Digit Geek of the Week Award
This is what all have been waiting for! Since the thread started for the noob of the week section has been becoming popular, I decided that there must be an offitial Geek of the Week award too(it rimes well).
The post needs to be an original one. Not a carbon copy of another FAQ or guide. Good sensible reviews, great tips, etc will qualify for this. An example is the ubuntu customisation guide. Guides to softwares, self made software, etc are also symbols of originality.
- The content needs to be somehting that is worth this award.
- It must showcase exeptional qualities like great/unique ideas, ease of application in real life, helpfullness, etc.
- freeness of the software suggested is important, because anything that can be done free of cost with a freeware, instead of by using a paid software is as good as earning the money needed to buy the paidware. A penny saved is a penny earned.
- Also, good arguements in debates qualify for this.
- Usually, the above means that Stuff in the Technological/Random news section can't make it here.
- The grammar needs to be good.
- The language should also be of a decent class.
- The content needs to be well presented.
- The choice of formatting of the text is also important.
- Screenshots, code examples, etc add to the quality
- Anything visually pleasing is a definite positive.
Criteria for Qualification:
- Posts need to be made in the past one week. Exeptions are still allowed.
