    Yes...In my case I have bad experiences with that site....Not only they won´t alow you to see 90 percent of the job ads on the site ( if you don´t pay them montly) Also the ones you can see are probably made by the worst type of clients (IME):

    - Writers looking for a publisher.
    - People that have no clue on how much does a picture cost.
    - The king of cleint that won´t give you a contract...and probably won´t pay you anyways.

    I guess the site is really an experiment gone bad ( for illustration jobs) or I had some incredible bad luck.


    Did I mentioned that...Even if you get paid, it will be less than the standart amount and Guru.com will take a % of it?

    Guru.com, elance, all those competetive bidding sites are strictly bottom feeder territory.

    If you want clueless clients, endless revisions, and less than minimum wage, then by all means sign up. I dare you.
