They were my best bud until the work was done and then I could not even get them to respond to any correspondence. So needless to say, I tend to shy away from anyone on this site asking for help or for any work to be done.

For some reason, most just don't realize the amount of time and effort that goes into creating something like this..
That's also true.

If somebody accepted my deal to do a custom job, I will refer them to other vbulletin coders who I have done business with.
The more times you do business, the more trusted of a buyer/seller you become.
If they've never done business with anybody yet, then perhaps take a look at their post count/ see how much contribution they've done/how active they are in the community.

Before allowing anybody else to start doing the work I request, I first negotiate a minimum price. Whether or not I pay extra is up to me. However if I ask for extra suggestions mid way, then it's only fair that I pay more especially if they ask. If I refuse, they do not need to do any extra suggestions.

In any case, if somebody requests to do a job and you do it, but they no longer respond. You should probably sell that product on your website. Link to it in your signature, that you're selling mods on your website.
As the product developer, you should never release the product/give the buyer the product before receiving some (if not all) of the payment.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I've been cheated out of $650 on here before by an "ex computer programmer" from the 80's who had retired (was in his 70's) and he refused to pay after I told him that I would not take out all the {session} variables from his templates else it would break his site. I was fired because someone was uneducated and then they refused to pay and I was the one providing services not receiving them and despite only letting down one client, ever, I admit to it instead of hiding it.

Moral of the story? It does not matter who you are or where, this can happen in all walks of life and can also be a two-way street. I would highly recommend checking their profile, references, and other before even considering hiring them... I also advised someone not long ago to give any new coder something small at first, test out the "waters" basically as it were to ensure it will be a mutually beneficial relationship that stands the test of time instead of morals, ethics, or patience for that matter.

Okay now its time for a movie with the wife, I've been procrastinating because I feel like its going to be a chick-flick tonight and all I want to see are guns, bullets, martial arts and/or some humor! RAWR!

Bottom line is the site nor staff get involved in disputes/transactions between members.
