I'm looking for coders to join up with my partner and I on a online massively multiplayer game project.

we're well into things now. we've been pretty much operating under one coder (my partner) but now we are seeking out a new coder (or a few new coders) to join our team to speed things up a bit.

Some technical information about our game:
The scripting engine will be done with Flex/Bison (the lexer/parse part at leaat)
we are using SDL for graphics
and wxWidgets for GUI (for multiplatform)

We are a freelance project now, though. so know that.

if you are interested, you can contact me on aim:
or email:

Why is it that almost everyone that is looking for team members nowadays come up with the lame excuse that "i'm switching host" or whatever... If you don't have a website right now, then DON'T POST UNTIL YOU DO.

I have a website. But it's down now. It's not a lame excuse? If you want to see for yourself goto and lookup

I canceled it Dec. 18th and theres a 30 day 'grace' period.

And most people ask, "do you have a website with more information?" so I answered the question ahead of time. What's wrong with that.

What's wrong is that it's disingenuous (if not dishonest) to say you have a website when it cannot be accessed by anyone but yourself. The fact that you have a domain name registered does not prove that you have a website either.
Also, if your website is devoid of useful information about the current progress of the project, it is useless.

where are you getting that my website is any of this?

im merely saying that i DO have one.. but i wont be able to put it back up for another week. i've never met a group of pessimistic individuals before in my life.

You've got to understand that this forum gets posts like yours all the time. Everyone and his dog wants coders to help with their freelance MMORPG project, and none of them has a publicly accessible website, either. And 99% of the time their projects never come to anything. So forgive us if we don't fall over each other in haste to join your team, but we currently have no reason to believe you are any different from these other newbs.

I wonder if it would be a lot of overhead to add code to this board that checks whether, within the first 5 posts a person makes, the message has the keyword "mmorpg" or "unpaid" or some such, and then, instead of posting the message, would give a nice, informative page which explains what you just said, with several links to helpful mmorpg articles (like the ones I posted). =)
