Last chance to suggest features for the first version. I'll start a bidding thread this weekend.

So you are actually serious about writing the software completely from scratch ?
This way it will take YEARS to achieve the number of features of the current forum, unless it is based on one of existing forum systems. And you have *completely no guarantee* that it will be in any way faster or more secure than ANY of the existing systems.

This is madness.

As I've said several times before: I don't care how the software is built. It would be fine to make a bunch of modifications to SMF or any other software.

OK sorry, misunderstood.

Please include an API of some kind (REST, SOAP, JSON-RPC, whatever) that is capable of at least:

  1. Getting a list of forums/topics/threads

  2. Retrieving messages from a forum/topic/thread

  3. Posting to a forum/topic/thread (provided proper authentication, of course)

I'm sure lots of people would find this useful for lots of things.

I will happily write and operate an NNTP gateway for bitcointalk.org if such an API is available.

In terms of features-gained-per-hour-of-development-effort you really can't beat the return on providing a nice simple API.  It lets other people do the stuff you don't have time for.

The printing press heralded the end of the Dark Ages and made the Enlightenment possible, but it took another three centuries before any country managed to put freedom of the press beyond the reach of legislators.  So it may take a while before cryptocurrencies are free of the AML-NSA-KYC surveillance plague.

I'll put an API in the "other optional features" category.

Hello,

Our company has experienced and motivated team to build forum software as you specified. Also we have our own ideas which implementations you can rule. We have virtual working environment for project management. We keep all our promises and will deliver high quality in schedule. Data migration service and support also after implementation will be included.

If needed, my company can also offer hosting for forum or for other server software with SLA without any cost.

Our customers are organizations from the private and public sector. You can ask portfolio from me. Please contact via PM so I can offer contact details.

Thank you for this opportunity,

Request

Edit: Just wanted to make sure that we will deliver the service for 500 BTC (we can always discuss about the final price). We are registered company and we will offer very fair service contract. As a owner of this company I can offer the service for very low contribution margin as kind of donation (I don't need any promotion, there's no "tiny print", I just want to support the Bitcoin community the way I can).

Edit 2: One more word about our team. One of our team members has worked as professional system administrator in ESET (http://www.eset.com/). He will confirm all the security aspects of the service.

Knowledge is power.

Wow - that's some pretty powerful software for $1500USD.  Smiley

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to prayers.

Thanks for your comment. I didn't know exactly what was the exchange rate of BTC at the moment but as you know it is a very variable. I can always discuss about the price. Smiley

Did this thread ever get started?  I can't find it (btw, a way to search for threads started by a particular author would be useful in the new software Wink)

I think it has been suggested before to show the threads someone started in their profile, similar to posts.
