QLD Floods

Drupal Version: 
This website looks great on mobile devices!
Why does this website deserve to win?: 
This is not an example of technical finesse. This site IS a great example of how Drupal can solve real problems. This site started as a side project to test Drupal 7 a few days after it had been released and 24hrs after the site launched had 1M+ hits. It demonstrated the power and scalability of the latest release, when very few projects had even started. Over the course of the next 2 weeks, a team of 40+ volunteers scaled up * built a marketplace for people to offer & find accomodation * built a mobile version of the site (currently disabled) * built a custom interface for call center workers to facilitate accomodation matching * curated news, maps, and social media during the crisis
Website Launch Date: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2011
