freely available web-content is not necessarily illegal per se, unless it's copyrighted.
