It's a simple precept: one-off jobs for PAY in Creative gigs. Free, barter, deferred pay projects in the artists' community section. When I look for WORK, I can go through the Creative gigs without wasting time because there are other job lists to go through as well. If I want to do FREE work with my unlimited creativity, I can go to the artists' community section.
That's why I'm here and expounding on my experience as a professional artist that will hopefully send the bottom-feeders skulking back to their holes while enlightening others who may have been innocently or purposefully oblivious to good information.
I still get paid for creating art. But I do so enjoy helping the professionals separate themselves out from the self-aggrandizing bottom-feeders.
