Um, did you read what I posted? I showed examples of the kind of website I wanted, and also said what pages I want. It's for people to read my webcomic.You did not supply nearly enough information.
I also asked for interested applicants to reply in email.
Here's some example questions you can answer (note that this isn't some be-all-end-all list or anything, you can still give more or less information then what answering these would provide):
What server/framework will power the website? Apache? nginx? Django? Flask? Ruby on Rails? node.js?
Do you want the website to support legacy browsers?
Do you want the website to be static or dynamic?
How intricate will the design be? Will it be a simple one/two column layout like the ones you linked or more complex?
Will there be any form of user interaction?
Do you want your "donate" button to automatically update a reporting page somewhere based on donations received?
Will there be any incorporation of the Facebook and Twitter APIs?
Is uploading the webcomic images via FTP desirable?
Right now you basically asked for someone to make you a website that can display pictures and has some links on it. It's good that you are willing to pay for the work, but you need to supply more information.
I didn't mind that he wanted more information, but the questions he asked me were ones that were already answered in my OP, specifically 'what content?' - obviously a gallery of pictures and a webcomic. ^^
I was hoping people with the skills of making this website would email me, and that I could answer any interested people more fully and privately than in a public message board.
I feel I might have crossed some line expecting an email exchange? I'm sorry if I did; I only asked because it's more convenient - I have a smartphone that alerts me when I have new email so I can reply instantly.
Wow, this really shows how much I need a person with this know-how. I barely understood ANY of those specifications HAHA!
The ones I can answer is that yes, the layout should be very simple for navigational purposes, two columns with a header image up top.
I'm based in Australia, and for now I won't be uploading more than 10GB a month most likely, but I will expand in future.
'Donation' should go into a Paypal account.
A 'like' feature through facebook would be nice but is not completely necessary.
It would be great if the viewer could navigate through the comic pages by simply pressing the left and right arrow keys (as well as providing clickable buttons in the same way).
I'm actually laughing right now, because my lack of knowledge in this area will probably have some of what I say ending up on 'clientsfromhell.com'...Facepalm away!
