You think you know Monopoly? There’s more to Monopoly than you’d think. From Game/Show | PBS Digital Studios.
The past few days since the site officially launched has been very interesting. The enthusiasm of new people discovering TabletopFreelance.com has been intoxicating. I’m sure the site will be a help to the tabletop gaming industry.
However, there have been grumbles in the feedback, too. The first complaint is that at the time of this writing, there are no jobs listed. That will change in time. A tipping point will come in which game publishers will see this site as the place to go to find good, reliable talent. That will take time and legwork to promote TTF and bring the publishers in.
I would also like to point out TTF has great profile and gallery functions that will allow you and your work to be SEEN on a site that is specifically made to attract the attention of game publishers. Why risk them running across you accidentally somewhere on the internet? Anything posted here is still under your copyright. TTF claims no ownership of your work.
The second complaint is that TTF is a pay site. True, it is and I’m not going to apologize for it. There are several reasons for this:
- It keeps me from using advertising to fund the site.
- It keeps out the riff-raff. I mean spam, mostly. I want to make certain that the primary audience coming to TTF are gaming professionals. I don’t want to dilute the quality of the listings.
- The prices are reasonable. The $5 Freelancer membership is the equivalent of a cheap lunch out. The $20 Publisher membership would be about the price of a pizza. The memberships are per year, and not per month.
I hope that helps! If you have any questions, I can be reached through out contact form on the FAQ page.
