[CQ-Contest] Holding back your score?

The contest ended just shy of 3 full days ago, and you're already demanding that people turn in their claimed scores?

And you want an 8 hour post-contest deadline?  Why?  What's the rush?  5 days for the logs to be turned in isn't fast enough?

Sorry.  I totally disagree.  Some operators may want to review their logs for OBVIOUS typos or data entry errors, to say nothing of take a break, get a little rest or a bite to eat, say goodbye to their guest ops (in the case of M/S M/2 & M/M stations), visit the family, clean up, pack up to catch a flight... I can think of dozens of legitimate reasons for someone to not immediately upload their claimed scores.

What is the rush?  I just don't get it.

Hi there.

I find it really fishy if you have to hold back your claimed score days after the contest. 

Live score MUST be mandatory for the top scorers these days. It is another level of honesty if you can see live what goes on. 

Holding back you score? Why? Adding mults and qsos? Cleaning log? 

I would like live score mandatory or at least a 8 hour deadline!

Contest is over ..... just sent your log! The skill is what you can do in 48 hours not smartass afterwards.

... my 5 cent to the game.
