    Yet another cool idea for a WP competition! :)

    It is an excellent idea and looking at the cool prizes so far, I am really sure it will attract a lot of incredible coding talents. I personally am looking towards the promised wiki - it would be great if we users can also publish there our plugin ideas so developers could could take ideas directl from users that would benefit from their work.

    And the 500$ award from weblogs.us is for a very promising competition - something that helps bloggers connect to each other and build better interconnections and information flow. Might even give birth to a successor to what trackback is. ;) I am really looking towards this...

    Myself I once hoped for a plugin that allows blogs to automatically "push" posts to other blogs via two-way permission system that allows the receiver to automatically publish an article with quotes and links to the original blog, either separate posts or a single post with user-defined style (lists, etc.). This way, imagine I have tons of friend bloggers and I want to publish a summary of their activity and also comment on each of their posts, maybe drop some that don't interest me too. Instead running mad and collecting information from their sites, my own blog collects quotes that are "pushed" by those blogs because they have my blog address in respective "push-lists", and builds a special type of post, that is by default a draft. I can, using a simple admin interface, add comments to each quote, delete quotes, move quote-comment up and down, add icons for interesting, curious, fun, etc. Then the whole thing - all those quotes and their respective comments - are formatted in a nice single post and published on the forum. While this doesn't bring a revolution to blog-2-blog communication, it greatly eases the whole "flow of information" from information source to the "neighbors".

    I think this is brilliant, and brave, LaughingLizard, but I'm not sure where I'm supposed to "look" at the entrants. Are you going to have a special section open and are "we" going to be able to check these plugins out before the winners are announced?

    More details! I'm too excited about this!

    Look for the blog and public wiki soon. Also, all the downloads will be available from and hosted at the Plugin Repository
