If not, or maybe if so, Can you create a generic contest logger that can be allows the users to set the terms.
Pardon my ignorance here...I noticed that NC QSO party ignores software points and calculates them itself. Are other contests requiring the contestants to submit their total scores, multipliers etc.?
The State QSO party software is similar to most contests except for the unique list of counties. But, the duplicate checker, the countries list, the list of states showing up are a great start towards a generic contest logger.
Some contests, like the QSOPs do have a unique list of counties, but what about FD, RTTY, etc.? Most of the actual contact entries are similar:
Unique states, unique prefixes, unique reports, serial numbers, etc.
Some of the smaller contests I've seen just require a user to fill in their personal information and then just upload a log with the fields they require.
If the user can edit the field names for the ADIF file, I think it would be possible to create a generic app that would be suitable for hundreds of little sprints and contests you could never justify writing a unique app for.
It's just a thought. Let me know if I can help in any way.
PS, I already see all the features I'm asking for. There are just some in contest logs and some in ACL.
