If only this was still true!

Unfortunately, the editorial policy of QST regarding contest reporting has 
changed significantly. The biggest entry incentives for newer ops (and many of 
us who have no chance of winning any award)--seeing your callsign in genuine 
print--is no longer there.

Relegating the scores to the web site is a poor second choice. Sure, the 
capabilities of web searching and comparison is great, but it completely lacks 
the appeal of ole' fashion "genuine print". We should have BOTH.

Yes there is a detailed list in QST Magazine separately showing each country,
however this also shows each U.S. section so anyone can already see how they
scored against others in their area.
