Message Board Hall of Fame

RE: Message Board Hall of Fame
Since you asked me a direct question, I will respond, although I think jaykayzee did a pretty good job of it already.

Why do you feel the need to exclude someone because they left for some time? Are they suddenly no longer a contributing member when they come back? The site was seriously broken for quite a while. The fact people stayed away for a while should not matter.
Quote:It's just like having a new trader send first until they prove themselves to be good traders,

Why shouldn't new members and those that left have to prove themselves to be worthy of being nominated to the Beckett HOF, and IMHO, those people that left have to start over new again, just like traders that left have too send first.
I've never heard the 'rule' that established traders who left must send first again when they come back. Even IF there is such a rule, it doesn't apply here.
Quote:and yes, Beckett's is trying to get new members to use the site, but that still doesn't mean that they are going to recognize the new members over the LOYAL members,
those members that have stuck through all the site problems etc...
Reread what I said... I said Beckett is trying to get members BACK. I said nothing about them getting NEW memvers. That is irrelevant to the topic. They want established members back and you want to exclude them when they DO come back. Some of those members might take exception to that. I left and I came back... I know I take exception to your exclusionary ways.
Quote:Why should they deserve the same benefits that the loyal members receive? As far as I am concerned they don't until they earn the right to receive those benefits.
Then perhaps you should have nothing to do with this, other than to suggest the HoF. You are too biased to see things clearly. You certianly do not lack for arrogance, that's for sure.
Quote:Seriously the requirements should be as follows

1. Loyalty
2. Respect
3. Contribution
4. Helpfulness
5. Membership status

Why are you taking this so personally anyways about the people that left not being elgible until they prove themselves?
I take exclusions very seriously. I'm sorry you are so glib about them. Membership into ANY Hall of Fame is never dependent upon "Loyalty". It is solely dependent upon their contribution to their given field. If anything, they often champion those that left or did little for a long time, then returned later to their prior form... Comeback Player of the Year, Honorary Achievement Awards, etc.

Additionally, I was gone for two of the reasons mentioned by jaykayzee... In 2010, I was unemployed from January to October, and decided to step down as moderator because my hobby habits had to stop. And at Thanksgiving, my mother passed away. So, because of what I consider two legitimate reasons to be gone for an extended period of time, I wouldn't be allowed in to your Hall of Fame... not that I would want to, given the current conditions for entry.
