The policy that you cannot win multiple contests with the same name, and the similar policy that you cannot take other Creatives' winning names and submit them in active contests... Neither are new. We have simply build helpful features for you: (1) previous winning names will be rejected by the system, (2) your names will be automatically withdrawn from other contests if it wins.
We have also added a feature that will block names once they receive a high rating from being submitted to further contests. It is important to note that a high rating will not remove any entries.
These new updates should not add work or stress, or limit your creativity in any way.
You are not asked to check your ideas against previously winning names. The system will alert you if you are submitting a name that has already won. The technical variation policy is in place to prevent Creatives from getting around the system block by submitting a slight variation (e.g. If Squadhelp is blocked by the system, so you should not instead submit Squadhelp Co).
Please know, that we will enforce these policies with discretion. We simply ask that you participate in an integrous way: Use other Creative's winning names to inspire your own ideas; don't just submit their ideas in another contest. If you've developed a list of awesome names, submit them strategically and only after reading the brief; don't just drop your premium names in every contest that comes along. And especially, don't try to win with the same name over, and over, and over.
Finally, to help you quickly developing awesome and unique names specific to each contest brief, we have started a new thread in the forum--How To Develop a Great Name - Strategies, Tactics, Tips, and Tricks.
