    Macintosh Offering Rewarded for completing my request

    Hello,

    I dunno if this is against the rules, so please don't ban me.

    Hi,

    I stink at PHP and coding and stuff like that. So I'm offering a runescape account ( I know that might be noobish, lets just say I'm not old enough to pay people money yet ) and it is has level 90 hunter, 83 combat, 1m in cash and 4m in items.

    If anyone can make a forum just like runescape.com's, with the working background and everything, I'll give them my account and they can of course be a co-owner of the forum.

    I'm a nooby coder, I'm to young to start coding, and to young to pay people. So can anyone please make a forum just like runescapes, with all the working features, such as clicking a button and hidding a post, closing threads, moving them, etc.


    My email: [removed] -

    I will take very very very very very very very good care of the forums, I'll advertise it, I'll make wise choices when picking moderators also.

    First of all, this is the wrong forum to have posted this thread in. This belongs in the Web Projects board. See posting guidelines.

    Secondly, I don't think 'pay' that you are offering is worth a site such as this. PHP programmers aren't cheap, and I presume the forums you are trying to replicate will be quite complex. Therefore an experienced programmer would want much more 'pay' for the job you are offering. Do some research into what freelance programmers would look for per hour, and you might see what I mean.

    Even if you do somehow find a programmer willing to take on this project, giving away an account from that website is probably violating their TOS. Not to mention the copyright issues from copying their design.

    As you mention that you are young, why not start learning now?

    I've tried PHP, and I know I won't be good at it, no one is there to support me because of age.

    If you start from the basics and work your way to more complex scripts as you progress then you will be fine. Check out http://w3schools.com.

    There is nothing to be 'not good' at! Simple maths and common sense is all it is.

    We have a PHP forum here that has a lot of good posters that can answer your questions as you learn.

    I started learning PHP my freshman year of high school so I was about 14 at the time. Ever since then I've been developing my skills as a hobby and now, working part-time for myself freelancing, I've made enough to pay for my college tuition.

    The best way to learn is by working on a project like this. Any time you need help just ask on these or any number of web coding forums out there. You'll be surprised at just how helpful some people can be.
    Unless otherwise stated, any code posted is most likely untested and may contain syntax errors.
    My posts, comments, code, and suggestions reflect only my personal views.

    The are a multitude of free php forums that you can use, if you feel like creating your own isn't worth your time. Just google around a bit. For example: phpBB

    I also recommend getting a book if you are serious about learning any topic. The forums are great for when that book fails you, but you will be able to move a lot faster with a book than working through online tutorials and the like.

    Good luck!
