    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.

    How about "Best Virtual Pinball Table"?

    Only if it's a trap to throw out your entire ballot.

    It'd be better then a few of the existing categories.
