Hall of Fame Round XV
Purpose of the Hall of Fame
The Purpose of the HOF endorse the values we wish to see in the Battle forums by giving recognition to those who best encompass these values and have had a positive influence on this community. Of course this is also to recognize those who have shown exception debating skill during their time on vine.
Please be respectful when voting and respect other voters choices. It is acceptable to express any dissatisfaction with people being voted, but please do so in a respectful manor and provide constructive criticism.
- Do no vote for anyone already in the HOF.
- The top 5 people with 20 or more votes will get in.
- Everyone can vote for on the nominee list below. Only those on the list.
- You cannot vote for someone twice
- You cannot vote for yourself, though campaigning is allowed. Only one campaign post per page.
- For your vote to be counted you must tag the person you vote for.
- You need a minimum of 500 posts to make a vote.
- Please base votes on the behaviors of the debaters listed and the talent they have shown in their debates
- No derogatory comments about other members choices
- If you can provide a little bit of reasoning for your vote.
- Feel free to research people on the nominee's list
There are 2 new rules I'm implementing for this edition. The first is a voting rule. From now on for your vote to be counted you must tag the person you are voting for or write out their full name correctly. For example. Only @emperorthanos- or @emperorthanos- will be accepted. Anything else such as Emperorthanos , Emperor Thanos, ET, emperer thanos etc. will not be counted. Nominees should get people to do this as well or some of your votes may not be counted.
The second rule was something suggested to us in the previous edition which is a minimum vote count. A minimum of 20 votes is required to be in the running for the HOF. So only the top 5 with more than 20 votes will be inducted. If only 2 people end up with 20 votes, then only 2 will get in. This is a trial run for the rule which I may get rid off in the future.
If you have any new rules that you would like to suggest please PM. As you can see I will take them in account for future editions.

I will start by saying I don't expect to actually make it in the HoF, but since I got nominations I may as well give give this a shot. I think the best way to show that I should at the very least be considered is to show my debates against some of others who got nominated and that I would be competing with for the HoF.
- Me vs Higherpower(Win,3-0)
- Me vs Deathhero61(win via concession)
- Me vs TheRedViper(loss,3-1)
- Me vs DarthJhawk(win via concession)
- Me vs Deathhero61(Win,3-0)

Campaign Post #1
So it looks like it's HoF season again, I guess I'll have to run a campaign" or myself, but before I do here is my arbitrary theme song. Now without further ado, here are a few cool things about me that may persuade you to vote for me.

Keep in mind this isn't a list of characters that I can use it is a list of characters that I have used. As you can see, there are 70 characters from Marvel, DC, the insides, cartoons, video games, manga, anime, CBMs and basically every medium where you can collect feats. That's versatility right there.
It's also not as if I just pick up a character then drop them right after, I actually consider myself to be one of the more knowledgeable users when it comes to characters like Captain Marvel, Kraven the Hunter, Injustice Superman, the Shocker, Machine Man, Reed Richards, the Darkness and a couple others.
While I am not as active as I once was, especially now that I am self-exiled (well, at least I try to be), I was once one of the most active battle forum users on CV. Now, I'm not just saying that, this statement is based off a CV ranking. See around February or March of this year, they actually reset the Top Posters list and as you can see, I was ranked 4th place.
Asides from that I have also participated in more than 57 CaVs\tournaments (that list is slightly outdated, I think I have around 59 now). I also hosted one of the most active scenarios I have seen on the Vine, as it lasted for 164 pages and it wasn't even finished, for reference the CCC scenario had finished at 48 pages. So yeah, I was one heck of an active boy.
I was always a positive member from the start, and to this day I haven't got into any big disputes nor has a mod warned me for breaking rules. So it shouldn't be that surprising to learn that I try to contribute to the Vine every once in a while.
My first community project on here, which the title of this section nods at, is a blog known as the Community's Finest (which was a lot like the Daily Debater in the early days except more sitewide), a mod even pinned the debut thread. Now, I stopped doing that series after the second one since the other people working on it got too bussy. But I didn't stop trying to better the community.
I did things such as creating a guide on how to better use CV from mobile, creating a guide showing when to use the quote function(which was also pinned for about a month), helping tally votes on the last HoF, creating a HoF Jr thread which praised up and coming debaters (and btw all the winners there are nominees now), creating a CV conduct thread which spotlights appropriate behaviour on CV and I plan on creating something called Hellstrom's boot camp soon as well which will aim to help guide newer users.
Let me tell you a story. See, when I first started out I thought I was doing really well for myself as a debater, I had won my first CaVand made it to the finals of the first tourney I had entered in, after all. However, shortly after I started winning at CaVs and tourneys, I encountered HoFers\upcoming HoFers who halted my victories. First, there was the finals I lost, then Krle beat me, then ET did I wasn't even getting a single vote most of the time, and this continued until my win-loss ratio was looking really shoddy.
At that point, I told myself that I didn't want to keep getting wrecked, so I tried to improve myself by debating people more in my league and listening to what the voters were saying. Now, I started to notice that even though the votes were against me, I was still getting positive feedback which gave me hope to keep trying. This comment especially encouraged me since it was very early on and I was facing two great users.
Eventually, I was able to gain a vote against a HoFer (HoFer), and while that doesn't sound like much, it was still pretty cool (especially since at the time I was eating losses for breakfast). But you know what was cooler? Being able to tie Owie in a CaV. Now admittedly, I would have liked that CaV to have more votes or be more conclusive but I would be lying if I said that I wasn't happy to finally not lose to a HoFer..............
Then Chimeroid straight up wrecks me in another debate soon after. But luckily I got an opportunity to get back at him in one of the most prestigious tourneys currently on the Vine. And you can bet your shiny blue butt that I poured a lot into that debate, so much that CV wasn't allowing me to post since my posts were too long. But that didn't stop me, so I made an even longer post later but just broke it up into two parts. Now with all that effort, it was basically all or nothing, and I was really nervous about how the votes would go.........but wouldn't you know it, I won the match. Finally, I won against a HoFer.
After that, I started to win more often. Victory, after victory, after victory. I was on a hostreak, and it's still ongoing.
However, this is also the reason that I will withdraw. Nvm, I already got votes so it's too late for that.
That is all. Good Luck!
Also thanks you to Supremegeneration, Vertigo- and Krleavenger for helping me with this.
