The Debater's Hall of Fame Reborn - Nominations

No Caption Provided

Purpose of the Hall of Fame

Contrary to what most may believe, the HOF is about more than just back patting and recognition. It's about endorsing the values we want to see more of on our forum. There is an old saying, you catch more flies with honey...and it's true. Recognize the things you like with praise and more will want to do them for the recognition. This is your chance to positively influence our community.

Please no negative comments about any user or anyone's choice. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

- Wyldsong

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.

- EmperorThanos

I still kinda wanna get in here so I'm gonna campaign a little for myself in-case anyone is interested in tossing me a nom.

Debate Archives

I'd like to say some of my better debates include

vs indominus

Vs Streak (Dr Strange Vs Amalgam)

Silver Surfer vs Superman (Annihilators vs Justice leage)

The last one is more or less just me exposing a troll but it does, like the others showcase what I'd like to think I'm good at. Verifying the context of feats and examining them critically, using solid logic to argue, not committing many argumentative fallacies and also pointing out poorly represented or misinterpreted instances. I'd like to think in terms of pure reasoning abilities I'm up there, in regards to my ability to make a concise and logically sound argument. If I'm wrong its usually due to my itself premise being incorrect, however I try my best not to make contradictory and non-fallacious arguments. In terms of knowledge I have quite a bit to go I'll admit, my goal is to be on the level of users like dondave and killemall who have near encyclopedic knowledge of feats. I'll also admit that sometimes I myself can miss the context of a feat, and my old-school style of debating is controversial for sure, which I'm working on adapting to current viewpoints.

These are people I feel should be in the list. They've shown awesome debating skills, and they never came down to act toxic in debates.

The two clear standouts to me who aren't on that list

  • @toratorn(if he gets allowed/is allowed) - Easily the most knowledgable comic debater I've ever debated against, knows more about characters I'm "experts" on than me. Also singlehandedly changed comic debating on the vine and changed a lot of comic "experts" and "respected" comic debaters minds when it comes to consistency/scaling/quantifiable feats, which I can't say for anyone else.
  • @bladeoffury - Easily the most creative debater on the vine, bar none. His strategies might be dumb sometimes, but going into a tourney with overpowered characters and doing that well isn't that impressive, going in with random street tiers and running shit is impressive.

Both of these deserve to be in the HoF imo due to their creativity/knowledge, regardless of how you feel about their opinions or even their actual debating skill.

@graysonblake: @nightrider1000: Hi, I want to emphasize the requirements for nominations, as listed above, which include:

To make nominations, you must have a minimum post count of 1000.

Also, just for everyone to note, the person you are nominating has to have been a member for at least a year.

Unless I misread, I get limitless nominations, correct? And it seems that everyone on that list is a nominee by default anyway but I still want to make it known I would nominate:

Outside the list, I nominate

and if I am allowed to nominate inactive users, I choose to nominate ValorKnight as well. In my opinion, these debaters deserve their nomination because they have some combination of top-notch debating skill, attitude, track record, experience and contribution to the site, as well as my general respect.

Besides my nominations, I would like to give an honorable mention to those in the nominations list who deserve praise and recognition, plenty of whom rival, if not surpass my nominations in more than one area:

  • HittheAssassin
  • Pics
  • maestromage
  • defiant_will
  • gilgameshthepimp
  • professorrespect
  • alextheboss
  • shirso
  • mass
  • rbt

I also want to give a special shout out to @viking1205 and @vengefulshot for their masterful debating as part of the Avatar community on this site, which far and away is the best community of debaters on this site.

@higherpower: Thanks for the nomination! Not sure if you're aware, but just in case, your tags don't let me know who tagged me, they just light up the bell without listing your name or message. Also, when I click on your profile it shows up as a 404 error. Not sure why.

I’m fairly new here, but from what I’ve seen, @morningstar999 and @delein have been great, although we had some disagreements. Solid debaters and good sports. @number3561 also gets one from me, he keeps me on my toes with my Bleach theorisations, and he knows his stuff.

Folks, I'm sorry but I am deleting all nominating posts that are made by anyone who less than 1000 posts.

AGAIN: YOU CANNOT MAKE A NOMINATION UNLESS YOU HAVE AT LEAST 1000 POSTS.

We love you for your enthusiasm, that is great. However we have to follow our rules, which are set up to both avoid trolling and to make sure that nominations come from a certain level of experience on the part of the nominator. That is not to say that the people whose posts that I deleted are trolls; you seemed sincere and we appreciate that. If you can't make a nomination now, hopefully you can make some nominations in the next round several months from now.

You can still be a part of this conversation, but you can't make nominations, and I am deleting them so we don't have clutter that makes the total count harder to figure out.

Nominating @frozen and @hellothere5432

I appreciate the nomination, but I'm not eligible as I was inducted into the 2014 Hall of Fame.

I wasn't aware that you cannot nominate people already in the HOF. My bad then

Nominating @claymore1998 who should've long gotten into the HoF. Her debates with other HoF'ers and various forum posts all showcase her knowledge and argumentative ability and I plan on doing a lil campaigning for her later if I have to.

I've added up the all the votes I see so far. The following list is the number of votes received by everyone who has been nominated in this thread--i.e. NOT those who are already listed as nominees in the OP.

Remember that you need to get at least 3 votes to become an official Nominee and move on to the next round.

Voting is still open--You can still provide a second or third vote to anyone on this list, and you can still vote for people who have not yet been nominated at all.

I have not gone through to check yet if everyone here has been here for a year, which is a requirement to get into the HOF.

Anyone else can feel free to check my math. There was a vote for toratorn, but as a banned member he can't be nominated. There are also some other votes for people who are already on the nominee list in the OP.

ONE current vote

@mantraxsp

@pandalumina

@killbilly

@number3561

@hellothere5432

@rdcdesmond

@claymore1998

@cocacolaman

TWO current votes

@majinblackheart

@killerqueen

@streak619

@hittheassasin

@kingcrimson

@fetts

@thevivas

@amendment50

@stormshadow_x

@delein

THREE current votes (these people have enough votes to move on)
