This rule of removing WRTC points for 'late log' was added recently. I can't
see if this is a good practice to update rules while qualification race is

I sent my log few hours after the deadline, HOWEVER: I'm compliant with WPX
rules, my log is valid, my QSOs are confirmed, my score is listed (was not
re-classified as a Checklog!). I simply won't receive a paper certificate.
This is very disappointing that I'm punished two times.

Appreciate the efforts you are doing to make WRTC2018 a successful event!
