    Hall of Fame II
    Nomination Stage Rules
     Welcome to DART's second official Hall of Fame induction process! This thread is for the first stage of that process, namely, the nominations stage. During this stage, users (you) may propose nominees in four categories (users, threads, debates, and miscellaneous) for inclusion in the Hall of Fame. The nominees with the most nominations in each category (approx. 4-6 per category) will advance to the second stage of the process.
     
    Any user will be able to propose up to three nominees per category for a maximum of 12 nominations per nominating user. Nominators may choose to nominate less than the maximum number if they so choose. You may nominate any of your content, but not yourself as a user. The nominating process will close sometime on 08/30/20 (most likely morning around 10:00am, PST).
     
    When you propose a nomination, you are permitted nay encouraged to offer a brief justification for, explanation of, or reason for your nomination. Please also bold your nominations to make them more visible. You are permitted to change your nominations within reason.
     
    There are no formal criteria for determining who/what can be nominated except that it must be on DART and cannot be a previous winner within said category. However, if moderation concludes that a nomination is wholly and blatantly incongruous with the purpose of the HOF (that purpose being to highlight good, notable, and/or consequential inductees), we reserve the right to withhold forwarding that nomination to the second stage of the process.
     
    There are no prerequisites or eligibility requirements for users to participate in the Hall of Fame nominating process, except that they have an account on DART and are not voting/nominating from more than one account. Importantly, please don't engage in coordinated vote trading and such, as that would be incongruous.
     

    Categories
    • Users: A way to honor any noteworthy user for their contributions to the site and community.
    • Debates: A way to highlight must read debates.
    • Threads: A way to highlight must read or at least influential threads.
    • Miscellaneous: Anything else, particularly but not exclusively for comedic value.


    Let's Begin!
    With all that said, let the nominating process begin! If you have questions, feel free to ask. Good luck to everyone and best wishes on a fantastic Hall of Fame process. This is a wonderful site and community, and there is so much greatness out there to recognize! We look forward to honoring those contributions and users who have made this site what it is!

    I will start with my nominations. These are the two users I think deserve to be in. I am deciding a third

    oromagi
    What else can I say? He is a talented debater and is good at challenging BoP's. He knowledge and has contributed a lot to the site in general with his mafia and his debates. He is a valued user

    Ragnar
    Ragnar has proven himself to be a capable moderator for DART. He has made some appropriate decision and difficult decisions as well. He is someone who has stepped up after some drama

    Thread

    When Utopia Crumbles LIVE THREAD
    While this is my fanfic thread, this had MUCH more of an impact due to the fact that this caused a new wave of moderators to form, and was the most impactful thread for the site in genera

    Marvel Cinematic Universe Heroes Mafia 
    A legendary mafia game, currently with the record for most posts, and almost beat the DDO record! Insane!

    Tyranny at Lafayette Park
    Very relevant thread that had thought proactive discussion

    I'll just focus on debates for now, come back to users later:

    Resolved: The US should institute congressional term limits
    bsh1 vs. blamonkey

    Abortion should be illegal
    SkepticalOne vs. PGA2.0

    Ethics of cloning and genetic engineering in humans

    USERS: 

    1. OROMAGI - Oro is still undefeated and his rating is the year Germany remilitarized the Rhineland (1936). No elaboration needed.

    2. RAGNAR - An invaluable user and moderator. Without him, the site crumbles... Both in the moderation realm and the debate realm. In fact, pretty sure his votes are the only thing keeping the majority of debates from being ties. He is perhaps the user I respect most.

    3. SUPADUDZ - A fun user with almost unlimited energy, this guy is #1 in the forums at almost 10,000 posts. Jesus Christ. He is also a talented debater and a valued advisor for the mod team. In many ways, Supa's energy keeps the site going. 

    DEBATES:

    Legalized Abortion
    Vector vs MisterChris

    Resolved: The US should institute congressional term limits
    bsh1 vs. blamonkey

    The Pro-Choice Position Should Not be Compared with Language or Actions Used by the Nazis
    PGA2.0 vs Whiteflame

    THREAD:

    1. I am being banned over pure lies.
    Author: RationalMadman,17 days ago

    This one is a jumble of comedy and drama that is virtually unbeatable. Probably will be my only forum nomination.

    Debates:

    Resolved: Atheists have a burden of Proof
    CalebEr vs Intelligence_06

    Resolved: On Balance, Charter Schools are Beneficial to the Quality of Education in the United States.
    Seldiora vs Supadudz

    Legalized Abortion
    Vector vs MisterChris

    Users:

    Oromagi- Flawless record of 86:0. Honestly, no one has beaten it yet.

    Supadudz- He is very contributional in this community. From being active in Mafia games to hosting polls to discussing useful(or even useless) ideas, he is really a very contributional user.

    Hm, like the part where Ragnar posted a link to RM saying "I now have permission to reveal this info" and RM responded to that link by saying "That was me asking for permission"? That was pretty funny I admit. I will consider possibly supporting this nomination.

    My third nomination for user is Speedrace

    He's been an active member, was a forum mod for a bit, and is someone who contributes to the site in general always willing to help. He's one of the nicest people I've met on DART and while we differ politically, I'm glad me and him can have civil discourse. He's also talented at mafia

    None other has so good a claim;;
    Put Supadudz in the Hall of Fame.
    Don't neglect to add his name;
    Put Supadudz in the Hall of Fame.

    Su-pa-pa-dudz, Su-pa-pa-dudz.
    Su-pa-pa-dudz, Su-pa-pa-dudz.
    Su-pa-pa-dudz, Su-pa-pa-dudz.
    Su-pa-pa-dudz, Su-pa-pa-dudz.

    If he doesn't get in, t'would be a shame;
    Put Supadudz in the Hall of Fame.
    Once again, repeat the same:
    Put Supadudz in the Hall of Fame.

    Users:
    Supadudz: Irrepressibly friendly, tremendously active, and almost universally well-liked, Supadudz is one of DART's most valuable members. He's near 10000 forum posts, is extremely active in mafia, and has competed in 27 debates and rap battles. He is also a very creative user, as evidenced by his collection of poetry, raps, and songs that he's written. He would be a worthy addition to the Hall of Fame.

    oromagi: He's undefeated at 86 wins and counting. His style of debate is well-organized and logical, yet also interjected with some humor. This has allowed him to reach a rating nearly 200 points ahead of his nearest rival. But more than just being a good debater, he is a good person. This combination of formidable debating skills and an approachable friendliness should earn him a place in the Hall of Fame.

    Ragnar: He is the second-ranked active debater on the site, third overall. Some consider him to be the most skilled debater, although he denies this with genuine modesty. He also applies his talents as the site's deputy moderator, a duty at which he excels. His fairness as a moderator and talent as a debater shows where he belongs: the Hall of Fame.

    Debates:
    Resolved: The US should institute congressional term limits
    bsh1 vs. blamonkey
    A masterpiece from two of DART's best debaters. It really helped me understand both sides of the debate.

    I'll probably nominate more debates later.

    Forums:
    DART Bard, 1st Edition, 1/3/2020
    Presented without comment.

    I'll probably add more threads and a miscellaneous item later.

    He was the former chief moderator. If you read the Utopia Crumbles thread that was nominated, you can find out why he is no longer the chief moderator.

    There is one each for two abortion debates. they aren't the same people overall and just not the same discourse.
