    2008 SitePoint Community Award Winners

    After the dust has settled and all the votes counted, here are the results that you, the SitePoint community, have named as your 2008 Community Award winners.

    What will the winners receive? Starting in January, a shiny badge made this year by Varelse shall adorn every post they make for the year 2009, and the feeling of satisfaction that someone loves them (OK, voted for them)

    And so (drumroll please), the 2008 SPF Community Award winners are.....

    Blogger of the Year - Bleys
    Content Writer of the Year - ShyFlower
    Community Builder of the Year - iFroggy
    Multimediac of the Year - armchaircritic

    CSS Guru of the Year - Raffles
    (X)HTML Guru of the Year - cooper.semantics
    Graphic Design Guru of the Year - Datura
    Design Guru of the Year - Dan Schulz

    PHP Guru of the Year - php_daemon
    Javascript Guru of the Year - felgall
    Programming Guru of the Year - StormRider
    Software Guru of the Year - dhtmlgod
    (oh, and the final vote for r937 and longneck bowing out of Database Guru? Good call!)

    Web Hosting Guru of the Year - ldcdc
    Server Guru of the Year - wwb_99
    Apache Guru of the Year - dklynn
    Domain Guru of the Year - linkin99

    SEO Guru of the Year - Dan Schulz
    Marketing Guru of the Year - Dan Grossman
    eCommerce Guru of the Year - beley
    Business Guru of the Year - Sagewing
    Ad & Affiliate of the Year - Dan Grossman

    Computer Helper of the Year - felgall

    And last but certainly not least

    Staff Member of the Year - r937

    and

    Member of the Year - Shaun(OfTheDead)


    Congratulations to all of the participants of this years awards process, and congratulations go to our winners, especially our staff member of the year and our member of the year!




    Also, I'd like to recognize the SPF staff who made this years nomination process flow. Without their efforts, the awards process wouldn't have worked as well as it did. Each of these people helped to develop the process for this years nominations, helped to work out contingency plans, contacted nominees to see if they wanted to be eligible. All the grunt work which makes these kinds of things fun. In no particular order (mostly me trying to make sure I don't forget anyone - if I did, I apologize)....

    I bet some of you are wondering who won the kits. Well, I'll tell you now...we took all the entries, and went over them with a fine tooth comb. We eliminated all those that couldn't follow instructions, and then took the rest, put them into the randomizer a dozen times, and the winners of the kits are....

    Congratulations all you guys. And thanks a bunch to recognize my contributions.

    Where would this forum be without all the willing helpers that give so much of their time to help us all out. I look at this as a give and take. I gladly pay with what I know to learn from the ones who know the things I do not know. What a wonderful system this is.

    And Shaun: surprise

    I think that you are L'Oreal woman, Datura... you earn things "because you worth it"

    PS: of course, all the winners worth it as many other members in the forum too... but I simply couldn't help myself to answer to Datura

    Thanks for your votes everyone - I didn't think I had a chance in hell of winning anything given some of the people I was up against, I'm a bit shocked!

    Well done to everyone else, they are all well deserved!
