A little information before you make a request

*I would appreciate it, if some MOD can make this thread sticky, because of its importance*

Dear users,

so you decided to get a paid MOD? Well i receive about 5 PM's per days for payed MODs. I'am sure other users receive more.
Well, i'am writing this thread to make my answers easier for 80% of the MOD requests i receive daily.

I don't know how much of you know anything about PHP, HTML, Linux etc. But it seems, that most of the users have really no clue what coding is.
"I have an easy request" , "I assume it wouldn't take too much time", "I know it sounds easy" - are just 3 examples of "starting lines" in some of my unanswered PM's.

Well, first i answered them with a price, or with a request for more information in order to calculate the price. And i hear every time (well, most of the time) the same answer.
"Dude, thats not really cheap", "What, are you crazy" or "More that 50$ for a MOD, are you crazy??" - One of my favorites ;)

Now you have to think that i'am charging too much? No, 15 - 20$ per hour (depending on the time i have), feel free to ask any other pogramer if he work's for less - it's a standard price (well, in Bulgaria they actually give you just 5$ per hour, but that's a different story).

What i'am trying to do with this thread is to ask you to keep these things in mind before you make any request to any user:

- custom modding is PAYED - nothing big comes for free
- "payed" means 30$ and above - "i can link back to your site" doesn't work!
- be sure that you have enough money before you make an request
- know exactly what you want or what you expect

Follow these simple rules and you have no problem. It is really very annoying for us every time to ask the same questions or answer to questions why the request isn't 30$ but 130$.
We're no "n00b's", we also have wifes (maybe children), we drink, we eat and we behave human. Don't think we're all machines that work for free or spend the night in installing 25 mod's on a Portuguese website for 10 bucks (!)

Thank you
George 

PS: Requests for HELP are always free. I have no problem in helping users. But custom modding is something else.
EDIT: Changed my price per hour

I am no special programmer, but I do agree 110%!

The cost for basic web design, not php coding (to work with other programs) are averaged around $50 per hour. PHP is averaged around $75 per hour. Those are fee's from my area from local businesses / web programmers.
So what you offer to me is beyond cheap and almost free  :!: :!: :!:

75$ per hour? Wow, if that was my charge i would be a millioner right now :D
