I wouldn't say that, but I wish some who've never really listened to Yes would take a leaf out of Urban's book.

Ok Urban maybe I'm taking it too seriously.

But lets wait and see how you react when The Fall get snubbed for Paul McCartney & Wings.

But seriously. The way newcomers drop by and vote, the turnouts for these are pretty unpredictable. It's a good thing we're not just letting anyone nominate an artist, because Say Anything would probably make it into the hall of fame with ease.

So how many votes is enough again? And are we sure it's enough? The reason all the other artists have got in so quickly is because we considered 20 something the official number and EVERYBODY with as much as 12 posts ends up voting, and so an induction is made before a lot of the regulars even voted, and I consider their opinions more valuable.

Here we go. Booboo fella I admire your grim determination but it's a no from me. I would actually be secretly pleased if one of my noms never made it. That would mean that I was different and don't follow a crowd. Don't take it personally.

I said no to Led Zep and Elliott Smith too.

thats why i agree with JJJ i think that for the inductions everyone can vote vote but for further nomination only people with a certain amount posts can vote...he said something like 500 posts but i think a minimum somewhere between 100-250 would be fine

Booboo I agree with your concern on the principal but I'm not so sure if it'll do anything for your cause.


Yes votes with under 100 posts
candyquasar
clamz
eggyhendrix
Uberfilmbuff(has 99)

10 total minus these 4 equals 6

No votes with under 100 posts
Brad Stengel
insinkerator
The Monkey(has 89)

15 total minus these three equals 12


So the "real" tally is 6 to 12 giving Yes 33% and No 66%.

Each nominee is up for week as dictated when the Hall of Fame started. It's been pretty consistent, 28 or 29 total votes every time. This just may not be the time for them, let more people on here get to know them via your posts, reviews and nominate them again in a few months or whatever. Assuming they don't by now. I am leaning towards an affirmative vote but still reserving judgment for now.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Exactly why I'm abstaining from this one...and the fact that I haven't listened to their entire discography yet.

But please, boo, STOP. I hate to see you act like this.
