in reply to Special paid section for 'write me a program' posts
It sounds interesting in theory, but I think that sort of thing is best suited to a dedicated site (someone else mentioned jobs.perl.org, if I remember right)
This idea did trigger a thought of my own. I'm the sort of person who loves to code and solve problems, but I'm useless at thinking up ideas of my own. How about a section where people suggest ideas of things they would like to see coded? It might also help inspire people as they would see different ways people approach the same problem/goal.
