Duh. Nevermind LOL thanks!
Thank you!! I'm so excited to see the domain checker added to the entries page.
Available .. not available... almost all the domains checker here on Squadhelp ERROR, from .com, .com.au, .ly . Could you please fix this. thanks!
.com.au has been giving me grief all week. And I feel bad because CH has been loving my entries only to find out they are not truly available as domains.
I'm wondering if there's a more efficient way contestants could ask the CHs for ratings.I recall that awhile ago, contestants were asking for ratings via private messages and more openness was requested.What about a button within each contest that contestants could press after a reasonable amount of time. Maybe after the contest is open to all contestants. We could check and see if and how often the CH had already been asked to rate entries without receiving an e-mail each time. Maybe an automatic reminder could be triggered a few days into each contest, too. It seems like half my SH e-mails pertain to asking for ratings. Any other suggestions on this idea?
normally i would be excited about a win. however, this was one of the contests where the domain checker system was super wonky. i entered a domain that was actually taken - i didn't know until several days later when the system was fixed. this makes me feel really negative about my win, like I obviously do not deserve it. I hope the CH just liked the name and will be happy to use it as an APP name or with .io, .co or something that works. worst win ever!
I had a couple on this one, too. So does that mean mine were already registered when I subbed, them, too?
I would check whois.net to get a full history on the domains you entered. The SH domain checker has been having issues. It is CH who informed me the domain was already registered. Lucky they did their due diligence.
Domain checker is the very Core on Squadhelp, no more errors will be better
I know that we cant enter names mentioned in the brief by the contest holders.I wonder if we could extend this to include words that a contest holder specifically asked us not to use.
The problem I have with that is that CHs provide updates periodically and add words not to be used. I rarely remove my entries, sometimes because I forget, sometimes I think they deserve consideration anyway. And sometimes they'll accept forms of words they said they didn't want.
Here's my confusion on domain availability/ auto-checker. I submitted a name in an exact match with multiple domain choice domain options (.co) for example. I get private message(s) from the client saying"great name- to bad it's taken"!. How can it say avaible on our end, but not the customers end?
PS: at sh admins? Thanks
This has happened to me several times over the past few days. One domain that was available was actually registered in 2004 The client loved the name but I had to remove it because it is in fact completely unavailable.
@Sh. ....is the domain checker. set up for around the world availability or just. com? Just curious if it's a glitch in the automatics, or how that works? Thanks
and maybe SH can add " app names availability", so not only domains but app also hmm.
can i presume we are now allowed to enter names that are in the brief because i can see a winner wher this is quite plain
I have had one like this also and the CH was not happy with me.
The CRM in the ABC does the SaaS to the YMCA for the BMI on the ACT! ICYMI, LOL
Dear SH, I don't know if you already tell CHs this, but I am hoping you can ask them to spell out all of their acronyms in their brief. My head is spinning!Thanks!
Also to SH: Would it be possible now for you to consider reducing or eliminating the 10% fee for creatives OR increasing the minimum award beyond $100? After 10% and after taxes, the net is really low on $100 contests and they take the same amount of time as the higher awards. It would be so great if you could put it on your radar to decrease the fee to us or increase the fee to the CH. Thanks for considering. It can't hurt to ask.
Yep! - LOL -
