I want to use a CMS for a very big project, an open source project no less, which CMS could offer the following options ?
*User made profiles
*An integrated forums system.
*some form of direct communications (chat, IM, or Messages)
*E commerce (to allow others to donate to the project)
*advertising (will be using adsense)
*contest/ awards management system.
*Photo Galleries (to post screen shots/validations)
Obviously I can't hand out to many details as to what this project is, although I hope that wont hamper your input. I was leaning towards DRUPAL, any thoughts ?
Edit: I will give you a clue, this project will be aimed at the tech community. It is the goal of the project team to NEVER charge for the services we will render and NEVER
use bias. We are currently 3 members but looking to expand.
One more thing, the name. Project Zulu.
You can apply to become a member of the project at firstname.lastname@example.org
To become a member of the project you shouldn't send an email saying 'pick me' or 'I want in' you should send an email with the following.
Who you are: DO NOT
give an address or phone number. We are simply asking for a simple bio. Name interests etc.
What you bring to the table: Skills, knowledge, etc.
How you could help and why you would want to: Being open source/free means that this will not be a paying gig, just something by techies for techies. That being said tell us why you would want to help, and how you think you could.
What you've done: Any real world experience.
If you are accepted as a team member you will be put in the know. There are no strings attached and anyone can apply.
so if you're looking to be a part of something bigger, let us know.
