How expensive(hire someone) or hard would it be to create a website like this? I want to build a website where people can be users of the website with a small profile. Their is a point system (kinda like money) where people can upload documents for other to use (to gain points) or download documents (to lose points). You can also buy an X amount of points for Y dollars. Then they are able to search for documents ( for example by keyword, title, author...) and each document will have a short two sentence summary. Also are their any templates that are similar to this? Thanks any help will be grateful.
This application seems not very hard. It can be developed in 20 man days.
You can also learn PHP and MySQL and develop it in around 15-20 days.
