What does it mean when the project is "Pending"?

When a project is pending it means that the buyer has not selected a winner yet. When this happens we set in motion a series of events.

First we email them. Then, if they don't respond, we call them. And eventually, if there's still no response, we step in and close the project ourselves.

Projects that are guaranteed will be awarded by our panel based on several factors, such as the quality of the entry, brief guidelines, buyer's comments and scores, and the creatives' overall behavior and record on cS.

Naming projects that receive over 100 entries and are pending go through the same motion of events. The panel reviews the domain availability and trademarking aspects as well before selecting a winner.

We hold all payment for awarded Abandoned Projects 30 days after the wrapup has been completed.

Projects that are not naming projects and are not guaranteed are closed and marked completed.
