The more I think about it, the more complicated it seems to be...
I see the need for a page with a nice set of great songs (let's say something of 10 to 50?) that would otherwise be buried deep in the forum pages.
The most critical thing is which ones to choose and how to justify the selection, because it's all a matter of taste.
The HoF icon (don't use it yet) was one idea, but not the ideal way.
A poll would be nice, but starting a poll with every upload would be too much.
Sorting by the number of song downloads is another possible way, but older songs would profit from it more than recent uploads.
Another way would be "let the admin('s) decide" - but I don't want to disappoint anyone. Maybe a page with all songs uploaded ever combined with a rating mod would be nice, but that would need some (in fact a lot) time.
This is the current state - I'm still in the
process. Ideas welcome...
I agree on the pol Idea. To me the following sounds line a good idea :
Whenever someone wants to nominate a song for the hall of fame the Icon can be used, and he or she has to send a PM to Gerd and me
(to start with)
Since for now it's me and Gerd that are able to modify all posts in the forum, we can put that Icon in the original first post of the topic introducing the song
Secondly we could crate a poll in the hall of fame discussion board... -mhh Gerd, we might need 2 sub boards total, for the HOF-.
1 HOF board
, Only single post topics, containing the songs topics. (Only Mods/admins can create topics here, no replies allowed)
2 HOF candidate and Discussion board
, a single topic per nominated song, containing a pol and replies (members can vote and reply.)
Now to be sure it's a fair HOF, maybe we should let only let active members (more than xx posts) vote in the pol and hide the vote results for everyone.
After a pre agreed period (
one or two weeks ?) the songs enters the hall of fame
. The nomination topic gets closed and locked after that.
Since we are all grown-ups here I feel we should be able to handle our songs not entering the HOF
without starting irritated discussions and replies
. Anyway the BOFH aka HBL will use the big red delete button for those if needed
Another thing is that we all should be proud of the HOF and nominate songs that really .... really should get that extra attention
This way (almost) everyone gets a say in the Ay or nay
How about this ?
