Please you don’t want US to waste YOUR time!!?
Forgive me for being blunt and to the point but that is the most idiotic statement one can make in this ad!
Think about it –
You want someone who is “skilled and knowledgeable in ALL forms of web design and page layout, HTML,flash, etc.” but you are offering them AT THE MOST $5per hour!! Now I am a web developer but I can do math:
$100 per week, MINUMUM of 4 hours per day….let’s see that’s 20 hours per week (if you don’t include weekends-and I’m being nice because I bet you would call me Saturday AND Sunday too!)..Hmmmm, yea $100 divided by 20 gives me a whopping average of $5 an hour!!!! YEE-HAW!!!
As you can see I’m busting at the seams wanting to work with buddy! I am just dying to take my skills, my training, my knowledge and give it to you for less than minimum wage!

I hope every TRUE developer reads this and decides that projects like this are just raping us. Whether people like this intentionally demean us or they are just truly this ignorant, answering ads like this “begging” for work is hurting the industry as a whole.
And finally, to the person who posted this ad, you will get someone, but think about it – for $5 an hour what do you REALLY expect? You shouldn’t even expect a talented McDonald’s cook (since minimum wage is over what, $7hr?).
Oh, and I understand you are a non-profit, but here in the real world we have bills to pay and we eat food that cost money (unless I work my shift at McDonald’s and get my free shift meal)
