Member feedback regarding "help wanted"

Fellow members, the mods and admins have been discussing a "help wanted" type section. We have all seen a quite a few "drive by posters" throwing out looking for contractor ads. The mods and admins have been discussing rules and ettiquette to allow this, make it valuable while trying to not to ruffle a bunch of feathers.

One of the criteria being considered is requiring a minimum post count before "help wanted" ads would be allowed. This should help weed out the one and done posters.

Lets use this thread as a way for you to provide feedback on how you would like to see this implemented. Keep in mind, it may not be possible to accomodate all the requests, but we do value your feedback.

Good points but we'll never see a recruiter post 15 times before posting an ad, and the second one won't fly with them either.

Keep the ideas coming.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

I think if you want the help wanted that is good. I also say that if they post for help wanted after reading the rules anywhere but there they should post they should be banned. And have their post removed. And put on a list for scumbags. (or something to that affect )

Just create the sub forum, and let em post/recruit away. At the end of the day, you are all business owners and YOU are on the hook for making the proper business decision. Some people can make a $20 GC work, some can't.

In either case, there are far too many seasoned and educated people among this forum that any sort of "shady" practices will be sniffed out in a flash.

Aren't "help wanted" adds for employers looking for employees? Should be called "services needed" or something along those lines. I like the idea of a sub-forum and let it fly!!!

I knew it wouldn't be long until some one went the spectator sport route.
