    Besides freelance marketplace also product marketplace?

    I am missing a product marketplace, where designers can sell their designs. I know this is very popular here in The Netherlands, so why not here ...

    I know many people that buy and sell their designs (custom or not) online with great succes. Here we also have many design contests, where multiple designers enter and where the best one wins quite the nice amount of euro's. Perhaps an idea over here at WM?

    I also think numerous subforums are being misused or mistreated (i.e. iphone ads, work-at-home-ads....)...not all that much webmaster related...

    Cheers!

    That's a good idea. I'm sure WMM have done it for a tee shirt design in the past - haven't they?

    Besides the iphone and free money 'contributions', there are the occasional designers announcing their services and galleries - but the forum rules means they can't post links unless they spam first.

    I have a couple of projects that I was thinking of offering a prize for designs for, but the time I'm taking to get them 'ready' continues to surprise me... It would be great if there was something already setup at WMM. I suspect, to be fair, that it'll take a few people spending money fairly regularly to get the ball rolling.

    What size of prizes would be necessary to induce designers to submit artwork? I hope I haven't missed the point and you meant something other than artwork! In my case, I would be looking for logos for some web-based projects.

    Yes, as for design contests; this usually involves artwork yes. I know it's sometimes not that rewarding (you work your ass off as a designer, only to become 2nd and perhaps miss out...), but it's also a method to do portfolio building...that's where everybody starts, but now with possible payment if you win the contest...

    About a product marketplace, here we have section named 'work available' where peeps start threads when they have a small job, or when they offer their services....these jobs vary from design to php, sql, flash, seo etcetc, so everything that involves webmasters...

    Perhaps the forum is indeed not yet that active when looking at these jobs or contests... I will arrive in M'sia within a couple of weeks...I will probably post some small job requests...

    Cheers!

    I get the impression this isn't really picked up as it should be
