Congratulations to all that participated, and thanks to all that voted!

oh, and I almost forgot - congratulations to the five winners of the $200 SPF gift certificates. They were drawn from random from the list that finished the voting, and had their email addresses verified (there were a couple which got disqualified because they didn’t know their own email addresses). The winners are…

  • AndrewCooper

Congratulations everyone.

Congratulations to all!

I can’t wait to see you sporting those shiny new badges.


Congratulations to all winners, and thank you for giving me a shiny badge again :slight_smile:

A lot of people contribute here on SitePoint, I am so very grateful for the knowledge that is given so freely by you all, I have learned from all members really. The people who are asking the questions are important to this forum as well, and often one question leads to the next answer that solves another question.

So to all members: thank you :slight_smile:
And to SitePoint: thank you for making this all possible :slight_smile:
To Dave: a huge thank you for doing all this :slight_smile:

Congratulations everyone! :smiley:

Congrats to all the winners!!!

Thanks to those who took the time to nominate/vote, and finally thanks to whoever nominated me and to those that voted for me also. :smiley:

Congrats everyone. Well deserved winners.

SitePoint rocks.

Congratulation to all the winners. Also those lucky nominees too.
Cheers :slight_smile:

Congratulations everyone!!! And expecting everyone’s continuous contribution to the SPF in the year ahead too.

Sitepoint rocks!!!

Wow, big congrats everyone!

Excellent, excellent news indeed. :smiley:

I think a huge big thanks goes to everyone! To all who participated in the nominations/voting, and also to Dave for organising it behind the scenes.

Congrats to all the winners and runners up. :tup:

Congratulations everyone :slight_smile:

Congrats everyone :slight_smile:
It is always good to start the new year with some motivation :slight_smile:
@Dave: :tup:
I will try to finish off the badges this week :slight_smile:

Congrats to everyone, esp logic_earth, PHP Guru well deserved.

And big thanks to those of you that nominated me for that too.

I can only think you must have been really short of candidates - I was really shocked.

“It is in giving we receive” is doubly true on Sitepoint, and has up to now at least, been the only way I have felt able to “give something back” to the OSS community which has changed my life so much for the better.

Last year I was nominated for Community Spirit award too - for both nominations I feel really proud and humbled.

Happy new year to all.

My Kudos to all the winners… Keep it coming


Congratulations to all the winners and a big thanks to Dave for all the work involved:)
