I'm in need of a smallish contest script written. My minimum requirements are that the script be able to allow users to sign up for the contest by supplying thier name, address, email, etc. They would then select a password, or the script would select one for them.

To play the contest, they'd register, by entering their password into a form. The script would keep track of how many times each contestant submitted their password, and would be able to show a winner by displaying perhaps the 5 highest people who have entered the contest the most.

I wouldnt really want the end users to neccessarily see if they were in the lead or not ( unless a programmer could give me a reason for this; usually in those cheezy mall drawings for a car, or $250,000 you are allowed to enter as many times as you want, but you cant tell if their are more cards with your name on them in the bin, than anyone elses). I also dont want them seeing whos winning at any given moment, as to reduce the load on the server.

I'd like the script set up in such a fashion as to allow the contest to start at 12:01 am of the first day of the month, and it to end at 11:59 of the last day of the month. This will stop cheaters. Of course the script would need password retreiver for those people who lose their passwords.

1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.

This script to be made, will be run on a rackshack server. I believe they use linux.

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
Dec 5, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

Special Conditions / Other:
Need a working model, on my website, by 12/5/02. You will be provided the ftp details, in order to set it up. Doesnt have to be much to look at, in this short time frame, but needs to be working.

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.
All monetary amounts on the site are in United States dollars.
