Exclamation $100 for a REAL Coder

Want to get my hands on a real "Knows his stuff" Coder who can do ANYTHING tasked to him with no shortcuts!

I have 100$ willing to give to a coder who can turn my idea of a MUD into reality.
The codebase will be SMAUG. The money is yours, if you can produce the product
that I am asking for. You will need to be able to put time into this. This is for real.

$$$$$$$$$$$ 100 REAL $$$$$$$$$$$$

How many hours do you expect from the coder? If it's say 15 hours, that's only ~$7/hour.

Re: $100 for a REAL Coder

I'm not paying per hour, I am paying for the final product that can withstand an open beta test and final game opening. A lot of people don't pay the coders, but I am willing. And if they stay on once the game is up (And I hope they would be!) then we can talk continued financial payments. I am not opposed to actually paying my staff, after all they are a staff.

BUT the 100 initial is, again, for a codebase that does what I want, and ready for player review.

Re: $100 for a REAL Coder

I understand, but I'm still just wondering how many hours you expect from the coder? I think you need to have it scoped out beforehand or you won't get too many initial bites.

Re: $100 for a REAL Coder

I would be asking a few hours a day. 1-3. Maybe 10 hours a week max. I am a single father so I know that people have lives to do. But bottom line the money is there, all I ask is the coder earns it.

Re: $100 for a REAL Coder

A weekly amount is a bit weird since you're not paying hourly, but I was looking more for total hours.

Re: $100 for a REAL Coder

I can't give you a total hours. I am basically asking for a coder to come in, work with me, and make this game from a basic codebase. So I cannot say how many hours total that could take, really depends on the coder and his skills, no?

Talk with me on Yahoo or Skype and I can give you a better idea
