I'm curious what the status is of this past year's class for the IgoUgo Hall of Fame?

We are planning to announce the 2010 Hall of Fame members in June.
Good luck to our dedicated contributors.

Wow would that make them the 2011 HoF? I'm curious why there is a serious lag for the recognition awards of the IgoUgo contributors. The 2010 awards were very late as well.

Hi MilwVon and to all our IgoUgo contributors,
As IgoUgo grows in membership and we work on improving our website and member experience, we found we had to revise our production schedule this year. Looking to future awards and Hall of Fame announcements, we hope to return to our original event schedule.
Thank you all for your patience.

June has come and gone . . . what is the status? I seriously worry about the lack of attention given to the contributors of this site. Without high quality content, there would be no IgoUgo.

The inductees were notified (some time ago) and we are awaiting their replies. I know Thomas has done a followup with some of these members-- so please-- to the 2010 inductees of the Hall of Fame (and you know who you are) -- hurry back with your profile replies as we are looking forward to announcing you soon!

Congrats to the newly inducted members of the Hall of Fame (class of 2010). Special shout out to BawBaw, whose photos have been inspiring on IgoUgo for many years!

Congratulations, all! I'm glad there are so many well-deserved inductions to the Hall of Fame!

Hey IgoUgo editorial team . . . why has there been no public announcement by you guys on the new Hall of Fame class?
While I understand your interest in promoting your platform on a more interactive social media tool like Facebook, it's disappointing to find NOTHING here (or on FB) from you about the new inductees.
I'm growing increasingly bored with this site and the lack of promotion of your contributors who provide the content necessary to have a decent presence on the internet. Given that you have nearly 12,000 "fans" of your FB page and can only must a handful to respond to your innane questions should be sending you a message. I do not think you're connecting very effectively with people.
If you wish to be relevant to travelers, I encourage you to find a better way to engage folks.

Dear MilwVon and to all our contributors,
Thanks for your comments. Today's blog post features the 2010 Hall of Fame.
As always, we are excited when any of our members contribute. It makes the site great, plus it gives us interesting takes, useful advice and beautiful photos from places around the globe.
We are also trying to improve the site. If there is anything you would like to see on IgoUgo beyond more promotion of your content, let us know here. Many thanks!
The Editors and your IgoUgo Team
