This project is for a website that will feature articles with comment section below and the ability to vote user comments up or down. Ability to create user accounts and track user comment history is required. I believe Java may be the best way to do this but am open to other options as well. It will need to be done in something like Dreamweaver fluid grids to scale across multiple devices (PC, iPad, Smartphone etc.).
There's nothing revolutionary here - speed and layout will be everything.
The site will run on Linux / Apache server.
