Appalling : what happened to my app?


I have submitted ClisMap - Clinical Trials Finder and I can't find it in the list of submissions.

What happened to my submission and why it's not listed?

    Clinical Trials Finder - ClisMap might not be the best app in this list, but I'm very disappointed at this injustice.

    at least they could post the links to the homepages if they don't want to do the work of creating pages for each entry.

    Thank you for the reply Keith.

    For the admins out there: I want to remove myself from the list of supporters of this challenge. I regret that I have supported this challenge.

    maybe we could ask everyone who submitted an app to list their link here and then we can repost the list somewhere..

    Sure, sounds good. I would be interested to check all the apps submitted. Please feel free to post it here or create a new discussion. Thank you.

    For what it's worth, I don't think the NLM moderators read this forum. I posted something a month ago that never received a response. I mailed the challenge technical support email on the main page and received a response from the NLM fairly quickly. You may want to try that. There is also an email associated with this challenge listed on the NLMs website: NLMDataChallenge@nlm.nih.gov

    I suspect this is less to do with intentional snubbing, and more that they messed up and didn't do what was required to publish all entries. It is unusual for a challenge to not display all entires here.

    I'd like to see all the entires, too.

    yeah, good point.. i emailed several NLM email addresses to request the submitted apps be listed.

    The rules stated that winning apps would be posted on the NLM and challenge.gov web sites.

    if you look at http://fluapp.challenge.gov/submissions

    they have 9 winners and 96 submissions.. that you can actually look at.

    Thank you Phillip. These were very different sets of rules compared to other challenges at challenge.gov. But my understanding was that Honorable Mentions Submission will be posted as an Honorable Mention on the Challenge.gov and NLM Web Sites. For all other challenges, Submissions tab included all the submissions including the ones without Honorable Mentions. Also, yesterday Submissions tab included 10 submissions with no WINNER logo. After waiting for 8 hours to see who were the Winners, it was very disappointing to see only selected few listed there.
