All threads in which someone is looking for people to join a team, from now on, are required to contain all of the following three pieces of information:
- 1) An overview of the project, or a link to an overview. Recruitment threads that are not created for a specific project but generally for a company or organization of sorts ("headhunting threads") will no longer be allowed in this forum.
2) A description of what sort of work needs to be done, for example "Need a character artist" or "Need a script writer". For commissions, we strongly suggest giving an estimate of how much of that work will be necessary. (Examples: "Four character sprites in 4-5 poses each" or "A dialogue script of approximately 60,000 words")
3) A description of what work has been completed on the project, if any.
- "We are a Free Project looking for Partners" if your project is strictly non-commercial and contributors cannot expect any sort of financial compensation
- "We are a Commercial Project looking for Partners" if you are planning to sell the results of your projects afterwards and contributors will receive a share of the revenue
- "We are offering Paid Work" if, no matter whether your project is commercial or not, you are willing to offer people money in exchange for working for you and the exact sum of money will be decided before they start working.
Also, effective today, there will be a new general rule of conduct for the entire LSF, which is thus relevant for the Recruitment section. This rule is:
14.) Public Discussion.
The Lemma Soft Forums are meant for public discussion. Threads that direct replies to PMs or Email may be deleted.
