u know whats funny, when thinking of the best threads on CB, they rarely have anything to do with the celts or bball.  most of the time its the community or off topic threads that stick out for me.

The celtics talk forum during the summer is like high school school was for me during summer. I don't think about it much, and I don't really miss it, but before I know it the seasons change and I'm in there all day.

i agree.  i still go there during the offseason, but when thinking of threads that stick out of my favs, the majority of them have nothing to do with the team.

For future reference I need to mention the fruit wars threads but I think that would definitely not be this years. Oh and Game 4 2008 Finals with the comeback was probably the best Game Thread ever.

I'm still a little emotional over the outcomes of those.

This thread was seriously entertaining and full of good laughs.  I wish the thread had continued longer because I believe the OP would have kept it going as long as we had let him.

I just read that for the first time.  It was incredible.  If you read all the posts in a Jersey Shore accent you really get a better feel for things.  Just seems right.

DKC Bucks. Also terrible.

I would feel seriously better about this thread if all discussion regarding star18's thread and what he was like in that thread were to stop. First, the purpose of this thread is to nominate threads for Thread of the Year and a thread that got locked due to the inability of a member to stop arguing a point most found non arguable will not be considered.

Most of the enjoyment some got out of that thread was at the expense of a member and that is not the spirit of what we are trying to accomplish here.

Thank you.

Sorry Nick for nominating that thread.  It was not my intention to nominate the thread as embarrassment to the OP.  Comical Value over seriousness was more for my nomination.  I do however think that the original OP would be honored to have a thread of his nominated for thread of the Year. 

But I fully understand where you are coming from.

I don't agree - at all - that the best threads on this blog have nothing to do with the Celtics, but I recognize that we're all here for different reasons.

There are a goodly number of basketball technicians on this board with whom I love to toss around ideas. People like Steve Weinman, for example, and Roy Hobbs. And those are some of the threads that I have enjoyed the most over the year.

Truthfully, I really don't think much of these nomination deals, and as such don't want to participate. They cause more drama, and hurt more feelings than they're worth, I think.

I'm not sure in this case I agree with this statement Coach. First, this is for the Hall of Fame and this is going to be about the only membership interactive part of this, I hope. There will be nominations and elections for thread, post, game thread, fanpost and front page article of the year. If a person wants a post, thread, fanpost or front page article of their's nominated all they have to do is nominate it. It will be the membership as a whole who picks the winner.

Also, it will hopefully encourage people to participate in all the different places that they can participate at Celticsblog if they are looking for recognition. Write fanposts, open threads, write posts, read and participate in the game threads, read the front page articles. The higher quality the participation, the more likely the chance of getting an original post or fanpost published on the front page. It's a rewarding and flattering feeling. And who knows, maybe someday that person will have something in the CBHOF for all to see 20 years from now.

For those reading this thinking "when might I be able to get in the Hall?" and thinking this is going to be causing drama and there will be favorites, you are looking at the CB HOF in the wrong manner. This is not a popularity contest. This is not about having the most TP's or the most posts or being here the longest. It is about what your participation has meant in the shaping of Celticsblog and making it into the best fan blog site on the internet.

Many people gave up countless hours of their time for years to make Celticsblog what it is today. People 99% of the membership have never even heard of. They will be honored. They will have their names set aside. But those names will be released once a year and they will be carefully weighed and considered.

I hope that clears some things up and I hope I am talking for the entire staff here. If I left something out please let me know.

One person's opinion, Nick, and it's why I won't be participating.

If it works, good for the blog. No problem. I just don't like the idea much.
