The criteria for members chosen for HOF thread write-ups is based on a combination of their relationship with, and/or knowledge of, the inducted member. As you said, you are new, so it's unlikely you have the requisite knowledge of the member's achievements, or the relationship with them to write a sufficient write-up for the HOF. (Though you are always welcome to voluntarily submit one via PM to either Bsh or I)

However, if you would like to say some nice things about the inducted members, or write an equivalent to the posted HOF write-up for someone in particular, detailing their site achievements and accolades, then feel free to do so here. Otherwise, it's not likely you will be asked to provide a write-up for any of these members. But stick around for awhile and it's always possible that you may be asked in the future, for someone in a future HOF class.

It is not just knowledge of a member's achievements, but also a personal connection with them. We want the entries to mean something personal for each inductee.

The critera for writing a write up are as follows

1) Be Jewish
2) Be Half Black
3) Have the person your writing about consent to you writing it, unless said person is afk from the site
4) Have at least 5k forum posts or 30 completed debates on the account you submit the write up on
5) Been a member for the site on said account for 1 year

as the Mod said, you could submit it to the president

as of now, your current president is TUF and your VP is cody franklin

thank you and we will consider this request

But stick around for awhile and it's always possible that you may be asked in the future, for someone in a future HOF class.

Ok I have been looking at the site longer than you think though.

Part of the reward (if I can state it that way) for the member inducted, is also the selection of the person whom does the write-up (as well as the actual write-up itself - and just the induction of course). Member X is inducted, and their buddy Member Y does the write up, and member X is not only happy to read what member Y had to say, but that member Y, someone they are friends with or respect, was the person to say those things (it's especially nice when it's a nice surprise for them). Ideally, this is how it's supposed to work out at least, and I (and whoever else has been involved in the process, Imabench and Bsh to name a couple) do our best to choose those members to do the write-ups that will most make the inducted member happy. Certainly there are cases where we don't have a perfect choice (or we are limited to those willing to do so), but we do our best in the spirit of the aforementioned goal.

While I'm sure you could write a decent HOF write-up (and you are welcome to submit one via PM to me or Bsh), I don't think you'd qualify as the best option for any of these members given the description of the ideal member to do so as described above. I would encourage you to submit one via PM if you like though, or even better, write a HOF write-up and submit it here for this thread for any or all of the members inducted today.

I appreciate you offering, and what I have written here isn't intended as a slight towards you in any way, and I apologize if it seems that way, but there is, based on the knowledge of those involved in this process, a group of individuals thought to be the best choices to write the write-up for each of these members, and it's unlikely you will be selected.

Dam, too bad. Well, let me just tell you, the person who knows me best on DDO is probably Yraelz and F-16, no surprise, but worth considering, just saying. Also, Rosalie told me she wants to write it, as a last resort kind of thing.
