Hi Michael, I noticed your profile and would like discuss a potential project with you. I've recently partnered with someone that had a website built, deployed in beta, then retired the site before realizing any revenue from it. In recent discussions we've decided to explore our options for redeploying it. Trouble is, we have the source code, but since I wasn't around during the development I can only tell you what little I've gleaned from browsing the source.
It appears to be CSS with heavy JSON implementation. There are a few connections to other sites (ex. dropbox for media) but I'm not sure about commerce connections.
I'm not really sure what budget to set for this. We received a quote from the original developer that just seems astronomical considering they didn't retain much of the information needed for the connected services.
The site is an adult-oriented dating platform. We'd need to rebrand it prior to launch and, personally, I'd like to see it functioning and go over it with a fine-toothed comb in order to decide what other improvements can be made.
Okay that was a lot!! Hope to hear back. I know I probably didn't offer the standard proposal details and I hope it's at least enough to continue discussions. Thanks in advance!
