I can't help having an odd feeling about not seeing Peter's name in the "Best general contribution" category.

I realise that Chris has covered himself by saying that "Drawing up the list of nominations was a tough job and if something or someone isn't listed, this doesn't necessarily mean we don't care or that we forgot" but the issue is, IMHO, that the contribution of several key RISC OS developers are not always that well known and recognised by the complete RISC OS community. *Drobe* may know about these contributions and value them but not necessarily the general RISC OS user and that's purely because they are not (enough ?) being told and explicitly being made aware of. I still witness this regulary when talking about the latest RISC OS news in our riscos.be club meetings.

The RISC OS development scene is extremely vunerable these days and I hate to see further disruptions leading to even less cooperation or involvement. It is an after the facts suggestion but two categories "Best general contribution for new comers" and "Best general re-contribution" would probably be been the best.
