    that was an old rule. It's since been rescinded.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    I'm ok with everything that's decided, but, I'm flattered but also opposed to let one of the awards carry my name for the arguments that Kstat has already presented.

    I'm hereby taking my name off the list for nominees with regards to best non-American poster this year. I've always felt very, very honoured and grateful winning this award or becoming runner-up.

    But, I feel this year it's time someone else got the award and since I don't think I had a very "strong" year, there's definitely several who are more deserving IMHO. Even more so by withdrawing I wouldn't be "stealing" votes, because I've been long here or have posted a lot or am maybe more well-known, who should go to other posters.

    My nominees for this specific award this year are:
    Bellisimo, GO!!!, Sweabs and Cordobes.

    Regards,

    Mourning

    Id request that you let the forum take your name off the ballot by letting them vote for you one more time. By the rules I set up, one more award puts you in the hall and retires you from the list.

    You may not even win it this year for the reasons you mentioned, who knows?

    i appreciate where you are coming from Mourning but I think if you indeed have an "off" year...pretty sure the voting would reflect that...so i don't think you should bow out of the awards unless of course you just don't want to take part in it altogether, cause at the end of the day, i don't think anyone is really forced in to participate with these things...all for fun and passing time in the end.

    One last thought - I think 3 wins in a single category should mean a place in the Hall of Fame. 5 just seems like too big of a hurdle.

    I'll have a list of noms soon.

    Offcourse, it's all for fun and passing time. It's also nice for others to get their credit though, it has nothing to do with not wanting to take part in the Awards. The awards are some of the most fun-times of the year on this forum.

    I like the idea of the HoF. But, isn't 5 a tad much if you compare this to the amount of competition and the level of quality that exists on this forum? Just asking.

    I haven't made up my mind yet.

    in the world of online forums - 5 years does indeed sound a bit much. we have a special thing going on here in PD with members that return regularly and stay with the board..but one must factor in that this is what it is...an online community...and 5 years is a lifetime in such situations. I too would say 3 years is enough for HoF...

    Its a tough call. I want to make it difficult but not impossible. 4 wins in a single category or 5 wins total sound good?

    A lot of people here would be in the hall already if we lessened the number. I picked 5 for a specific reason. Nobody here qualifies yet, so we create a hall without having to grandfather anybody in. At the same time, over the next 3 years, we could induct a half-dozen.

    And no, I don't think 5 is too much, for the reasons I stated. A number of posters are already nearing that threshold, and this forum is only 7 years old. by the time PD hits its 10th anniversary, I expect us to have at least five HoFers, probably more.

    I also advise against putting members win the hall for total wins, because that would disqualify them from every single category. I don't think that would be right.

    Also, I suggest we enshrine ABAdays as our first member of the PD hall of fame. I think he exemplified the reasons we have these awards in the firdt place.

    I appreciate your input, Kstat. But I think 4 is plenty tough. I agree it should be in one award though, now that I think about it. No one would be grandfathered in, they would just be inducted this year.

    Well, by the 4-win standard, both Mourning and MagicRat would already have been inducted in the class of 2009.

    Kstat, every new hall of fame has a rookie class of people who earned it a long time ago. What's wrong with that? both mourning and MagicRat are at elvis and Beatles status around here and deserve HoF status right from the start of the new hall.

    You're also showing right here in this thread that you also deserve HoF status, too.

    4 or 5, I'm a long, long way away, either way. I don't think coming up with the idea for a hall of fame has ever gotten anybody inducted into the hall itself, nor should it.

    It also should be noted that most of the founding members of PD (Hicks, Shade, Able for example) are much, much farther away from HoF status than I am. I think they'd tell you the same thing.

    The more I think of it, I think we should have a "contributors" wing for people like the people I mentioned above, that should be involved in any PD hall of fame, but have lacked a category sufficient enough for us to recognize them. I think there should be some standard of seniority (say, 6 years?) and we should probably limit those inductions to 2-3 a year.

    Underrated Poster - I think this is covered by post more often. Once again, if I'm wrong or you really love this category, let me know.
    I like this one personally. I think its a good way to recognize someone who is a generally good all around contributer who doesn't necessarily stand out for one particular category. I think a good poster who doesn't post very often is a different sort of thing than someone who posts a lot but is "underrated".

    I will edit this post as I continue with my nominations through the week.


    Most Humorous Poster
    N8R, avoidingtheclowns, btowncolt (ya still got it, kid).

    MasterDebator
    Unclebuck, aka "coolunderpressure" can post on any thread and get the discussion on track. he can also keep his responses to the point and more importantly ON point, and avoids Red Herrings. Solid debates…man...ship or whatever that word would be. (I wish I were smarter and stuff.)

    Best Non-American Poster
    bellisimo, sweabs, N8R, more to come.

    Best Non-Pacer Fan
    cordobes, kstat

    Sunshiner of the Year
    btowncolt (I want to BE him), El Pacero

    Moderate Poster of the Year
    Putnam, Unclebuck, Count 55, T-Bird.

    Darksider of the Year
    Duke Dynamite - OK, he's not a full-fledged Lord of the Sith or anything, He's more like Luke Skywalker in Empire. The Dukester is taking a sunshine beating and he hasn't even gone into that room where all the stuff starts flying straight at his head. Maybe we shouldn't tell him about the inevitable retreat onto an extended catwalk to nowhere, 1000 feet above nothing. (You always end up losing something you might miss out on one of those, and THEN they spring the bad news on you. Might as well just jump off at that point.) Duke, you must resist the temptation of the easy path. And stay off the scaffolding.

    Post More Often
    imawhat, able (still love ya despite our little differences in the past, big guy ), BostonConnection, JayRedd

    Best Arm Chair Coach
    imawhat, unclebuck, tbird

    Rookie of the Year
    cordobes, HanSolo, Psycho T, Sookie, judicator, El Pacero - don't mean to leave anyone out, but I had to narrow it down. Decent rookie class all around.

    OTMVP - Pig Nash, Skaut_H, vapacerfan, btowncolt

    MVP - Hicks, Naptown_Seth, BillS, Unclebuck, Bball,
    Addition: Anthem

    I'm going to have to do some digging for nominations for thread of the year. There are a couple of VERY serious standouts for OT-TotY, but it was a very rough year for Pacers topics (and anything Pacers related for that matter). I have to do some digging and see what others dig up as well.

    I think it's highly, highly over-sensitive to request a name change for that award, but Kstat's suggestion works well.
