Hi Barry:

Personally, I don't need ANOTHER web site or bulletin board I have to check.  The "push" interface is much easier for me to deal with for all the Ham Radio reflectors I monitor.

Sorry to interrupt the "please copy" discussion, but...

I wonder what everyone thinks about transitioning this 1980s-style email 
list over to a modern web-based forum format such as vBulletin?

-Real-time posting, so that someone's question doesn't get 15 almost 
identical replies caused by the multi-hour delay from the time a post is 
made until it is approved for distribution
-An easier way to follow a topic, seeing all previous, relevant posts on 
the topic in a logical sequence
-An easier way to follow a topic, as each subject is in its own thread
-Easy access to archives and search
-Ability to easily skip threads/posts that don't interest you.

With all the tech-savvy people that participate here, I'm surprised this 
hasn't been addressed before, or has it?  The 3830scores web site was a 
great improvement over the earlier 3830 list.  Why not the same for 
cq-contest - your thoughts?
