View Full Version : Rules for posting "Hiring forum posters" offers

01-16-2006, 05:28 PM
Some new rules in place to handle the surging "Hiring Forum Posters" offers. From now on, all such offers need to be added to this single thread (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=77082). Quick rundown of the guidelines:

As a webmaster offering to hire forum posters:
Make a single post in this thread (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=77082) detailinig your offer, including of course how much you're paying and based on what structure (by # of posts etc). Barters, Non montarary offers are generally not allowed, and your post will be deleted. This is a "Paid work offers" forum.

As someone interested in participating in the offer:
If you're interested in an offer you see in this thread, you MUST either pm or email the person making the offer to finalize the deal. Do NOT post in this thread, as this thread is only for the posting of offers of this nature, much like the classifieds or Craiglist.

The only exception is if you discover an offer that is a scam, not being honored, or deceiving in some way upon signing up. In that case you can post a comment in this thread, and the offer will be looked at/ dealt with. Your comment will then be deleted later.


Why the new guidelines for "hiring posters" offers?
Well, hiring forum posters for a few cents are really not true work offers requests, though they seem to be getting popular on CF. This is an attempt to control these "quasi" offers so they don't have to be banned altogether. Left unchecked, they could change the nature of the work offers forum entirely.
