Welcome to the "Web Projects" forums. Before you post, make sure you've selected the correct category based on the size of your project (in US dollars), or whether it is a partnership or "looking for work" request instead. Observe the guidelines for this section:
To all thread starters, check your "pm" box for responses, as that's how bidders will be communicating with you mainly using. You can turn on new pm notification by going to "User CP"-> "Edit Options"-> "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages".
To respondents, avoid replying to a thread with a short generic response like "pm sent" as much as possible. It is pointless and clutters up the screen.
To respondents, don't reply to a work request with a summary of your resume. If you're not willing to spend the time to at least read the request and respond specifically to the request, then don't reply. The Web Projects forum isn't a place to get your resume/ portfolio posted on as many threads as possible, it's for the direct, human interaction between coder and client. Members who blanket the forums with their resume replies will be treated as spammers and banned.
To all thread starters, please update your thread's prefix to "resolved", when you've found a coder for your project or partnership (or wish to terminate the request). This is so coders don't waste time bidding on an invalid project. To do this, click on the "Edit" button under the first post of the thread, then the "Go Advanced" button. You have 14 days to update your thread's title.
LMAO. Seriously mate, asking someone to design you an entire site for free is a tall order. If you want quality, then being cheap isn't the way to do it. Out of interest, what sort of site are you looking to build? Is it a personal site or a business site?
This request is no different than the bulk of the posts I see every day in this particular section of the forum. It's just that others seem to put their own little spin on it. A few individuals even manage to convince themselves that when it comes to coders, slave labor is the norm.
Anyway, here's an idea. Why not create a new "Charity" section? Sure, alot of new posts will have to be moved, but at least those who post will know where they stand.
By the way, there's nothing wrong with being a little charitable sometimes.
