Time to nominate the best of the best among former MHR authors

New, comments

Whose year will it be?

NFL: Denver Broncos-Minicamp Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Authors Hall of Fame is a Who's Who among Broncos bloggers, and our goal with this category is to honor those who have made this site the leading blog it is today.

Former authors of the site will be immortalized right alongside their favorite players, a tribute to their devotion to Broncos Country.

Our recent inductees are a perfect example of authors who have helped build and grow this site - Kaptain Kirk, BroncoMike, John Bena, Troy Hufford and Styg50.

But there are many more deserving of this honor, so let’s get to the details!

Who is eligible?

Authors are former MHR contributing writers, moderators and editors, also known as "staff members." To be considered, they must have been an active official staff member (listed on the Masthead of MileHighReport.com) for at least one year.

Current active Authors are not eligible. Authors must be removed from association with Mile High Report for at least one year to be considered and remain in good standing as a Member of MHR (not banned).

Kaptain Kirk, John Bena and BroncoMike are no longer eligible for nomination, but they are still taking congratulatory messages :)

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 an author in one of three ways:

  • Write, "I nominate [author'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 Bill Watterson.

Comment body (optional): If he were a Broncos fan, I can only imagine how perfect Calvin & Hobbes would have been.

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 nominee's package. These will be compiled and included in 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 but instead rec, rec and rec some more. Also, only nominate one person per comment so others can easily rec too if they like the nomination.

How nominees advance

The top candidates with the most recs (minimum 4 recs) will advance to the next phase of fan voting.

Good luck to every Author candidate - it’s because of ALL of you that Mile High Report is the site it is today.

*And if you haven’t yet nominated/rec’d suggestions for the other categories, do so asap since voting will begin next week!
