I've been thinking of doing freelance web work on the side. I've noticed that there are sites out there like getacoder.com, rentacoder.com, rentafrelancer.com, etc. Anyone doing this? Anyone have any opinions of which are better/worse?

Thanks

Be aware that you will probably be competing against coders from India or the Philipines, who can match you for skills and undercut you for price.

I knew someone who did a little work on rentacoder.com and he didn't have any complaints. I've looked around there a little and it looks ok other than some buyers don't want to pay very much for the work they are requesting. I assume they either don't understand the complexity of what they are asking for or they are targeting the ones that will work for less (as jalal mentioned), I typically skim right over those. Occasionally there are some really good jobs posted on there but it usually seems like the competition is pretty fierce. As for the other 2 sites, I've never heard of them.
