Hi and Welcome to my project.
This is a big job and I need an efficient and professional company or individual. You will be responsible for redesigning the entire site to my bespoke request.
First of all the site MUST HAVE/BE:
-W3C Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict Table-less CSS markup under SEO Semantic Coding (Applied to homepage only)
-Viewable in the all the latest and some older versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, AOL and Opera.
-A flexible layout width dependent on the browser size etc, resizeable fonts, commented code (so additions can be made) and be an SSI template.
-Translatable from and into english (standard language), chinese and japanese. (If you have or know of software that can do this with additional languages then that will be even better).
You will initially have to install the new Content management system which the site runs on. This is what you will be designing the site around. Please visit: http://www[dot]onarcade[dot]com/demo[dot]php.
I need the site to look very similar to: [http://www[dot]gamegarage[dot]co[dot]uk
You will be expected to make any changes I will and it is very likely that I will need additions made, which will be mentioned when the programmer is selected.
Key features of the site:
-Must have a HTML template designed and Implemented into the CMS, so whenever text is entered into the administration email section it will be placed into the email template and sent to the users.
-RSS and XML feeds relating to the sites content
-I need a membership system designed and integrated so that users can pay for a premium member ship, this will only cost $1 per month or $5 per year and will be charged via paypal. The system must be able to detect when the users premium registration will expire and send email notifications 7 days prior to expiration on monthly payees and 1 month prior on yearly payees.
-A code on the homepage that will rotate the advertisements, so I will be able to install my valueclick media code and then also have my sites banners on rotation (If possible I would like to be able enter percentages to distinguish the weight of each ad code)
-2 Flash banners, 1 designed for the benefits of VIP registration and 1 for the benefits of registering on the website. (The banner should be of a similar quality to the following in this link: http://www[dot]bigmoneyarcade[dot]com//design/banner[dot]swf.
There will be other small requirements to be made which can be talked about in depth via an instant messenger.
-Payment released via escrow after the project is complete
-You will have a 14 day deadline for the site to be completed in, any extensions will mean a $100 removal from the final payment
