Past/Recent Interest (By Steemians) In SteemGigs
Did you notice that a successful steemGIG happened some 2 years ago?
@kus-knee had created a custom request at the time, to which @fisteganos offered his service. @fisteganos got paid in SBD and then went on to earn an additional 394 $ from his eventual SteemGig Testimonial post.
More recently, @acidyo brought a similar topic up in his post here: Why VoiceOverPete should join Steem! Looking at the comment section of the post, you will notice that steemians still remembered SteemGigs.
See these screenshots:
And here is some passionate video(s) evidence.

Latest 'Development' Update
This post covers recent development endeavor that has occurred on steemgigs.org, in relation to our plans for the month of January 2019
Below, i will expand on some of the tasks that @tobias-g has completed so far as well as additional development tasks that he worked, on his own loving volition.
Recall that, that steemgigs.org has a knowledge-bank; meaning that it is very content-based (steemgigs.org has a surpassinggoogle paradigm). To this effect, we have '18 specialized posting editors' across steemgigs.org
Our aim is to use these editors to incite users to 'serve the search engines'. Each of these editors thus, have to be simplistic, interactive and intuitive.
In the past, the 'create-a-gig' editor was made up of multi-pages. Users had to pass through several pages to complete each segment of the editor (i.e Title > Description > Pricing > Requirements > Delivery > Portfolio). This must have created a measure of hassle for users.
Now users can have a general overview of what input the 'create a gig' editor, will require of them, all on one page, making them better inclined to complete their gig-posts. Where they have made an error, they can now correct errors on the same page.
To keep the editor less bogus, @tobias-g added a collapse component to each segment of the editor. Users can collapse/expand these areas at will.
Looking closely, you will also notice the stamp of @tobias-g, on the general styling of side-text-box that characterizes all our editors.
This was how it looked before:
He also added a video embed area, which will eventual host tutorials. (Note: steemgigs.org is very community-based. To this effect, all video tutorials will be created by 'certified uloggers', to showcase our community and to give these 'certified uloggers' extra limelight on our interfaces.)
Next, he improved the metadata for steemgigs.org to improve how the website gets indexed in the search engines and to make steemgigs.org more presentable in search results.
This how we now look in google search results:
@tobias-g, then went on to adding social-share-buttons at the bottom of posts (across steemgigs.org). This will allow you to share your gigs etc on the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Reddit etc
This is how it looks:
He also worked on post-payout-display, post-7days. Prior to now, posts displayed a payout of 0.00$, post-7 days as seen below:
It currently displays actual post-payout independent of post-age as seen below:
@tobias-g also fixed a bug on our homepage (prior to login), that prevent users from navigating the page.
In summary, this was covered in the last two days:
In the coming days, we will start working on the more complex/core tasks. We will like to enhance our search portal, by improving on categorization and add a 'sorting' mechanism.
Then we will work on enhancing our landing page, adding an optional escrow functionality and private message.
We plan to work the hardest within the month of January.
We will begin to invite users to test steemgigs.org once again, once we have completed the search and categorization functionality. Then, we will seek to re-open steemgigs.org to public use just thereafter.
We invite interested developers to join in, in helping us build steemgigs.org
While i am not usually very frontal with asking support, you may decide to support my efforts at this point as i really need support.
To do so, @steemgigs is now open to delegation and where you see fit, "donations".
Within the next few months, 'delegation' will be focused towards supporting contributors, especially to the development of steemgigs. This will help us speed development, to where steemgigs.org primary functions are ready within a month or two.
Regardless, i will keep using my resources, financial and otherwise, however limited, to bring steemgigs.org to full-blown life. This is a slower route but my healing lies in, "gifting the world with some awesomeness via my projects".
