Squadhelp tries to incorporate certain key ideals into each decision that we make…
Recently, we became concerned about the security of names and domains listed on our Recent Winners page. We had several situations where CHs could not register their winning domain because it was already registered after being displayed on the Recent Winners page. In order to protect the IP of the CH and ensure that they receive the deliverable paid for, we began hiding winning names until the domain was registered.
Unfortunately, we have now realized that this is causing some unrest within the Community because it has limited the transparency of the platform. As a crowdsourcing platform, we are committed the Creative Community, and we understand the need for transparency.
Moving forward, we will show all winning names, even if they are not registered, to Tier A Creatives. This will allow us to continue to provide transparency within the process. We will continue to follow the current display policy for non-Tier A creatives as well as unregistered visitors (i.e. names will only be displayed once they are registered).
It is of course still our Policy that any name listed on the Recent Winners page should not be registered by anyone. The winning names (and their close variations) are the IP of the Contest Holder.
If we come across any violations of this Policy, we will take immediate action for the violation of our Terms of Service.
