i got a guy on elance that offered to do a fairly simple website with a db. he bid $140. others are bidding $250-$600. under my requirements i put: a site for XXX. a user logs in, and posts XXX and visitors can search XXX. i looked at his portfolio and saw a couple where i liked the layout, and said i wanted him to make my site look like either of those. he said the template will be $150 extra...but he would design a template from scratch. wtf does this mean? anyone can dl 1000 web templates from some torrent site..or you can buy them for like $10 ea. what could he mean he's doing a "different" template from scratch? he's asked me for the content for the home page, and the navigation bar, etc...and will design a mock up to show me, but if we're working from a template, id like to know exactly what, and how much, information i need to have so it flows nicely. amirite?
