Hi all,

Unfortunately, this project didn't receive the minimum 25 entries and so we need to make good on our guarantee and give the buyer their money back (including our own fee, for the record).

Please know that we take both our buyers' and creatives' happiness very seriously. We make our buyers take a risk by forcing them to pay up-front without having any idea what they'll receive in return. And we balance that risk by guaranteeing that they'll be rewarded by receiving at least 25 entries to choose from.

Unfortunately, sometimes a project just doesn't get the minimum number of entries. It could be because of a low award, a lack of feedback from the buyer or it could have simply been an unpopular project with creatives. Either way, rest assured that we do everything we can to minimize the number of projects that go unawarded. We know that you invest your time and effort on these projects and it's frustrating to see them go away.

Finally, you have our word that we spoke to this buyer personally and tried to find a different solution but, at the end of the day, this was their decision.

We hope you understand,

The crowdSPRING crew (less)

esotervik - hey, we noticed that you haven't left any feedback in a couple days so we thought we'd drop you a quick note. Remember, buyers who leave good, consistent feedback get TWICE the number of entries that other projects do. And besides, the way the creatives will know what you want is if you tell them! So get in ... (more)

So get in there and let them know what you think of the entries so far. Trust us on this one - you'll be glad you did...
