Building A community leliphent msg:1562626 4:06 pm on Apr 27, 2005 (gmt 0) I am looking to build a community based site similar to myspace and friendster. I know these dating style sites are all the rage these days.
I have been toying with some of the dating scripts out there, but I am not overly impressed with most of them.
Any suggestions on what to use?

Best advice? Build your own. Or, come up with what you want it to do and pay someone to custom build it. leliphent msg:1562628 4:31 pm on Apr 27, 2005 (gmt 0)
what price range would that be in? treeline msg:1562629 4:58 pm on Apr 27, 2005 (gmt 0)
You can't set a price on such an open-ended project without more detail. Lots more. But if you were paying someone to do it, it's reasonable to expect it to cost more than off-the-shelf scripts. Do it yourself, depends on how you value your time. leliphent msg:1562630 5:06 pm on Apr 27, 2005 (gmt 0)
same style as friendster.... rogerd msg:1562631 9:43 pm on Apr 29, 2005 (gmt 0)
I'd suggest getting your specs together, including "must have" features, and putting up a bid request at one of the popular freelance sites.
Before you do that, though, check out hotscripts or similar sources to see if there is software out there the does what you need, or that does most of it and can be hacked to do the rest.
