Re: Uploading to the Award Checker
David, the checker will work fine for numbers >2787, except
for the LONP awards.
The checker doing the LONP requires access to a Google
Spreadsheet that contains all member information. For every
submission, it would go and check the sheet to see if any changes
had been made, and if so, built a new file to compare the logs
against. The link to the spreadsheet no longer works due to
Google deprecating the API, and us not having access to the source
code to fix it. Therefore, it cannot build a new file, and
retains the one that it had previously built and uses it to
compare logs. We quickly learned that the API quit working at
#2786, and that is why anyone with a >2786 member number does
not get recognized for LONP purposes. It also means that those
of us that have contacts with members >2786 have to submit to
N6MG for confirmation and credit.
There is a new endorsement checker in progress, but, it is a tremendously huge program, (to allow for checking for ALL endorsements), and is being done by a volunteer in his spare time, while juggling, work, family, and pursuit of a masters degree.
It is a very slow process.
