Best of WordPress, WordPress

The 2010 WordPress Honors launched earlier this week and is currently seeking submissions and votes for your favorite WordPress plugins, themes, sites, and personalities.

Final voting will begin once the nominees have beenĀ announced in mid November, and the winners will be announced in early January.

What’s your take on award ceremonies like this? Will WPHonors show the best that the WordPress community has to offer, or will this be just another popularity content?

    Anything voted on by the public will always be a popularity contest, rather than a true indication of how good any particular thing is. E.g. I think SugarSync is better than DropBox, but DropBox is much better known and hence more popular and therefore gets more third party developer support.

    That’s just the nature of the beast.

    I will certainly vote for weblogtoolscollection.com if it’s there.

    I’ll vote for weblog, also a couple of super cool themes I have often used over the years for sure. I don’t think it’s as much a popularity contest online though, just good solid content.

    Great idea, those great authors of themes and plugins should be awarded.

  4. Zoran (2 comments.) says:

    The “best” is a subjective term and “popularity contest”, kind of, have a negative connotation attached to it. That aside, I believe every effort like this is going to help in establishing and affirming WP community. I also think it can’t hurt WordPress. I’m saying this because WP insisted on a disclaimer saying that it is not affiliated with the idea in any way. Why not?
