Please excuse my complete ignorance when it comes to computer programming (I got an A in the class in hs but that's about it lol). I'm in awe of what you guys do!
I realize web design is different, so if I'm just making an idiot of myself for asking this here please be kind!
I have an idea for a pretty basic website very similar to tickld.com's design in that users can submit items that show up under "new" and readers can upvote it or downvote it. Then you can view the "Top all time" and "Top weekly" items which have the best score in descending order.
How hard is this kind of site to make? I'd need to hire someone to make it so I'd need to know how good the programmer would have to be and about how much I'd need to pay.
Any insights would be appreciated!
