 I always considered an algorithm to be at a rather abstract level: A principal method of solving a problem, way ahead of the coding. An algorithm can be described in prose, or if you want it in a more formal way, in pseudocode. Developing new algorithms is to develop new methods. A different way of doing sorting. Or load distribution. Or image compression. Or... When that new method is described in sufficient detail in free prose or pseudocode, the algorithm design work is complete. You may hand it over to an implementor, who might realize the pseudocode in lisp, or Prolog, or APL, or Javascript, or Fortran IV, whatever he chooces. (He might even choose K&R C!) That is implementation, not algorithm design. So when someone asks for new algorithm designs, they essentially ask for research work. Developing principally new methods for solvin a given problem. I certainly don't think that Member 14843185 is inviting you to participate in a research work aimed at finding new solutions. His project is somewhere on the long line between basic research and homework. Honestly I suspect that it is leaning over to the homework side. Or at least implementation of known methods, not developing new methods. Coding for pay. You may be cynical enough to say: Even if it turns out to be to do his homework, if he pays me for it, it is his problem that he is not learning what he should learn. Or your morals may say that it isn't right - he is fooling himself and you should not contribute to it. If he really represents some serious development company in search of consultants to take on a project with them, you might consider it. But I think this looks like a rather strange way of hiring consultants.
