Kindest thanks for this most useful annual event Mr. Jeremy, sir!

Is there a special reason not to include both vector and raster, as I for instance, use both but for different reasons?

And i really miss an light vector graphics editor the Sodipodi was back in the day?

As stated in the first post: There are over 35 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. NOTE

If we were a forum focused on graphics application, both polls would certainly make sense. As it stands, I'd say rotating makes more sense. Always happy to receive feedback, however

Good point.
Regretfully in the vector graphic "arena" there is little uncertainity, anyway.

I acted really out of my personal need for an lighter vector app. Which is selfish I admit.
My only excuse is, I believe not to be very special, ln this need of mine.

And Jeremy, do please keep up the excellent work with this annual rewards, I find it most invaluable.

Hi.

It would be cool (aside from voting multiple times ) if we had a page linking past (or linked included in) results ie:perspective?

Re-arranged the results, to see:

1) typical user of this website.
2) interests of users here
3) priority of users

Other comments will be in other parts of this site.
