Welcome to the 2021 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards


Welcome to the 2021 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 https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ce-awards-133/ 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 over 40 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 2021, along with which project you feel made the largest improvements in 2021. 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 15th at 12PM LQST.

* Results are not available until after the polls close.

Congratulations to all nominees and good luck!

I simply vote for the apps that I use and have been using for years. I suspect most other people are going to do the same.

If it ain't broke, why fix it?

Well, if we didn't, there wouldn't be many responses to this survey.

Anytime I use what is not on the list. I try and supply a good link and explanation on my preferred actions.

Glad you run these; it reminds me to check in here! Like Hazel says (hi, Hazel!) most folks will just vote for what they use, but we think it's best or we wouldn't use it!


So while I was here I went wandering the top right menu, specifically
Distro Reviews
which goes to
https://www.linuxquestions.org/reviews/index.php/cat/2
and produces this error:

403 Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /reviews/index.php/cat/2 on this server.

I broke it.

Question I can't vote - the error message does not seem to fit for me

Hi,

this is what i get when trying to vote:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.


to 1) can't say, but my first post was actually today (this is the second so :-))
to 2) i can access my profile page and there's no hint that my account seems to be disabled

Can anyone help please

Maybe the restriction "You must have at least one post to be able to vote" is actually stricter and/or involves a date check too?

That would explain some of the zero-content responses from new accounts that simply repeat an option (like these).

I think only Jeremy can confirm if such limitations are in place, but in the meantime if you can find a way to constructively make a total of 5/10 posts then try voting again?

There is no date check, but do note there is a small gap between clicking submit on your first vote and being able to vote.

That's unfortunate. LO would win hands down, no doubt.
