No, seriously, your message was impossible to answer in any other way
and it's the first thing that's come to my mind also.
I don't know if you received any offers (I doubt so) because there is
zero technical content in your whole message. If that is not
intentional, you will need to fix it by describing what it is you want
to do. As every developer has its own area of expertize, you can't
expect anyone to support you without knowing what subsystem it's all about.
