    First, let me say that I am by no means looking to set up a Poker Site to compete with the big fact, I'm not looking to set up a poker site at all.

    However, I have an idea that is well thought out that would need to be run similar in nature to a site like FullTilt meaning:

    1. Interactive membership features
    2. Loading up funds, handling bonuses and payouts
    3. Real time ranking of users
    4. Ability to join in on Service "x" with other users in real time
    5. Handle user profiles
    6. Handle a LARGE number of users OR have the potential to be expanded to handle a large number of users in the future.

    I don't want to say the service I would be offering, just know it would have to be set up like FullTilt/Poker to a certain extent, but not in the poker or gambling niche.


    But, right now I am just looking for some friendly advice on a REALISTIC price range. Are we talking $X,XXX, $XX,XXX, $XXX,XXX or what? Any guess on how long this would take to code? What the best language would be? Any advice on what to ask about when looking for a coder?

    Thank you in advance for your time and help. Know that it is greatly appreciated!

    Couple weeks to a month, would cost a couple thousand I would guess and look for a cheap coder to do it in PHP/MySQL/Javascript. If you want to higher someone more knowledgable its going to cost a lot more, you might get a guy that doesn't know how to prevent XSS/SQL injection.
