    You said the forum will definitely be vbulletin. Start with that first, then build out to include all that other stuff.

    Chances are every feature you want has already been skillfully packaged into a plugin over at vbulletin.org.... or if not, just write your own plugin on top of vbulletin.

    No matter what, I would defintely not waste time re-inventing the wheel. Good luck



    PS for real time chat - Sigma chat (i think it changed names recently) incorporates very well into vbulletin. But you need the professional level subscription... it's about $8/month or so last time I checked.

    Don't try to stuff everything in that short period, if the community is still growing it might be worthwhile to let the website grow with the community. That way you get a more relaxed schedule and can deliver a better product to begin with.

    Other than that, my advice would be to look at vBadvanced if the choice of vBulletin is definite.

    I blog too, you know.
