    May I do like this / posting on "Web Projects and Services Marketplace" forum

    Hello guys.
    I am a new member and I was just wandering - I would like to create thread
    in "Web Projects and Services Marketplace" forum offering my webdesign services.

    I have read guidelines rules few times and I will read them few times again
    beacouse I don't want to be banned ... and have problems. So I am asking here:
    Are there any special requirements to post on " Web Projects and Services Marketplace " forum ? May I do that as a new memeber with small amount of posts made ?

    Please answer
    Regards Bartek

    If you want to offer your services then you would respond to one of the job offers already posted with either a reply to that thread or by sending a PM to that person. Creating threads just to offer your services will be considered self promotion or spamming.

    Well, the first two look indeed like self promotion and if I had moderation rights for this forum they’d have been banned right away. There is a fine line between sincerely offering your services (i. e. looking for work) and just promoting your company or cheap labor which will be determined by the moderators. And it certainly depends on the choice of words and the way of writing the post.

    As the title of that forum suggest it is for people looking for contract jobs or full time employment. Just like VIPStephan stated there is very fine line between saying "hey I am available to do such and such kind of work if anybody has anything available" vs. "Our company will develop a website for you for only $19.95.".

    meaning if you say
    "Hi my name is Bartekk and I develop website's and am looking for full/part time work if anyone has anything available"
    you should be fine
    if you say
    I develop cheap you buy service now me love you long time
    you will not be fine nor would
    "Hi my name is Bartekk and I develop website's and am looking for full/part time work if anyone has anything available"
    spamlink
    spamlink
    spamlink
    but that is how I would read it... Personally I think you are over thinking it

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE
