  • Apolytoner's Hall of Fame: June 2005

    4th 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. 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 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!

    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.
    December 2004 election's success means that future December elections be a minimum of 20 days long.
    MarkG for creating the CivGroup in February 2005.

    1) Rules for voting

    Everyone can vote for 3 posters

    Registered In/Before 1999- 4 points per vote
    Registered In 2000- 4 points per vote
    Registered In 2001- 3 point per vote
    Registered In 2002- 3 points per vote
    Registered In 2003- 2 point per vote
    Registered In 2004- 2 point per vote
    Registered In 2005- 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: 15-20 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, 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- then I had best remind you of the election of 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!


    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) and with satellite threads that link into the hall of fame in the following sections: CTP II MP, AC-General, Alt.Civ section-Clash 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 15-20 days.

    In December; voting will be 20 days unless the corollary act is enacted and voting is done during Christmas time; in that case voting will be extended to 30 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 clearK

    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.

    Googlie A well-known co-author of the epic Spartan Chronicles for AC, AC-fiction in general, and expert AC Diplomacy gamer, Googlie helped set up the 12-game Forum Wars series of a couple of years ago between Apolyton, ACOL and Civgaming as well as a couple of dozen individual game challenges.
    His love affair with SMAC goes back to old OWO forums and the demo release days when a bunch of us hacked the HEX editor to squeeze more than the 100 turns from that old demo version.

    Obituary Courtesy Ming
    Tazidude was a very active member of this site, and one of original Civ II MP players.
    He fought a long battle with cancer and passed away in January of 2000. While suffering with his illness, he used Civ II MP as an escape and a distraction. Even with death looking him right in the face, he continued to post and play... He was a friend to many... a great competitor... and it was truly sad when he finally had to leave the community because the pain got to be too much.

    Posthumous Induction
    Obituary Courtesy La Fayette
    Scouse Gits(2), or Ivor Wason was primarily a Civ II MP gamer who succumbed to cancer in 2003. He was much loved and well-regarded in the Civ II community.

    I would like to say a few words about what Ivor brought us, because he was not only a witty writer and a very strong strategist, but also one of those who gave most to the community, much more than the smiling daily 'robust constructive criticism' that all of us will remember:
    -Co-author of the most thorough study about starting techs (more than 5000 starts)
    -Co-creator of Apolyton's Great Library
    -'Very early lander', especially on big maps (samson and solo had almost specialized into small maps, when Ivor advised solo to have a look at some of his saves on bigger maps, and that was the starting point of solo's strategy guide)

    I remember him when he joined his first CtP PBEM game. He was a good and faithfull ally to the end and I had good time playing with him.

    He was a very social, stuborn and eccentric person but he had a great heart as well.

          Have you forgotten something?
          I have to think about my three votes but I recommend voting for Hydro. He certainly deserved it.

                Checking the rules... ok, it seems I can put another vote instead of Googlie.

                Thought that, if someone else gets more votes, the one with less would be kicked out.
