We could give our opinion (and we will), but, with much of my focus recently on community and web 2.0, I am going to ask you all to do a bit of crowd sourcing here…..
You might have heard of UserVoice. Its a great web 2.0 application where people can vote on things. Everyone gets a set number of votes, in this case 10. You guessed it, we are going to ask you to vote on what you think are your "bread and butter" extensions. You can give one extension all your votes, or spread them around.
The only guideline is vote for extensions you "couldn’t do without". Also, make sure you search for an extension before you vote, we don’t want to dilute votes, and feel free to make enthusiastic comments! If you suggest an extension, try to enter the title as the name of the extension that appears on the extension directory.
Just to make it a little more fun, here at Joomlashack we are going to give out some prizes. In one month’s time, we’ll give the #1 extension a $200 prize, and #2 $100. If its a donation-ware type extension we’ll donate the money directly to the developer. If its a commercial developer, we’ll make the donation to joomla.org in their name*.
Come on and join in the fun, and here is a glimpse at the current top 3 extensions!
