The basic site that will be cloned is http://www.artistopia.com.
This is one project in a series of projects ranging from (500-5000) so if you are selected and do not perform to standard, your reputation will be hurt and we will never consider you for any of our other projects. However, if you are selected and perform to standard, we will be more then glad to award you other high paying projects.
We will be adding some additional features/modifications to this site make it fit our specific purpose. (will be discussed in PMB)
You must be able to develope this site so that the php coding/functionality is seperate from the design aspect -- please specify what templating system you will be using.
You will be responsible for coding and design -- however if you are not capable of doing both there is a possibility that we could partner you with someone and offer you smaller pay.
All payments will be made using GAF escrow--- NO EXCEPTIONS so please do not ask.
A project plan will need to be provided prior to the start so we have an idea of what you will be completing each day. We are looking to deal with professionals.
Daily updates are MANDATORY and this is what your payment will be based on.
An example of how it will work:
If you submit a development plan based on a 30 day turnaround time we will wait to here your daily update to make sure you accomplish your goal for that day or at least came close to it. Then, we will deposit 1/30 of the money into the account. The second day, the same thing and you will get another 1/30 into the escrow account. By the time the project is complete, you will have 75% of the funds in escrow waiting and when the project is complete the additional 25% will be added. The release will take place upon successful completion and uploading to our server without any bugs.
Please make sure you can complete the project in the time frame you are given. I have ran into many individuals on GAF who take on more work then they complete, then just simply stop responding.
You will be given a 5 day grace period beyond what you bid. Every day beyond this that the project is not complete, we will deduct 5%, meaning if the project is delivered 10 days after it is suppose to be complete, you will only receive 75% since (5% x 5 days) 25% will be deducted.
If more then 3 daily updates (or 2 consecutive daily updates) are not given, we reserve the right to cancel the project and you agree to release the funds we have deposited into escrow. You will not receive deposited money for missed daily updates.
This is a serious project meant to reward those who are professional and courteous in their business dealings. If you are not courteous and professional enough to provide us with daily updates like you agree to in your bid, then we will not be courteous enough to provide you with pay for that day.
