Kintaro (sorry, I don’t know how to link you directly), I sure do hope not to turn this thread into a discussion about what should and what should not be asked for as volunteer work. I do agree you might just be in need of some help regarding a project, and that’s what volunteers do, help with projects, without being paid. I do agree that maybe you are a developer or animator and need a model, or maybe you are working with Blender yourself and having trouble on a project, but I do not see registering on a website because you received a homework (that, to be frank, is quite simple) that you had not done. I would really find it hard to believe that the OP had only one day to complete his homework with no prior knowledge of Blender. OP (I use OP instead of he/she, it’s faster) most probably knew for quite some time about this homework, and I do believe OP was given some time to complete it, a reasonable amount of time.
And still, I would have had no problem with this, as I said, if at least OP was an active member of the community. But he/she only registered to ask for help with the homework. It’s like I have my final project due tomorrow and ask you to do it for me because… Reasons? I don’t want to make assumptions, there could be some good reasons, or the teacher could be unreasonable, but I do believe this is not the case. I just think OP thought he/she could do it all in the last minute and found out he wasn’t able to.
Also, this is surely an easy project (as Benarius pointed out) and half an hour of watching some basic tutorials could have been enough. I see asking on the forums as a long route to something so easy. It was understandable if the project was something massive, hard even for an intermediate user (which I surely am not), but like this… Sorry, but no, I don’t think that’s what Volunteer Work is for. I believe it is for learning and for overcoming problems encountered in Blender with the help of an awesome community. You could, as I said, be an animator in SFM and wanting a specific model you can’t make, since you have no experience with something like this. Or you could be a game developer in needs of assets. Volunteers should help with this kind of problems, helping people make cool stuff, creating the model or the assets needed.
What OP could’ve done instead is to ask for help on how to do it himself/herself. I would’ve had nothing against it if OP requested a mentor, or if he/she requested help with only a small part he didn’t understand.
I don’t know the customs of other countries, but in my country registering on a forum just so you can ask someone else to do your homework would be seen as rude, impolite. I don’t think that’s what volunteer work is all about. It should be about sharing and learning together, not asking someone else to do what you should have done, and ask them to do it for free.
