@theacidskull is my only nomination. Should've been in there years ago in all honesty. He has knowledge, debating skill and a wonderful attitude on the vine in multiple areas of the community, not many people are more deserving than he is.

Wait voting is over? I know he doesn't get on, but pope was imo one of the best debators on the site, and he was mad respectful.

Voting's not over, but nominations is over.

Per request I take back my vote for MysticMedivh.

In light of that, I replace it with a vote for @wenjunchew

After reviewing some things a little more, I decided I wish to recind all the votes I made. Apologies to those who I voted for.

@claymore1998: Don't change who you are for these forums. Whether you make it or not, people think enough of you and your knowledge that you are getting votes. Keep doing what you do my friend=)

Also, While the current runners of the HOF know this, it makes me extremely sad to know that some of my old school debate buddies will never make it in. :/

I know my friend, but I am thinking of a little side project in regards to this. You want in on the discussion? Being one of the "old guard", your input would be welcome.

After reviewing some things a little more, I decided I wish to recind all the votes I made. Apologies to those who I voted for.

@wyldsong: Should wenjunchew really be counted in this ?? I may be wrong, but to my understanding he was basically a joke to the entire site because he claimed things like Batman beating Flash and Galactus, and I hear all the time stuff like "Pray forgiveness to Chew for saying Batman doesn´t beat Thanos" and stuff like that, I feel like the votes he is getting are just for laughs and jokes, and I feel like a place for a Hall of Famer would be wasted if he gets in just for the sake of jokes and some laughs.

@thor_parker82: I personally don't know anything about wenjunchew, but I have heard similar sentiments in other circles. That being said, I am basically impartial here in the nom and voting process. There are a few people that I feel should not be on the nominee list, and few people I feel shouldn't be getting votes, but it isn't my call to include or exclude. Being something voted on by the community, it is up to you guys to make that call on who gets in. Personally, no, I don't think anyone that isn't actually successfully debating should be on this list whatsoever, but as a facilitator, I am just recording the will of the people.

That being said, also being "will of the people", and considering the number of complaints I am hearing, I will look into a few things in regards to them.

@wyldsong: in terms of criteria, are we supposed looking at how someone performs in CaV's? (not talking about wins/loss) just general performance?

Or is there criteria at all?

There is no criteria. Just who you feel made a positive impact on the forums.

Don't think there are any new debaters good enough? Not challenging you or anything. You do read and vote on a lot of CaVs so you are petty knowledgeable on most debaters.

It's not that they aren't good enough, it just that I haven't seen anyone nominated really give me that "wow factor". There have been posters which have made me say that, but they're all in the HOF already. Like I read through a higorm CaV recently and they blew my mind. That kind of thing.

Yeah, I get what you´re saying, but at this point, I don´t think anyone will complain if you remove WenjunChew, because otherwise, judjging by the votes, he´s going to make it to the HOF and a spot will just be wasted, and not only that, but I also feel that people will look at the HOF and when they see WenjunChew in there, the HOF will instantly lose any credibility.

Like I said, people who are voting for him are just doing it for laughs, it´s like when people go into threads asking for neck feats, they don´t seriously mean it, it´s just a joke.

I'm voting for

@allstarsuperman

@bringnit

@tparks

@fetts

@omgomgwtfwtf

All succinct and clear, and being/having been useful, involved citizens of the battle forum.

There are a lot of people I respect on that list, and I could have voted for twice as many.

Going in another direction, I don't know who this WenjunChew guy was, but I hope people aren't just voting for someone as a joke.

I guess I'll flog myself for votes a bit: I don't do much in the way of tournaments or CAVs, which are the easiest way to make your debating record clear, but I've been around for some years now and I hope I've got a reputation for a fairly logical, even-handed, even-tempered style. I tend to be most involved in the Battle of the Week these days, and I've had my arguments featured in the "best arguments of the week" or whatever you want to call them TWENTY SIX times over the years, from when k4tzm4n ran it, up through Cadence and then jashro44's current run. I'm pretty sure there's no one else even close to that many featured arguments, although let me know if I'm wrong. I think that shows a pretty consistent record of being able to make good, clear arguments that stand out within a context that features many other strong debaters.

Plus, I'm closing in on 350 battles that I've made over the years (347 right now, including 24 of my bracket battles) making me--again, as far as I know--one of the most prolific battle makers on the site. As well as some pretty decent respect threads for characters like Elektra, various Grendels, and Lady Bullseye (updates on some of these, and Black Widow, coming soon). So I think I qualify as someone who's had some influence on the battles forum over time.

Anyway--vote for Owie!

I agree, I may been a asshole myself, and if someone wish me out, fine, understandable, I fudge up I can live with that. At least even I tried to contribute to the site and be a debater. Wenjun Chew was a running gag for Batman trolling. How the hell is he allowed? Whats the purpose of this event if we allow him of all people in? Where is the basic standards?

We have standards for nominations, like must be on the site so long. So why is their no standards on someone who is famous for trolling and Batman jokes? I think some new standard needs to be a debater who actually debates.

@wyldsong, @jedixman, @jashro44 that needs to be rectify.

Wow guys! Real sick meme voting for WenjunChew! God I just love memes. Memes memes memes. It's such a funny meme.

Christ, this is why debating on Comic Vine is so mediocre if not downright asinine nowadays. You people have no standards. With people voting for Wenjun debating is quite literally a joke on here. Just have the actual deserved HoF debaters steamroll this new generation already.

SMH. Just SMH. I struggle to find the words to express my disappointment.
