I was browsing through the freelance category on this forum and I've noticed something. That would be awesome if we'll be able to close the request that no longer is valid. I mean, if someone hired someone else already, why not posting info about it? Or closing the topic? Or even better - leave a review about the designer he/she worked with?
Maybe we could make it a rule at that category? Email those who have open topics and ask if they have found someone, was it good and can we close topic or will he drop a review?
P.S. By we I mean you of course
;P I'm just a ninja used for a dirty code-based work
