Once you submit a request it will be reviewed by
editors within minutes and posted to the Project
Board. Project requests are reviewed to ensure accuracy and restrict
specific information from public view.
For example, if you post that your current website
is www.yoursite.com, the editors will pass that information on to
the providers while restricting it from public view. The policy
protects your information and prevents any unwanted solicitations
from unauthorized companies or individuals.
The public project board is primarily for buyers who
want to check their project without logging in, or buyers wanting to
see comparable projects. Providers also use the board to take a
quick look at available requests.
When you view a public project page, only the first
few sentences of the provider's bid are displayed. Primary bid
information is kept confidential between the buyer and provider. The
policy helps to protect a provider's proprietary service information
and ensure the buyer receives a comprehensive bid proposal.
To view the complete description of each bid for
your own project, you can read the bids you receive via email, or login
and view the complete list of all bids online for easier comparison.
Logging in to view all of the bids also puts each provider's
portfolio just a click away.
To view a provider's
portfolio, simply click the company name. On the following page
you see a complete company description, and a list of projects with
links to each portfolio example.

Submission Tips and are still looking for further ideas or examples,

Requests are posted to the project board for a
maximum of 14 days, however, most projects receive dozens of bids
within the first 24-48 hours. If you select the provider before the
project automatically terminates, you can login and delete the
