    Ok...

    You might find someone willing to do that. I do freelance, but I have clients that are established. They know what my set rates are, and always pay the invoices fully and without question. There is a huge amount of trust that comes with this freelance/client relationship. I know I've hit the sweet spot in the relationship when I think I'm getting the better deal, and my client thinks they're getting the better deal.

    I recommend you test someone by giving them a smaller scripting task and seeing how quickly it was done, the quality, and the communication. Pay that person in full, whatever was decided ahead of time, no matter if you were satisfied or not. If you didn't like the person, move on to the next one. Don't get into any pissing matches over a $50-100 dollar job. Start small and find the right match.

    Sweet. I'll hire you for $.60 an hour with a minimum of 2 hours paid per project. It doesn't matter if you only work half an hour or 500, I'll pay you for 2. That's a buck twenty, you know. You can get a 4 litre jug of water at some dollar stores in Chicago for a buck twenty and have change coming. That's a lot of water.

    We totally have a deal, right?

    As others have told you, and all joking aside, if you need help you have to pay for it. That doesn't mean "pay low", either...you pay say $3 / hour, you're going to get some twit who may know a few functions but has no idea how to actually develop something. You pay high, you still may not get what you want, but at least you stand a chance.

    Having looked at the site and what you have to say here, it sounds like you're a 20-something or possibly a teenager trying to play with adults. You're not ready yet.

    Awesome. I always wanted a jug of water, and what I'll do with the change, I have no idea. Shall I draw up the contract now?

    Totally. Make sure it's in crayon so it's legally binding.
