    As I flip through the various forums on QRZ, I am surprised that there isn't a discussion forum for contesting. Whether any of us are "pro" or "con" with respect to contesting, it represents a huge proportion of on-air activity, especially on HF. So I'm wondering if anybody knows why there is no discussion forum devoted to contesting?

    There is a forum called "Contesting" in the "News" section, and there is a forum subsection called "Logging and Contesting" but it doesn't have any actual contesting forums in it. Having a "contesting" forum in the "discussion" section might be an amazingly active place. There are contest-related threads that pop up in this ("ham radio discussions") forum quite regularly.

    What say ye? Would you be interested in having a contest-specific forum on QRZ?

    Probably because after the first few posts in any thread the haters would show up and derail any discussion.

    You're talking about creating a virtual Garden of Eden paradise for Burt. I'm not sure if any one person deserves to have that much pleasure.

    Maybe, but that happens everywhere else, too. I even see it in the technical forums. Maybe especially in the technical forums.

    I wondered about that. It might turn out the way you say -- I was trying to stay positive and assume that people like that would just say clear since the subject matter wasn't their thing. :cool:

    Sounds like you are trying to appoint me as Lead Troll. ;)

    Thanks, but I'm happy to stay at the amateur level on that one. :cool:

    No, just a general observation and comment. :)

    No. You'll make a good volunteer to keep the miscreant trolls at bay. :)
    We need someone bad. Are you bad? :p:rolleyes:
