Hi All - Thanks for letting us know about your experience with Shortlisting.
@Commulinks @jackieheraty - All top rated names are automatically moved into a CH's shortlist when their contest closes. These entries will not trigger a notification.
@ALDaisy1 - We have added a contest hyperlink to the Shortlist notification. Shortlisted names will also now have an entry rating that is equal to the highest rating in the contest (typically Love it or Like it).
@jackieheraty - We will update the winner selection process to only consider entries which have been shortlisted. However, this change has not yet been put into place. When it is, it will be possible for an entry with a low rating, which is later added to the shortlist, to be awarded, and an entry with a Love it rating to be removed from consideration if it is removed from the Shortlist.
@LizzyTish - Shortlisting a name will be equivalent to rating up. For now, we have paused all ratings once a contest closes, so the CH can focus on Shortlisting entries.
