Frankly, I wouldn't blame him if he did stop the poll, based on how so many in the enthusiast community react to the results--even though it would be a shame to see it end.

 

Yeah, I'd love to see it continue. But I can understand if he wants to spend his time on other activities, particularly those that don't include people intentionally trying to sabotage his efforts.

What a massive shame if that's true. I really do hope Mitch finds the time or will to run it again, or passes the algorithm on to somebody willing to take up the reigns. Mitch's poll is one of the few things I really look forward to every year in the industry, I hate that we might have lost it because some people can't handle reality or responsibility. Just truly embarrassing.

That is great news to hear the poll has a green light. I sure hope he gets better soon! I think the poll should be done in January anyway. The coaster season goes on in December in many parts of the world and some people may not get to those parks till after to votes are already in.

Mitch Just released the 2010 "Best Wood Coaster Poll"

 

Wood Coaster Poll has been released. VOTE!

http://www.ushsho.com/bestrollercoasterpoll.htm

 

The actual ballot is here:

http://www.ushsho.com/woodballot2010.txt

 

And a very useful Ballot "helper" is here:

http://www.wardleystunnels.org/hawker/

 

TPR **STRONGLY** supports this poll! The results are valid! And even if you've ridden 200 woodies or 10, YOUR OPINION COUNTS! Take the time now to fill out the ballot. It's not as confusing as it looks!

 

As always, we strongly recommend reading TPR's "Idiots Guide" to filling out the poll if you need some help:

http://themeparkreview.com/mitch.htm

 

EDIT! Here is my ballot. Since I've been on 164 different woodies out of the 184 that are listed on Mitch's poll, I choose to us the "grouping" method, otherwise this would take me forever!, I choose to us the "grouping" method. As you can see, the way I do it, I have a top 10 and a bottom 10. Assume that ranking #35 is "totally average", so you can see what coasters call "above average" in my opinion, and "below average."

 

I also think about coasters as "best in their class", so for example, even though a "Scenic Railway" might not stack up to some more modern rides, I'll give a few bonus points for the one I feel that is "best in it's class."

 

Here goes....
