What happened to plans to incorporate a "score-sharing" feature in CT?
A new screen (a a ALT-M multiplier or the Help screen) would be added.
Within this window one can see the scores of up to six (or so) other
competitors who you want to benchmark against, and who areaccesible
via the Cluster network.
At the start of the contest you specify the calls of the stations you
want to see during the contest.
If those stations are on the cluster network, and the operator there has
also entered your callsign into the score-sharing screen, then both will
exchange periodic updates on score-to-date (e.g., every 20 minutes, starting
at 10 minutes after the hour to avoid colliding with disk autosaves and
When viewing the window, the update which you sent out at the last update
interval will also be displayed, so that you can see how you were doing
I'd love to try this in one contest to get that race-adrenalin rush from trying
to stay ahead or catch up to someone else who is in my operating class and has
a similar station...
