Guide and template for "Modding Help Offered" adverts

We want to summarize all SHS Classifieds in a convenient Index. The summary of your advert in this Index will link back to your post. That is where members will be able to read all the details of your offer. To make it easier for us to keep the Index up to date and accurate, please set out your advert in the following way, which you may use as a template:

Posted by: Your SHS username OR the username of your team leader/contact person if you are posting on behalf of a team (for example, an art group).

Date posted: We can take the date from your post, but you may insert it anyway!

Help offered: Please keep this as brief as possible – just the type of help you're offering. For example: Writing dialogues; Artwork; Coding; etc.

Details: As much detail as you like! These details won't appear in the Index, which will link back to your post. In general it is better to provide too much detail rather than too little. Here's what you may want to include:
  • The skills you have to offer, your experience in using these skills, any mods with which you may have assisted, who may collaborate with you (for example, in an art group), links to web pages where examples of your work may be seen, etc.
  • How much time you can spend on any requested work, and any dates when you may not be available during the project.
  • Any particular types of mods that specially interest you.
Please tell us by post or PM if:
  • You have become so busy helping with mods that you are currently unavailable for new work.
  • You no longer want to assist with any mods (you DON'T have to give any reasons).

Help offered: Artwork

Details: I am a graphic artist and experienced in the use of Photoshop. I know nothing about modding and coding but I have supplied artwork to a few modders. This work includes the special items (wand, mace, helm) for the SuperLiam NPC mod and the portrait, paper doll, etc for the MightySeb NPC.

I live in Mexico and I am free most evenings to work on designs because that's my hobby. You can see some of my other art on my Facebook page at {URL}. Please note I will be away for two weeks at the end of November.
I did battle with monsters, and they became me, and when I gazed into the abyss, the abyss looked away shyly.
See, it helps not to believe all the stuff that philosophers spout.
