Hiring a Storyteller


  • Admin

    @Paris Oh no, it wasn't free, you spent a lot of time in it that you could have spent doing other more fun or productive things.

    ... That doesn't help, does it?

    @Nightshade I know, but there are a few people in the thread talking about how hard it is to find a coder. It's like someone saying "Hey, I need to buy fresh apples. Anyone selling some?" and someone else responding "It's so hard to buy fresh oranges this time of year."

    Yeah, it's annoying. I thought the OP was clear on what they were looking for.

    @Nightshade I never responded to the OP. I responded to @Admiral.

    Never heard of builders being offered pay, since the supply of builders if much larger than coders.

    Damn, and I built our grid for free. :|

    This, this right here, what I'm giving you right now, it my glaring face. I just completely re-coded +shift for you for free. Okay, I'm mostly kidding in my glare. Mostly.

    I really should charge for the data entry, tho. I love to code, but data entry for some strange reason makes me tense, which over time makes me nauseous. I think it's because I don't focus my eyes as tightly as others can (c.f. my war against ansi), but any time I have to turn a large amount of numbers from an RPG book (say, feral forms or something), I know that I want to do almost anything else. Insert something funny but also kind of disturbing here.



  • @Thenomain For whatever it's worth, if there's a template of sorts for something like that (basically, 'format the data from this resource like so'), I actually don't mind data entry, and you can poke at will with what resource needs to go into what format.

    It's boring but it's boring in that mindless meditative way for me, and while I'm not working on anything these days, you've helped me out one hell of a lot when I have been, so it'd be the least I could do.

    They should be back soon to help. <3 <3 <3 Thank you for hanging in there in the meantime.

    Heart attacks suck.

    Edit: i'd be fine with punting you some $$$ next month actually. Right now we're having to raise $2200 in 10 days to unexpectedly move to a better place because mold (pipe backed up, I had to shovel slime out of the middle of the house). Bonus: directly behind the strip, gated community.
