Most professionals have a minimim billing unit - eg, I bill min 1 hour then 15 minute intervals after that. The actual work might only take 10 minutes but what about the time it takes to read this thread and the related thread to extract the information about the job from you, then theres the paperwork, creating an invoice, billing you - potentially chasing you up when you don't pay, time spent communicating with you.
Ok fine. You guys would like to be payed what a person would normally hire you for and yet here you guys are helping others for free. Well basically i am just asking for someone to help me out for free and when they do i just send $10 as a gratitude. And Nancy, I'm sure you guys spend at least 1/2hour a day just browsing. I see that you had viewed everything i had said and the related thread. Does that mean i have to pay you because you took your time read it? Sure you guys have to do the paperwork, invoice and such when someone hires you but i am not really hiring you guys and there is no need to create an invoice, billing and even chasing me if i don't pay. (its not even worth it to do so). I am sorry for the other guys who would like to be payed for full amount but i just do not have the money in my paypal account to send it to you. Also to that one guy (forgot his name) When i asked him to fix the script so it would work in IE then i'll pay him then i also offered $3 more if he could add an additional piece script to the one he already provide, I'm sorry. It must of felt as though i was being cheap and that you'll do anything for money. But that wasn't what i attended it to be. But more of a gift to show my gratitude. I also would like to say that i'm sorry but the script you do provide did work in IE and i didn't notice that it was actually my fault for why it wasn't working. I hope this clears up all the drama here. xD
