After a long yet healthy discussion with RentACoder officials today I got an email which really pleased me. RentACoder is now renamed as vWorker which stands for “virtual worker”
I will quote few things which I think was much needed changes for RentACoder
We outgrew our name (Rent a Coder) a few years ago. Back in 2001 we were just coders, but now the site includes professionals of all types including: design, writing, personal assistants, paralegals, etc.. To reflect that, we’ve changed our name to vWorker
Looking to save money and work more flexibly? We’ve introduced an entirely new method of payment called pay-for-time that lets you do both.
Sounds interesting and soon would love to give this a try.
Soon we will be rolling out a new virtualized environment (for higher reliability), site-wide IM and other features.
Would be interesting to see them.
If you still do not have an account with RentACoder vWorker, Go get it now.
Update September 27 2011 : Comments are closed for everyone. Yes I know there would have been last say by many but this is all I could do stop the argument. It is not leading to anything fruitful or to a solution. This is my personal blog after all and in my opinion Ian Ippolito (Owner of vWorker) stood this long to clarify things speaks for itself.
