I got this idea after giving Roy his 14th and wdleehi his 11th congratulations in the "We have a new star!" thread. They are truly special people here at CB and there are a few others as well.

I recently have just passed my first anniversary of joining Celticsblog, which, by the way, would also be a pretty cool continuous thread to have right along with the "We have a new star" and "100 TP's" threads. But I digress.

So having been here a year and knowing that this site is at least on it's 3rd(is that right) version of itself, technically, software and server speaking and is a couple to a few years old at least, I was wondering.

Is it time for a Celticsblog.com Hall of Fame?

There could be up to five people nominated each year into the Hall with a a month voting period where each blog member with over 250 posts gets to vote voting for a max of 3 people. Minimum 75% of the vote to enter. The numbers could be changed but you all get the idea.

There could be Threads of Fame, Posts of Fame, Subjects of Fame, and Articles of Fame.

There could be a section on This Day in the Chat Room for famous chat discussions the happen on famous days.

There could be archives of the most famous CSL nights each year.

Celticblog could have its own Hollowed Cyber Hall that visitors to the web could look through as we showcase the best of the best that our little community represents.

If it starts to get lots of traffic or regular traffic there could be sponsors who get to advertise there exclusively. Exclusive Sponsor of the Celticsblog.com Hall of Fame.

LOL. Okay so I'm half kidding with that one but you all get the jist.

Of course it would also involve charter members and how Jeff, Bob Day, Roy Hobbs, Master Po, and wdleehi couldn't be those charter members is beyond me.

Of course this would have to involve the approval of the hierarchy and involve some extra work from my second favorite computer expert in the world(sorry Bob, my son is my first), but what does the Celticsblog family at large think of it?

I'm serious here, what do people think of the idea and is it something Jeff would allow and Bob would help us with?

I think its a pretty cool idea, creating almost a "history" section of CB, we could try to dig up the first post ever on CB, the first post that Roy had to edit, the first time someone crashed the server, etc.

but the hall of fame, I like it - I don't know if you'd do 5 a year, or 1 a year, or 1 a quarter...who knows - I do think the names you named would all be very very solid candidates, others come to mind as well Redz, Bahku, Scintan, yourself, SShore (though we'd have to bring back his original retired sn), Florida... there's more, but yeah it'd be cool to do, the only thing I'd worry about with doing it as a poll is the politics that might go into it (we all saw the TP pageant) - but I think anyonymous nomination and voting could work... there could be qualifications to get in - like 5000 posts, 300 TPs or something like that, I dunno - but I do like it, I think it would be a nice way to cement those who have contributed in a special way

Now the big question - will they give CB a wing in Springfield? =)

Nice sentiments nick - classy stuff

I'm pretty sure Jeff is the first inductee.

And Po.  We can't forget Po.

I had those guys on my list for sure.

There's no way Jeff, Po, Bob are not in in my mind. I think you and wd should get in initially too as prolific and contributing mods.

But if the first year is only 2 people only, yeah, it has to be Jeff and Po.

Jeff is without fail the Walter Brown of this proposed Hall of Fame, and that's where it should begin.

Nice idea.  I'd change it to allow voting from only star posters or posters who have contributed for such a period of time.  250 posts seems a little low.

I think Jeff should be the first inductee, and afterward those who are in the Hall could decide who gets on the ballot.  I think Jeff has enough on his plate that we don't need to saddle him with voting for the Hall of Fame on his own forums, so the invitation is there for him, but I think we can handle this if it's too much work for him.
We're the ones we've been waiting for.

Haha.  I think Big John falls under the Pete Rose category.

This is an original and interesting, if not difficult, concept.

I got a chuckle out of the Celticsblog Hall of Fame idea.
