“This was a major website design project involving Joomla, and Virtuemart. Onur of WonderFoundry is VERY skilled, and very good. His English skills are excellent, and his technical web development work was excellent. The problem was in the delays, and frequent disappearances from our regularly scheduled meetings. (sometimes remaining disappeared for many days at a time). Combining that with major health issues with his father, some complications from a surgery on his wife, a fire in an adjacent apartment... and who knows what else, and the result is that this (1) month project has been in progress over (6) months.
He eventually went completely dark on us when we were about 85% to 90% done with the site. Crazy to quit when we were so close to completion. No responses to multiple SMS messages, Emails, Elance workroom comments, or Skype chat. I do hope he is OK, and nothing bad happened to him or his family...
Regardless we are left to pick up the pieces and try to finish out the site with another developer. Disappointing, because as I said, this guy is GOOD. He really knows Joomla, Virtuemart, and WordPress, and is the kind of developer you always hope to find on Elance. Unfortunately, his time management, lack of regular communication, disappearances, and reliably issues finally broke our will to continue.
If he ever get's the $#!T together in his life, and can be reliable, he would be a great and amazingly talented asset to have. Until then, we'll suggest that people steer clear, and just wish him the best.”
