    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Ran through the survey, and a couple of comments:
    1. How about laying out everything on the same page? It seems to make more sense to me.
    2. Best avatar is, I don't know, a bit silly. Silly's fine, though I don't come here to stare at the avatars. It's the text content that counts, and whatever people use for pictures is sort of unimpressionable.
    3. There should be categories for best homebrew/patch developers. Some devs can only make their work available through the forums, and it's good to recognize them.

    WARNING:

    DO NOT preview the questions.

    You can not back up and there is no "do over" if you do not submit the form. You end up not being able to vote.




    Maybe next year I can participate, I'm locked into the final question only.

    Case in point to suggestion 1.

    You can remove a "certain flag thingy" to try again. Of course, for a vote like this a more rigorous way to keep track of who's voted or not than using the same web technology that everyone else uses for unrelated purposes is desired.

    Thanks all for the feedback here. Going to keep all of this in mind for contests and awards going forward for sure.

    Regarding putting all of the categories on one page... we decided to divide things up into 1 page per category because the page looked quite a mess (busy and confusing) when everything was on 1 page, even 2 pages.

    OK... clearing out my browser cache, history, cookies lets me back in at question one and also logs me out of webOS Nation.

    But at least I'm not shut out.

    Still I think it might be advantageous to be able to view the questions first so as to allow some thought to be put into the answers...

    1) Who is the BIGGEST webOS Diehard?
    Why you think they're the most diehard?

    2) Who has the Craziest Avatar?
    Why is their Avatar Crazy?

    3) Who is your Favorite Moderator?
    Why are they your Favorite?

    4) Who is the Funniest Member?
    Any specific stories or examples to share?

    5) Who is the Most Active Member?
    Why are they the most active?

    6) Who is the Most Knowledgeable Member?
    Why are they the most knowledgeable?

    7) Who is the Best New Member for 2012?
    Why are they the best new member?

    8) Who is the Most Helpful Member?
    How has this member helped you?

    Everyone's avatars are crazy lately after the recent resize/crop. The craziest of the bunch must be dkirker's, which was totally <deleted>, in a strange starburst of pixelation

    It has weird pixelated swirling around what is supposed to be the actual picture.

    I wish my avatar wasn't shrunk. The details get jumbled up when the size was reduced.

    For what it's worth...

    The new cropping effect is what made me switch avvies.

    I kinda miss Big Boy.
