This is a request for proposals on revamping an existing game portal.
Currently I have a game portal that allows users to play 4 different card games as wll as Chess and Backgammon. The games are written in Java.
The Site is modeled after Yahoo!Games and it is in working order.
However, because the number of users are growing, I need some one that is well versed in Java programming/Game development to review the site and tune it for better performance. Currently the applets sometimes hang, do not load etc. **Conversely you can re-do the games in either Java or Flash with the same functionalities. Howevere, Please let me know exactly what you are going to do when you bid so I can compare the bids accordingly.
In addition I need the developer to revamp the website as well but that is not the big task (maybe 1 or two web pages and CSS)
Please provide your profile/experience for review before the bid is accepted.
**Please also note that upon successful copletion of the project, the bidder is reimbursed with 75% of the funds. Afterwards I reserve the right to test the site for a period of 15 days to 1 month to ensure that there are no remaining bugs/problems
Let me know if there are any questions/problems

Just to clarify, if you are trying to re-design the games in Flash, you should know that the games are multiplayer and you can as well play against the computer in the absense of necessary number of players.
In addition some rework is required on the page design itself
