Since nominations were starting to take up the New Boards discussion, I thought it would be a good idea to move them here.

This thread will be for both making nominations and discussing which nominations should move forward – at least until we can come up with a more formalized system (if we ever do).

Context:

RandomMan suggested a new forum consisting of the following:

Hall of fame (needs a clever name): a place to highlight great threads that have run their course. all locked, like a museum for lols.

Suggestions put forward so far include:

-This Goat (Platus)
-Samuel L Jackson (Harshwhinny)
-Come Bakc Gamzee!!! (BSoD)

And a whole bunch by Captain Blubber:

-Community Building Experiment Test Chamber 1
-Know Your Meme has the best T-Shirts! Get some!
-This yes. Mod fanart?
-Wheel of Fortune!
-IM A SHAAAARRRK!
-I'm just going to leave this here….

Keep in mind that I haven't been vetting or passing judgement on any of the nominations or anything. I just wanted to make sure that everything in the old thread was moved to this one so the discussion didn't lose anything.

Discuss away!

"RandomMan suggested a new forum consisting of the following:"

I'd nominate the CBC threads. It was/is a really good idea that should be held in high regard.


I'd say the first Pony General thread. Maybe not all (although I wouldn't be opposed to all of them being "archived",) but if I remember correctly, it was the "KYM X General" thread that started the rest of the KYM General threads. Also, it's the only thread that hit 200 pages and was pressured into being locked (and perhaps rightfully so,) because 200 pages in a thread section takes up a lot of space on a screen.

Finally, it serves as a bit of a documentary of the goings-on regarding the show in "real-time" as opposed to hindsight like the main article does.

Bob's 2013 April Fools thread scavenger hunt. That was fun. And his personal coaching thread.

Alright, with the creation of the new boards, I think we should move this thread into the Hall of Fame.

Or should we make a new thread there?

What do you guys think?

I just moved it. Thanks for the idea Bob.

I agree that at least the first pony thread should be moved, if not the first few.

Well, we can either move the first one, or all of the locked ones. If we are only going to do some, we would need a criteria for deciding the cut-off.

I vote for the latter. It's not like we don't have any space, and those threads are a pretty comprehensive record of the brony fandom's impact on the site.

Though I am also super duper biased on this question, so perhaps we should open the floor.

For the sake of brevity, I say only the first three.

I may also be biased but I'd like to see the poni archives there too.

Like Fridge said, just the first three. The first three were at the peak of the fandoms golden era


@Dr Coolface

Yes! We need the elections on there. One of the best TK moments

I've immortalized as many of the images from "The internet can now find stars" thread into this video. Maybe someone can unlock that thread, add this video and then relock it? I'd like to see it end on a good note.

Oh this thread please. CB was owned pretty good on that thread.

The issue with moving that thread Alex, is that while Riff-Raff does not require users to be decent to each other, the rest of the site does. Moving a thread to Memeory Lane simply to shame a singular user very much conflicts with that, and even if such a rule was ignored, with the vast quantity of threads where a single user acts stupid, that thread being moved alone would be quite odd.

What about that one thread that wanted to be locked but it took almost a year to lock?

The backstory:

True Story

Main page now shows where each thread originated from.

If all mods can also do that in the future when adding threads, it would be appreciated. Makes it easier to differientate.

Uh, I feel like memory lane is for fun threads only, and that's not fun at all….

Restricting memeory lane to only "fun" threads would be extremely…boring. There are some serious discussions that deserve a place in memeory lane.

To be honest, I agree with adding the HOH thread to memeory lane.

I think it may be questionable. While it's certainly "something worth remembering", you might want to consider what it might mean for the community to have a thread like that saved for posterity. It could easily be taken the wrong way.
