in reply to Job/Project Postings

I'd be in support of such an idea, but only if it were explicitly stated that these positions are to be basically volunteer work (not for-hire.) I don't especially want to see HR departments spamming for new employees here. On the other hand, this would be extemely nice for people working on small but growing projects who want to get other people involved to help in development.

    Yah I've been thinking about this a little more, and looking at past comments, and I'm starting to shy away now from a generic job posting service, precisely for the reasons you mention. However, listing a specific project and getting one or more people on board to help with that project (a one-time deal, basically), seems a little more appealing. And I am talking about for-hire stuff here. Would you have objections to that with this model as well?
      It seems to me that there are already plenty of places out there where you can post job offerings... the only difference I see in opening up PM to such drivel is that a posting on PM is free, whereas other sites may charge the poster for either the job listing itself or a completed "transaction" in the form of a hire. Seems that'd be the #1 way to divert unneeded spamming to our beloved halls. I would be okay with it if we made it such that only experienced monks (at least level 3+, I'd prefer 5) could actually post for jobs.

    In that case, I would shoot for open source perl stuffs- sort of a mini-sourceforge here would be ultra cool.
    AgentM Systems nor Nasca Enterprises nor Bone::Easy nor Macperl is responsible for the comments made by AgentM. Remember, you can build any logical system with NOR.
      I'm wondering if something like that might be pushing the limits with respects to the number of "code" sections. We have Craft, Code and Snippets already.

      Though I think it would be cool to have a section that would allow people to collaborate on a project or a piece of code. That would be nifty.
