Spectators are not allowed? Isn’t that one of the major reasons for the online scoreboard, so non-participants can observe the action?
That _is_ the entire purpose for the WRTC online scoreboard, and one that many folks use.

I agree that it's sort of strange, as K5ZD noted, to sit there alone and work hard for a long period and not have any indication of relative standing, etc. So for those for whom that's imperative, let there be such a category. Call it "Active Scoreboard," or akin to that, and the operator can be either "Assisted" or "Non-Assisted" based on his/her (morals and) preference. But don't make this mandatory. For me, if Real-Time Scoreboard is absolutely required for participation, the sport will lose me, for better or worse.

>>> Totally agree with Steve. Thatâ€™s happened specially during WRTC qualification contest. It is time to include in the rules â€œthe station must publish score during the contestâ€� so less hopping categories after the contest. Today it is no problem to connect internet from anywhere in the world like 20 years ago, it is time to do some more changes.

After encouraging folks to post their scores, I can choose to not post my score. Thus, I have real-time knowledge about the competition that they don't have about me. This is not true in any other sport. > > 73, > Steve, N2IC > >> On 11/20/2018 11:50 AM, Bill via CQ-Contest wrote: >> With contest final results taking so long to come out, contestonlinescore.com >> and 3830scores.com have become the defacto contest results for me.
