Exactly. If there is no one worthy one year then don't force someone in that isn't ready yet (not poking at Nige just saying in general) I personaly am behind it being once every two years. And i'm not sure if it is already like this but for current HoF members/past inductees to chose who goes in with them.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Never under stood why Nige is so under rated around here by so many.

For as long as I've been here and for as many BTB's as I've read, I'd put Nige's work right up there with some of the best bookers in BTB. To me he's been one of the most consistent, quality bookers here.

I for one wouldn't think his name would be out of place at all in the HOF, another name for the HOF worth considering is PARANOir, he did have maybe the best created fed BTB ever and that in my opinion makes him worth mentioning.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

This won't come as a shock to many, but I would like to see Nige inducted into the HOF, if it does go ahead this year. I think he has been one of the most consistent bookers over the last 2-3 years and has always delivered a high quality product. The HOF should take place once a year. Even if we only have 1 inductee a year, it still should be an annual event on the site.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I'm sorry not trying to cause conflict but my opinion on the Nige matter is, I think the guys has had a solid thread going for three years. I don't know why some guys sell him short (or at least it seems like).

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Why is it that Nige isn't being considered for HoF? I mean, I see the pros and cons, but is there specific reason (perhaps maybe something that happened in the past) that is causing Nige from not being inducted. Personally, the HoF should be something symbolic and of importance and the only people that should be deciding who is inducted should be the people in the HoF themselves. With that said, if there's somebody worthy of being inducted, then no...there shouldn't be a HoF yearly.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Nige is a great booker, always active, and did a lot of work like the Resources section when he was mod. Why not put him in the HoF?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

As much as I like Nige and think he's a good bloke, I just don't think he's at the level yet. He may have been posting consistently, yeah, but you can't honestly tell me he's at the level of HoFers who have been inducted for booking in the current time. BTB has progressively gotten better, and for the time that Nige has booked in, he hasn't really been on the top level, which, imo, means he shouldn't be going in. At least not this year. In a year or so, it may be different, because he may continue to imoprove and become one of the top dogs. But right now he's behind the likes of Legend and Wolfy who are still the top dogs around here when it comes to a WWE thread, and if you're inducting someone who hasn't been the best at the time that they've been booking, then you're lowering the standard of the HoF. You can't go in for posting consistently over an extended period of time. Quality > quantity every day of the week.

Para, on the other hand, has the greatest created fed I think there's been on this site. No disrespect to Reney (if he even visits this thread anymore anyway ) or BoogeyMan, but Para has set the standard for created feds. That means he deserves to go in imo.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Oh EPW is without a doubt the bomb, WIWA is 3rd, Alco's GWE was better too. It's a shame the merger with No-DQ destroyed my WIWA thread so, the wipe of 6 months worth of my best work was very annoying.

On the subject of the HoF I personally don't think anyone this year. Para, NatureBoy would be my picks but I don't know how the other HoF'ers would feel on that.

Nige splits alot of opnion on here. He did his bit for the section as mod but as a booker I just personally don't rate him, and me and him have had words about this in the past. I'm not alone in that respect too. I think you have to be at a certain level and I don't think he's hit it yet, he's been consistently steady but never gone above that.
