@Commulinks thank you very much for your reply. Is there a link you could provide regarding reviewers getting 4 names at a time and picking just 1 from those? I went through dozens for forum posts but haven’t found anything with the specifics you mentioned.
I did see @grant posted this awhile back:
“Unfortunately we will not compromise the integrity of our review process - all names are reviewed independently, and will be accepted or rejected purely on the basis of the overall fit of the domain. If you submit 100 names or 10 names, it doesn’t alter the process the team uses to evaluate your individual names.”
That led/leads me to believe SH looks at each name individually not in a competition round.
If SH does do a 4 name competition that strikes me as very odd and not well thought out. I could see 4 names in similar market say soccermom vs soccerfan vs footballmom but to pit various names against one another is counter-productive. How do the 4 get selected? Is it just the order of the queue? If I submit a bunch of domains at once, am I competing against myself?
If I submitted a strong domain like soccerfan but it was up against zoo, droid and pasta then soccerfan will lose every time.
I greatly appreciate any clarity on this from those in the community as well as SH support.
