Web design ads = grrrr.

Maybe this isn't the appropriate venue to bring this up, but it's really annoying to see all these "web designers" popping up, with a listing of features they offer, and price listings from the hundreds to thousands of dollars. (Invictus, you can ignore this )

But I've yet to see a single portfolio showing previous projects. Before anyone starts talking about being able to design sites worth more than a thousand bucks, they better have something to show they can do it.

Especially since I've only seen a couple of "professional" quality sites that would rate that kind of payment. And one of them was done by a member of the breeder's family.

Before you commit to a design or features for a set price, run it by someone who is familiar with site design or tools. Heck, if you pop by the sSnakeSs chat, I'll help you figure out what you'll need for free.

And no, I'm not a site designer, nor will I design your site for you. But I'm familiar with design, tools, scripting, and administration, and can help you figure out if you really need the bells, whistles, or even garbage that you may be paying for.

And if I save you from spending some money that you didn't have to spend, donate a bit of it to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation or another charity.

lol... I don't mind a little healthy competition. Interestingly enough though, I've got 8 contracts right now, and I've never posted an ad for my web design services..... I depend on word of mouth, which is much more powerful.

My only client is leaving me for a flash web designer that will host in the states.

Yah, I suck. yet, I still offer the works. The market is saturated right now, web is turning into old news. Big frikkin deal, it's just the internet. Soon well have something new like a room in your house like the hollo deck you can shop in. The the product comes to your door by mail. Ultimate time saver, and fun cause you could make that room into anything.
Only the rich people will be able to afford it at first. Give it 10 years, and everyong will have their own reason not to leave home.

The web is turning into old news because there are too many web "developers" out there, and not enough web ARTISTS.
