building Social network site/Buddypress

  • talitaco


    Hi I am building a site with BuddyPress for a community ( about 2000 users ) this site is designed to be a dating /social network site.
    (no forums no blogs no chat)
    Just the options to send private messages
    open groups and comment,
    adding friends ,
    creating personal profile.
    Because I have never built a large scale website and I do it voluntarily and also storing it on my personal site server, I have a few issues I am asking for your advice:
    From your own experience or links to good articles and references.
    Should I allow the members to upload many images? My concerns are: viruses ,taking up data space , and copyright issues.
    How do you deal with cyber bullying users who are harassing other users trolls writing nasty comments(I really want this community website to be a safe place:)
    Your experience with the security issues (Trojan virus etc)
    Any Other important issues I should know?
    Any help will be very very appreciated.

    There is no cut and dried way you can prevent anyone from uploading a copyrighted image unless you just don’t allow images to be uploaded at all. As far as I know there is no possible way to automate whether or not an image has been copyrighted but if I am wrong I stand corrected. That is why its important to have moderators who can determine if there is a possible copyright infringement. As far as cyber-bullying goes then it would be wise to provide a link on your site to report the offender to you or your moderators and you deal with it accordingly. I hope this helps!
