Employment Section Rules!

on: September 26, 2006, 11:32:45 am
Latest changes in red.

Welcome. This section's purpose is to allow members to post job opportunities, inform people about unpaid projects, or even contact, resume, and portfolio materials. This thread is a mandatory read if you're interested in posting to this section. Moderators will remove content if it appears to violate the rules, or guidelines listed here.

Use of this forum is intended to allow a venue for artists seeking work and employers/teams seeking artists to meet.  This is NOT a store or an auction of digital art of any kind. Anyone trying to 'sell' artwork within a thread directly for cash will have their threads deleted immediately and perhaps suffer other imposed consequences.

Title of the thread.
Give a reasonably detailed description for your thread. There are several text tags we ask that you include in your topic title to aid in identifying the purpose of the thread. They are as follows:

     [PAID] - This identifies that the poster of the thread is offering payment for services related to pixel art, or game development involving pixel art. Therefore, Artists as well as Coders may be sought. Do not use this tag if you lack the funds to pay for services rendered. While it is understood that agreements without contract assume a promisary nature towards payment, the staff reserves the right to remove content and ban individuals which abuse any publically recognized agreement on this forum through this advertisement.

     [UNPAID] - For projects seeking Artists or Coders without monetary compensation, this tag is to be used. This tag by no means restricts the poster from offering compensation through barter or paying for services at a later date when able.

     [RESUME/PORTFOLIO] A Resume and/or Portfolio tag is appropriate for individuals who wish to advertise their skills and talents. Only one Resume/Portfolio per person. You may modify or delete this thread at any time. Do not use this tag for company advertisement. By posting, it is assumed that you're at least open to receiving job offers. Please Post Resumes and Portfolios in the dedicated childforum.

Note:
     Threads that don't have a [PAID] or [UNPAID] tag or have modified versions, e.g. [UNPAID BUT AWESOME] will be deleted without notice.

Body of the thread - Guidelines for your post content.

Job offers and project notices
While we understand that some projects are secretive, we do ask that any paid or unpaid post be as thorough as possible. To this end, the following items should be implemented in the body of your post:
          1. Company title and/or individual representing and offering employment.
          2. Project title.
          3. Description of company or project.
          4. Talent/Position requirements.
          5. Payment.
          6. Contact information.

Portfolio and Resume/Contact posts
You are not obligated, but are encouaged to be as descriptive as possible. We recommend that you post under ten samples that show your range; this includes pixel art and links to software. Feel free to include the type of work or project you would like to find.


Responding to Posts
While it is recommended that you respond to a post in this section via Private Message, you may reply directly to a thread. This is not an Off-Topic section, so keep your comments relevant. Additionally, posts that are only meant to notify the creator of the thread that you have sent them a message are not allowed.

Member Powers
All members have the power to delete and lock their threads in the Employment section. If you do not want replies to a thread, it's strongly suggested that you lock and suggest PM's instead.

This concludes the guidelines. The staff may modify these guidelines at any time, so be sure to check once in a while.

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Lately seeing a whole lot of spammy / redundant "I've sent you an email" responses to these posts from forum members that don't seem to contribute to the community in any other way.  Wouldn't like to see the threads locked as some enquiries benefit all from being public, but would it be a better experience for everyone else if we discouraged posting 3 or 4 of those a day?

I've thought about this recently as well, and I agree with you. Will add something about this to the rules soon.
