    Hello and welcome to another edition of the Apolyton Hall of Fame!

    What is it?
    The Apolyton Hall of Fame (HoF) is a list of people who contributed a lot to the community here on Apolyton. For example: Xin Yu was inducted in the HoF for his incredible strategy and MP contributions to the Civ2 section, yin26 for his fantastic work on 'The List' with suggestions for Civ3. Every member of the Hall of Fame has made great contributions to Apolyton and the Civilization community - these people and their accomplishments must be remembered by us all!

    If you don't recognize many names you probably haven't been here very long and/or hardly ever post outside this forum - in that case this HoF might be a good opportunity to learn something about them. That is why this Hall of Fame was created: to remember and to learn.

    Periodically, we hold a vote for the Apolytoners who we think contribute the most to Apolyton, the ones who make Apolyton what it is. The winners shall be inducted in the Hall of Fame and their names will live forever in the annals of APOLYTON!

    History
    The idea for the Hall of Fame was born in late 2000 as an outgrowth of the old Apolyton Army and Apolytoner of the Season Contests, seeking to honor the people of Apolyton in a more meaningful and structured way.

    The first edition was held in the Off Topic in December 2000 over a period of 3 days and is currently archived. The first election saw Markos and Dan, the owners and administrators of this site, and the first 10 posters inducted.

    Since then, the HoF vote has been held roughly 4 times a year with 11-14 total members being elected every year. Up until August 2002, the vote was held only in the Off Topic forum - from that time on it has been posted in other sections (first in Civ3, later also in SMAC, CtP1-MP, CtP2, etc).

    Special Thanks/Why we do certain things:
    Ming for archiving the first thread and helping manage the thread in its early days.
    As per suggestion by MOBIUS, the last vote's are carried onto the next votes.
    As per suggestion by Solver, all previous votes are carried onto the next votes.
    As per suggestion by Martin Guhman, December votes are extended till 6 days.
    As per suggestion by Locutus, introduction revised.

    This edition:
    Welcome to the March 2004 edition of the APOLYTON HALL OF FAME

    (3 Members to be inducted this session)
    (Only 12 total will be elected this year)
    You have approximately 7-8 days to vote [Until next Sunday/Monday).

    Please vote today and elect some of your brethren to join the historic Hall; consisting of such hallowed names as Adam Smith, DanQ, MarkG, Giant Squid, St Leo, Ming, Snapcase, oedo, rah and more.

    So now is your chance to decide: who should be inducted in the HoF this time?

    1) Rules for voting

    Everyone can vote for 3 posters

    Registered In/Before 1999- 4 points per vote
    Registered In 2000- 3 points per vote
    Registered In 2001- 3 point per vote
    Registered In 2002- 2 points per vote
    Registered In 2003- 2 point per vote
    Registered In 2004- 1 point per vote

    -You may not vote for yourself.
    -All ¡¥frivolous¡¦ votes are thrown out.
    -Giving your vote to someone merely because they ask is considered a frivolous vote.

    No vote changing once you have voted for someone; unless you accidentally voted for someone already in the hall.

    You may only vote once in the hall of fame (for 3 people) IF you try to vote more than once ALL of your votes will be made void.

    Time Limit for voting is: 7 Days Roughly¡ Usually when the voting starts dying down. Except in Christmas times when the voting will be 12 days... Except in special cases when voting will be extended for an unprecedented 17 days.


    2) Amendments

    a) Purgings

    Members will be purged from the voting rolls if they received 0 new votes in the month of election. This allows the hall to keep up-to-date, and keeps it from having to reset completely every month. Thus, the hall worthy posters will continue to gather votes day in and day out because their contributions to Apolyton are timeless.

    b) Posthumous Inductions

    In the regrettable case where a popular member has perished, the Hall of Fame has the ability to posthumously induct him/her into the hall based upon popular opinion. The first class of posthumous inductees (December 2003) included such forum greats as Tazidude, Scouse Gits(2), and faded glory.

    3) FAQ:

    “Trust me, an on-topicer will never win”

    What about Xin Yu? What about Velociryx? Both good posters who are currently in the hall!
    And if you think that being interviewed by Solver is a prerequisite for an on-topicer getting into the hall- remember Paul!

    And remember, many of these ¡¥mostly-OT posters¡¦ used to be huge on-topic posters back around 1998-99! Ming for example, Giant Squid for another!

    Disclaimer:

    The Hall of Fame is based on whoever people vote for, and as Lazarus and the Gimp stated so eloquently: ¡§"The compilers of this list cannot rule out the possibility of inductees being a bunch of utter ****s" Thus. Please. Don¡¦t shoot the messenger.

    Where is the Hall of Fame usually posted?

    From December 2000 to August 2002, the Hall of Fame had only been posted in the Off Topic forums; with occasional forays into the Apolyton/Community section. However, nowadays you can find the Apolyton Hall of Fame in the OT (main) Civ III (main) and with satellite threads that link into the hall of fame in the following sections: CTP II MP, AC-General, Alt.Civ section-„³Clash of Civilizations (b/c it has 2nd most posts in alt.civ), Civ III DemoGame sections.

    Also, the Hall of Fame is currently lobbying to become a news item.

    ”¨How long is voting?”

    Voting will continue for roughly 7 days.

    In December; voting will be 12 days unless the corollary act is enacted and voting is done during Christmas time; in that case voting will be extended to 17 days in order to accommodate all traveling voters)

    Why Do People who received no votes last time expire ?

    Their votes expire and they are zeroed and kicked off the list because they were not found to be interesting at the time of the last vote or two. This is done so as to keep the hall clear¡K

    This new process certainly keeps the hall current (a la Major League Baseball¡¦s Hall of Fame)

    I was recommended not to carry over votes at all, but will continue that tradition, at least for this election because of the idea that we don¡¦t just want ¡§flavor of the month¡¨ posters elected. We want people who have contributed over a long period of time.

    Doc - Of DrSpike fame. He came second in Formula 3.
    I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).

            All you spammers shouldn't think you can use this as an excuse to post three times in a row to get +3 and three votes from me.

              And you get +3 in just posting that.

              I have to think a little longer before nominating anyone.

                  I am already in by a ruling by the pope on an arcane reference and agreed to by convocation of the princes of the Empire. Or something like that. But feel free to vote for me anyway.

                      Thanks Skanky, but I think its probably a wasted vote as I'm neither a major OTF poster, nor a Civ3 demogamer

                            Dammit Skanky I wanted to vote for you, but now it looks like a reciprocal vote.

                            Ah, what the hell.

                            Spamky Burns and Spamski, for services to amusing spam. (if you can't decipher my oh so difficult code DC I mean Skanky and Jamski)

                            Third vote goes to FrustatedPoet, hopefully he shall return to civilization (not just the game) soon.

                              FP is next on my list, but I have been trying to get Korn in the HoF ever since I joined. Many thanks Doc.

                              Jam, if nothing else, my votes protect all your previous votes from expiring.
