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!!!

Was it Mikey's posts that did it? I'm guessing it was the Jase and Mikey one-liner thread........

Congrats, guys! TP is truly amazing. It's your dedication to transparency, honesty, friendliness, and respect as well as the innovative stuff you do that makes this place so great. As they say, a company reflects its leaders!

I'm very happy to be part of the TP family. That said, I think it's beerman's turn to take out the trash this week.
