Truthfully, I really don't think much of these nomination deals, and as such don't want to participate. They cause more drama, and hurt more feelings than they're worth, I think.
I'm not sure in this case I agree with this statement Coach. First, this is for the Hall of Fame and this is going to be about the only membership interactive part of this, I hope. There will be nominations and elections for thread, post, game thread, fanpost and front page article of the year. If a person wants a post, thread, fanpost or front page article of their's nominated all they have to do is nominate it. It will be the membership as a whole who picks the winner.
Also, it will hopefully encourage people to participate in all the different places that they can participate at Celticsblog if they are looking for recognition. Write fanposts, open threads, write posts, read and participate in the game threads, read the front page articles. The higher quality the participation, the more likely the chance of getting an original post or fanpost published on the front page. It's a rewarding and flattering feeling. And who knows, maybe someday that person will have something in the CBHOF for all to see 20 years from now.
For those reading this thinking "when might I be able to get in the Hall?" and thinking this is going to be causing drama and there will be favorites, you are looking at the CB HOF in the wrong manner. This is not a popularity contest. This is not about having the most TP's or the most posts or being here the longest. It is about what your participation has meant in the shaping of Celticsblog and making it into the best fan blog site on the internet.
Many people gave up countless hours of their time for years to make Celticsblog what it is today. People 99% of the membership have never even heard of. They will be honored. They will have their names set aside. But those names will be released once a year and they will be carefully weighed and considered.
I hope that clears some things up and I hope I am talking for the entire staff here. If I left something out please let me know.
