while if there was a hall of fame killerk would probably be in it due to clear instructions and popularity

it isnt that hard to make it clear-it isnt exactly complex is it, and the instructable has nothing to do with it

a hall of fame would most likely include popular/great instructables (which means that the quality of instructable could possibly count)

Pay attention, please, any HoF would be for people, not their Instructables. If they were a constant, helpful presence on the forums, a member could potentially end up in the HoF without actually producing a single Instructable.

True.

The potential I was talking about was small.

Can we please leave k'nex out of the discussion?

The question is "Should we have a HoF?", not "Who should be in a HoF?"

Please add further contributions to the thread linked in the OP.

u cant have a hall of fame with no one in it, and yes we should and it should have at least one member from each of the instructables communitys (fire, bikes, bombs, electrics, computers, yes even knex, etc.) and it would probably be decided by vote, rating, and # of comments. (im just making suggestion, knex doesnt have to be in it through it would be nice if it was, since it is part of instructables) also i would have counted my previous comment as a yes we should have a HoF, though u also need canidates (so if i offend u in any way though i have no idea how)

This is why I asked people to keep responses to the other thread, where you would see the discussion about how to choose people to go in the HoF, should we have one.

I'm not offended by the suggestion of killerk in any way at all, your point about his possible presence in the HoF was valid. It's just there's no point in choosing candidates for a HoF if there is no HoF. One step at a time, yes?

A HoF hasn't even been decided on, even thinking about who would be in it is getting ahead of ourselves. Besides, we can't do it based on community's, because:

  • There are way too many communities, and it boils down to opinion on what is, or isnt (cooking, kites, ipod, speakers, altoid tins, art, etc)
  • So many people are based in multiple communities
  • We're all one, big, happy family =D

i dont think there could be a hall of fame because, everyone has different opinions, and so it would be really hard to decide who would go in there.

I favour that those who deserve recognition already have it. A hall of fame would only formallise existing 'fame'. L

That's a good point..I think that if someone was put in there, they may develop an air of importance/being better than everyone else. That would apply especially in the knex community.
