I plan to write a trip report of my visit to Las Vegas just before Christmas.
We stayed at Wynn for 4 days/3 nights and played exclusively at Wynn and Encore.

I am too lazy to write these days and my English writting is pretty bad, that's why
I still don't have the report yet. But I still plan to write down something and post it here.
If I am asked to summarize it in one word about my overall impression of Wynn/Encore
from a tourist/vacationer/visiting-gambler's point of view, I would say "disappointing".

If I give stars (0-5), I would say:
hotel: 4-5
casino: 3
food: 2 (only considering the quality/varity/service, not the price)
tourist value: 2

I will update this thread whenever I write down something about my trip.
Any comment is welcome regardless it's related to this topic or not.

This site is supposed to be a travel guide for Vegas, but the forum doesn't have enough posts about
traveler's review/feedback about each and every casino/hotel/place.
The official reviews are all very good, but people also want to hear about other visitors' experiences.
I somehow feel it's the weak point of this site.
If everyone makes a little contribution here or there, it can make a big difference.

Just my 2 cents.

Personally, my feeling is trip reports should be posted under Blogs. Perhaps there would be a way to combine blogs with personal reports for easier access to the information.

I don't have a problem with people posting trip reports on here, but I just feel they're more appropriate in the blog section.

PS I will do my Tunica trip next week as a blog report! And this time, I'll finish it...

Tiltpoul, you have a very good point.
The main question is how to see other people's blogs.
At least I don't know unless someone posts a link here.
My rule is that if anything (posts, articles, reviews, whatever) doesn't have a link somewhere in
the front page sometime, it doesn't exist.

Hmmm.... Maybe that's why the blog feature isn't used much.

On the flip side, why does it get used so much by newbies?

FYI: Near the top of the front page is a section on the latest blogs. If you click on the heading, Latest Blog Posts, you'll be brought to a page listing the blogs.

The thing is, blogs are not intended to have a long dialog. Therefore, the blog listing is not as intuitive as it should be.

Thanks DJ!

On my screen, I don't see any link of "Latest Blog Posts". Maybe it's just my problem. I don't know.
On the front page between two bodog ads, there are total six boxes:
on the left side from top to bottom:
Latest Hotel Reviews
Latest Articles
Latest Show Reviews

on the right side:
Featured Gaming Guides
Free Paly Games
Latest Forum Posts

That's all.

From there, click on "forums" on the menu at the top of the screen, and you'll see what DJ was talking about.
