Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that we've issued a cS award to user "kiksywiksy" for their great work - congrats, kiksywiksy!

If you're wondering why the full award wasn't given out, well, unfortunately, the buyer in this project has asked for a refund. And, because we offer buyers a money-back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise. In these cases, we refund the entire award (and our project fee) and pay the creative a cS award out of our own pockets. We've promised that every single project will be awarded - no matter what - and this is our way of honoring that promise. While we can't always pay the full award in every case, the winning creative is also free to keep the rights to all their work and do with it what they want. We hope you understand...

Thanks so much for participating and see you around the site,

The crowdSPRING crew
