3) Computers and internet do function over weekends as well. Whether or not J5 visits CT outside business hours is another matter but still...
No-one's publicly calling anyone out here... I find the overall tone of your post somewhat accusatory. I know there's a lot of people on CT who are looking out for J5's image but there's no harm done with this thread imho. I just don't see the rationale for your outburst
I wasn't trying to come off as harsh. Yes, the internet is a 24/7/365 thing, I get that but that doesn't mean that everyone has to be on call every minute of every day. It *was* a weekend, so the fact that he didn't snap-reply didn't warrant a post about it. I can't speak for J5, I'm just generalizing a bit. If you call your Dr. (non 911 emergency) because you want to schedule something on Friday and he doesn't call you back til Monday does that mean that by Sunday you should be looking for another dr? I know it's a different case, but it's the same concept. Anyway, no need to start a 40 page back/forth about who's right/wrong. I'm just saying. IMO
the post should have read something like...
Looking for artist for time-restricted project. ....please contact me to discuss.
After that if J5 replied, then great he got the job. If someone else did and J5 didn't, that's fine too.
The mentioning of him not PMing back *right away* is moot.
On a different note, OP did you try emailing instead of PMing?
