If you are offering a service, I recommend our Commission Board for you to post your offer, as well as checking here to see if anyone requires a service you provide.
If you have a better paying project, such as one with a set per-page price, we welcome you to write up a journal post about it, so that more people will see it. We only allow this to be done for proper "jobs", meaning there is compensation for the work being done. Please remember that artists/editors/writers/web designers/ graphic designers/ everyone here works hard on what they do, and so "free" work isn't to be expected. If you post an offering and no one applies, try seeing if you can alter your budget around, and check the Commission Board to see if anyone is willing to work within your price range.
Keep in mind, it is a good idea to contact multiple people as each one is offering different benefit/payments and have different needs. We're only providing their names and how to contact them, as well as any specific requests for auditions, but if you need more information, please contact us, as we have a list of what each person is seeking and can help you pick out the ones that fit your offering the best.
When you have found who you need contact us so we can remove you
If you wish to be added to this journal, look at the end of this post for information.
We are not asking that if you are able to offer certain benefits/payment, please at least put that you have some items to offer and want to work it out with the individual(s) involved
In the Menu, you can select what you are to see who has posted seeking your skill.
We have two new sections: Publicist and Graphic Artist. If you are a publicist, your interested in helping people advertise their work.
Graphic Artists create websites/banners/promotional material and may assist in finding hosting sources as well as places to get things made/printed. (You may not do everything, but if you do anything in that area, it's counted.)

How To Be Added
When posting here, realize it may take months to find someone, so it is beneficial to link back to this listing everywhere you can, so that yourself, and everyone else, has a better chance at being found.
Never underestimate the value of a contract. If you need help with one, contact Ravyn, as she has experience with them.
Be friendly and respectful, if a colorist is late, contact them right away, but do not be accusatory, be inquisitive instead, and polite. You do want this to be a professional relationship, especially if you are paying, but a friendly one is also beneficial to you both.
Exchange as much contact information with each other as you can. IM, email, phone, you should both be able to get in touch with one another very easily! I often recommend giving them a friend's email address in case you lose your internet or computer.
Make your deadlines known. If/when possible, create a calendar that's easily viewable between yourself and your partner(s). A Google Document can be very efficient and handy for this.
Keep a list of when each page is due, the update schedule, as well as any conventions, signings, events, etc. that are coming up and details about them.
Share credit. Especially if your finances are low, do your best to help out your partner(s). If they are the artist, it may be a good idea to have their name on every page. Also, understand that all financial tasks related to the comic are up to you, as the creator. If they offer, that's great! But don't demand or expect it, just be joyful if your team offers. Understand their money and time is precious, just as yours is. Even if they draw/color/edit/promote/etc. fast, they are still taking the time they could be doing something else to do work for you.
If you're offering a skill:
As Manga Creators has stated in their guide, before you work with someone, be sure you know what you are getting yourself into!
Do not commit to a project you might bail on, as it can have rather devastating consequences. One, the person/people you are working with will lose trust in you, and may be out a good bit of money, time, effort, etc. Let your commitment level be known, and be honest about it!
Don't go about as if you are super involved with the project, even insisting or offering ideas and changes, if you don't feel you'll be able to stick with the comic. If there is a deadline given, realize that this is like any other job, and consequences exist if deadlines are missed. Twice now, RavynCrescent has had artists bail on her the day before a convention, with nothing done. The first time it cost her thousands, the second time it cost her hundreds (She'd learned to be wary), and had to come up with a whole new set of projects just so she would not be sitting there with an empty table as the whole focus was supposed to be on this new artist of hers.
If you're looking for a one shot, says so. If you can be invested in a lengthy comic, also say so.
Now, life does happen, but it is important to be very vocal and explain things to your partner(s). If your time for the comic diminishes, explain that it has right when you realize it, and see if you can help find a replacement, even if it's temporary, or see what other plans the team might have.
Being replaced can hurt, but if you handle every situation with dignity and grace, you end up looking better for it, and will be able to use your team members as referrals for future jobs.
