First Badge seen in the wild!

on Tue, 03/13/2012 - 15:00

I was looking through some of the nominated websites this morning when I stumbled across the Blue Drop Awards badge on Salon Thairapy's website. Cool! 

To be honest, I haven't been actively looking BUT it is kind of cool to see. 

Are you displaying the BDA badge on your site? Let us know in the comments.

Rule Change Proposed & Finalized

on Mon, 03/12/2012 - 19:03

[Edit: After little comment from the community, and that comment in favor, we've decided to make the rule changes proposed below. Thank you for your support!]

As you can see from our 2012 budget, we have plans to do a lot of marketing for Drupal in the coming year. That means that we need the financial support from companies in the Drupal community who want to see this work done. Many have expressed that they wish to help by sponsoring but they also want to enter the contest.

Nomination Deadline Extended

D Community,
The Blue Drop Awards Organizing Committee, after very careful consideration, has decided to extend the deadline for nominations through the end of Drupalcon Denver. An official announcement will go out tomorrow morning.
 
One of the goals that we set early on for the Blue Drop Awards was very high community involvement. After having discussions with many people in the last few days who had not even heard of the event yet, we began to consider an alternative schedule that would give more time for word to spread.

Badges? We ain't got no badges!...oh, wait. There they are.

There is an old old Humphrey Bogart movie, where a gang of bandits claiming to be the Mexican police demand that he "hand over the gold or die". Dobbs, the main character played by Bogie, asks for their badges and, in one of the funniest lines in the Golden Age of Movies, the leader yells, "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinking badges!!!" pulls his gun and starts one of the classic gunfight scenes of all time. (A scene that was later spoofed by Weird Al in his 2009 comedy UHF.)

Well, up until today, we were a lot like those bandits.

YOU can blog on BDA.org, too!

If you have been verified as a Drupal.org community member then you'll notice that you have access to the create blog option. That's right, YOU can blog on this website, too. Go ahead. Talk about your nominee. Talk about the lack of Marketing materials for Drupal. Small core. Omega theme.

Discuss your cats.

It's ok. We're family.
