Post it as an answer so I can mark it as 'the' answer Joe.

Oh, I forgot to specify: I'm speaking of a browser game here coded in PHP + MySQL + JQuery (on top of the HTML + CSS skeletons). It is only due to this whole combo of circumstances that I'm here. I wouldn't look for a programmer if I had a very heavy and intensive 3D game that would normally require an entire crew of programmers and not just one. I know very well that my idea can be taken care of by just one designer and one programmer

The whole shebang didn't fit above so I'll continue here. By working with me, I refer to doing the programming side of things while I handle design, advertising, management, etc. etc. In my game the design and the programming workload are pretty much 50-50. There's the game's 'external' promotional website, the game interface per se, the countless graphic elements that give colour and shape to the game and last but not least, the whole game idea itself, properly laid down, carefully planned and masterfully executed. Then there's advertising, management, etc.

I disagree entirely. Lots of people have ideas, very few actually go and execute them all the way through. I am openly looking for someone who could be interested in working with me - not for me -. That doesn't mean that because it's an unpaid job that I'm just expecting 'whoever' to come and act as a slave for me. You don't even know what is being offered. And the only reason I ask this question is because I have met good programmers looking for promising no-pay projects. Unfortunately they had already found good choices before I showed up ;)
