getscores.org adds a completely new dimension to contesting- the fun of real-time contesting. In addition, getscores.org motivates individuals and teams to do better and try harder to outrun or catch up with the leader.
For example, during CQWW RTTY, the W1UE @ K1LZ (M/S) team decided to compete with K1SFA @ K1TTT (M/M) on the basis of multipliers. We not only had a blast, but also worked so much harder! Have had the same experience on quite a few occasions at K1TTT.
IMHO, the more contesters do real-time posting, the more fun the contest will be for all participants. I bet scores will go up, records will be broken, and the publishers will have more to write about.
