Home Forums Other How to deal with a possibly unfair client? Re: How to deal with a possibly unfair client?


Clients are difficult. Not always because they want to, or because they are jerks — often because they have no idea (they really DO think something will take 3 minutes when in reality, it could be 2 hours).
A client that is always easy to work with and won’t frustrate you, ever, is hard to find. Clients think “this is my site, I decide what happens with it” and the developer doesn’t have much choice than to follow those wishes (of course, assuming that client pays).

I agree with the gentlemen above, I also think that developers and designers putting their names/links in the footer of the site mainly do it for promotional purposes and makes it somewhat less professional. If you get paid properly for your work, you don’t need the public recognition, right? But it’s a personal thing, I’ve done it myself as well.
