    I've been away from Unity forums for a while. I'm sure there used to be a place to post help wanted ads. I can't find it now. Is it gone? If so why? And is there now no where to post help wanted ads?

    It was replaced with Unity Connect in order to encourage people to sign up to Unity courses and then list them on their profile.

    Which would be all fine and dandy except Unity Connect is an awful chat-based platform utterly inappropriate for conducting commerce (and I say this as someone who was hired about 5 freelancers of various talents and spent $8,000 and climbing on their services)

    Your best bet:

    https://www.gamejobforum.com

    reddit.com/r/gamedevclassifieds - biggest audience, but you need to post a budget to stand out amongst all the non-commercial requests.

    polycount.com - good for artists

    I've also had a lot of success just browsing Artstation and hiring Freelancers from there directly.

    Good luck!

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Unity Connect shuttered in the not too distant future, it's looking very dead over there lately.
