    Hey guys...

    Posting in "Off-Topic" cause i am not really sure where this form of solicitation should really go.

    Basically I am looking for several people who may have different skill sets in areas I may be lacking in, I am willing to give anyone a chance to prove themselves so please don't be shy if you feel like you may be able to contribute then please do get in touch with me. (my contact details are below).

    I am looking to launch my project "Expert Pixels" ASAP.. What is my project about / offering ?

    Site features: (for now, more features coming and also open o suggestions / ideas)

    - Free & Premium Designs for a range of different platforms (Main focus will be XF Styles tho)
    - Webmaster forums
    - Guides and Tutorials for all web-related stuff
    - Webmaster Tools
    - Open Marketplace for other members to sell there designs / PSD's / Icons / Graphics etc etc
    - Many Many Many more features to come

    Really trying to create a "Authority" site, a Site that is known for being of excellent help / offers nothing but the best designs.. A project I can be proud to put my name to.. Ive finally learned that you can't always run projects on your own especially larger projects like what i have planned for expertpixels.com

    My Contact Details:

    Regards, Darren

    It's a tough market. There's many websites doing all this but only a few doing it well.

    No offence but from the way your post is written it looks like all you want to do is host a website whilst others do the work?

    Good luck however.

    DUDE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You got me all wrong so very very wrong !!!!!!!!!

    I hate people like that... I work my arse of.. Hands on.. do my own coding / designing etc etc... People who think they can throw money to people to do their work / ideas are setting themselves up to fail !!!!!!

    I am looking to build an Authority Site that is all... I want the best of the best working with me not for me lol.

    As for a "Tough Market" My designs speak for themselves and i also bring a very strong SEO background to any project i am involved with.. Ive had some of the best theme / skins sites going around for many different platforms in the past and always had a top 1-5 ranking in Google... Due to a operation on my stomach a while back i had to basically sell up all my projects just to pay the medical bills... Now my health is almost back to 100% I am back to being a 24/7 webmaster..

    Sorry not being nasty... but you saying: "looks like all you want to do is host a website whilst others do the work?" could not be more incorrect if you tried !!!!

    I simply am trying to establish a SOLID TEAM to work along side of me !!!

    Don't have time to digg up all my examples lol: http://i.imgur.com/R0j7p4S.png <-- that was my first crack at a xf style a few days after xf came out.. i slapped that together in less than a day

    Sorry to hear about the stomach and the selling of sites. I hope you are feeling much better.

    People just require more information I suppose before they commit to something. You've shown an example now so that should get the ball rolling for you.

    Please understand I do hope you succeed. My post was not meant to be insulting or derogatory in any way.

    Good luck.

    Yeah i understand.. this day and age you post your full intentions and someone with money to throw around will copy your idea and beat you to it.. So i can only post so much.. hope for some replies / PM's from interested / like-minded people and then suss them out a little before taking things any further.

    Thanks for the well wishes regarding my stomach it's all good now... Just trying to play catch up now that's all.. and slowly learning that some projects do require help from others / join ventures in order to become successful.. I had a VB4 website that was for free & premium designs i put a similar post up like my OP and only got a few replies.. But one person was in the same boat as me we were both new to the premium design game and had he not helped out i may of thrown in the towel.. He is now by far the best XF designer on XF and i owe him big time for taking a chance on me years ago.

    "You've shown an example now so that should get the ball rolling for you."

    LOL that was less than a days work.. I will have to dig up some real examples another day.. that example will drive people away if anything lol.

    EDIT: the guy i am referring to is the guy who designed your XF / Talk Geek site lol

    Would you mind displaying some of your works from the past? Curious to see if i've ever seen any of your designs.

    Your domain name sounds familiar to me.

    No. By your description you want us to upload stuff. We can do that anywhere. Make it special.

    Ive not asked you to upload a thing ?

    I'm fairly sure you're mistaken.

    I think he's looking for people to collaborate on style designs, etc with him. It doesn't sound like he's planning on a vborg-type site.

    I however asked you to upload some of your works (screenshot/previews) not sure whether my post got overlooked. Would like to see some of your designs as I'm sure anyone else thinking of joining your business would do to. :)

    If your expertise is in style design I really think there's a lack of good styling tutorials/guides at present that you might be able to address. I realise some of it is an "art" but even just things like tutorials on your workflow when creating styles would help a lot of people out and prove to be very useful resources :)

    God.. I really need to spend a day digging up my better ones :( Sorry Shelly that's all ya getting for now lol

    Apologies for my impatience if i come across that way. Anyway, some really good designs there and you seem very talented and implement good colour usage in your works. looking forward in seeing what xf designs and whether some of those designs will be converted over but I'm sure they will be very popular and in demand. Very nice work. :)

    TY... no conversions sorry those examples are rubbish !! my design skills have come a long way since them ones, and i prefer forum work anyone can slap a wp theme together days specially if the use my wp theme framework.. My best work is yet to come.. my health is back I just need some custom jobs now to cover some Premium scripts (VB / IPB / XF / etc) for EP and also help fund a real server for EP.. so sadly until i can afford a high end VPS or Dedicated server expertpixels.com may not be launched for a good month :(

    TY again tho.. XF will be my main focus tho once i get my store-front in. :)

    My comments are related because I'm giving you advice on protecting your intellectual property. How are you going to tell which users will be pirating your styles?
