A new qrz.com discussion

Today I started a new discussion on the qrz.com forum:

I tried to get my information into the qrz.com database some time ago. But as a SWL that is not allowed......
I saw that again on the forum lately with a question from another SWL. The answer was simple and short: You must be a licensed radio amateur.
I'm a registered radio amateur with only one limitation: I'm not allowed to transmit.
But why I'm not allowed into the qrz.com database? I think it's more needed for a SWL to be in the qrz.com database than it is for a licensed radio amateur. The reason is simple: As a SWL I can't tell my information to other radio amateurs on the bands.
And when I did a little check on a few SWL callsigns today I found out that 25 percent of them is in the qrz.com database! That means that the answer moderator N9YB gave on august 5 in this tread is not true!
I started this discussion to support al the SWL's around the world who would like to get their information in the qrz.com database.
So I have a simple question to the staff and the founder of qrz.com: Please change your policy, just as you did with the radio amateurs from Northern Cyprus (1B1)!

Hello Dear Ellmar !
I did not read yet the thread at Qrz.com , a'will read it in the morning , but i can tell you that me and at least other 6 SWLs that i know , are in the Database !
I have no licence .... :-)) yet...
Now , i remember that when i tried at first time to register there , i was trying to use 4X4-2238 !
That was not allowed ! but when i tried 4X42238 it was ok...strange huh ?
On Dxwatch.com it is the same !
I Could'nt register there as 4X4-2238 and i am there as 4X4SWL...
errrr....well , i think SWLs should be on the databse !
We are sending QSLs excactly as licensed hams , and we are participating in contests so why not to be listed there ?
I will comment on your topic in the morning...
Do not worry Ellmar , many amateurs still likes us....heheh
