    To the contest holder:
    I accidentally withdrew my entry, after working very hard to write it and waiting for weeks to find out if it was chosen. I was browsing Freelancer.com on my phone and it is unfortunately EXTREMELY easy to withdraw your entry by accident when using a phone to view your entry.
    It is also non-reversible.
    So, in your own best interest, I kindly ask that you send me a message so that I get considered. I would accept a lower fee in this case, clearly.

    Just to point out: I reached out to the platform support team immediately, but to no avail.
