Aloha!

It is that time of year again in which we honor those wonderful people *cough* nerds *cough* who enrich our community and make it the great place that it is!

For those of you who are unaware, DDO has a HOF honoring debates, users, and forum threads that deserve recognition or acclaim. The HOF is upated every 6 months, after the presidential elections. The HOF can be accessed here: http://www.debate.org... Any debate, any user, and any thread can be nominated and elected into the HOF.

The selection process for the HOF historically occurs in two phases. Firstly, there is a nomination phase whereby DDO users are able to nominate 3 debates, 3 users, and 3 threads. Then, in the second phase, the top nominees are put to a final vote to determine who will be entered into the HOF.

This thread is for the first phase. Please nominate up to 3 debates, 3 users, and 3 threads that you would like to see in the HOF. You do not need to max out your nominations (so you can nominate less than three), nor do you need to nominate in every category. You can only cast one voter per nominee (so, you cannot put all three votes you have in a category on one person). This is a great way to recognize those who contribute or have contributed much to our community!

Let the nominations commence!

Must the thread and debate have started after the previous HOF elections?

If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

I'm still debating (mentally) which debates to include. I have like six candidates in mind.

I'll post my thread and debate nominations later.

Why don't you start a polls HoF yourself? I'm sure us polls regulars will be happy to nominate some polls.

I'm sure a lot of us would really. There are quite a few active Polls users. The only problem is that many of the most dedicated Pollsters (Stefy, reece, Gustav, etc.) aren't very active on the forums, but that can be solved by starting a poll ('Have you voted on the polls HoF?') about it.

While we're at that, I'd appreciate an Opinions HoF too :P

PEOPLE

Zaradi
[http://www.debate.org...]

Zaradi is one of my best friends on the site because he is one of the nicest people on the site. He cares about the site, and has done a lot, often at personal expense, to help others on the site, including running tournaments and mentoring new users. His commitment to the site, as well as his general kindness, certainly merit an HOF status for him.

Wylted
[http://www.debate.org...]

He is a super cool guy who never fails to generate controversy. It is his controversy that has made him famous, and made him an institution on DDO worthy of formal recognition. He and his debates will long be remembered. But it is not just his controversy--he's also a nice guy, who cares about the site and new users. He's a staple here, and surely HOF-worthy.

A top 10 debater and one of the sites most prolific fan fic authors, DK has contributed to this site in more ways than most. Providing the site with high-quality debates AND great narratives that enrich the site culturally, he is truly a great user. He's also a good friend, and was one of the first friends I made on the site. So, not only is he a great, productive user, but he is also a good person. For those reasons, he's earned a spot in the HOF.

THREADS

Edit to Civilize, by Writer Dave
[http://www.debate.org...]

This deserves a spot in the HOF because it sparked an an earnest and sincere conversation about community standards and what the site ought to be. Really, it is a piece of DDO history. It's controversy and it's historical importance on DDO are excellent reasons why this is one of the threads most qualified to be in the HOF.

Record Attempt at Most Posts, by Godsands
[http://www.debate.org...]

This is another one of those threads that's a piece of DDO history. It's been a staple on the site for ages, and everyone has fun with it. Most people have posted in it at least once, and since it's a kind of icon of the Misc forum, it deserves HOF status.

New Members Read Me!!, by Airmax1227
[http://www.debate.org...]

This thread has done a lot to help new members, but it also provided useful and easy-to-find information for all users. It is an excellent, informative thread that is perhaps one of the most helpful on the site. It should be in the HOF.

DEBATES

Bluesteel vs. Zarroette: On balance, Mafia is a waste of time
[http://www.debate.org...]

This was a well-fought debate on an issue that matters to many of us. So many people on the site value mafia and play mafia regularly, and so asking the question of whether non-debating activities should be a focus on DDO, even if asked indirectly, is important and interesting. Given the quality of this debate, it should be elevated to the HOF, IMO.

Bladerunner and Airmax vs. Bluesteel and Mikal: The DDO Presidency should be abolished
[http://www.debate.org...]

Another great, technical debate that shows off the skill present on this website. This is also unique because it's a team debate, and--if inducted--it would be the first team debate to be in the HOF. It is also a debate with content supremely relevant to the site and the site's users, and I think that combination: it's quality, uniqueness, and relevance, are great reasons to get it into the HOF.

16kadams vs. RoyLatham: Global Warming is Man-Made
[http://www.debate.org...]

I think this was a great debate between two very good debaters, and it really showcases the best of DDO. It's certainly worthy of an HOF slot.

===============

Of course, good luck to all the nominees. DDO has so many great members, and they all deserve recognition.
