I'm sorry to have to be the one to do this and no doubt I will be reprimanded for it but these forums need to be better moderated in the interest of protecting genuine freelance artists.
The FT/PT and freelance boards are a joke filled with "Studios" purporting to offer paid work when the reality is they are nothing more than hobbyists looking for Artists to work for close to free or at exploitive rates at best.
In my opinion, it needs to be a requirement for employers to post pertinent information such as duration of work and rates from the get go. Professional artists who rely on work to pay the bills have a right know up front whether contracts/work (do you even offer a contract?) are viable.
If you are looking for free or post launch compensated work then post in the appropriate forums. Just because you are willing to pay the equivalent of £1 per hour (yes I've actually ended up working at this rate more than once) shouldn't mean that you have the right to post in the looking for work forums whether it be FT/PT or freelance.
It merely serves to reinforce the low value already placed on Artists by the Industry. It needs to stop Polycount.
