Since there has been cases when contest starters simply disappeared not having paid to designers we are planning to put more emphasis to guaranteed contests. There is going to be a separate forum for them. I think this will help to make more clients want to make their contests guaranteed and stand out from the rest.
Anyways, the question is, what do you think about other forums in Contests section? What should they be?

I think there -only- should be a guaranteed contest section. Nobody's going to enter non-guaranteed ones once it's there

well, the question is are we going to have enough clients willing to start guaranteed contests?

Better to have just a few contests that are guaranteed, than to have a lot of contests the way they are now. I mean c'mon, what's the scam ratio? 80%?

Ok one more thing, if we have guranteed contests, only verified members with a protfoilo should be allowed to enter.

"noob" designs make others look worse and lower the quality and value of this service.

YES YES YES.........non-guaranteed should just be meshed into the charity case area....... I think when you build it they will come. Nobody is going to put up money if they do not have to. If non-guranteed is still around why post a guaranteed? I know I would not. Even if I was serious about my competition.

i think the approval thing is a good idea, but what happens when someone doesn't qualify.

will they be allowed more chances
will chances be limited
will they be branded "noob"

also what about contests with a non-cash (hosting) prize is on offer, will designers that didn't make the cut be able to enter these?

just thought i'd ask because seems likely that i'll be turned away.

My question would be who does the cutting. Simplistic and I haven't made the cut at DesignOutPost and neither did a professional animator friend of mine.

Is this going to become an exclusive club?
