2017 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Award Nominees


In previous years, while soliciting feedback for Members Choice nominees, I have posted the polls but kept voting closed. As this caused confusion on multiple levels and resulted in a high number of "why can't I vote" questions, starting a few years ago we decided to try something new. I am going to post each category as an individual post in this thread. Each post will contain the category name and all nominees. Any feedback, including additions and deletions should be posted in this thread. Please include the category name and your suggestion in each post (ideally one category per post). When it's time to vote, I'll post the polls which will be open immediately when posted. If you have any general feedback on the MCA's, this thread would be appropriate for that as well.
