Good tips, I wish I had read them before a member here ripped me off for $150.

again thanks for the tips, they make sense and I will bookmark this one.

good post...
maybe you could list "certified" programmers that you know can do the job... you get people like me who would hire someone from here if we knew they were credible.

If someone won't give a phone number and address, they better not expect to be paid anything up front...you make yourself out to be a total stranger.

Also, I wish there was some sort of itrader, reputation/feedback system here on VB...would save a lot of people from being ripped off.

You have people like my last coder, who apparently likes alcohol (according to his myspace) which would explain why he can do a job once, then freak out for no reason and disappear with your money on the next. Later Mr CompleteGfx.com was banned from VB. We buyers can HELP each other, but there is no way to really communicate about programmers.

Same way, I know there are programmers who have been burned by BUYERS...I understand vb wanting to be neutral, but peer-to-peer feedback would be SOOOO helpful to the entire community.

Easy tip. Pay with paypal and say pay for a "good" not a "service". If they rip you off request a tracking number for shipment and they obviously wont be able to provide one and paypal will give your money back. Works every time.

OR pay with a credit card and if you get screwed over contact your credit card provider and report them as fraudulent and they will take your money back.

Ohh and NEVER pay upfront. Why would you? Always someone willing to do it first OR for larger jobs pay in increments and you see progress being made.

Most online financial systems are there to benefit buyers not sellers and if you know how it all works its easy to be safe. I order everything online and I have a stack of broken iPods and outdated nutrition products that were all free because people tried to rip me off and messed with the wrong person =]

Would i be allowed to link to it (its not my site, nor will i get any referal bonus for anyone who choses to look into it)

I'm interested in seeing this site.

As a new member here, I'd like to know if there are any success stories to learn and benefit from.

Other than the "Request for Paid service" forum, are there any other places to screen programmers/coders?

Are there any companies in the US that you have had good experience with vB development on your sites?

Any directions would be greatly appreciated.

Can someone direct me to a qualified programmer to do full vbulletin community development?

Must be qualified and professional to deal with on a good sized project.

If you find this golden goose, please share. I've needed this for a decade.

I think we have just become a victim of this very post. We are trying desperately to find someone to complete our site. Anyone interested or know somebody? Really appreciate any/all feedback.

Thank you

Thank you

Your best bet would be to post in the paid requests section, http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=30

Describe what it is you are looking to have done, so potential hires know what is needed.
