We’d like to provide a really open HAM community trusted Contest Online Score Board server with the following policies:
– International Team of HAMs based in North America
– Following HAM community wishes. Adding, removing new features, options, technologies etc.
– Providing service not only for major contests but for small local communities’ events as well
– 100% online reliable service. The score board server environment designed to be ready for needed we can assign few dedicated servers in a cluster for the project)
– True 3830 style categories boards. All the scores splitted by the 3830 categories: Single Op HP, Single Op LP, Single Op HP(A) etc.
– Server side scripts are “light” as much as possible providing fast upload and online score publishing web services
– Simple as possible online score result table with an optimized minimal number of tools
– Serving multiple contests simultaneously. ( for example AA DX CW Contest, Ukrainian DX Classic RTTY Contest, Stew Perry Topband Challenge and some other contests in the same time).
– User defined contests. Every user could create a new contest and to invite friends to run kind of “small village” mini contests. (This feature is planned for a next release)
– Private rooms. Imagine if some local club guys want to run a team competition in a contest and their members are going to upload score but they wish to limit access to their scores only to group members having some kind of access key – PIN number.
