During 2015, BCC turned
10 11 years old. BCC is not a band–trust me when I say that it is NOT for lack of trying–but if it was, it would be time for a Greatest Hits album. Is much of what is found in the archives of this blog garbage? Probably. Are there some things that are worth remembering? Certainly. But this post is not about any of that stuff. No, this post is about the elite. The very best. The Posts Whose Calling and Election Has Been Made Internet Sure. The Only Comments With Which The Steve Is Well Pleased. My Internet Brothers and Sisters, we henceforth establish the By Common Consent Hall of Fame.
Here are the rules:
- What is eligible? Posts and Comments, basically. People are eligible only to the extent that they are synonymous with comments.
- Nominations for BCC HoF induction must be sustained by two additional commenters, or by a single perma/emeritus blogger at BCC.
- Nominations must be given with at least a bit of supporting evidence. This isn’t the place to just say, “I liked that one post that one time!” We will work on collecting additional evidence for some submissions, but help us out with the homework here. Paste appropriate links in the comments, send tweets to @ByCommonConsent, or email us.
- After a collection of initial nominees, we will post a vote. Nominees receiving 75% support will be inducted. Failure to receive the required amount will result in being cast into outer darkness.
Although the BCC HoF would almost certainly be perfect if Steve and I just authoritatively declared its inductees, we believe in democracy, and promise to only overrule results if we absolutely feel like it. For example, if Jason Wharton is not a first-ballot inductee, then the entire vote will be tossed.
Nominations are open, and will remain so until further notice.
