    Someone needs to ping me when waiting on a response!

    Very good questions. The Committee basically evaluates as a group the original content being broadcast and in what form. Content that is released initially as a stream can then be uploaded onto YouTube or as a podcast, however the primary choice of medium is still streaming. We also evaluate if any intention was to market the stream content as something else. For example, Buffalo Pinball does a monthly “podcast” stream which we consider a podcast instead of a stream because the intent was presented formally from the start and streaming video was not the primary use of the media. In other words, it was intended for an audio podcast even if it was initially recorded using stream broadcasting. In addition, the committee also takes into consideration original content that was created for the YouTube channel, outside of streaming/uploading from a different medium. Some on the drop down list are stream uploads, but some have a significant percentage of original content/videos solely created and/or aired on YouTube. If we deemed the original stand-alone content significant and substantial then they were deemed eligible vs. ineligible.

    It’s not an exact science or a perfect system. The TWIPY Committee is comprised of respected individuals in the community and we try to make the awards as fair and objective as possible, and take into account some common sense as well.

    Here are some suggestions if we go by awards shows already out there...

    Best Picture (Best Overall Pinball)

    Best Director (Best Designer)

    League MVP (Most Valuable Person to Pinball) (That year)

    Best Original Screenplay (Best Original Game)

    Best Adapted Screenplay (Pinball based on a licensed game)

    Best Animated Feature (Best Animations on Screen)

    Best Cinematography (Best Playfield Layout)

    Best Original Score (Best Music Pinball)

    Best Editing (Best Coding/Rule Set)

    Sound Editing (Best Sound FX)

    Production Design (Best Art Package on a Pinball)

    Best Visual Effects (Same as before Best visual fx on screen)

    Other categories I would keep or consider...

    Best Original Toy
    Best Toy Set
    Best Mod of the Year
    Best Stream
    Best Podcast
    Manufacturer of the Year
    Comeback of the Year (could be a mod company, pinball supplier, designer, etc.)

    All the rest I would drop! All categories should be focused strictly on highlighting and promoting the advancement of pinball.

    Keith Elwin might get all the credit for his game, but he had a team just like a director of a movie. Breaking it out like this promotes all those people and advancements.

    Right on.

    Honestly seems ripe for bias. I can tell you that I go to YouTube for deadflip content. Pretty sure he makes unique stuff for YouTube.

    That one seems pretty strange to have removed him if he got enough write ins.

    Did not know till now the twipys had an electoral college aspect.

    Probably should have posted this here sooner - not because I expect to win streamer of the year but because it was fun.

    Announcement:

    "After thoughtful considerations to all parties a mutual decision has been made regarding the TWIPYs award show. Greg Bone and Zach Meny will not be hosting the award show this year. TWIP wishes them the best of luck in their future endeavors and thanks them for the co-creation of this celebration of pinball."

    #120 1 year ago

    Well that escalated quickly!!

    So who is going to host? More fallout from the TPN I guess? Its a shame, they did a fantastic job last year.

    #121 1 year ago

    Wish there were more clarification on what the hell is going on in pinball right now.

    They've done an incredible job, I couldn't agree more.

    Not sure yet on who is hosting, hoping to figure something out this week.

    I loved the show last year and it absolutely sucks that this is happening. Can we get a little more info please?

    Might want to consider a having a male and female host to prevent getting called an all boys show from Jack Donger.

    #125 1 year ago

    Take us off the ballot. Kristin and I will host it.

    Get Elvira to host, she can't cost too much nowadays...

    Quoted from Raegor:

    Or Svengoolie, as he is a friend of Spooky Pinball, so maybe he can get a ride with them down to the show.

    Man, this sucks. I enjoyed last year's awards because it didn't feel like a nerd fest and was entertaining and fun. A good thing gone before it's time...

    And Nero fiddled as Rome burned.

    #129 1 year ago

    In response to the messages and emails I've received about the statement I shared from Zach and Greg about the TWIPYs, please let me clarify - I wanted Zach and Greg to continue on as hosts. I did not "kick them out" from hosting the TWIPYs. They did a fantastic job hosting last year and the show will not be the same without them.

    That said, the TWIPY Committee and I are committed to making this year's show bigger and better than ever. Stay tuned!

    #130 1 year ago
    Quoted from pin2d:

    We'll have guests presenters, acceptance speeches, a cash bar, and all of it will be streamed live on Twitch.

    I'm hoping the part about being streamed on Twitch is still planned. Along with it being archived by someone afterwards on YouTube.

    I have enjoyed the Twipy awards the past 2 years via SDTM and I just hope the production and presentation is not a step back from last years awards show.

    It will definitely be streamed live and archived on YouTube.

    Can't understate how much SDTM meant to the TWIPYs and what a great job they did.

    Working hard to make it another great show, had a call last night with the TPF Audio/Visual people, 44 days to get everything ready, the show must go on!

    #132 1 year ago

    Jack danger/ jeffrey Star to host.

    Just get an animation of Strong Bad and put Macho's voice to it.

    I love you macho but I don't think I could take more than a boxing round of time with your voice. Ding ding !!

    #139 1 year ago

    Ok, I have decided my u/d ratio is getting too high...

    How about Kaneda to host?

    Shit... now I’ve done it.

    Would you co-host with Kaneda, you could split the cost of driving down in his Demon.

    Done! And Bublehead can be the back room bouncer! While one of the nicest guys you'll meet he's dam near a 7' wall and would keep anyone quiet! lol Hope to see everyone at TPF this year. Should be an impressive show no question changes and all.

    At least Kaneda is passionate and believes in the TWIPYs as a way to recognize the hard work of content providers. I would still prefer Zach and Greg, but Chris would keep the show interesting.

    Quoted from yancy:

    Probably an unpopular opinion, but I think the Twippy award for Podcasts has done more harm than good (harm may be too strong of a word). It created a weird competition between the podcasts that bled into the content in odd ways. I'm not saying it was all bad as it was definitely interesting to see who won and got nominated, etc., but for me overall it became mildly annoying.

    #150 1 year ago
    Quoted from yancy:

    He allready doesn't.

    I might have gotten it wrong but the idea that Greg & Zach shouldn't moderate a show where they're nominated for multiple categories (or TWIP shouldn't be feasible for voting "best website") sparked at Kanedas "made up drama" Inc.

    Quoted from iloveplywood:

    I wouldn't go that far.

    Sure, there's allways guys that get no recognition at all and are frustrated, or people like K. that somehow manage to build their own microcosm.
    But this is not the reason for what has happened here. There are a lot of podcasts, but all of them -but one- share/ cater to the same audience.
    Imagine coming to a newspaper booth, where they have nine same-ish but very, very good "regular" newspapers and one tabloid newspaper, wich one do you suppose sells most?

    If TPN does well and cann only be voted "as one" for (and not each individual segment) TPN should win pretty easily in 2021.
    Then again, that'd be not the best thing to do for various reasons.

    Kaneda won and he came on stage and everyone (but that booing guy) handled that very professional and that is the best thing you can do!
