Ah, shucks.
I changed my mind...
Let's see where this could go.
At the very least it'll be
something to do in the long
days of summer  :)

Well my vote for first inductees would be without question Jeff and Master Po.

Second I think the Game 4 game thread vs the Lakers has to be without a doubt the best game thread this site may have ever seen. The downs and ups and amount of response and the pure emotion involved made it just an unreal thing.

Third, Roy's article on the salary cap might just be the most referenced and informative article I've ever read on the front page of this site. Considering the amount of times that cap questions come up, it was as educational a piece as any I've seen here.

How the 100 Tommy Point thread couldn't be elected as a thread is beyond me. It celebrates the accomplishments of our membership, is outlandishly funny at times, and is probably the most prolific in CB history with no end in site.

Just my 2 cents on the matter.

I like the idea of expanding it to not just members but posts, threads, moments, etc.

I'm a little selfish in that regard because there are some posts that I wrote that I wish had more shelf life, but then again, this is a blog, so it is what it is ;)

In past versions of the blog I used categories like "classic" to try to tag articles I loved, but that was so self-congratulatory that it even made an attention fiend like me blush

so I'm all for a place in the forums dedicated to CB HOF - maybe we can even make you a sub-forum to cover these items, I don't know - I'll let you guys and the mod staff work that out

p.s. when time comes, I'll probably nominate a few "living legends" in Bob Day, Roy Hobbes, and FLCeltsFan.  Plus that kid Steve Weinman has a great future ahead of him ;)

That's exactly where I would go as well....great minds must think alike. ;D

Jeff, or anyone else for that matter, is there CSL interview that sticks out in your mind as being exceptionally famous or well done. I have to admit, I've never listened to one.

(I know, I know. Shame on me!!)

As far as anyone I know who is a Cs fan is concerned, Celticsblog is the premiere online Celtics reference. Saving some of that for posterity can't be a bad idea.

We're going to give this a go, I think.  It's a matter of working out logistics, though.  If anybody has any thoughts on that aspect of things, please, feel free to help us brainstorm.

hey, dont forget some other important records that need to be noticed.

for example...

- longest to get to 1000 posts.

- lowest TP to post ration.

- slowest to get to a TP star.

heck, these are categories i would dominate in a second. and greatness comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes.

open up those CB HOF doors, i'm knocking!!!  ;D

Thanks, nick.  For right now, what would be helpful is things like:

1) ideas for the nomination process
2) how voting is done
3) in the event of Hall of Fame threads, are these archived, or kept active?

... and any other ideas people may have. 

What my preliminary thoughts are (building off the ideas of Jeff, Bob, you, and others) is to have a sub-forum dedicated to the Hall of Fame, where only staff members can start new threads.  I'm trying to figure out if we want to do it like our Announcements forum (where only staff members can post in threads) or keep it like a normal interactive forum.  Ideally, I think we'd have some threads that are interactive and some that are not.  The easiest way to do this, of course, is to just lock the threads we don't be interactive.  However, our software purges locked threads after a certain period of time, so that's not necessarily the greatest option.

Anyway, I'm bringing some of these thoughts out into the public to show that just because the staff isn't *acting* on an idea, doesn't meant they're not *thinking* about it.
