Hi there!

 

"The abandoned contest will be placed in the designers chat forum for designers vote and choose winner of the abandoned contest. The The top 3 voted on entries will be the 3 winners. The prize will be split with these 3 winners."

 

Sometimes it takes more than 3 months to end a contest, because the admins are trying to reach out the client repeatedly and convince him to choose a winner by himself.

We do not know that yet. DC has to leave it as much as possible in case client comes back. 

I do not want to frighten you, but we had clients comebacks after a year. 

If you do not want to reuse your design, then I suggest you just leave it there until client comes back or it goes to abandoned status and voting.

7kinds, We have already replied you. I know a year is long period, but yes it can be like that. 

Please read admin's Sharie first/intro post here: https://www.designco...ndoned contest

 

Our talk about this expired contest will not change its status or anything. Since you can not reuse your designs, just leave it as it is until client is back or go for vote.

 

Btw, I didn't have problem opening the contest from the link.

To end the debate/recurring questions about split expired contests:

Here the list of all expired/abandoned contests, that are eligible to vote/split, sorted from the oldest to the newest:

https://www.designco...eft_asc&npp=120

*I think this link should be sticked at the top of the relevant forum page.

 

As of today, there's 36 contests matching these criteria of split eligibility; Guaranteed & Expired

As you can see, the oldest one here is 18 months! can you imagine! Contests are labeled as "abandoned" for many reasons:

Sometimes CHs just change their mind/plan or get the designs from an agency or elsewhere and just drop/forget about the contest they started!

But sometimes CHs will come back months later and will want to pick a winner by themselves, as @ramsro mentioned, so... that's another viewpoint too.

Please go vote on abandoned contests,  many times  I have to ask for more votes

 

I will try  to add new ones in a quicker fashion once there are 3 clear winners

I get clients coming backs after a contest has expired

 

the latest ... almost 3 yrs... guess what   they paid with Amex.... Amex doesnt have refund time limits and 100% side with clients... We had to pay this chargeback that was  3 yrs old abandoned contest

 

then we also have them comeback  yr later demanding we open the contest

 

it is a nightmare to keep track of sometimes  :)
