In order to further improve the level of transparency and protect the hard work of creatives, we have added additional information on the Contest page. You will now be able to see if any domains registrations have been reported by other contestants in that contest. The count includes all reported registrations even if the information does not match the CH. While some of the domain registrations can be completely coincidental, you can take this information into account before participating into contests or to withdraw entries from a contest. Since this information is always visible on the contest page, it should also increase the accountability of Contest Holders who might have registered names without compensation.
If you notice that a contest has any reported domain registrations, please check your submitted entries as well. If you find that any of them have also been registered, please report this information immediately, using the “Report Domain” feature. We will follow up with the CH if we receive 2 or more reports of domain registration from the same contest even if the Who Is information does not match the CH.
This information is visible under the “Contest Stats” section on the right.
