    Well, since VPL is still growing - a lot of coders aren't here yet - or those that are good enough for you to hire - so if you post "Looking for a programmer", I'd recommend that you also try Freelancer.com - so that you can find someone willing to work in your budget range, and possibly some new coders - but if you request for a coder from there - and you're not sure if they're good enough - then ask for a code check or something on our programming general.

    Remember folks - coders help you out with your pet game, but they do cost money - Freelancer.com is a place that specializes in freelance work - and I've seen it recommended by a few people - so I thought I'd make a thread about it.


    Good luck finding coders - and if you've used Freelancer.com, then post your experiences with that site here.

    Keep in mind there can be a fee or percentage that goes towards the site itself... they have to make money too.

    My personal experiences with freelancer.com and guru.com have been horrible. A lot of bids from scammers, a lot of miscommunication with people who can't speak English (they claim to be in the U.S., but are actually outsourced), and a lot of failed timelines.

    Freelancer is awful. Honestly try DeviantART forums if you can't find anything here
