The first question I would ask is why you want to recreate something that's been done to death for over 15 years? Times change, people change with new opportunities popping up daily. Those programmers will ask you what functions you want. Do you want to be able to maintain it yourself or hire someone?Reason why i want to know what goes into dating site is so i know who and what type of programmers to hire.Thank you in advance for your input Edited by tarzanhunter, 01 March 2013 - PM. Drupal may be a good platform, find a developer who knows Drupal inside out and they should have the programming skills to make it happen.Thank you Hello Everyone, I want to start my own dating site.I have an amateur knowledge in creating static sites and for my new dating site venture, i have a feeling that i am going to need more than just a static html site.
Some info on Drupal and dating sites; The first question I would ask is why you want to recreate something that's been done to death for over 15 years? Times change, people change with new opportunities popping up daily.You can get hire cheap programmers at freelance sites but unless you have a specific target market and unique competitive value, I fear you are wasting your money. Look at trends less traveled or ones that haven't been born. That's where the money is (indirectly mentioned a few weeks ago) and we are a big crowd. A year ago a childhood friend mentioned his nephews wanted to build a social site. I think they spent over five figures (not much, but ALOT for them) for what turned out to be a basic message board for hunters. Only a select few could, yet they seemed to claim thousands of members. Did all the wrong things as I've watched the site practically die after only six months.. In order to get that million I'd prepare the greatest business plan ever with monthly reporting schedules full of information and progress.Just imagine any dating site out there, i want to know what type of technology a typical dating site uses to make the site operational.Obviously i am not going to create the site on my own, i am going to hire professionals who are capable of doing this.
UPDATE: I would appreciate people to actually read my question and not just glance over it.I need to know HOW to do the site; even though i appreciate it, i am not looking for opinions on whether or not if the site should be created.
