Have you voted for the Plugin Competition yet?

August 5th, 2008
WordPress Plugin Competition, WordPress Plugins

About 10 days back we announced that user voting has been opened up for the plugins in the WordPress Plugin Competition.

As of this post, the various plugins have received over 960 votes.

While this may seem to be a sizable number, it also means that many of our visitors have still not given their votes to their favorite plugins. Remember that there is a lot at stake in this competition and it would do justice for the plugin authors to receive your esteemed vote!

Meanwhile, our judges are busy testing and evaluating the plugins and we should have the results pretty soon.

Have you placed your vote yet? If not, then hurry before the voting closes!

    I had been enjoying my excursion into the land of WordPress until this competition with its vague and changing rules … I am seeing what a waste land can be created by a few numb skulls. I am sure this comment is useless … so I end it here.

    I think the time to check every plugin is the bigger issue on voting. I’ve seen a lot of them, but testing properly is a whole different story.

    @noroho, I agree with you that testing all those plugins is expecting a lot from users.The judges will be the best bet.They can download the latest of these plugins , test them and vote for them.

    however users can contribute by voting for plugins that they find useful for them.i believe and hope that the the judges votes carry more weightage than the users. Users can atbest vote only for plugins that they find useful and for plugin authors that they know and like.. :)

    There are so many things to do on the Net that few people have the inclination to be guinea pigs to others. And even if they are curious themselves, their effort is not usable. One solution is to have Captains for various aspects. So there is a Captain for a certain type of plugins, then he or she can test these out for self and for us. Captains don’t get paid but they do get prominence as incentive for their effort.

        very cool… Can you limit people to one vote per category with that plugin?

        • Ajay (209 comments.) says:

          The plugin checks by IP and cookies. However, you can’t limit to one vote per category
