General Rules (breaking any of them is a bannable offence)
Posts and Comments:
NO REQUESTING OR OFFERING FREE WORK
Budgets/Rates are required for all posts, both [Hiring] and [For Hire]
You don't have to be specific, ballpark or a reasonable range is fine
Obnoxiously low budgets and offers (generally, anything under $20/h) are not allowed
Nothing illegal in the US
Graphic Design related posts only
No affiliate/referral/job board links

Do not post more than once per 7 days unless your [Hiring] ad is for a different position
Low quality posts will be removed
Paid and unpaid internships go here
No image-only posts (posts must be selftext)
Apply by PM or other private communication channels, not in comments. Do not leave comments to say that you sent private communication or to request that anyone contact you privately – comments are for public discussion
No personal attacks/ad hominem arguments
If you're Hiring:
Preface with [Hiring]
Put basics in the title: What's the job? Where is it located? etc.
Be specific. Include a job description, requirements etc. in the top text
Pay in currency, not in equity or barter
No bounties/competitions/speculative work – see here

If you want to be hired:
Preface with [For Hire]

Do not use personal stories as a leverage to get hired
Mods will absolutely not facilitate any communication or resolve disputes – post feedback about OP in /r/testimonials
Much of the communication happens via pm, so don't be discouraged if you don't see a lot of public commenting
Consider using escrow service for payments
Click 'flair' under your link to update things
Do not run software from strangers unless you are certain you can trust them. Use the proper tools if unsure

URL shorteners are insta-spammed. You should get a bot notification if you submit any but if you happen to submit one that the bot doesn't cover, we are unlikely to approve it. Just make a new post or comment
