Re: New file uploaded to 070

Zoltan Bordas <borzol@...>
 

Erika,

I posted a message on the mailing list BEFORE the notification regarding the
Rules file uploading. I included in that message the whole rules of the
contest (so is absolutely no state secret, hi hi - I am thinking how to
popularize it as much as is possible), but only in plain text format in
order to keep the message as small as possible, having in mind other's
access to the list, which maybe costs more if the message is large.
I have permanent connection at the office, so for me message size is not a
problem. As the formatting in plain text format is almost none, and I like
documents formatted with minimal aspect in order to be more intuitive, I
uploaded the file in Microsoft Word format, and who want to access it, is
more pleasant to read. And I uploaded and not attached to the message
because since few weeks attachments are not permitted. Why? To avoid virus
infections. Why? Because not everybody has or wants to have an antivirus
program installed on his computer.

I think an antivirus is a MUST on every computer connected to the net. It is
so "hard" to afford about $50 for this? I understood this few years ago, and
believe me, for us in YO (and maybe in other part of the world too) this is
more expensive (relative to other costs/incomes). But is much cheap compared
to an eventually data loss...

In final: I like very much the attachment capability of emailing but if this
is disabled, we use what we can... I don't know what is your problem,
because as I said before, I subscribed once to yahoo and had no problem
since then accessing files section.

So, again - everybody is welcome to the contest!

Take it as you want, but the rules for a contest aren't a state secret, if
you want that someone is taking part you must keep the rules accessible or
am I wrong?

Thanks Zoli,
but anyway I don't understand why this new way is used. I'm not ready to
leave every time I log in two e-mail adresses, I get already enough rubbish
sent without that, from offers for breast enlargement to how to waste my
nonexisting fortune. If it is not possible to get the information the old
way then forget it, I will not take part.

That would be fine Jay - PSKFEST is a standard-rules contest
and would benefit from such a change. Of course only the big
squares would count as multipliers, just like in the VHF
programs (KM18UA and KM18UX count both for KM18 and so on).

Hi All,
Why don't we throw counties in for the county hunters. Maybe draw some MARAC
members into the mix too.

I like the idea of a combined contest, and I don't think there are to many
tests. Each of them gives me a good excuse to get on the air.

Re: Your thoughts...

Since you asked ..... Grid squares .... I am neutral - if some want to collect them for an award ... that's OK.
Not in favor of requiring any additional information to be transmitted in the PSKFest exchanges.

Tom, k3psk
What would you guys say to the idea of modifying the PSKFest to accomodate
the grid square hunters and the prefix hunters as well? There are a couple
different ways to do it, but I think it would not be too difficult to do.

Re: Your thoughts...

Jay -

If you decide to add some extra categories to PSKfest, like prefixes
or grids, I'd be glad to help Steve N6YIH with the load, like taking on
one or two of the categories for scoring review and posting.

After all, I was one who was suggesting a DPX contest a few months
ago. :-)

On the subject of contesting, there are some who just can't get
enough of
contests, while there are others who say we have too many contests
already. What would you guys say to the idea of modifying the PSKFest
to accomodate the grid square hunters and the prefix hunters as well?

I like the contests, but find I can't take the time to enter them all
seriously.

The idea of a combined contest sounds interesting. Let's kick
around some ideas.

1. Would participants be able to enter more than one category?

2. The exchange would have to include enough info for all
categories, like SPC plus grid square.

3. Or could grid-hunters use a grid square that was looked-up on a
web site like QRZ or WM7D (for US stations)?

Just a few quick thoughts ... I'm sure more will pop up.

Steve
