One little problem you may have not considered. If you nominate these guys for people to say all these nice things about (well deserved) you also open it up to people arguing AGAINST them being in the HOF (often well deserved too). This then becomes a personal attack on their comments/intelligence/opinions. Since that is not allowed on here, then it really becomes a forum of nominating everyone with no one able to contradict their worthiness.

The nice thing about the TP's, is that you can give Kudo's to someone about one comment, while thinking another is absolutely wrong.



The CB Hall of Fame would in my opinion not be an interactive area where such things as people denigrating people would be allowed. The mods have enough work to do without having to patrol a Hall of Fame.

It would be a place to browse through CB history and find info on the greats of this site, whether that be threads, posts, articles, CSL interviews, mods, site contributors and managers, and authors, or posters whom I believe would have to be somewhat extraordinarily special to make the Hall.

How about a "Ring of Honor" then that only Jeff can place people in. You could have a nice little area that you could see the information you are talking about. Then there is no issue...

Nick, I think this is a good idea, but I think it should be kept fun -- that is why we all come on here and make comments on a daily basis -- we love the Celtics, have fun talking about the Celtics, etc.  We take the Celtics seriously, but we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously.

So, when you suggested the following:

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

It immediately came to mind that we could also have Threads of Shame or Subjects of Shame
(ie: any thread after NBA 2008 Finals Game 6 that has to do with bringing back Gerald Green or Antoine Walker).

Also, a quick note regarding the amount of time someone has been a member of Celticsblog -- it is not entirely accurate to look at when their current profile was registered because some of us have changed names (I used to go by rcs34red -- and I suspect others have undergone name changes as well).
Celtics fan for life.

i think it is a fun idea, but i honestly dont think we should have it.  we have tp's and stars with threads for each for posters to congratulate and recognize posters' contributions.  i think adding a hall of fame could potential create issues for people (not myself, as i think its a fun idea).  people may start to get egos, build resentment towards others, and worst of all....post with an agenda, rather than keeping it real.

We should have poster of the month, like employee of the month, so everyone gets a turn, that way no ones feelings get hurt

on an unrelated note, holy crap the ice cream man is outside, I've never heard him here before, that's awesome

Maybe we can have the NBA champions rotate every year so no one's feelings get hurt...

Was what i thought about when i read the part about the icecream man! (being easily distracted)

As in taking over as Jeff retires, or hostile takeover?

A certain Rondo "fan" would have something to say about that.
