Bumpimg this because people NEED to read this and understand what scouting is!!
This should be stickied. :c
Very useful guide, will definitely help if I ever scout anyone.
Great work on explaining this. Heck, I tend to get a few scouts from time to time, but I do not often get interested because of how some of them replied to me. It's easier to get a newbie interested since they probably are not in a project and need to get some more experience, but for someone who has done this for a while now, I simply do not want to take up a voice acting gig unless someone can sell their project for me.
A message to all scouts out there; if you think a voice actor suits your project perfectly, then you'd better give your all to show that it is not a waste of that person's time. More experienced voice actors have it a lot easier to get into projects because of their status and skills, so they will only respond to scouts that will highly guarantee releasing their projects and show potential, while still being fun for the voice actors themselves.
I am not trying to put newbies down here, but you need to learn to crawl before you can walk. What I mean by that is, if you are new at making projects of any kind, then I would suggest starting small with what you do which actually guarantees a release. Everyone starts small at some point, even the more experienced ones. If you have the patience and give yourself time to grow, you will make a much better impression on everyone who has watched you during that period and will increase your chances of getting certain voice actors you want for your projects.
That is all.

Hooray! This is the awesome . . . thanks, Sapphire.
Maybe this is just me, but I really don't like being scouted via mass message. I just feel that if you're asking me to take interest in your project, you should put forth a little more effort in expressing your interest in me. It goes back to what was originally mentioned about specifying why you feel this one performer in particular is an asset to the project.
Bumping this because knowledge is power & SHOULD NOT be forgotten.
