New to Mile High Report? Sign up to join the discussion and nomination process!
Mile High Report has been an online beacon of Broncos Country for eight years. As part of the shiny new 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 played just as large a role in forging this digital version of Broncos Country.
With that in mind, Member nominations for the 2014 Class of the Mile High Report Hall of Fame are now open.
For the full rundown (including rules) of the Mile High Report Hall of Fame, please see our announcement post last week. Today 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 members are not eligible
- Anyone eligible for the Author category is not eligible.
Broncos and authors of Mile High Report would not be considered here; there are separate categories for these. You can nominate Broncos players, coaches etc. right here and authors here.
How to nominate
In short, leave a comment!
You can nominate a member of Broncos Country by leaving a comment below. In the subject line, write, "I nominate [Author name]." In the body of your comment, leave your reasoning behind the nomination. You can also quickly leave your nomination in the subject line then work on the body of your nomination as a reply to your original comment.
You can also write your nomination material as 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. An example Fanpost nominating Randy Gradishar can be found right here; the last step would be to write your comment in this thread then link to that FanPost in the nomination body. I will fulfill that request in the comments below.
Comment subject: I nominate JohnDoeBronco
Comment body (optional): JohnDoeBronco is Broncos Country. I rest my case; nothing more needs to be said.
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.
How nominees advance
The top ten candidates with the most recs (minimum 4 recs) will advance to the next phase of the selection process, fan voting, to begin Wednesday July 16th. Nominations close Saturday, July 12th at noon.
Good luck to every Member candidate, and thank you for helping us tell the tale of Broncos history from the fans' point of view!
