About the Commercial and Collaborative Work category


#1

Welcome to the Commercial and Collaborative Work Category!

Shoutout to the Unity3D folks and their Forum for the great idea and for some of the language below.

What is the Commercial and Collaborative Work Category for?

The aims of this Category, is to enable people to find others to work with them on non-commercial (collaborative) or commercial projects. This includes:

  • if you have a project in progress, but you need assistance
  • if you have an idea, and you’re looking to recruit someone
  • if you have skills that you’re willing to offer to the community
  • if you’re looking to gain experience in an area and wish to join a project to help you develop those skill
  • if you want to collaborate with someone
  • if you want to hire for an opportunity, or share a SketchUp related opportunity

SketchUp related requests ONLY! This is for the community, by the community.

Thread guidelines

Please make sure your thread is well-written and clear, and doesn’t go against the Community Guidelines.
There are basically two common types of threads.


Type 1: If you have a project/idea, and are looking for people to join or contribute

  • DO summarise the type of project and a rough outline of what it’s all about.
  • DO explain who you’re looking for - List what skills you’re looking to add to the project. If it’s simple, add it to the title too.
  • DO introduce yourself - state what you yourself are bringing to the project, and your skills, and summarise your experience. (Bonus points if you also introduce yourself on our main introduce yourself thread)
  • DO put lots of info in your forum post title. This will help draw in the right people and provide good preliminary information.
  • DO attach screenshots or videos, if you have them, and link to relevant demos, websites, portfolios. Even if you have those things on your site, it’s best to embed a couple in your post to make it more eye catching.
  • Make it clear what type of arrangement you are seeking: i.e. paid, collaborative, commercial…etc.
  • DON’T be secretive or very vague about the project - people won’t bother contacting you to ask for more information, they’ll just move on to the next project.
  • DON’T expect people to be very interested in volunteering to work with you if all you bring to the project is the initial idea - ideas are like eyeballs, almost everyone’s got at least two of their own.
  • DON’T waffle on about your idea with a wall of text - that is going to drive people away.
  • DON’T come and post your project here if you’ve done no substantive work on it yet but you should at least demonstrate that you’re as willing to put time into your project as you’re asking other people to.
  • DON’T be highly demanding and pushy and expect a lot of responses. If you need urgent help, high-quality work, etc, then most people will expect you to pay for it.

Type 2: If you have skills you are offering to others

  • DO summarise the skills you are offering, or the areas you are trying to improve
  • DO attach screenshots or videos of your past work, if you have them, and link to relevant demos, websites, portfolios.
  • DO introduce yourself - your skills, and summarise your experience. (Bonus points if you also introduce yourself on our main introduce yourself thread)
  • DO put lots of info in your forum post title. This will help draw in the right people and provide good preliminary information.
  • DON’T misrepresent your abilities or past work - you’ll get found out once people start talking to you anyway, all you’ll end up doing is wasting their time and yours.

And generally:

  • DO provide contact details, please get in touch by Private Messaging and allow people to contact you via PM
  • DON’T feel the need to publish your age, or personal details
  • I have the right to remove any solicitations for any purpose at any time
  • Stay on topic – If you want to change the subject, start a new thread.
  • Add relevant thread titles
  • Good spelling and grammar – Not everyone is a native English speaker and may not understand colloquial jargon.

Notice:

  • Please note that if an offense is severe enough you may be permanently banned without warning.
  • All moderator decisions are final.
  • We will not delete posts unless they are spam, abusive or threatening.
  • These rules are subject to change or amendment.
