As part of the  Mile High Report Hall of Fame, we aim to honor those who made it so. But that doesn't mean only recognizing authors and staff members of MHR. Indeed, many community members have played just as big a role - if not bigger - in forging this digital version of Broncos Country.

Member nominations for the 2015 Class of the Mile High Report Hall of Fame are now open.

Members who should be considered are those who served as a beacon of the MHR Community and steward of Broncos Country, showing respect to others and demonstrating football acumen or extraordinary commentary that benefited the site as well as Broncos Country.

For the full rundown (including rules) of the Mile High Report Hall of Fame, please see our announcement post last weekToday we are accepting nominations for the Members category. Any currently active or formerly-more-active member of the community is eligible, with a few exceptions:

  • You cannot nominate yourself.
  • Current staff writers/editors are not eligible.
  • Anyone eligible for the Author category is not eligible.
  • Previous winners - ozark orange, j-man, sadaraine - are not allowed to be nominated again...but as with any past winner, congratulations are always in order!

How to nominate

Leave a comment naming the one person you would nominate for this award plus a brief explanation why he/she is deserving.

You can nominate a member in one of three ways:

  • Write, "I nominate [member's name]" in the subject line and then write your reasoning behind it in the body of your comment.
  • Write nomination in the subject line then work on the body of your nomination as a reply to your original comment.
  • Create a Fanpost, which is highly encouraged to get even more eyes behind your reasoning for a candidate and give him or her more visibility and support. Then write a comment to your nomination linking to your Fanpost.

Example nomination:

Comment subject: I nominate Whorfin.

Comment body (optional): He is our best chance of surviving a Zombie Apocalypse.

How to support a nomination

Support a MHR Hall of Fame nomination by recommending (rec'ing) the comment. You can also reply to a nomination to add more content to a candidate's nomination. These will be compiled and included for the next phase - voting!

To help a candidate become a finalist, it is best not to nominate him/her more than once since it could split the recs. Also, only nominate one person per comment so others can rec one at a time.

How nominees advance

The top 10 candidates with the most recs (minimum 4 recs) will advance to the next phase - fan voting - to begin Friday, July 10. Nominations close Monday, July 6 at 6 p.m.

As a reminder of the other Hall of Fame nominations, you can nominate Broncos players, coaches right here andformer MHR authors here.

Good luck to every Member candidate - you help keep this site running more than any other entity in our digital Broncos Country!
