In response to the reactions in this thread, I was wondering.
Why is it such a shame to ask for help on a new project? Or just to ask whether there are some programmers with spare time left ready to help out prior to starting off a new project?
It’s probably really cool to give “dumb” ratings (as this post will most probably get soon enough) to people making requests, but at least the person in the mentioned thread didn’t go like “OMG I HAVE A COOL IDEA, SUM1 WANNA HELP ME OUT!??”. Now that would be dumb.
Just some thoughts from an old '05er.
