Who was inducted last year?

I recall a post saying that, last year, no one actually got enough votes to be inducted. I think these are the first HoF'ers.

O rly?
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

I have a feeling that this might be relevant soon. Is there a process for removing names from the DDO Hall of Fame?

Are you going to remove Lwerd from the HoF? Lol.

The HoF isn't just about debating skills. It's about being a good DDOian. And I'm not sure if Lwerd qualifies after the most recent relevation.

Lwerd was voted on for her skills, not for her pleasantness.

Lwerd was voted on for her skills, not for her pleasantness.

Actually, she was respected for being number one on the leaderboard as well. Now we know some new factors as to how she got to the top.

They're factors that are under suspicion, not clear-as-day facts. But even if it is proven that Lwerd has been given an unfair advantage, that doesn't discount her skill as a debater, and I doubt you'll get a lot of traction from people who won' change their vote, or even care.

They can't be any clearer, really.

How so? If her wins are because of vote-bombs, then that obviously makes her less of a debater.

and I doubt you'll get a lot of traction from people who won' change their vote, or even care.

Actually, you only need three votes to block someone, L currently has two. Plus, I don't see how she is a good DDOian - vote-bombing, getting banned, and insults coming to mind.

Have you never heard of reasonable doubt?

No, it makes the votes skewed - not her skill. The category for best debater is based on quality, not quantity.

So what if she is a good DDOian or not - she has skill as a debater, regardless of the scores she's gotten or how she got them.

Yeah i stick with keeping her in.
Sometimes people make crazy judgment calls but the girl has skills, and has been a friend to most when ever they have needed it on this site.

No impeachment!

Go to her debates and click on the Votes tab.

Her skill is largely judged based on her rank.

So what if she is a good DDOian or not - she has skill as a debater, regardless of the scores she's gotten or how she got them.

She is an OK debater. That doesn't make one a good DDOian, by any means. I don't care if you win every single debate without voting for yourself, that doesn't necessarily make one an asset to the community. Vote-bombing, getting banned, and insulting other members numerous times certainly outweigh her so-called skill as a debater. HA, and to think she calls other pseudo-intellectuals.
