    Thanks for the Automatic Post Tagger plugin. I’ve already started using it on my blog. The problem is that so many plugins do the same thing, so it is hard to know which one is best. I would recommend the one above though.

    Each week, there are dozens of new plugins, and hundreds of updated plugins. How did these 4 get chosen? Did they just happen to appear in your dashboard at the right time?

    In its current form, these lists aren’t useful. I can get the same (more) information by just browsing to the plugin directory.

    There’s plenty of low-hanging fruit for making this list MUCH better:

    1. Install and actually test-drive each plugin (even if just for a few minutes).
    2. Give your initial impressions on the functionality, UI, overall level of polish, perceived code quality, etc.
    3. Take a few screenshots.

      They are all based off of what appears in the news forum here:

      This isn’t really the definitive list for anyone to look at, not really sure why it’s still here.

      There are still a few developers out there who prefer to not submit their plugins to the directory, so we use these updates to feature plugins that are submitted directly to us. Some are in the official directory, and some aren’t.

      Each plugin submitted to us gets a quick run through for any security issues and some brief usability testing, so we won’t feature anything that’s a security risk or simply doesn’t work.

      Once that’s done, I supplement the list with any plugins that we’re currently using here or elsewhere.

      In the end, you wind up with a smaller list that’s just plugins submitted directly to us plus our favorites, because (as you said) it’s easier to just browser and if you only want a data dump of what’s in the official directory.
