Mozilla Awards Vote!
Tuesday March 14th, 2000
The nominations have been considered, and the judges have chosen the final four nominees in each category. We provided links to the nominees contributions where available. To proceed to the vote page, click here. We did our best to provide links to users' contributions, but in the case of nominees whose contributions occurred mainly in Bugzilla, we decided against providing links to Bugzilla queries.
You must be a mozillaZine member to vote. The winners will be announced on March 21. Thanks to everyone who participated in the nomination process, and thanks to all of Mozilla's contributors for all the great work over the past year.

Since I pushed for us to do these awards, I'll respond to your question: I felt that even though Mozilla hadn't shipped yet, a lot of good people had done a lot of good work to get us where we are today, and they deserved some recognition. The two-year anniversary is coming up soon, as well as release of the first commercial beta products based on Mozilla (i.e., the Netscape beta), so I thought that now was as good a time as any to recognize people for their help.
On the question of women: Christine Begle was nominated and normally we would have included her. However she is now a member of mozilla.org staff, and we had already decided that mozilla.org staff members were ineligible. That's because mozilla.org staff (along with the MozillaZine folks) were responsible for approving the awards, oversseing operation of them, and deciding prizes.
