Quoted from MonsieurCS:

Hey it's the booer here.

I respectfully suggest this was not the right place time or method to try and get that grievance rectified.

It made the event awkward and uncomfortable for me and likely others. And this was after the rest of the event presented so well.

Quoted from Aurich:

It's wild how serious you guys are taking this. I really don't think Stern needs to care about a podcast award show. They could just not show up at all, not send a rep, utterly ignore it, and maybe make one guy so mad he doesn't buy a new game for the next month before caving and getting it anyway. That would be about the extent of any repercussions.

I think you’re underestimating how deeply people who make things care how people receive them.
Everyone wants to be appreciated for the things they do.

I sat by some of the Stern winners and I can tell you they were happy and proud by their wins, as they should be!
It was exciting to me to see them take pride in recognition for their hard work.

I think Greg and Zach have done the pinball world a huge service by creating these awards and treating them with respect.
In my view they’ve taken a “podcast award show” and made a real industry benchmark out of it.

Quoted from AUKraut:

As much as a Greg and Zach do for pinball and using YouTube and Twitch to make things happen, and being big fans of theirs, the credit for coming up with these awards goes to Jeff Patterson.....the awards are named after This Week in Pinball after all!

Oops! Thanks for setting me straight. Definitely want credit where it is due to all involved.

Quoted from Aurich:

Damn, nothing says "you haven't made anything new in a while" more than a poster who joined Pinside in 2017 explaining how people who make things feel.

I’m a maker. I care about what I build and how people use it. Screw me for respecting makers in the pinball world. I guess I should refrain from posting until it’s been 5 or 10 years?

Quoted from jwilson:

I think he's referring to how he's made a bunch of very well received mods and was involved in the Alien design and artwork, which all predates you coming here and telling him how people who make stuff feel.

I was really just speaking to the notion that the TWIPYs don’t matter and could be ignored by stern et al.

My view and observation is that they did matter a great deal to the folks who participated.

And yeah being new I had no idea what that guy has done or who he is. Respect to him for also being a maker who helps the community thrive. Alien is a piece of art.

I generally try to post in a way that spreads positive energy. Sorry that I appear to have failed.
