Welcome to the 2019 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards


Welcome to the 2019 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-129/ 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 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.

* 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 2019, along with which project you feel made the largest improvements in 2019. 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 12th at 12PM LQST.

* Results are not available until after the polls close.

Congratulations to all nominees and good luck!

I like the way you did it this year except there wasn't an E-mail notification.

Voted. Even in polls where my suggestions were not added.
The "non-comparability" is a bottleneck in the 2019 LQMCA as well, as long as there are no multiple choices...

Just a thought...voting, then repeating your choice In a post adds nothing to the process and clutters the forum, IMO.
Certainly not “wrong,” just irritating (to me)

I wish if only we had a vote about the display managers the LQ members use the most.

I think if next year or end of this year we could have a voting process up and running for all the LQ members to vote what display manager they use the most that would be nice.

I have used GDM, KDM and LightDM. I like LightDM the most. Because it doesn't take up much resource and loads and executes very fast even when CPU power is not that good. Please kindly don't take any offense, users of other display managers. I have nothing against other display managers. I just like lightdm for simplicity. That is all.


Thank you very much and May God bless you all LQ members.

Smile Good idea

Requiring a post to keep out chaff is good idea.
Says newbie, but been using Unix/Linux since 1990.
