What would I need to get someone else to program for me OR how can I learn easily from home with no money?

I would like to politely point out a few items and please correct me if I am wrong.
1- I found no referrence to where locally actually is, so I perceive this site to be considered locally.
2 - As you pointed out my referrence to pay and taxation was meant to be light hearted. No Pay is No real Job. ( Personally not looking for Additional Work )
3 - Original post asked what was needed to start putting things together ( Paraphrasing ), My second line in your down vote clearly states what I < Meaning myself> would need as a programmer who would be willing to help, would generally need to get a rough start.
I thought I was helping. After all is not that what this Web-Site is about ?
As for me personnally , I have copyright computer programs on file, albeit not recently. Currently write application software for local small businesses.
I know your position here, and I am putting forth my honesty, Since there were no JOB OFFERS following my down voted statement. I feel that maybe you should have waited on your negativity.

maybe you should read more closely and not take responses so litteral
The written word is king here. There is no tone, no facial expressions, and no agreeable cultural context (aside from using english). Literal is the only way things CAN be taken. If you write something out, you can't guarantee how it will be interpreted if it was a "loaded" or sarcastic statement. Especially if the reader is from a culture where that's not a normal way to tell a joke. The request to "not take things so literally" is therefore a little trite and unfitting for this environment.

The internet is everywhere and nowhere. It doesn't matter that the OP didn't indicate where they are, they weren't specifically asking for an applicant, moreso how to ask for one successfully. Your point about a rough idea of the story and concept is helpful therefore, and something several people mentioned in the "so you're a programmer" thread.

* What kind of game are you making? RPG? First person shooter? Turn based isometric strategy game?
* What level is your art-work at. Would I want to be associated with your art? I mean, if your art is on the level of pastel stick-figures, I probably wouldn't want to be in your project. So. Do you have a portfolio?
* What sort schedule do you have?
* Do you accept that art is code-driven, and that I would most likely come and tell you to change things for optimal performance? I mean, a single 200 frame animation might not be the most optimal thing, and I might need just 40 frames instead, and I might want you to squash your high polygon models into something manageable in code?
* What are you like as people?
What I'm getting at is that I would like you to tell me that you have a definite vision, that you have considered the work-flow, and most importantly that you are people I would like to work with for a prolonged period. It's not so much about code and languages, because as a coder that would be my responsibility. I am more interested to know if you have a realistic project that I too can enjoy and learn form, and I would like an incling as to the personal dynamics I would expect to face.
I hope that helps somewhat. Good luck in finding someone.
