Detailed Project Description
Your project description should be as detailed as possible. It's better to have too much information than too little. Some
people choose to summarize the project in the project description, and attach a file with more detailed info. Which is a good idea.
If you have additional features you would like in your script, which you did not mention in the project description, please
tell the programmer BEFORE they begin work.
Before you pay for the script, you should ask the programmer to setup a demo (on their server) to make sure it functions as
you requested. Once the programmer sends you the script it could be too late to cancel the project, and you will be expected
to pay for their service.
Before the work begins, you should discuss with the programmer how you will send payment.
Know The Project
You should know how you will create the script before you connect online. If you need more details, post on the message
board for that project, request more information from the webmaster. If you don't, at least make sure you are clear about
the project before you begin working on it.
You might consider updating the webmaster on your progress throughout your work, especially if it's a long project. This
will assure that there is no confusion over how the script is suppose to be when you finish it.
Before sending the script to the webmaster, you should setup a demo (on your server) so that they can confirm it is what
they wanted done. You are almost guaranteed satisfaction if you do this, because the webmaster can see the script working
before they receive it and pay.
Before the work begins, you should discuss with the webmaster how you want them to send your payment later on.
