    Since a number of people wanted clarification on stuff, I'll attempt to do some clarification in this, along with a little of my experience, so that you can make a decision on what you are interested in. :)

    First and foremost, I generally don't have issues with genres of sites, as I tend to be well enough versed to know when I need to look something up if I am in need of information on something. But for those who would rather have my likes and dislikes, instead of working with me to make sure I am well enough off with a particular subject, following are some of my liked, hated and indifferent genres.

    Liked Genres:
    Off-Topic/General, Music, Anime, General Entertainment, Board Games, Computer Games, Reading, Astronomy, Online Games, Webmaster, Promotional
    Indifferent Genres: Console Games, Role-Playing, Special Needs Forums (All), Sports, Cartoons, Web Hosting, Arts and Crafts, Outdoor Recreational Sports, Tech, Art, Coding, Business Related
    Hated Genres: Fan Forums

    If your genre is not listed above, I probably don't have an opinion. Anything on the liked or indifferent list, I am willing to work with. If you want clarification on whether or not I'll work on your forum, just send me a link privately.

    All of the above asking jobs can be negotiated, based on what you need. If you need a moderator but not as a team leader, I am willing to drop the price some to accommodate. If you need the moderator spot to be full time (average full time work week being 40 hours), then I would be willing to negotiate that with you.

    And remember, you can always negotiate with me the duties you want to have me tend to also with the position.

    For example, if you want the mod team leader position filled, but also would like me to take care of leading a service team at the same time, then you can ask me and provide details on how that would work.

    An another example is if you want me to specifically advertise or specifically take control of advertising accounts and advertise, then depending on the type of advertising, depends on additional costs that needs to be done. Free advertising accounts won't add much to the duty list, but if paid advertising accounts are, then you would need to budget additional expenses out for me to use.

    As a update to my topic, I have combined all of my job wanted offers into the first post, added Full Time Moderation and Full Time Administration as an option, and increased prices for the generic jobs that don't require full time work every single day (meaning 8-10 hours a day). I have also added a little bit more information to the moderation portion.

    The price updates are double in USD, and have been adjusted in price accordingly for the British Pound. I have also included Yearly amount for the Admin job that didn't have it previously.

    Just as a reminder, the jobs above aren't set in stone to what I have defined for them. If you want to negotiate additional duties, you can. :)
