    Posted: Mar/12/2010 at 2:43pm
I have been apart of some other forums in the past and some of them have this really cool forum section called the hall of fame for great and timeless threads, I was thinking SS should have something like that.  There have been so pretty epic threads gone by the wayside, Jessica vs. Jessica, some of the man card threads were brilliant, this whole burton/sierra issue, and perhaps the GTOAT (Greatest Thread of All Time) the Dustin like to Dance got served thread.

We would need to establish ground rules because the last thing we would want to 500 threads in there.  Heres what I was thinking:
1 thread max per month to enter the hall. (can be zero if there wasn't something hall of fame standards).
Must be voted on by the community and need to receive 75% of the votes to get in (just like Baseball).
To make thing easier only Staff and Expert members can nominate threads.
Threads can be pulled from the hall if they turn crappy (again by a Staff/expert nomination and a 75% vote from the community).

What do you guys think?

I would vote for that. This would be separate from the official threads I assume.
Bring it hard or don't bring it at all.

Ya I was thinking this would bring back some of great threads that have gone by the wayside.  They could be a 10 page thread or a 1 page thread, anything that deserves to be immortalized on this forum.

I was thinking it needs to be it own forum section (eg: board room, gear talk, classifieds etc.) and then once a thread gets voted in a Mod/Staff could move it into the section.

I really like that idea. I think that is a good idea to start by putting them in the "official threads" and if it work, then do all the programing work for the next update. 
I think to start we should put 5-10 threads in there at the start and to get people to know about it and how voting works.

Voting is simple enough. All you have to do is add another button up by "Post , Quote, Reply" that says "Hall of Fame". Enough votes and its in!

I like the idea, but wouldn't this be more of a "Recycled Idea" instead of a "New Idea"? I mean first sentence of the thread and you're pretty much admitting you stole it from other forums, there you go maybe "Stolen Idea" or wait we'll tone it down a little maybe "Poached Idea"?

Another poached idea from another forum...I think you should be able to see an overview of all your last posts made say for the last 24 hours, 48 hours or 1 week time frame.

It would be easier to keep track of your own posts as I sometimes reply then lose that topic because the forum moves so fast.
