People will pay you money to develop BuddyPress code and plugins.
Also, don’t wanna get shot down for this but if anyone knows a *top-class* BP coder, then please get in touch!
As someone who would gladly pay for coding, I think this is absolutely fine. There really needs to be a BP developer/user exchange to help get some sites out there. I personally have more BP-related tasks than I have time, and would love to hook up with a developer who would do a “pay for coding” arrangement, even if for odd jobs and site maintenance.
I could see a tiered system where you could code for a private project, or it could be done for the benefit of the overall BP community (for example, get paid up front to develop a plugin; release it, and the people who commissioned the plugin get their cost defrayed by eventual donations from users). There could be levels of arrangement similar to how Creative Commons works that would indicate what type of license you are coding for, though this is probably getting too fancy for now.
Maybe you’re a developer and “been down that road” and can tell me why this is a bad idea. Otherwise, let’s start paying people money for what they are good at…
