    2016 Trippies are up and open for voting to registered VT site members. Chuckmonster and team have cleaned up the process since the fiasco two years ago where The D swept multiple unearned categories.
    I returned to participating in the nomination and voting process. The D is still present in more categories than I think they deserve IMHO, but the categories look to be more evened handed and there seems to be a more respectable mix of properties.

    VMB is up for nomination for best community, so I encourage all members to be sure to vote for VMB. Link to the nominees can be found at: http://www.vegastripping.com/trippies2016/

    Already voted for VMB. It is quick and easy and I would encourage all VMBers to follow the link and do the same

    I wouldn't call it even handed. Some of the options were bizarre and there was no almost no respect for offstrip places.

    Yeah they had definitely limited the places we could vote for and in some categories the choices were a WTF reaction on my part.

    They take nominations, and then whittle the list down from top nominees. I saw most of my nominations appearing the voting categories.

    Yeah, like Funkhouser said, if you don't like the nominees you can nominate your own picks next year before the voting round. I think there are definitely some "wait, what?" nominations, like Lago as Worst New Restaurant?????? Plus some silly ones like Cocaine for Worst Hangover Cure. But for the most part I agree with what got nominated.
