I thought that another PHP guy with a similar skill level as myself, plus a graphic designer in the later stages, would really give the project the professional edge it needs, and of course speed up delivery.
I have an awesome idea - if you do all the work I'll cut you in for a few percent.... I wouldn't personally invest the time/money to have it built professionally, but it's worth at least one billion dollars to Google or Yahoo... so your ten percent will be worth 100 Million Dollars!

georgeoc wrote:Kieran - I absolutely understand your point. In fact I've often browsed threads in this forum thinking "No! Don't do it - it's a scam!". But understand that I spend a lot of my free time now doing PHP projects for free - it really is a hobby. So what harm is there is taking this on, with a contract that guarantees me both some compensation for development time and a cut of the profits if it does well?
