So I have sort of figured out who the nominees are, but will there be an official announcement? Also, do the top 3 still get a community vote?

If someone in the HoF assured you or anyone that X number of nominees would be inducted, well they did not speak with the authority of the entire group. I have a hard time believing anyone who understood how the system works actually said that.


No one ever said an exact number of nominees would be inducted into the Hall of Fame. This isn't Nascar where it's 5 every year. :>)

But in the past the top 15 nominees have been considered for induction by getting a questionnaire.

??? Who was this? I missed out on that.


You'll just have to download prior episodes of SHNN to find out. :o :lol:

It was about a year ago when it was talked about on the show; don't remember exactly which episode.

I have two names in mind. While I'd like to recognize the actual cool story person, I also don't want the other to take an unintended slight by mentioning the wrong person. Since my memory is failing me, we'll rely on Bill to identify the correct person.

Oh, I see what you are saying. Let me say this, as I don't think it's a secret. Anyone can figure this out by adding up the votes in the nomination thread. Some people only got 1 or 2 votes - too many of them IMO, and to be honest with you, I cannot see any HoF'er voting for someone who didn't have any support unless there was a very very good reason for us to induct that person. So a big part in cutting down the list to 8 was because we wanted to choose from the ones the community really supported.

I'd prefer it not to be known which were being considered but the cat is out of the bag. We have to keep it competitive. If we want to get back to 15, then let's recruit more people to play this game! :)

I still think some more, "historical" entries should start to be considered.

Scott, here's the thing that is apparent. People do their thing for our game, then disappear. There have been times when I couldn't even contact people b/c they got in the HOF, then have never been heard from again. It's the nature of the beast. I can think of one person in particular that was like fourth one year in nominations, then dropped off the radar and got like one or two total nods the next year. People who have been around a long time can remember the ancient ones, but not very many of those left these days.
