Hi all, the TWIPYs are back again!
The TWIPYs are a “People’s Choice” type awards, where the public votes for their favorites in the pinball world. Like last year, we'll LIVE have a show at the Texas Pinball Festival hosted by Zach and Greg from Straight Down the Middle. We'll have guests presenters, acceptance speeches, a cash bar, and all of it will be streamed live on Twitch.
The TWIPY Committee returns, this year it is comprised of Lloyd Olsen, Steve Bowden, Joel Reeves, William Oetting, Zach Meny, Greg Bone, and Jeff Patterson. The Committee will be responsible for determining game eligibility and categories, show and schedule coordination, and most importantly, maintaining the integrity of the voting process through our online secure voting process, and helping review and validate votes and results.
CHANGE FOR THIS YEAR: This year instead of doing write-in votes for categories such as favorite streamers, podcasters, mods, etc., we are going to have options in a dropdown for voters to choose from. This will provide voters with a better voting experience and save time in February for the Committee as we are getting the show planned and scheduled.
Official voting will still run during the month of January. This year we will be opening PRE-VOTING for the TWIPYs starting tomorrow, Tuesday, December 3rd and running through Thursday, December 12th. These will be write-in votes, and they will determine the drop down selections for the January voting. The number of drop down selections will vary by category and determined by the TWIPY Committee.
The pre-voting opens at midnight tonight - I'll post a link tomorrow here morning if no one else has by then.
