Moderated Re: WAC Award

You may be right. I have no inside information about the system. It does seem there have been times that people have complained about response but it may have been for other reasons. I was not talking about an award or two. I was responding to the request for a general unlimited award process with am open API.


In any case the real problem is more likely to be development and test resources. 😊

This would never work without more hardware

+ Of course adding new functionality and new users can't go on forever without adding capacity, but with major post-contest submission surges being processed within a couple of hours, I suspect there's capacity for another popular award or two.
