    Seeking PHP/SQL codewriter

    Alright, I am currently an artist on a site called Dark Shadows Breedables. We are hoping to open soon to the public, and have been meeting difficulties trying to hold onto coders.

    This is where you come in!

    It will be a paid position once the site opens, that is the drawback. You will get your money... just not right away ^^;. If you are interested, I can put you in touch with the creator of the site, and further details can be worked out. If breedable sites are of any interest to you, you should know that you will be paid handsomly in site cash and items as well, and will be given one of the first accounts if you wish it.

    It's a challenging project, I assure you! We just recently bought a template for the site, making shops and a few other applications automatic, but the code is a mess. PHP is completely mixed in with HTML, and the CSS is horrendous.

    http://darkshadowsbreedables.com >> the current main site
    http://wicked.darkshadowsbreedables.com >> one of our admin is currently trying to form some semblance of order


    Anyone up to the challenge?
    If so, contact me at megan_starr9@yahoo.com

    Thank you for your time!

    You make it sound so appealing

    Being honest and frank with you, you're not going to get any kind of actual talent unless you are willing to fork out the $$ up front. It's really not fair to expect your coder to shoulder all the risk (there is always a risk that a project will make zero money).

    hehehe, just tellin it like it is. -coughs-

    Yes, I definitally figured that ^^; I know how much time it takes (have tried it once or twice).

    Still, can't hurt to ask! Perhaps there is someone out there bored enough or adventurous enough to do it! XD

    Hey serien,

    I know it seems like it's in your best interest not to pay somebody, I understand, but consider this though. It makes sense to say that often times someone who is bored or looking for adventures is one who doesn't yet have the experience. Are you really willing to take that chance? I mean, this potential person could end up messing up your code so much that in the end, you'll have to pay even more to fix it. This is all really common sense stuff and I'm sure you know it. I just think you could be digging yourself a hole.

    Fugimator, I think it was you who talked about many companies hiring cheap coders to finish projects and then ending up paying more to fix bugs. Couldn't agree more.

    Regards,
    Mike

    It's the best way. Nothing as bad as someone who glazes over the bad bits and just drops the crap on the coder once they've started.

    As inferred previously though, just getting someone and getting someone worth their salt are two different things. You will get what you pay for, as few, (if any), capable coders would be willing to take on a pet project, (which this basically is if it falls flat on its arse), which isn't their own. You already have code which had God knows how many problems. You're likely going to exacerbate your problems unless you are willing to pay cash straight from the go. Even then, you would need to check on whom you're hiring, to make sure their work lives upto their supposed standards and your expectations.
