Competition was fierce but with only 24 votes, the winner could easily have been decided in the last few hours.
I have checked the ballots and there doesn’t seem to be any scandals – rigged voting would have been news worthy and actually profitable, it just goes to show how honest people in the WordPress community are.
Here is the voting:-
|Plugin||# of Votes|
|Ultimate Tag Warrior||10|
I don’t want anyone to feel that a vote is being wasted, thus for the next round I will be carrying forward half the value of previous votes rounded up, thus those that receive some votes in previous rounds will have a slight head-start in the next round of voting.
I am looking for more nominations for Best WordPress Plugin, and hopefully next time round we will see more voting.
Proof of $100 Donation:-

I have read that tagging functionality is being brought into the core of WordPress, and UTW might evolve into a way of expressing that data.
Christine Davis has worked hard with UTW, and I was actually glad I could give some recognition for all the hard work she has done in providing tagging support to WordPress in such a comprehensive manner.
Hopefully the next round of voting will gain a little more publicity, and that I gain a few more product reviews so I can make more donations to more plugin authors.
I am going to finish with a quote from my “almost namesake”, Andy Beal over at Marketing Pilgrim
If you want something picked apart, Andy Beard is your man.
