Some things strike me as being really odd. Regarding the commission post I made: it’s not the first time I try doing this. After I realized that asking for free was not really going to help (because many people don’t have time, or the will to do such a project) I already tried in the past about offering money. And in the past I didn’t get any responses. Perhaps I chose the wrong channel of communication? I’m not sure. Perhaps people were too busy? A simple “no” would have been better.
But I think it all boils down to the bad habits of people on the Internet. And having read around about Mark Shuttleworth (of Ubuntu fame) offering money to help the GIMP project and then being forced to withdraw it, perhaps I shouldn’t be so surprised.
Nevertheless, I’ll keep on trying.
