Title: Nomination Suggestion for the CelticsBlog HoF
Post by: Quetzalcoatl on March 30, 2015, 05:46:50 PM
hwangjini_1 suggested FLCeltsFan should be nominated to the CelticsBlog HoF in this thread:

http://forums.celticsblog.com/index.php?topic=77211.msg1854842#new

For her work making the game threads and I would like to second that motion.  I know this sub forum is dead, but if anybody deserves to be inducted, it is FL.  Those game threads are so well put together and they really draw a lot of positive attention the Forum.  CelticsBlog has such a great forum section for a fan blog and I haven't really seen anything else on any other team's site match it.  I was kind of surprised how most sites don't have a comments section like ours and basically make everyone comment on the stories written by the main site runners.  Taking advantage of the format with those threads really keeps the site alive.

So I don't know if we vote on it or anything, but if we're going to do inductions anytime soon, please make sure FL is included!

As first ballot a HOFer as anyone could be.  She's richly deserving of it.

I have no idea what the status of the HOF is at this point, btw.

FL is deserving but Jeff and some old timers from way way back probably would need to be in the first class of inductees. Got a list from Jeff once upon a time of names he would include. Unfortunately life got in the way and I never got to proceed farther with everything. I think that list is in one of the sub-threads that the HOF Editor/mods have access to.

Cool well you're the guy to add her to the list, then!  We should get this going

The HOF has never really gotten off the ground, but yes, FL is a first ballot HOFer in all of our hearts.

hwangjini_1 should also be nominated.
ha. many thanks but i am not even remotely qualified for that. i see soooooo many posters here who are just terrific.

but back to the topic, flc does consistently fabulous work on those threads. cripes, i dont know if flc has time for anything else BUT those threads. they are amazing.  ;D

so, what is the next step to get flc among the holy hall of fame?

roy, more to the point, let's make flc a member in reality, not just in our hearts? how is this done?

(and you owe me a tp for not asking whether a lawyer has a heart.  ;) )

Now that I look at the sub forum again for the HoF, there is an Inductees section that is empty.  I think that the HoF is a great idea and always just took it for granted that it was active at one point but kind of trailed off.

Maybe we could make it happen in the off-season, when we're otherwise just talking about the draft?  Some people on here really deserve it for making CB such a great place

qtl, good post as usual. thanks for doing some of the homework on this. i like the idea of waiting until the season is over, the hand wringing has wrung, and the teeth are fully gnashed before raising this discussion.

do we also wait until the draft is over as well? perhaps we can unofficially make august the CB HOF month, during dog days. just a thought on the timing.

but above all else, let's not let this slip through the cracks. i want flc to be the inaugural hof member of cb.

CALLING ALL MODS!!!! if this happens, you guys need to create some sort of fancy dancy image, or marker, or star of something for anyone who makes it into the hof. then the hog marker sits with their avatar or whatever.

TP for the kind words!  Anyways, I am going to make an alert to bump this thread on the 15th (last day of the NBA season) to try to get people on board for actually getting the HoF going.  I really think that would be a great time to try and do it

I think it would be great, too.

The official guy in charge of this, currently, is Bahku.  If you guys want to reach out to him to see what he needs for help, I'm sure that he would appreciate it.

you know far more than i do, but perhaps it would be best to do it in chronological order of nominations. was the list you received official nominations?

if not, then flc might be first in line.

terrific, plus bakhu will get this rolling as well. i like this. i have seen some extremely good posters on this board.

of course, now we can have raging debates on standards, rules, nominations, and other such items. ha, ha....just to show how boring i am, i will enjoy these debates.  ;D

I've done quite a bit of prelim work and I will be getting the HOF up-and-running (finally) this off-season. Please throw things around all you want and I'll certainly will take them into consideration.

I will be looking for someone with above-average graphic skills for a logo and the like, (I can do some basic stuff, but would like a bit more than my capabilities allow), so if anyone wants to throw their name at me, send a PM.

I may also need a helper on day-to-day issues once we're rolling, but probably not until then. Any ideas y'all throw around will certainly be taken into consideration, as many heads are better than mine, lol.

Some great ideas already that I've used from the HOF thread, so keep 'em coming!

Bump squared. Now is a good time to. Get this moving.

First, my suggestion is that we set up who makes the decision on HOF entry. I don't fully trust democracy,  therefore I think that while nominations can be. Made by anyone, the voting should be open to mods alone.

I am just getting the HOF ball rolling with. A suggestion.  Many more decisions choices will follow.

First should come the system and standards, then nominations. So I think it best to hold off on. Nominations for a bit.

As far as nominations go:

I like the idea of some sort of minimum requirement (whether TP, post count, years of membership, or some combination of the three).

After that, I like the idea of everyone being able to nominate someone, but the nominated poster does not reach that "next level" of HOF eligibility if they do not garner a set amount of "yeas" from other posters (say 500) in some sort of public vote (maybe a variation of the polls that, instead of taking up singular threads, are part of a running thread).

After that, I like the idea of Mods and other CB HOFers taking a private vote, with HOF eligibility determined either by either a minimum amount of votes or a minimum yes-no %.

EDIT: FLCelticsFan should be the first non-mod inducted, imo.

EDIT2: This is, I believe, the first time I have ever used the acronym "imo"

I started the HOF idea years ago but just couldnt get it going. I did have a conversation with Jeff, who btw, would be the first person inducted. His idea for the initial ingoing group were a lot of people who helped him get off the ground or were huge initial posters back when CB was in its infant stages, years before most current posters had even heard of Celticsblog. I gave those names to the current HOF Director, sorry cant remember who they were.

But of current day contributors to this blog, and I have been reading and participating on CB since 2006, I would nominate only two people

Roy H. (Roy Hobbs)
Jeff

Thats it.
