Happy New Year!

As promised, with the dropping of the ball, the 2022 Hall of Fame (HoF) nomination window is now open!

As part of my agreement with the CC powers that be to provide more support for HoF, I've drafted, and they've approved a formal process document that more clearly defines how everything works. It's a bit long, but if you want to read it in full, it's below the tag:

Hall of Fame Format Nomination and Voting Process

Introduction: The Hall of Fame Format is a community-driven Star Trek CCG Second Edition tournament format. Each year, the community nominates and votes on eligible cards to be "Retired" into the Hall of Fame. Players may not use retired cards in Hall of Fame Format tournaments.

Hall of Fame (HoF) Community Coordinator: The HoF Community Coordinator is responsible for running the nomination and voting processes, to include managing any updates to the same, announcing newly retired cards after the voting concludes, and working with the CC staff to ensure the Hall of Fame Format Documents are properly updated. As HoF is a community-driven format, the HoF Community Coordinator is a community volunteer and not a member of any CC department.

Nomination Process: During the nomination window, each community member may submit up to three (3) valid nominations of eligible cards for the Hall of Fame. Nominations must be posted publicly in the appropriate thread on the TrekCC forum, or PMd to the Community Coordinator, for posting on the member's behalf. The Community Coordinator may also accept nominations through other channels (e.g., Discord) but must post the nominations in the nomination thread with attribution for the nominations to be considered official.

Nomination Window: The Nomination Window shall run from January 1st-January 31st. The Community Coordinator is responsible for opening and closing the nomination thread and compiling the list of valid nominations for voting.

Valid Nomination: In order to be considered valid, a nominated card must be eligible for retirement, not already retired, and not already nominated in the current year by another community member. An eligible card is a card that was released on or before December 31st of the year a decade prior to being nominated (e.g., for the 2022 voting period, all cards released on or before December 31st, 2012 are eligible for nomination).

Voting Process: The Community Coordinator will provide a complete ballot of all valid nominations to the community at the start of the voting window. Each community member is eligible to vote, and in order for their ballot to be counted, must vote Yes or No on each nomination. The question to be voted on is "should this card be in the Hall of Fame?" As such, a Yes vote means the community member wants to retire the card, while a No vote means they do not want to retire the card. Community Members must submit their completed ballot to the Community Coordinator (generally, but not necessarily, via PM). At the end of the voting window, the Community Coordinator will tabulate the results and announce the new class of retired cards. In order to be retired, a card must receive at least a 65% Yes vote from all ballots received.

Voting Window: The Voting Window will open on February 1st and close on the last day of February. The Community Coordinator is responsible for opening and closing the voting thread and compiling and posting the voting results.

Post-Voting Actions: Once the results of the voting have been posted in the forum, the CC staff is responsible for updating the official Hall of Fame retired list and making the appropriate updates to the database. This should be done as soon as possible so as to facilitate upcoming Hall of Fame events.

New Class "Induction": The updated Hall of Fame list, to include the cards retired in the current year's ballot, will take effect as soon as the official list is updated, or March 15th, whichever comes first. If the official list is not updated by March 15th, the forum post announcing the results will serve as a supplement to the official list until such time as the list is updated.


However, if you just want to get right to it, here's the short version:

[SD] You can nominate up to 3 eligible cards

[SD] Eligible cards consist of any cards released on or before December 31, 2012 that aren't already in the Hall of Fame (you can find the list of retired cards here). Newly-eligible sets this year are Lineage and Tapestry, plus all previous sets. Additionally, Hajur is newly-eligible this year (as are all previously-released promos).

[SD] To make your nominations, please post them here in this thread or PM me and I'll post them here on your behalf. I will also maintain a master list of all nominations at the bottom of this post.

[SD] Once a card has been nominated there's no need for someone else to nominate it.

[SD] The Nomination Window closes January 31. Voting begins on February 1. I'll have more details when I put the voting thread up next month.

So there it is! Start thinking about what cards' times have come and get those nominations in so we can start the new year on a fun note!

Here's to a great Trek-filled 2022! :cheersL:

I have chosen not to vote. However, there is no harm in having more cards on the ballot, as each card is evaluated individually by voters. Since there are no limits on how many Yes or No votes a ballot may contain, the presence of more cards on the ballot does not impact the likelihood of any other card being inducted.
