Does my project need to stay in Crew now that I hired someone?

Yes! Apart from helping us keep the lights on and achieving our vision alive of helping members and project owners produce awesome work, the Crew platform enables our ability to cover you if anything happens with your payment or any issue comes up during the project.

If a project is taken off Crew, we can no longer offer this protection. Project owners will run the risk of losing their funds (who feels like chasing down work that was paid for?), and not to sound like parents, but if we find out that work has been taken outside of Crew, we’ll close the account of both parties. For members, this also means that they will no longer have access to Crew’s awesome stream of vetted projects.
