Based on how I've been closing question:
If a user is asking a very open ended question with no detail, it gets closed as either Primarily Opinion Based or Too Broad. This would include short questions like "My client wants me to build x y and z, how much should I charge?"
This type of question is bad for a magnitude of reasons:
- Where do you live?
- What experience do you have?
- How long do you think it would take?
- Have you done it before?
- Will the client actually pay?
- How much break-in time will you need?
- How much time will the client take to pay?
- What is the standard of living for your area?
- What are you Freelancing costs?
- What happens if this client ghosts?
There are too many variables to give a good answer. Therefore, one of the questions I link to constantly when someone asks what to charge includes how to determine what to charge. As the old adage goes, "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, he's fed for life". We need to teach these Freelancers to be self-sufficient to a point.
I may be wrong, but I'd welcome the discussion. But don't expect me to leave questions upvoted and open if they don't have at least half the questions above answered.
