Writer Code of Conduct

Only original work may be submitted. Modifying the work of another writer is not considered original work and may not be submitted.

Users who initiate name contests pay in advance so the writer prize money is guaranteed. However, in the rare event that the user is not satisfied with the quality of names submitted, they may request a refund, in which case no writer is declared a winner and the cash prize is returned. The contest holder does not own the rights to any of the names submitted.

All writers are expected to show respect for fellow writers and for users who hold contests. Professionalism is required. Sending messages that are insulting, vulgar, threatening or otherwise unprofessional will not be tolerated and may result in suspension or expulsion from the Name My Blank community.

Please do not submit any name that are offensive or vulgar.

Alert the Name My Blank Team immediately if any user is seeking a slogan for something vulgar or offensive.

Thoroughly read the contest brief. If you have any additional questions, please contact the user who initiated the contest brief by clicking on their name at the top of the brief.

If you are selected the winner of a name contest, the user of the contest immediately owns the sole rights to your winning name for any and all purposes they deem fit in perpetuity. If you submit work and are not selected the winner, you retain sole rights to your work. Even if you are selected as the 2nd place or 3rd place winner, you still retain the rights to your work.

In the rare event that a name contest holder initiates a name contest but does not pick a winner, a winning name will be randomly selected.

Writers are not allowed to send messages to contest holders that offer them any kind of incentive to be picked as the contest winner.
