I am super excited to announce the winners of Week 1 of The Golden Posts Prize Program
All winners have won the SitePoint book of their choice in either print (stock permitting) or digital bundle.
Content For Your Site
The winner this week is [DCrux for this great post about [URL="http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=674119"]Writing for the Tabbed UI](http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/member.php?u=138256) in the Content Writing forum. I think the reason is fairly obvious. This post is well laid out and is packed full of information.
Design Your Site
[deathshadow60 was the standout winner in the Design area this week, with an amazing 5 posts nominated! My choice for the winning post is [URL="http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4588937&postcount=25"]this one about background images in CSS](http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/member.php?u=360079). In this post he provides a solution and a very careful explanation of why that solution works. Fantastic post.
Program Your Site
The winning post in the Programming section this week is from [Chroniclemaster1. [URL="http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4588656&postcount=6"]Here he helps a newbie to OOP](http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/member.php?u=187049) with a post which is both helpful and supportive. In the words of the Advisor that nominated it, this post is a breath of fresh air.
Host Your Site
Our hosting Golden Post this week is [this one from [URL="http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/member.php?u=36024"]amabaie](http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4586416&postcount=5) in response to a post about choosing domain names. I selected it because it makes a new point and clearly explains it - adding value to the thread.
Grow and Manage Your Site
The winning Grow and Manage post is in the Business and Legal Issues forum this week and is from [qvalpro. He [URL="http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=674703"]discusses his approach of getting work through freelancing sites](http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/member.php?u=382369). It's always interesting to read the background behind decisions that people make and I appreciate it when you are prepared to share personal experiences in order for others to learn.
[iMeow just scraped in (time wise) with [URL="http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=673997"]this post about web standards](http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/member.php?u=367650) to take the golden post for the Community area this week. This interesting post was the beginning of a thread that makes great reading.
So congratulations guys - great work. I'll PM you with details of how to claim your prizes.
And to everyone else - I look forward to seeing more great posts this week.

I'm a little upset that my post wasn't recognised

That's because we're looking for the "Golden" Post rather than the "Platinum" Post. :eye:
I'd like to congrat the winners. Superb is the word! :tup:

I think Rudy should have won on that hilarious post in general chat in reference to Another Designer getting acupuncture.
Congratulations to the winners though!

Yes, Congratulations to the winners!
I can see I'm going to need to increase my efforts this week - only 18 more chances for me to win a free SitePoint book.
