Hall of Fame II
Voting Stage Rules
Welcome to DART’s second official Hall of Fame induction process! This thread is for the second stage of that process, namely, the voting stage. During this stage, users (you) may vote for the various nominees in each category (threads, debates, miscellaneous) for inclusion in the Hall of Fame. The three nominees with the most votes in each category will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
 
Any user will be able to vote for up to three nominees per category for a maximum of 9 votes per voting user. Voters may choose to vote for less than the maximum number if they choose. You may vote for any of the nominees who have advanced out of the nomination stage. The voting process will close at approximately 2:00pm, PST, on 09/02/20. Votes cast after the close of the process will not be considered.
 
When you vote, you are encouraged to offer a brief justification for, explanation of, or reason for your vote. Please also bold your votes to make them more visible. You are permitted to change your votes within reason.
 
Those nominees with the most votes (3 per category) will be inducted into the DART Hall of Fame. In the event of a tie preventing exactly 3 inductions per category, the voting window will be extended for just those tied nominees. Those inducted will be formally honored with entries in the Hall of Fame thread.
 
There are no prerequisites or eligibility requirements for users to participate in the Hall of Fame voting 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.
 
 
Notice
Due to an overwhelming majority within the nomination stage, the user category shall not be voted on this year. If there arises disagreement with this ruling, then voting on users may occur.
 
 
The Nominees
Choose up to three from each category.

My votes...

Debates
  1. Is Jesus the Messiah?
    While drilling down to one core issue, this was possibly the most in depth religious debate we’ve had. The educational value of this debate cannot be overstated.
  2. Resolved: The US should institute congressional term limits
    Bsh1's final debate. Incredibly close debate, and to this day I don't know how I would end up voting. Plus a truly relevant topic for affecting us all.
  3. Legalized Abortion (added 9/2)
    This is an odd one, since it offers no middle ground (all abortions legal, or all illegal... common sense says the issue at least a thousand times more complicated). Still, it was well argued, even making a feminist like me favor the con position.
    I will note that the Atheists BoP debate only trailed behind this one by the slightest of margins.

Threads
  1. I will stereotype debaters properly.
    It's just too much fun, and could be picked back up at any time.
  2. DART Bard, 1st Edition, 1/3/2020
    To me it reads like a sateric love letter to this community. I just wish there was a 2nd edition.
  3. Pure Lies (added 9/2)
    I have resisted voting for this for fear of doing such being misrepresented as bullying, but the thread is entertaining and perhaps insightful.

Misc.
If I understood them, I would probably be voting the enigmas.

  1. BrotherDThomas’ performance art
    Seriously, love him or hate him, BrotherDThomas is probably the highlight of the religious forum... Which probably confirms me as a pseudo-christian needing to be bible-slapped silly™ for talking about him instead of Jesus!
  2. Alpha Male
    I'm confident enough that I don't need to explain this.
  3. Rap Battles
    I've gone through periods where they annoy me, yet it's something so many users enjoy so it's worth celebrating.

I'm not positive that's necessary with it already pinned, but voter turnout does feel lower than it was for the harder nomination process.

Well it could be a waste of computer storage, but at least it violates literally nothing at all. Whatever: There are too little people here. We need more people on the forum than to complain about political matter.

Most people probably thought the nomination thread was the voting thread. Yes it sounds dumb, because it is, but consider the fact that many people thought that supas announcement of the upcoming hall of fame was the voting thread. That is the level we are dealing with.
