Welcome to the "Web Projects" forums. Before you post, make sure you've selected the correct category based on the size of your project (in US dollars), or whether it is a partnership or "looking for work" request instead. Observe the guidelines for this section:
To all thread starters, check your "pm" box for responses, as that's how bidders will be communicating with you mainly using. You can turn on new pm notification by going to "User CP"-> "Edit Options"-> "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages".
To respondents, avoid replying to a thread with a short generic response like "pm sent" as much as possible. It is pointless and clutters up the screen.
To respondents, don't reply to a work request with a summary of your resume. If you're not willing to spend the time to at least read the request and respond specifically to the request, then don't reply. The Web Projects forum isn't a place to get your resume/ portfolio posted on as many threads as possible, it's for the direct, human interaction between coder and client. Members who blanket the forums with their resume replies will be treated as spammers and banned.
To all thread starters, please update your thread's prefix to "resolved", when you've found a coder for your project or partnership (or wish to terminate the request). This is so coders don't waste time bidding on an invalid project. To do this, click on the "Edit" button under the first post of the thread, then the "Go Advanced" button. You have 14 days to update your thread's title.
1) Project Details: (be as specific as possible): We're looking for a social network with a similar layout and the most popular features of facebook. ie the news page, wall, groups, friends, messeging and most of the other standard in a social network. Possibly a classified section.
2) Payment Amount: $2000-$5000+ depending on features

Much the same as Gurgle I would do a DNS check to find out where an IP address resolves to, if it is legit then why does the domain name need to be hidden. In this instance obviously because the person was trying to mask the fact that they where just sending the customer to a site which had a social network engine on it which costs significantly less than the cost the customer was proposing in the first place.
