I am looking to designa HIGHLY SCALABLE site which is similar toa sical networking/dating site. Features include :
1. Using SQL and [url removed, login to view] 3.5 with weight balancing of the database(discuss).
2. Three membership levels with different permissions. One level with extensive profile search.
3. Members have their own pages/profiles with photos and ONE embedded intro video (small). Members choose themes for their profile.
4. Ability to rate a member in 3 categories and leave comments in the profile.
5. A discussion forum where the rating of the member is shown and clicking the picture would take one to his/her profile.
6. The entire site is CSS friendly so the theme can be changed easily. Also highly "modulized" so specific sections can be turned on or off.
A streaming video section. This is NOT user submitted.
7. SEO friendly profiles.
8. Advertising spots on top, right and bottom.
