Flash_Cart, you’re great. That really did make me laugh out loud.

Thanks for responding everyone and for your support. The person in question actually did send me the money this afternoon. So maybe you’re all giving good karma. At any rate, I’m not sure why he still hasn’t communicated anything or what his reasons were, but a paid invoice means that there’s potential for me being willing to do any future work. It’s always better not to have a burned bridge.

I did a very small job for a prominent social marketer whose job is to speak at conferences on LinkedIn networking. He came to me in a panic about fixing his website css in time for an influx of visitors. Well, I did an hour of work, fixed his site, he promised to pay and (you can guess)...dropped of the planet. I invoiced him and emailed and he won’t reply.

My question is this: since he’s dishonest, should I

1. let other people know so they don’t waste their time with this guy? Isn’t that what LinkedIn recommendations are for? To let people know what it’s like to work for/with someone?

2. He’s got 20,000 Twitter followers, should I call him out on Twitter?

3. Or should I tell him that I’ll accept a recommendation from him in lieu of payment?

4. Or should I forget it altogether?

What advice do you have?

How about more readable text colors with more contrast from the background.

I find the Welcome text on the homepage so low contrast that I couldn’t even see that there was any text at all. I wondered why there were links scattered randomly across the div until I realize that there was a whole paragraph of text there that I couldn’t see and the links were just part of the text. It’s really really bad when you can’t even see that there are any words there at all. I have a window by my monitor with sun coming in, so that’s part of it, but wow. That’s pretty low contrast. Must be a nightmare for anyone with bad vision.

Hi. I just wish that that fixed/liquid were in the stats displayed in the right sidebar.

THanks!

Hi there—I worked on an app called SyndicateUs.org that provides this functionality. Have a look at http://syndicateus.org/suIdeas/IdeaHome.php.
