  • Apolytoners' Hall of Fame: December 2008

    3rd Post down from here contains VOTING RESULTS!

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

    What is it?
    The Apolytoners Hall of Fame (HoF) is a list of people who contributed a lot to the community here on Apolyton. 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!

    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!

    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).

    This edition
    Welcome to the December 2008 edition of the APOLYTONERS HALL OF FAME

    (5 Members to be inducted this session; Next Session: approx: July 2008 [2 elected then])
    (Around 8 total will be elected this year)
    You have approximately 20 days to vote [Until January 10th).

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

    POST 2

    1) Rules for voting

    Everyone can vote for 3 posters

    Hall of Fame Member- ** 6 points per vote
    Registered In 1998- 5 points per vote
    Registered In 1999- 5 points per vote
    Registered In 2000- 4 points per vote
    Registered In 2001- 4 points per vote
    Registered In 2002- 4 ** points per vote
    Registered In 2003- 3 points per vote
    Registered In 2004- 3 points per vote
    Registered In 2005- 2 points per vote
    Registered In 2006- 2 points per vote
    Registered In 2007- 2 ** points per vote
    Registered In 2008- 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.
    -New as of March 2008, Hall of Fame Members get 6 points per 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: 20 Days for this time.

    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, and Scouse Gits(2).

    3) FAQ:

    Trust me, an on-topicer will never win

    What about Xin Yu? Velociryx? Darsnan? As long there is a will, an on-topicer will be inducted.


    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 Apolytoners hall of fame in the OT (main) Civ III (main), Civ IV (main) and with satellite threads that link into the hall of fame in the following sections: CTP II MP, Civ II-General or Creation, AC-General, CIV IV MP, and Civ III DemoGame sections.

    ”How long is voting?”

    Voting will continue for roughly 20 days.

    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…

    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, because we don’t merely want “flavor of the month” posters elected. The persons who should be elected to the hall should have contributed to the site over a long period of time.

                Very difficult time I have to say.

                I trust Lord Shiva will be in, so I hope he forgives I don't vote for him. I'm tempted to vote for wiglaf, but he's too low for it to matter.

                For outstanding Civ contribution:

                i'm a hall of famer, so 6 points each
                might i add, what a cool new policy
