I understand the shortcomings of the original version concerning serious contesting (e.g. your exchange with KK4CHM). However, there are contesters (with awards granted and credits given) and non-contesters currently using the system. Given my location and budget, I never plan to be a serious contester. So with the "novelty" factor as you put it removed (and I disagree that V1 was just a novelty), V2 becomes a contesting system focused primarily on the needs of serious contesters. BTW I have nothing against contesters - I really applaud the hard effort you guys make to win some of the coveted awards and I always respond to a contester if I think I can get to him and give him a credit. But I have no need for another logging program where I can view only my QSO's, both unconfirmed and confirmed, and can't view others who want to share theirs for the sake of curiosity and interest, or for some little local "honor system" mini-contest. I have paper logs, spreadsheets, and several other freeware applications I'm deciding on that can do that already without the trouble of logging into a remote ad-supported database where the rules of how it works can be drastically changed. I don't even need an internet connection to see my own QSO's. So if V2 is really being focused as a contesting system, that's your decision, but I just don't need it and I revert back to my original opening statement: Then I will no longer enter any contacts into the QRZ Logbook. There will be no point. The contesters were polled, and rightly so. But are the non-contesters going to be polled on what they want? The answer will probably be V1 from what all I'm reading here. Interesting to see the results.
