should we put the current Year on the award images? ie not simply "Best Text Editor" but "Best Text Editor - 2005" etc.
in anticipation that the choices may change over time.

Probably not a bad idea.  You never know when something better will show up.

Definitely!  It gives the software companies something to strive for year after year, if nothing else.  Wink

I like the idea of a "year" award, but allow DCC the right to re-view the class when new versions are released. Some apps can quickly leapfrog others between versions. Also, there's been a terrible trend going around where one version is great; and the next just blows, followed by a version that fixes the previous bomb.

hehehe.

yeah, the thing is, year isnt ideal, since its not really a natural way of specifying the lifespan of the review, but it seems like there could be a serious problem if a year later we award best XXXX to some new program, and 2 companies now have the indentical award for identical category...

the alternative would be like

put an edition number on it.

like

Best In Class
Phase 1

vs.
Best In Class
Phase 2

to indicate that phase 2 is a more recent award than phase 1.
