    The 2007 SitePoint Community Awards Winners!

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the SitePoint Community Forums proudly present...

    The 2007 SitePoint
    Community Awards Winners



    Yes, I know the task was arduous: so many awards, so many threads to go back and re-read, too many mosquitoes with an immunity to deet, a painful nomination form, polls that (almost) spoiled the surprise, and the occasional mauling by panther. But the journey is over and we've all survived.

    Each of the winners will ultimately receive a maximum of 2 award badges, which will be placed above their avatars until the next awards process next year. The badges will be created and installed in a couple of weeks.

    Those who won more than 2 awards will be contacted by PM to select which 2 awards they would like to receive. Using the poll numbers as a guide, the staff will then assign the remaining awards to other nominees.

    And the winners are...

    Thank you much Carl, what a marathon for you.

    Congratulations to all members who were nominated and to all who in the end won the votes.

    For myself: Thank you all so very much for giving me this overwhelming amount of enthusiasm. I truly appreciate this and will proudly wear my two ribbons, for we can only have two

    Congrats indeed to all the winners, and to whoever nominated me and to those who voted for me as well a sincere thanks all around.

    I am by no means a Flash guru, but I do appreciate the award! The real gurus are (in no particular order) krityx, rabies, stevewebdev and to the newer members that I do not recognize that have also been helpful in the Flash forum.

    Congratulations to everyone! Enjoy your badges (when they are ready, of course)

    edit:

    to whoever who nominated me, and to those who voted for me: a big thank you. I think that next year I will have to work much harder to be worthy for this . Good luck to you all.

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    Plus let me also give a thank you also to the runners up and everyone else that provides the valuable help and support on these forums. It's very comforting to know that there is always an answer or advice here somewhere from some very talented people.

    Ok, enough soppiness, I'm back to the latest posts

    I must agree with felgall, This list really shows how just how rich the Sitepoint Community is. All awards are very well deserved!

    congrats to all winners. "better luck next time" to nominees who didn't win, making that nomination list is still some achievement. special congrats to Thing for successfully defending the ASP Guru award.

    umm, I pop in now & then, so excuse my ignorance but weren't the rules of this year's contest state that "longneck" couldn't be nominated for any award(rule #7) & a member can win only 2 awards at most(rule #3)?
