Packt Publishing, the company behind many well-known Drupal books, is also responsible for the Open Source Awards, an annual online event held to distinguish excellence among open source projects. Winners of this competition receive cash awards that go to support their projects. Over the past five years, Drupal has won thousands of dollars in award competitions sponsored by Packt, due in no small part to the strength and passion of our community.

This year, Drupal is up against historic rivals Joomla! and WordPress in the Hall of Fame CMS category. The winning project will receive $2,500.

How can you help make Drupal win? Just go to Packt’s site and cast your vote. But don’t delay, as the competition is only open until November 5.

Packt is also giving away a free Amazon Kindle to a randomly selected voter. Help support Drupal by voting today!

I too voted, many a times, using a single email id! I was just testing, if the voting could be manipulated. How come Packt allows anybody to vote more than 1 time? Shouldn't they restrict one vote per category per email id? Unless until Packt does something to prevent this, the voting can be miss-used.

I also voted twice with my name and same email! Packt should send verification code via Mobile SMS and have dual validation i.e mobile + email to ensure that the votes are unique.

They just could filter the double votes at the end, let's say for example merge them by IP or Email.

Hi Guys,

Julian from Packt here, correct we will filter out double votes from the same email and the voting page also logs your IP address. However please do vote only once, it only gives my team more work :)

I am good? =)))

You could print the votes out and let them sorty it by hand =)) Makes even more work! =))

I feel this vote can be spam easily as they don't do email verification as well as captcha, etc.

Anyway voted already.

franz’s picture

Just read posts above, they log the IP and do a filtering later. =)

I just had the work to vote 4 times with different e-mails, but on the same IP

Drupal not even in the top 3 of the overall winners last year?!? Yet won it in 2008?!? Something strange going on there.


silverwing’s picture

In 2009, Drupal and Joomla were removed from the Overall category since they had been the the top two winners for years (and thus letting WordPress win it.)

Drupal and Joomla were put into the Hall of Fame competition, which Drupal won.

So if you add the Hall of Fame to the Overall winners, the ranking would be, in order: Drupal, Joomla, WordPress, ModX, and Silverstripe.

A vote for Drupal of course!

Drupal is nice to use

lowfour’s picture

Drupal is to joomla like Mercedes SLR is to Fiat Panda. I tried Joomla and everyone is trying to make big bucks for the most basic functionality that we take for granted in Drupal. I wish I could give more to the community, but I am just learning!
