Does Mike have a second account? Because it seems strange to me that his account is on here. His account somewhat represents the site itself, and helps people with it and created it, but doesn't really use it and the site's actual contents.
He might've used it some, maybe, but not much.
If we're going to make a hall of fame for this site, we ought to only include people who accomplished something or became worthy within and through this site. They used this site to win and become a historical and famous member or user, rather than have created code which happens to be greatly associated with this site.
These people might be people with high numbers of debates or win-to-loss ratios, or people who have proven to be a pretty cool guy within the forum or even debate comments. Stuff like that.
Plus this is a yearly event. It should have new winners and change things up each year, depending on one's contributions and current personality during that year. Not for praising the creator or even a scenario where someone who people wanted to win one year but didn't was voted in the next, even though he became inactive after that first year. That just wouldn't make sense.
Now maybe we could make a special section for the creator, moderators, and other people people like for having made special contributions to this site, but we ought not to place these people in the hall of fame.
And I'm not saying we need to remove Mike--the vote is final, I just find it odd that people seemed to have voted so.
