This thread ..I copied the link without allowing for the WebmasterWorld redirect the first time ..
I agree with wheel ..
Any developer "worth their salt" ( btw that "expression" derives from "worth a salary" ..or "worth paying" and originates from the latin "Roman soldiers received an allowance of salt, which was called a salarium-- a "salary." A good soldier had to be "worth his salt." ) has already heard offers like yours a great many times ..
it amounts to ..
"you should work for free now ..to make my dreams come true later ..I'm a marketer"
A genuinely good marketer has already made enough money marketing ( whatever they market ..a good marketer can sell ice cream to Inuit ) to pay a developer..up front..
Just like they'd have to pay a builder to build the "wonderhouse" that they are sure they could sell for a profit..
Marketeers are a dime a dozen ..especially here..there are few good ones though ..but all of them are convinced that they are ..
Good programmers or developers are rare..we are fortunate to have those that do contribute and solve peoples code problems etc ..for no pay..
