    Heya Y'All,

    Announcing... the first WPMU Plugin Competition!

    http://wpmu.org/wordpress-mu-plugin-competition/

    Here are the plans...

    1. Let’s say the plugin competition is 60 days long and starts… now! Which means that the deadline for plugins to be submitted will be 24th September 2008

    2. To submit a plugin, you register here, write up a post (we’ll give it a quick once over before its published) and make the plugin available to download on your own site, WPMU DEV or wherever you fancy putting it.

    3. The plugins must be freely available for any sort of use, choose the license that works best for you.

    4. Plugins must be either brand new or significant improvements / twists on existing plugins.

    5. Once the time is up and all the plugins have been submitted there will be two votes… the first will be open to the public, the second will be up to the judges (the judges being anyone who submits decently to the prize pool and fancies it :)

    6. Depending on number of entries there may be categories involved

    7. At the end there will be ‘peoples choice’ winners and ‘judges’ winners

    How does that sound?

    To start with Incsub is putting up $250 of prize money and 2 x WPMU DEV Premium yearly accounts (worth $250 each)... so feel free to contribute too.

    Here's hoping this inspires some really great plugins!

    Cheers, James

    sob sob sob, not more things to do, sob sob sob :)

    Though as I'm currently incapable of walking I suppose it gives me an incentive to do get some work done whilst I'm lounging around.

    If I can't think of a plugin idea, then I'll happily put up a prize.

    Can't walk? Why not? :D

    Oh, you did a marathon or something, yes?

    @andrea_r: I did the Oxfam 100km trailwalker at the weekend. I won't regale you with the details, but I'm severely lacking in the toe-nail department at the moment :) and my knees no longer function correctly.

    Seriously though, if any one has any ideas for MU plugins, then let me know. Maybe we should start a list along the lines of the ideas list on WordPress extend.

    Oucha, 100K is a long way!

    Anyways... if people want to add ideas or requests for plugins here (or just generally, I guess we technically get them in these forums every day!) I reckon that would be great.

    Had a brief moment of clarity for the competition... let's make a wishlist of WPMU plugins we'd like to see developed!

    Go whack your requests into the comments and lets see if they get made :)
