I was actually travelling to collect my Chelsea vs. Barcelona ticket when I thought of this.....

Just wondering, seeing as we're coming up to 'WrestleMania time', and with the whole 'Hall of Fame' thing that comes up nowadays with WWE, how about we have one for our Be The Booker?

There are definately bookers here that deserve more recognition for their work than 'monthly awards.' This could also be an annual thing and might make some people want to stick it out for a year and try and get into the next Hall of Fame.

I was thinking maybe 3-5 people could be inducted.....*I sound so mature*

Any ideas, thoughts?

I think you just wanted to brag about getting your Chelsea - Barcelona tickets....j/k.

Sounds like a good idea. It'll be nice to see if it happens, and how the 'inductees' are given their place too, via voting or a panel, or whatever, who knows. I'll keep an eye on how this develops.

Nice idea Showstopper.

Love the idea Michael....... Should be interesting to see how it turns out like Wolfy said. Who would run it? Michael? or someone else?

I got a few of suggestions:
Roger
Bid_Red_Evil_Devil88
pcwcubs_1


^ They are the ones that started it all, Roger ran the very first BTB show that lasted for a bit. They were the 'bookers' three years ago when I came here.

Don;t feel left out the 'modern' age bookers, you know who you are, I'm just throwing out some of the 'originals'.


Anyway, should be good.

I agree with Grendrill. Big_Evil_Red_Devil88, Roger and pcwcubs1 were great whilst they were here. I'd probably add F-5 in there as well, as he was the one who really introduced the decent and constructive grading system (ie not: Great - Grade A).

Of course I would run the event, at the moment I'm not really interested in who you would want to be inducted, I just want to know if you lot would be happy with the idea of a 'Hall of Fame'. If I have enough people willing to participate then I'll decide on the different aspects of the voting system.

The judges would have to be chosen carefully remember because there are some good people here that weren't here two years ago with me, Grendrill, F5 etc.

I haven't been here for very long at all, still I like the idea of having a Hall of Fame. Since I am one of the new people around here I won't be much of a help with the nominees but one suggestion would surely be Grendrill.

We should have votes running all month long from everybody. Then we have a panel of five judges. They can take the votes into consideration along with reasonings and have their own reasons on why others should be in there.

This is how I plan to run it,

People can choose between 3-5 people to be inducted along with reasons as to why they should be inducted. They will then PM me their 'inductees' and the top 5 will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on WrestleMania weekend.....

No judges = No incompetance

Not really, it really depends on how significant of a contribution they have made to Be The Booker in general and if they deserve a place in the Hall of Fame.

Just so that people are aware, anybody can get a place in the Hall of Fame as long as the reasons I receive are justified. Stuff like 'He/she 'pioneered the Grading system as we now know it' or 'produced one of the greatest PPV's we've seen'. You know stuff like that.

But hopefully some of the 'newish' Bookers don't get disheartend because these awards are designed for the legends either who are amongst us, or have graced the BTB, maybe next year some of you may be receving one, and hopefully this time next year I'll be creating the 'Hall of Fame thread for Class 2006'

Can you just clarify one or two things for me (Just so I dont make a complete balls up of my vote(s) for this.)

- Do you have to nominate at least 3 people, or can you nominate a few as you wish?
- When is the cut off date to make nominations?

Thanks, and BTW, this is the best way to organise it IMO, saves any bullshitting, and asslicking.

Sure,

1) I've been thinking and I've decided you can nominate up to 5 people.

2) So far I'm not sure as to when to start voting as we've still got this whole issue to clarify as I'm sure that there are more people like you that need questions answered and I'll be here to help. However I'm hoping that the cut off date will be sometime before WrestleMania Sunday, so plenty of time.

This is how it's gonna go down,

There are three weeks until WrestleMania 21. I have decided that as of this moment I will start to accept nominations for the Be The Booker Hall of Fame 2005.

As mentioned before you are able to nominate up to 5 people to be inducted, and I'll probably induct 5 at the end of this.

Also, votes are to be cast via PM, and are to include valid reasons as to why they should be nominate. I will probably PM you back if I don't feel that your reasons are valid enough.

Voting should commence for 1-2 weeks and the Induction Ceremony will take place in three weeks time.

Once again, please don't put any votes in here, all to go either via PM, or if not possible contact me through MSN. (I'm on most days)

Happy Voting!
