    Hi everybody,

    I'm new to the forum and I'm interested in finding some cool projects to join. After posting an ad, I thought I'd check out some other ads from the community.

    But I don't know if this is OK: if somebody has put out an ad for, say, a 2D artist and I like how the project sounds, can I post in that thread and say something like "Hey, I'm not a 2D artist, but maybe I can help you out with..."? Or is that not allowed?

    I'm asking because I'd think it would be pretty natural way to do things, especially when you don't find ads that suit your skills. (I'm interested in scriptwriting, and I couldn't find anything in the unpaid section by checking the titles)

    Thanks!

    It varies on the poster, if it's listed as in setting up a team it can come up to a lot of people and if they want to have those of other talents to join them in other area's they need assistance in.

    Though at it's very core, it's up to the OP to make that kind of call and what not.

    Yeah, it is allowed, but if I see people replying to a dozen posts and half of them are from a year ago, it always bothers me... personally.
