    Since a number of people wanted clarification on stuff, I'll attempt to do some clarification in this, along with a little of my experience, so that you can make a decision on what you are interested in. :)

    First and foremost, I generally don't have issues with genres of sites, as I tend to be well enough versed to know when I need to look something up if I am in need of information on something. But for those who would rather have my likes and dislikes, instead of working with me to make sure I am well enough off with a particular subject, following are some of my liked, hated and indifferent genres.

    Liked Genres:
    Off-Topic/General, Music, Anime, General Entertainment, Board Games, Computer Games, Reading, Astronomy, Online Games, Webmaster, Promotional
    Indifferent Genres: Console Games, Role-Playing, Special Needs Forums (All), Sports, Cartoons, Web Hosting, Arts and Crafts, Outdoor Recreational Sports, Tech, Art, Coding, Business Related
    Hated Genres: Fan Forums

    If your genre is not listed above, I probably don't have an opinion. Anything on the liked or indifferent list, I am willing to work with. If you want clarification on whether or not I'll work on your forum, just send me a link privately.

    BTW, for those who viewed my last thread and not this one yet, I have lowered the prices on the lower costing positions, and added a monthly rate, instead of a 6 month minimum amount.

    The admin part time spot went down in price to $90. The Mod and Mod TL part time spots are still the same monthly prices of $50 and $70 USD.

    I have modified and updated the part time admin costs to include the following line, instead of what it said before:
    • IF work time expectations are consistently 30 hours or more, expect to pay more, or to negotiate on a monthly salary.
    This way you can pay for my time on having a regular administrator who will visit on a regular basis, without having to worry about over paying unless agreed upon.
