Thank you Bruce, end of story.

I put that up deliberately, because I know just how much Marin loves it. And if he turns down the honour of HOF, then he is condemned to consume at least 4 slices with it, right...?

Bruce: I certainly understand your comments but consider other HoF forums. (ie: MLB, NBA, NFL, and the NHL.) A group of writers nominate candidates for their respective HOFs and then they vote. The nominees get voted in or out whether they decline or not. (Most, if not all, do not.) HoFs are not the same as running for public office where nominees can and do decline from time to time.

I should have also noted that the nominations are closed. I am under some pressure, at present, to bring this HoF endeavor to a swift close. A poll is being designed right now and will be forthcoming shortly.

Awards are a nice idea. I would suggest expansion to include some categories to get more members involved such as "Rookie of the Year", "Most Improved Poster", "Best Picture", "Best Comedy", etc (not campaining, just sayin')

I think that's a great idea, however, it will take a new volunteer to incorporate it as this volunteer has taken it in the shorts with the private Messaging. (You would think we are the U.S. Congress!)

As they say: No good deed goes unpunished.

A poll is obviously a fair democratic way to go, personally I`d be happy with our esteemed Administrators and Moderators making the choice, helped by what members have said.

Greetings,
THEN you're putting the onus on the administrators. Don't they get blamed for enough already? If not WHY not? Yup, go for the popular vote but I've noticed, NOBODY suggested Scooby Doo....Pity.

I would trust Administrators plus the Moderators, to come up with a decision. I don`t put blame on them, not even for removing a post of mine, they do a good job.
But a vote is absolutely fine too.

Hmm - not sure you should do that... did you see my earlier post soliciting bribes?

Greetings,
Now Mr. Gonzo. Are we talking about the flamERS or the flamEES? In any case, I think THAT pole should be in the realm of OTDE and best yet, don't have one.
