The Behind the Thrills website is doing, like he do each year, its "best theme park website of the year" poll and everyone can vote for his favorite theme park website. 48 websites have been "nominated" and are in the poll list, and guess what, Disney and more is not in the list, just like it was not the year before and also the year before, etc...
His "criterias" to be "nominated" in the poll list are these ones:
As each faithful reader of D&M will have understood these four criterias qualify Disney and more to be in the poll list, and D&M is still not in, year after year. Considering all this i strongly recommend each fan of Disney and more to DON'T participate to the poll even if plenty of others website, starting by Screamscape of Mice Age deserves to win the "title". To have Disney and more in the list, and to win or not win, won't change anything for D&M and is no big deal, but i do care about fairness and it would have been fair to include it, specially considering his four "criterias" to be in the list. Obviously this guy is not doing his job correctly, so why participate to a poll which is obviously biased?
Here below is the message that i just sent to him:
"Hello, I'm Alain Littaye, webmaster of Disney and more and i'm writing you about your "best theme park" poll.
Disney and more exist since seven years ( first criteria ) and since SEVEN years is posting each day an update ( second criteria ) with regular pictorial updates about theme parks whether it is Disneyland Paris or others, like Hong Kong Disneyland, TDL, TDS, etc... In addition Disney and more is considered as the best source for Imagineering infos as well as unique Imagineering report ( third criteria ). Disney and more is read by 3500 to 5000 readers every day and for most of them its their favorite website. D&M is also on Facebook since one year ( fourth criteria ) and even if Disney and more exist as i've said since seven years, it's still not in your list for the poll, just like it wasn't in last year, and the year before, etc...
The most funny is that D&M is one of the sites to which Screamscape - a great website indeed who deserves to have been elected "best theme park web site" the last three years - is linking the most.
Don't get me wrong, i don't give a damn' to have Disney and more being in your poll list or not. If D&M was in the poll, it'll be fair and if it's not it won't change anything for D&M.
But i DO give a damn' when someone don't do its job correctly and that's exactly what's happening. There is still the possibility that you've never heard of Disney and more in the last seven years, which is even worst because not only you've missed unique updates that you won't have found anywhere else and that you would have enjoyed a lot like my 4000 readers do each day, but it also mean that you shouldn't do this poll because obviously you're not qualified for the job."
