This article contains almost nothing, no reason to make readers view a separate list page. Compare with FSF Free Software Awards. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 20:52, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

  • "This article contains almost nothing" - hence it's marked as a stub. Rather than advocating merging, perhaps it is better to make an effort to add more content from media references to the Open Source awards. Tantek (talk) 11:35, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
  • This article and the respective list of awards was drafted parallel to the existing Webby_Award and List_of_Webby_Award_winners articles, as that seems to be the pattern on Wikipedia for awards. If the Webby Awards are deserving of such a split, then so are the Open Source Awards. Tantek (talk) 11:35, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
I looked at pages for awards I had heard of in Category:Computer-related_awards (Anita Borg, ArsDigita, Cool Site of the Day, EFF Pioneer, Grace Murray Hopper, Knuth award check, Prix Ars Electronica, Webby) and only Webby has a list page, I'd guess having to do with awards in "over a hundred categories", making a single article infeasible -- indeed, most year's Webby awards have an individual article. None of the others do (CSotD and Knuth award check don't really count, not listing winners at all). Also, the article would still be a stub with the list of winners included; that's a separate issue.

Also also, thanks for starting this article! I should have used nicer language than "contains almost nothing". Starting articles with "almost nothing" is good, only thing I've ever done. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 02:04, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
  • The articles should be merged for now. If there is ever a substantial amount of content written about the award itself (which seems doubtful, IMO) the articles can be split again. Kaldari (talk) 20:45, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
