What does the level mean?

Your level reflects your performance at getaslogan.com. There are several contributing factor to your level. The most important are how many times you have been finalist and how many times you have been the winner of a contest.

Pending payments are done within the first 5 days of the next. Payments are only performed if they are $50 or above; otherwise, they are accumulated in your account.

 

Can the rating of a slogan I suggested change?

Yes, clients can change their mind at any time while their slogan contest is running.

 

What does it mean that a contest is locked?

A contest is locked if the client didn't take action in the allowed time. If a contest is locked, no user can see the slogans or rate them. Clients may ask for contest unlock. In this case, the locked contest resumes.

The locking mechanism is necessary because, otherwise, the contest would remind open for ever. If we receive no news from the client after 30 days the contest has been locked, we distribute the prize among the contest participants. In the case the contest is locked during the finalist phase, we distribute the prize only among the finalists.

 

What's the number of my slogan (e.g. #3)? 

Every slogan in each slogan contest gets a number automatically. This is the order in which a slogan arrives. If you get, for instance, the number #47, it means that there are already 46 other slogans before yours. This has nothing to do with the rating. It is just convenient in case you have written several slogans and the client wants to chat with you. The slogan number is an easy way to uniquely identify a slogan within a slogan contest.

 

What does it mean that a slogan has been eliminated? 

Clients can eliminate slogans from their slogan contest. This means that they have already decided that they don't like that slogan and don't want to see it. This is useful for them so that they focus on the slogans they like most. The alternative would be to rate them with 1 star, but this can be in some cases not convenient as there would still be many slogans in the same view. Clients can also at any time change the status of eliminated slogans to visible ones.

 

How do I now if I've won a contest?

When the client selects your slogan as the winner slogan, you will be sent automatically an email to inform you. You will need to fill the copyright agreement and make sure that your paypal account is configured in the settings.

 

I just entered a blind contest and received a notification saying that my slogan was rated. How do I see this rating?

Just enter the contest again, go the slogan tab and it will be there. In case there are multiple pages, you will need to browse the pages or filter by writer and select your user name.
