We want to take our review system to the next level, and so I'm looking for someone who might be interested in a medium sizes project (preferably php) to build a mini cms type system designed for writing and browsing and comparing reviews.  like this:

pay sucks but you'll get tons of adoration and love from everyone here.

I am not that skilled, nor do I have the time right now. Sorry.

There's one PHP/MySQL script that I know of related to reviews.

Thanks for that link sri.
It's good to collect links to these things if for no other reason than to study what exists before making a new system.

I've looked at a couple of the systems already available and I think it's safe to say we want to aim beyond them. :D This will need to be custom-coded and it will probably focus a lot more on organization and inter-linking (think keywords and meta-info, dynamic grouping, etc.) than strictly on formatting. There are lots of good page editing and formatting tools out there, from WYSIWYG systems to Wiki's to LaTeX editors. Writing and presenting the reviews is not the greatest issue, it's organization that will probably make the biggest difference. That and the quality of the reviews. :)
