I'm planning to build a small little web-community, and would appreciate some pointers how to best tackle it.
I've planned to let the users make their own online profile, be able to send messages and mails inside the community to each others, and have some discussion forums. Also when a user browse other users profiles they will see how well they match each others with interestes and likes/dislikes.
My questions is what kind of language I should use to pull this off most easily? Should I use CGI scripts (C/C++), Perl or ASP? What's the language to prefer?
Perhaps going with ColdFusion is a good idea?
What should I think of? Advices are appreciated a lot.
Have a great day!
