    A revolutionary Freelancing site Idea [Looking for a group of experts]

    Hello,
    I have a revolutionary idea which would turn around the freelancing world (I am not in the mood of jokes right now). I am serious about this.

    I would reveal all about what this idea is, basically freelancing is a huge trend going on and we already have tons of place job get bids ??? profit kind of sites.
    What I have is a COMPLETELY different approach and also a viable and optimistic approach.

    I want to partner up with some web devs and gurus, investors in this project, please note if all goes well this would be the next biggie (I am so confident about this).



    Please Pm me if you are really interested in this and provide in the PM the sites in which you have worked before.
    PM's from non-trustworthy members who PM me just for getting the idea out will be ignored. Only serious persons.

    Judging from your post above, I would say you most definitely are, because if that is the way you approach people with a serious proposition, it can only be construed as a joke.

    A horse walks into a bar. The bartender asks, "Why the long face?"

    Two guys walk into a bar. The third guy ducks!

    A priest, a rabbi, and a minister walk into a bar... Oh, wait. Nevermind! You're not in the mood.


    But seriously, if you're so confident about the success of this idea you should probably get investors first (or put up your own money), and then get PAID coders second. Coders aren't widely known to take gambles on unpaid work for the chance at being "partners" on a project (the main exception being a pair of coders both working for free on something that they enjoy - but that means both parties are taking the same loss, which is not the case in your scenario here).

    Anyway, good luck in your venture!

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
    Seek and you shall find... basically:
    validate your markup | view your page cross-browser/cross-platform | free web tutorials | free hosting

    Then perhaps you might like to respond to this post:

    unless you're planning on waiting around for someone who is either gullible or just plain stupid. No-one else would even begin to consider committing to something with the amount of info you have supplied, and also due to the way in which you have approached this matter so far.

    had a shot at it (and i live in denver- near boulder) but the dude who was the "marketing wiz" decided to act like he was five and threw a tantrum and tanked the entire project
