Like last year, we are going to select contributor of the year by voting.
Voting is now in progress and will run until midnight December 31st (Eastern Time).
Voting is open to General Maintainers only. You have to be a General Maintainer to vote, and you have to be one to get voted for.
Here is a link to a list of all the General Maintainers:
You vote for someone by clicking the button that says "Vote for This User" on their user profile page.
How you voted is not visible to other users, but a summary of people who've received votes is available on this page:
You only get to vote for one person; however you can change your vote if you decide to vote for someone else.
This discussion thread is the place to mention good things about your fellow users' contributions in 2011.
Don't be shy. If you have general maintainer stars, cast your vote today!
Lots of good choices this year
I would have guessed there were a lot more general maintainers. Still, there's a lot to choose from.
I see some general maintainers that do not have a vote yet.
...who deserve this honor; however, only one will win. Well, maybe two if there is a tie. Good luck everyone.
always needs a vote of appreciation! I'm going to vote right now! Happy New Year everyone!
... From the BEST of the BEST of the BEST?
What a great site this is?
It could be because many who have been voted have only one vote, their own.
I didn't vote for myself.
I didn't vote for myself.
Great for you ScottK1968, I haven't voted yet but don't intend to vote for me, I feel there are other members more deserving of the recognition than myself.
As JM can see who voted for whom, this would be highly embarrassing to vote for yourself.
Embarrassing or not this how I saw it, shortly after the vote began 12 people had voted for 10 maintainers, what a coincidence.
I cannot see how that would correlate to voting for yourself. Am I missing something?
I agree. What I imagine is that there are many deserving folks here in The Factory so in early balloting, many voters are voting for someone who had no votes until theirs was cast--there's nothing to imply to me that many are voting for themselves.
Now I'll confess. I do always vote in local/state/national elections but I sometimes pass by voting for some positions because I'm unfamiliar with the candidates for the office--and I don't want to dilute another voter's ballot who has studied the candidates and made an educated selection. I didn't vote for the COY last year and doubt that I will this year because I have a hard time deciding between POI creators, software gurus, general helpful folks, those who extracted useful information from Garmin and shared the results with us--e.g., rame1012 of .jcv file fame and whoever it was that found the same for the next map version--etc., etc. Sorry, JM, I hope most folks don't think like me and that we'll have active balloting and a great result.
We didn't vote for ourselves.
With only a couple more days remaining for this year's voting, I adjusted the voting summary page to show the leading vote getters.
So if you're a general maintiner and haven't voted yet, please take a moment to cast your vote for contributor of the year.
Also, it's not too late to change your vote if you've previously made a vote.
Great, that's like going back and checking your answers on the SATs, wondering if you made the right choice, agonizing over whether to change your mind...
and changed the answers, I was correct the first time.
