You should report any contest that you see breaking the Vinylmint user guidelines.  This way, you can help keep Vinylmint a great community for both sound creators and contest holders.

These are the main problems we would like you to report to us:

  1. No winner chosen: Please report the contest if the contest holder did not select a winner.
  2. Wrong category: Sometimes contest holders need a little help knowing where their contest fits. Please let us know when a contest holder has gotten it wrong and we’ll fix it.
  3. Too many deliverables: This is not allowed, even if some sound creators are willing to complete more than one task for the contest. Please report under this topic, which is for all things handover related.
  4. Potential fraud: If anything about a contest strikes you as a little odd, let us know. It may be something in the brief, a comment on the contest, or maybe there’s something not right about the selected winner. Whatever it is, we will get to the bottom of it.

Remember, a Vinylmint team member will handle these issues privately. Please don’t post public comments about any of these problems – that will only to lead to damaged reputations and refunded contests.

To report a contest, head to our “Contact Us” page and send us a detailed note describing your dilemma.

Sit tight. We will get right on it within the next 24 hours!
