    Quoted from ZMeny:

    List some ideas here so we can discuss how they would enhance and increase objectivity of the TWIPYs. We work diligently to improve upon them every year.

    what is the deal with Deadflip being eliminate form some categories?

    Sounds like there were ample write in votes but they were not allowed?

    e.g. youtube content

    Quoted from ZMeny:

    Made me sad as well I love that stream

    Zach, you never said. WHat happened with Deadflip being wiped from some categories even through he was top for write in voting (sounds like Youtube content was an example of where that happened)

    Quoted from pin2d:

    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.

    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.

    nobody answered...

    who is this other guy? A youtube pinball person?

    I am assuming he is a person in the community but not sure where he posts content.

    Quoted from wesman:

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if you were being facetious or not. He seems pretty well known in the community for how-to videos, general tips and views, really a good hands on approach in how he approaches and rebuilds games.
    He's quite the diehard regarding rebuilds, even did a nice series of videos where he went indepth on how to safely clearcoat in a garage.
    You should definitely give him a watch here or there. Recently he entirely restored a Getaway.

    thanks for the info and link.

    Never heard of him, but looking at his face he appears familiar.
