Trippies Notes

As many of you know, the 2008 Trippies is under way and I thought I might take a moment to reiterate some things here.

The finalists for every category of the Trippies are made up of the top 5 (or more in the event of a statistical tie) nominees submitted by the readers, not by the editors. We've got our own "editors picks" section to make our opinions known, the voting stuff is all about you guys.

In the 'best of the web' subset of the awards - "Best Forum", "Best Blog", "Best Website" etc, we requested that folks refrain from nominating VegasTripping. Winning your own award is kinda stupid... although we do appreciate the kind praise of VT that came in on a couple of those nominations.

There is a small 'grey area' within the "Best Podcast" category which I'm compelled to address.

If VT related stuff is banished from nomination then why isn't VegasGang excluded as well? Simple, I'm 20% of the Vegas Gang in terms of total personage. In terms of participation and expertise, I'm more of a 9%'r. It really wouldn't be fair to keep the other guys (and moderator/creator Hunter Hillegas) from being nominated/voted for by VG's listeners just because I have a partial membership. I'm realistically confident that folks who would vote for the VegasGang are doing it for the other Four Aces, not this Jack(ass). :D

So with that mathematics, I suggest the following: if VegasGang wins, it will win 91% of the Trippie, and 9% (my portion) will be given to the runner up.
