    Moderators,
    I need your approval to start a new thread in contest section to provide some helpful tips and information for contest holders and contest participant.

    I would like to enter information on how to hold a successful contest for example, contest holder who ask for transparent design , get less quality entries. Because designer believe that transparent designs could be used without permission. and more information in this nature.
    SEMrush
    In this thread I would also like to add a list of contest holders that do not conclude their contest. Of course contest holders with no reasonable entries to their contests will not be listed.

    the designer community on digital point works really hard for very little money and are still being taken advantage of by some. This thread (potential sticky) can help dp design community. your attention is much appreciated.
    thank you
    Chewysmom

    Informational posts do not belong in buy, sell, trade. Buy, sell, trade area is only for those three type activities.

    On top of that, any kind of "beware" post is not allowed here. Those kinds of comments belong only in actual deal threads or iTrader and only from people engaging in the deals. You're also not in a position to decide which contest holders received "reasonable" entries.

    I understand, but we can't leave negative iTrader for an abandoned contests, so there is nothing we can do about it.
    anyway, thanks for reply
    cheers

    Is this because I didn't respond to this PM you sent me?

    THIS WAS A $40 CONTEST AND YOU WERE TRYING TO UNDERCUT ALL OTHER DESIGNERS IN PRICE.

    This may be because you recognized that your design wasn't nearly as good as any other entries, but either way, that is extremely unethical.

    I ended up choosing the best design and paying the full $40 for it - BECAUSE IT WAS THE BEST DESIGN.

    I have reported that PM that you sent me. I also will be posting negative rep for you.

    Good Luck with Life.

    no, I wanted to see if you had any intention to pay at all.
    and I was right, you didn't have any intention to pay

    you selected the other design because of this thread, isn't that right?

    so I succeeded, I forced you to pay for the design you got
    I'm really proud of myself
