Default Can we have a "Hall of Fame" section?

I'd love to have a listing of memorable, creative, funny, or really important threads that have gone on since the beginning of the forum.

PLEWFLADC or whatever the hell it was comes to mind. As well as the kooky posts from Jay Norem.
Unfortunately there are more that I'd rather forget than remember from a certain Mapex Saturn owner.

You can always just do this to find the most important threads :)

You're joking, but there was actually some good reading in there.

Not enough about Travis Barker :P

But good nonetheless.

Issue with a hall of fame - who gets to decide which threads are included, & based on what criteria? If the nuts & bolts could be worked out, I do think this idea has some legs as a sticky with links :)

What we need is someone to read through the entire archive and pick out the classic threads and consolidate them into one thread. A sticky is not really necessary, someone reading through everything is however. deltdrum, since this was your idea, I nominate you lol.

I don't get that feeling. More of a convenience, like the Readers Digest condensed version of Drummerworld.

As far as criteria, that's highly subjective. But you will have your run away classics that everybody agrees on.

One thing we can do, is try and remember the classic threads.

Groove vs Chops, the holy grail of classic threads
The cape thread
Anything with Sticks4
PEWFLACC
The whole badge fiasco
The tom angles thread always gets my vote
Some stuff of yore featuring Matt Smith is priceless
When Pollyanna (Anon) had enough and left for a bit in 2010 I think it was
The thread where Pollyanna says she recorded the daily temperatures in Sydney for like 15 years straight. What a nut!

Hahah I'd actually gladly do it, but just started a new school semester and picked up hours at work.

I'm more of the "ideas guy" :P

Why not just have every response ever posted by Pollyanna as a sticky - pretty much covers everything. I miss her :(

Totally forgivable. Also, bacteriumfendyoke (Duncan) used to be mediocrefunkybeat. He got banned and later snuck back in under a truly thinly veiled re-arranged screen name. He got banned a few times, but it's more like a time out for him lol. I forget who did it first, rearranging the letters, I want to say Duncan. Pollyanna changed to Anon La Ply right at her 9,999th post. Just to tweak our collective nipple. We had this big thing planned to celebrate her 10,000th post. Then she went ahead and started all over with a new name that little stinker. She has quite the unique insight. I was lucky enough to hang with her...and Duncan, Andy, Henri, David Floegal, Madge, and Ben Turk in London.

I remember mediocrefunkybeat; yes, I have to agree with your description - "thinly veiled rearranging. :) I don't recall any "ban-worthy" posts from him, but as I said before, I took a long hiatus from the forum.

That sounds like a great hang out in London, you and the others.

Dunc goes way back to 2005 I think. He had a reputation before I found this place in 2008. I really enjoyed his company during my short stay, he was very helpful in explaining things to me. He was the last one I saw, everybody else had left. That trip was surreal for me, like a dream almost. I had fish and chips in a real English pub with all these great people. The Tower of London was badass. I can't believe how tough those people were then. I'm not worthy!

Then I come back home to find that one of the drummer celebs at the LDS... who had thousands of people waiting in line to see him....Gerald Heyward...yea, he works at my local GC and I literally can go and hang with him whenever he's there. But I don't. I could though. :) I've seen him sell drum sets to people who have no idea who he is. He's very humble and shrugs off any celeb stuff. Knowledgeable too, and really worked hard for me trying to find something.

Good idea Andy :)

Lets face it, who else had no less than 4 threads talking about a specific forum member here?

Yes, that's right, that's the Mighty Pollyanna :)

Larry, meeting everybody - yourself definitely included - was a real highlight of 2013 for me. As exhausted as I was by the end of it, it was definitely worth it from my part and as somebody that had a lot more investment in it (you did come from the US for crying out loud) I'm glad that you enjoyed it!

I've been here since 2004 and been involved in just about every forum war. For the record, Pollyanna was the first to re-arrange and I followed shortly after like the sheep I am...

How about the threads where I posted my music. How can you forget that?
Certainly Hall of Fame worthy. Not.

I thought the two-minute Challenge was a Hall of Famer.

There was an editor contributor on Wikipedia, the first to greet me and we soon became friends, who passed and they preserved his talk page and dedicated an article to him. Not a bad idea to perhaps have memorials to forum contributors who have passed-sounds a bit morbid I know or just Hall of Fame threads from those who have passed. Perhaps too morose?
