    All, I just wanted to let everyone know that I didn't realize that rejecting a design caused Freelancers to loose points. I thought I was supposed to reject the projects I didn't want, so that is a bad on my part. I will reconsider all of the projects so you get your points back. The only problem is that I lose double points for reconsidering. So I am going to try to submit a support ticket first to see if they can just undue the rejections. If not, I will go back and reconsider all of them and take the point hit onto myself. As Gloria pointed out, this is your livelihood and I am just an occasional user so the points are more valuable to you. Please give me a little time to try to go though the support route and if that doesn't work I will just reconsider all of the projects I rejected. Thanks for your understanding and sorry for the problems my lack of knowledge has caused you.

      Thank you very much ! It's a stupid rule, it could be useful if the rejected design is a fake or an abuse of copyright but if it's our own work they couldn't leave us so much points... 10 for each design... Me too, I've understood the rule seeing my points falling down... It's freelancer that must put this rule in a big font in front of everybody. Thank for the opportunity and good luck with your hay :) Best Regards

      Thanks Gloria. If they had a warning notice that popped up when I clicked "reject" that says this action will take points away from the Freelancer, it would have helped. I hope others write to them about this. I already filed my complaint. I wonder how often this happens because the CH doesn't know it will hurt someone. All the best.

    Ok guys, support would do nothing so I just went in and took the point hit. I probably dropped a couple of levels, but it was my bad. You all might want to send a note to Freelancer.com telling them about this flaw in their points system. Essentially, it allows someone to steal points from you... just as I did inadvertantly. Please let me know if you didn't get all of your points back.

    I'm a student, I work here just for my porfolio and to learn something about my future job... Rejecting designs freelancers lost a lot of points, and with them we can found more opportunities. If you vote 4 stars and I work for you making changes, spending my time, why do you change your idea ? I have lost 1 level... If we are not the winner the rating is our only kind of payment for our time and our work ! It's a lack of humanity towards those who work hard !

    Guys, I'm liking a lot of the new designs, however some of you haven't read the whole project brief. There are quite a few submissions that are missing certain elements such as the panel for the lower flap, etc. Make sure your submissions meet the requirements. Thanks.

    Hello, firstly, please disreagrd #40. I had to make an entry in order to privately ask a question.
    Question, is this contest for the design of a logo and packaging? Are you judging both?
    If so, what happens if you like the logo but not the packaging (or vice versa)?
    Additionally, is the 'Coastal' logo contest to be concluded and that logo used for the packaging?
    Thanks.

      This contest is independent of all previous contests. This contest is for both the logo and package.
