How would a Fluther Hall of Fame work?

Asked by segdeha (1707points) August 14th, 2007

If Ben and Andrew were to implement a Fluther Hall of Fame, how should it work? Should there be a nominate link, like the great question link? Should the community vote on it or should it be an automatic thing based on a number of "great question" kudos?

I think it would have to be a community vote. I've seen some users with high scores who I personally don't approve of.

It should be voted on because sometimes answers are just conversations between two people not answers or sometimes steps one question one step at a time. If it is automatic it should be based on the number of great answers....But I like the of fame idea.

Are we really here to get points or be at the top of the hall of fame? I think we are all here to try to help others out............and to get help with a few questions we have in our own lives. I certainly am not here to make points. I am here to make friends and hopefully pass along a little bit of my own personal wisdom...haha

I don't care how many points I have or anyone else has. Points is not what this is about!

@mzgator, I was not suggesting a Hall of Fame as a way of earning cred or notoriety. I thought it would be a nice way to highlight some of the best threads on the site. Of course we're all here to help each other out. It's certainly not about points for me.

it should be based on the number of people actually liking a user through votes
personally i think we shouldnt have a hall of fame - because then more people would be cheating and answering questions just to be on the hall of fame -instead of answering to help people
i say abolish the score and let everyone be treated equal

Ah, OK, I get where the controversy is coming from... What I meant was a Hall of Fame for questions not people! Sorry, everyone!

as for the hall of fame for questions, i think it should be based on a combination of how many replies a question gets and a community vote

Do we need another popularity contest in life? Even for questions?
