    Did you ask to see samples of the dudes work before starting? Did you give him samples of what you wanted?

    Regardless, if that was what was delivered, depending on what you paid, you got flat out ripped off.

    Heres his email to me stating his point of view on this so his side is represented as well:


    "The original deal was to create a store for you to sell posters on. When I proposed that we go with Magento and sent you a link to check it out, why did you not say something about the design after you had seen the demo on their site? I thought it was pretty clear.

    You were not ripped off by any means. Anyone else would have charged you way more and then charged you extra for everything else you wanted done. I probably have 30 or more hours into your site tweaking little things that you wanted. You also got a free logo design. I have also hosted the site for you completely FREE this whole time.

    Transistor was joking in that thread, he knows I did the site. If you want to mention my name, fine. But at least mention all the details."

    I don't see how you can spend 30 hours installing magento. :rofl: what else was done besides adding the posters? The logo would take me all of 2 minutes to do :dunno: I don't see where theres 30 hours invested into that site.
