The Trippies 2009 Thread

For those who might have questions/suggestions about the 2009 Trippies process, this is the place to post and discuss them. To answer some questions posted to the news blog...

1) The Trippies - and VT - is focused mainly on the tourist corridor. We do not cover locals joints, which is why only exceptional outlying resorts are included in the listing. We've added a handful of new ones that some of you adamantly requested.

2) The reason why we use a list of casinos is to make it easier to decipher and count stuff. We don't have the luxury of employing a staff of flunkies to manually decipher each and every misspelled or partially worded nomination in 70+ categories. If someone writes in Wynncore, or Venetian/Palazzo or THEhotel Mandalay Bay... how do we decipher that... half votes for each?

3) This year we've removed a ton of crusty categories based on lousy voter participation or repetitive results in the past.

4) We could (and did) offer up categories for everything: best ashtrays, best interior lighting, best dining presentation, best place to find hookers, implosion rumor, best waiters, best fonts. This year we opted for brevity and clarity. Perhaps some will return next year, we'll see.

The paring down of the categories as well as some of the option limits are a good idea. Filling out a Trippies ballot should not take as long as filling out a passport application or a loan application.....
