Hello all,

I am brand new to this site and came here basically for one reason. I am in need of a programmer who is experienced and has a passion for sports.

Here is basically what i am sending everyone that i am interested in.

1) The site is "similar" to sports betting sites, but we are changing the idea of it. It will not be as complex and confusing for users. It will have the simplicity of facebook application www.sportit.com but we have more features and ideas.

2) We would like to be "facebook friendly" and allow post and updates to go to the users facebook.

3) We would need live sports feed/scores of all the major sporting events going on...this would include current, live scores and a list of games coming up. This can be seen on any sports betting
website.

4) It would need to generate who won or lost a bet automatically.

5) We would need an iphone/ipod/android application that does exactly what the site does (give or
take certain features)

There are more features that we would need that would make our site special and different from others, however i feel these will not effect the cost dramatically enough to change our mind. We understand you can not give an exact estimate, but a rough estimate will give us a ball park figure.

On top of this, we would also need the site to known. This can be done in numerous ways such as SEO, blogs, facebook pages, twitter..etc... However the biggest way to get people to your site is word of mouth so the site needs to be perfect as we feel the idea is great.

We would also need you do provide site management/updates if needed. For example anything goes
wrong or something needs to be changed/updated.

For these last two, we are offering partnerships/ownerships within the site/company.

Please let me know how you feel and are able to do this from start to finish.

Hope this helps. Please ask any questions needed. If you are interested, feel free to send me a message, comment below or send me your portfolio.

I don't quite understand - are you prepared to pay for this or are you only offering stakes in the business?

From the sounds of what you need the project would be very costly to be done professionally.

You'll get no takers with what your asking.

The programmer will be paid actually. So i will get takers. It is a large project i understand, that is why we are offering partnership/ownership with us after the project is complete if we are satisfied and impressed. We understand that programmers need to get paid for their work. The partnership will start after the site is complete and we are satisfied.
