HoF Renovations Notice

Post by RonCo » Thu Jun 28, 2018 10:33 pm

After hearing various ruminations about the Hall of Fame in the latest Ted/Stephen/Matt podcast, we've decided to take some actions to revamp the Hall a little. So for the next few days or weeks, you can expect to see some updating and renovations going on around here. A few things you can expect:

1) Reconfiguring the actual Hall of Fame to be a bit ... spiffier
2) Creation of some forum places where we can actually talk about candidates in advance of the balloting. This should specifically help us "newer" GMs feel like we almost know what we're talking about, as well has help folks be prepared for when the ballot is actually released for voting.
3) Some expending of effort to help us come to shared ideas of what the Hall of Fame is (or has been over the eras). We have the luxury of having so many years of history to deal with. How do we want to do that?
4) Other stuff as our creative juices get flowing.

In the meantime:

An Offer of PPT Bribes for Help - The renovation work will be somewhat extensive and could benefit from distributed work. I've got a list of tings that need doing and a Participation Point checkbook full of semi-blank checks semi-authorized by the board in order to ... uh ... hire help. If you're willing to put in a little effort to help me spiffy up the Hall of Fame, please do let me know and I'll create a few special projects that will be rewarded with appropriate bonuses.

Here are the links....

Pantheon

Level 3
Level 2
Level 1

These were written back in 2014 (real life) and we had 56 players in the HOF at the time. I'm not sure what the number is now but the HOF has grown quite a bit since then.

I did a follow up for the 2014 class and 2015 class (it looks like Real Life 2014 coincided with BBA 2014) to include the 3 inductees for those seasons.
