my only requirement is for them to update me on their progress daily with a quick emai
Coders can set their own pacing but i will need deialy updates via skupe. Coder must have skype. I need this add on script to work on all linux and windows servers.

So you need someone who:
I will maintain the full ownership of the plugin and will sell it for commerical purposes.
1. Has skype and is willing to call you every day with updates (presumably at no extra cost)
2. Can get the job done and test on every possible linux and windows server and configuration at short notice
3. Not take any deposit up-front
4. Have no problem with getting only $200 for something you're planning to sell commercially
Sure, you're not at all picky.
