Quoting Sam I Am

Okay, so this is going to be a bit of an ego trip post :)

Travellerspoint was recently shortlisted as one of 5 sites gunning for best Travel Portal at the Travolution Awards. We were up against some REALLY stiff competition including WAYN, TripAdvisor, Travelzoo and TeletextHolidays and just being shortlisted was an honour. Full list of awards and short listed sites here. Needless to say, going up against TripAdvisor in this category I had a feeling they were going to win and they did.

But I'm pumped to see that the judges had the following to say about Travellerspoint:

Highly commended:

“The site is doing some fascinating work with the use of Wikis and destination content and should be applauded for its innovation.”

There weren't many 'highly commended' sites, so this in itself is a big compliment (full list of winners here). Today's online travel market is pretty cut throat and the sites we were up against all have a substantially larger budget than our self funded operation - that's a pretty big understatement too :) But seeing the wiki, our last big development, being mentioned like this is very encouraging. There's been some AMAZING participation in the wiki and the content there is really starting to blossom. A special thank you to those members that have been active there, you know who you are

I'd like to also thank all of you for being a part of Travellerspoint. In fact, the biggest part of Travellerspoint is you and we couldn't be where we are today without you. So a big pat on the shoulder to yourselves and thanks again for the continued support!!!

Although I do NOT know about other travel sites, but I KNOW this I am HOOKED to this site since I found it. I like all of the people who participate in Off Topic Forum, no matter what.

Good luck

TripAdvisor?? Pppppphhhfffftttt!!!! They've got nothing on TP!!!!!!!!
I think it was my spanking skill that really impressed them (and possibly all those martinis we made sure to serve during the voting.)

It was my posts that convinced them, wasn't it?

Seriously, well done matey, you and all the admin guys deserve it, the site is great.

Can I be a Travel Guru now?

You've been slacking lately. I noticed that your partner and your sidekick have been missing in action a lot, too. What's going on with you three?

Tripadvisor is quite useful. But not nearly as addictive....

Hehe, pretty chuffed about this as well. I'm suspecting a mysterious box of chocolates helped sway the judges. Now if only those ill-advised judges at the Webbys would take note ;)

Funnily enough, often it still feels like we're only just getting started ! So much to do.. so little time.
