What skill level should I be to join the site and work as a freelancer?
I believe I am skilled enough to work on some smaller C++ jobs for a little bit of experience, not so much the money. What do you believe my skill level should be? And if you've ever used any of these sites (Elance.com, odesk.com) what do you think of them?
I'm a game programmer and computer science ninja !

Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.
Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I occasionally write about assorted stuff.

I will caution that in my experience, the contractors are given the harder work
Keep in mind that this is particularly true of C++ (as it is for the various rarer, but highly-specialized languages). One can pickup relatively unskilled Ruby, Python or PHP gigs, but C++ projects tend to be more critical to begin with, and contractors are expected to bring a very solid set of skills to the table.
