who uses to find gigs and perhaps to place 'em?

there is a lot of "humor" there, people asking for a lot of work at outrageously low rates. that's prompted some responses from people with parodies of RFQs. but there are also many small businesses looking for help.

how do you set your price?

how do you negotiate?

do you know any other places to find gigs?

i have tried several others that charge a fee to see their listings, or take a piece of your winnings and, in order to enforce that, demand there be no outside contact, including listing Web sites or e-mail addresses. in addition to failing to bring in work, these constraints have a chilling effect upon the entire transaction. the rates are low enough that noone needs that.

in addition, there are some folks who bid outrageously low in these places before they know the details of the job, either because they are practical jokers, or because they just want to hook clients and then charge them later to fix things.

surprisingly i have found that not to be such a problem at craigslist.
