    PHP Devloper Wanted!

    Hello!

    Me and a Friend are discussing creating a Social Networking site. We know little HTML, but I do have a HTML book at hand. Obviously it will require MySQL, PHP etc. For now though my role is to get the front page done. With login and register boxes. We have not yet come up with a name, as we will do this last. We are looking for many people to help us create a new better Social Networking site. To start with it'll be simple but we want to go viral and better than Facebook. We need lots of people behind us, and if you're interested and you think you can be of help in any way at all then let me know by commenting / posting below. I also need some help with the front page, and will need help along the way. Everyone will be accepted, provided that you're trustworthy and can prove you can do some sort of coding to make this good. We're looking to have a social network where you can add others, message, chat etc. Similar to Facebook, but with a few differences too. I will reply ASAP to anyone who comments as we want to get the ball rolling. So if you're interested, post below! Payment WON'T be available as this will be a hobby - if it becomes big enough we will pay everyone who has worked on the project! Help is required to get this to happen. If you feel you could help in ANY way comment!! We want to get this to happen. The front page is being created, but need people to help make Register Forms etc. We also are considering creating a web browser and search engine. if you could help in anyway at all - whether it be graphics or creativity or coding then comment below. If you help and this goes big you'll be part of something amazing - everyone will have a job and no-one will be left out. Noone will be paid but positions will be applied for pay once created.

    Hi, i would not mind being involved in my spare time, i have two social sites now and also have a chat site. I also build my own sites as well as write some of my own application software. I have about 18 sites in all. I am no pro to the exent of some others on here. And not sure where i would be without their help on this forum, it is a great forum.

    Which goes to show that when everyone pitches in great things can happen.

    But i have a question for you, what is your niche? I have my own social software so im not bound by anything legal. And i have been in the social business for years now. So i know dating/social sites are a dime a dozen because many of them load their sites up with a purchased db of members they can buy online. Rather than do it the honest way one member at a time. So you have to have a niche if your going to play ball with the big boys. More sites fail miserably than those that dont.

    If your going to compete in the big game do you have financial backers to get you the exposure you need? It is much more than just placing a site on a host and they will come, they wont if you dont have a niche and something that no one else has. Thats just the way it is. Of course i guess you could be dishonest yes i said dishonest because thats how i see it, and purchase a 10,000 member db online and make people think your huge, but if that is your game plan then i really dont want to be involved. If not then yes i would be interested.

    I hope you understand the discipline and patience it takes to make this happen and will to take 4-6 years to really get it off the ground because thats what it will take unless you have something very explosive in mind.

    Thanks...

    I have so much to say on this it's unreal, some constructive and some positive.
    I'd like to speak to you further about this, I can do front end development with relative ease (HTML, CSS, jQuery) and can do some PHP/MySQL, though I am optimising what I know, I can do most things; now it's a case for me of learning the best way to do things (as some of the people on this lovely forum have helped me today).
    Your project is definitely something I would be interested in though, drop me an email on Contact@MattSheppard.co.uk

    After reading Duran's post, I will agree that unless you're building it a member at a time, I don't particularly want to be a part of it.

    We're not going to be faking any members. Everything we do will be legal. Illegal is such a risky road, and I'd never want to be involved with that. Hope that explains all. Let me know if you're still interested. We're NOT doing anything illegally, its all legit / legal.

    I can just about handle any end of it, although i would prefer NOT to do the templates, they bore me to be honest and there are many more creative minds out there that can create an attractive and unique template.

    From coding php html to db structure work i can do. If you would like to see one of my social sites take a look at www.goldwingsocial.com

    This is in the incorrect forum. Moving from PHP to collaboration.
