Welcome to the 2014 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards


Welcome to the 2014 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards. The categories have been chosen, the nominees have been posted and I'm happy to announce that the polls are now open. To vote, visit http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ce-awards-113/ and select your entry in each category. If you have any suggestions for additions or modifications to poll nominees, please post in the thread for the poll in question. Any general suggestions should be posted in this thread.

A couple comments:

* We do realize that some polls have nominees that are not directly comparable. There are already over 30 polls. If we got down to the granularity some members would like to see, there would be 100's if not 1000's of polls. That would be a net decline in the usefulness of the awards IMHO. We try to strike the best balance we can, and do modify the polls and nominees every year, based on feedback. If you have any suggestions on how the polls can be improved, do let us know.

* There are no set in stone guidelines for voting. Our recommendation is to base your vote on which application you found most valuable to you in 2014, along with which project you feel made the largest improvements in 2014. That being said, in the end the criteria is up to you.

* Posting a comment is optional, but do be aware that for your vote to count you have to select an option and click the "Vote Now" button (regardless of whether you have left a comment or not).

* You must have at least one post to be able to vote.

* All polls will close on February 3rd at 12PM LQST.

Congratulations to all nominees and good luck!

Suggestion:

If you particularly like whatever you are voting for....

* write a few words on why you like it so much,
* compare it (if you can) to the competition that you have tried,
* and also add links for others to find out more about the package you like so much.

One of my favorite things about the poll is finding new possibly better apps that I was unaware of.

Audio and Video Editing apps were MCA categories for many years, but were removed due to lack of participation and lopsided results. You can browse the previous MCA's to see the results.

I would like to see a CMS category. I have boon using Joomla now for about 5 years for CMS, but I also find it much better to use for my Websites as well.

Open Source CMS was an MCA category for the last few years, but were removed due to lack of participation and lopsided results. You can browse the previous MCA's to see the results.

Maybe there should be a poll for "What category that got poor participation and lopsided results in previous years, and was removed from MCA categories, would you like to see returned?"

K3B?

Hello, Jeremy and community!

Good to know the Linux Member Choice Awards is here again.

I made some votes here and there, based in good applications/distributions/whatever I use everyday, rather than stepping into any listed category. But one of these applications which I'd like to give a vote but haven't found anywhere, and that still rocks, is K3B. Is there any category K3B is in, or where could it be included?

Anyway, burn CDs and DVDs may also be a thing of the past. I may be getting older.

Congratulations,

Luiz
