This is not really an AD, I'm not trying to spam the board. I'm looking for a sound guy in the NY area and have been having trouble finding someone. I've posted on craigslist but I either get nothing or craigslist takes down my ad.
Try mandy.com as well as craigslist. Also, make sure you offer, at very least, a token compensation. There are so many ads on craigslist offering "credit and copy" (which should be a part of any working relationship anyway). I can imagine that a lot of the ads calling for volunteers would be flagged by people tired of seeing them. Even just $100 - whatever you can spare - would go a long way towards attracting someone who's serious about the role.

Keep in mind that in our technologically advantageous climate that Sound Designers don't need to be local unless there's a specific situation that requires it. I do remote work all the time. 99% of the time actually. And yes, as @Roger mentioned, please offer some form of compensation. Any of us worth our salt or worth hiring really has no need for credit and copy or food service meals. Integrity alone is worth more than any of that.
I am a sound designer. I will have my MFA in May 2012. What is the project that you want to sound design for? What is the address? How much is the compensation? If you are still looking for a sound designer contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
