4-Questions, Answers, and the Review Process
Matchmaticians.com is an online venue where users ask and/or answer mathematics questions. The questioner chooses a deadline and offers a bounty for receiving a complete answer before the due date. The answerer who accepts to answer the question is solely responsible for submitting a complete answer before the due date. Funds will be put on hold in both the questioner’s and the answerer’s Matchmaticians accounts and will be released once the answer is reviewed by the questioner or a Matchmaticians judge (website moderator). After the answer is received, the questioner has 7 days to review, accept or dispute the answer. If the answer is disputed, a Matchmaticians judge will review the answer and make a final decision on completeness and accuracy of the answer. If the Matchmaticians judge decides that the answer is not 100% complete, the questioner will receive a compensation and the answerer may lose a part or all of their deposit based on the judge’s evaluations of the completeness of the answer (see https://matchmaticians.com/how-it-works for more details). You understand that once you submit a question or an answer, you can not delete, edit, or cancel it.
Matchmaticians judges will be strict in evaluating the quality of the disputed answers and will follow the general guidelines at https://matchmaticians.com/how-it-works (Table 3). After the judicial review is completed, it is final and may not be disputed by either of the parties (the questioner or answerer).

The Add Credit and the Cash Out Process
In order to use Matchmaticians Services, you need to deposit funds from your Paypal account, your credit card, or your debit cards to your Matchmaticians account. Matchmaticians uses third party Services for such financial transactions. Transaction fees will be included in your payments to cover third party transaction fees.

You are responsible to pay such transaction fees. You agree and understand that if the third party transaction fees are higher than the expected transaction fees estimated by Matchmaticians, then the funds transferred to your Matchmaticians account (when using Add Credit feature) or your Paypal account (when using Cash Out feature) may be lower than the expected amount, because of the higher transaction fees charged by third party financial services. We do not target users outside of the United States of America and if you use a Non-US paypal account or a Non-US credit or debit card, then third party transaction fees may be higher than the expected transactions fees estimated by Matchmaticians, and consequently the funds transferred to your Matchmaticians account (when using Add Credit feature) or your paypal account (when using Cash Out feature), may be lower, because of the higher transaction fees charged by third party financial services. When using Cash Out feature, Paypal may require you to confirm your email address, you Paypal account, or the transaction by sending you an email, within a limited time frame. You are solely responsible for such confirmations, and you understand and agree that your lack of response for such emails may result in expiration of such transactions and your loss of the transferred funds.
