Hurricane Hall of Fame

Hurricane Maker has expressed interest in me resurrecting my Hurricane Hall of Fame. I started it several years ago as just a fun little project, but then I brought it onto Wikipedia and it kind of took off. However it has been dormant since I left Wikipedia in 2010. There has not been an official class since 2008. I always wanted to expand my voter pool and our little tight knit group here on the forums seems like the perfect choice. I was thinking of adding the HOF ballot to our yearly betting pools page. See the link for some background and the rules and guidelines I laid out (years ago...I recently upped the cost limits for automatic nomination and induction). The way it normally worked was that I would make a list of ten nominees from which five would be selected, but I'm definately open to suggestions. I've also developed a seperate Historical Electorate (akin to Cooperstown's Historical Committee) for storms prior to 1875. In the HE, three inductees are selected from a list of ten nominees. What do you guys think? -- SkyFury 23:50, August 29, 2011 (UTC)

I'm interested. At the end of this year, we may add a HOF ballot to the end of this year's betting pools in all basins. I don't know how the selection round will go then, voting process? CobraStrike (t)(b)(c) 01:27, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
I think it would be a good idea, considering the fact that many people may express interest. Hurricane Andrew (444) 14:57, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
Great idea, CS.10L.NONAME 20:50, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
My question is, if we're going to do this as an end-of-the-year thing, then does that have an impact on the "two seasons old" criterion for inclusion? Also, perhaps voters could submit their own nominations? --HurricaneMaker99 21:00, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
But then again this is the Hurricane Wikia. If we decide to keep the "two year seasons old" criterion, then voting pools can still happen every year, just that hurricanes will only be inducted once 2 seasons old. CobraStrike (t)(b)(c) 22:02, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
Don't worry. There's lots of hurricanes before 2009.10L.NONAME 22:55, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
The ones I personally want inducted are from '07 and '08; I asked in case anyone would have wanted to nominate any post-'09 storms. --HurricaneMaker99 22:58, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
Should this be moved to a forum of it's own? YE Tropical Cyclone 23:07, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
What, the section or a new forum for the HOF? CobraStrike (t)(b)(c) 23:08, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
I think this should be it's own forum, like the favorite storms of 2011 forum I made earlier this year. The Worldwide activity discussion forum on the TC BasinNAV is for discussing worldwide activity of 2011. I also made one for 2012 as well, but it's made ahead of time. IMO Tip is no. 1 in the hall of Fame. Ryan1000 23:22, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
I think a separate forum page for this is a better option than the section. We had a huge debate over the same thing related to the WAD being in the EPac forum. The HHoH isn't Atlantic only so it shouldn't be in the Atlantic forum. Yqt1001 00:41, August 31, 2011 (UTC)
Based on the current consensus...I'll go ahead and make a forum for the HoH and move this. CobraStrike (t)(b)(c) 00:45, August 31, 2011 (UTC)
Like I said back when this was in the ATL forum, I think SkyFury should be writing this. Also why is it called 2011 HHoH? Not like the discussion relates to a year or anything. Maybe it could be changed to HHoH and then have another topic called "2011 HHoH Voting" when the time for voting comes? CS changed it. Yqt1001 01:07, August 31, 2011 (UTC)
Done. CobraStrike (t)(b)(c) 01:13, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Wow, I clearly underestimated the level of interest. I come back 24 hours after I first brought it up and it's already got its own page. As the creater and founder of the Hurricane Hall of Fame as well as the keeper of the record, I feel like I should have final say as to how this is run. This is definately a democracy and I in fact want your input, but remember, this is my baby here. First, let me clear a few things up. Atlantic and East & West Pacific are the only basins included at this time. We can talk about expansion at some other time. Also, because of the shear volume of eligible, deserving storms, each basin gets its own ballot. The Wikipedia pages only list the Atlantic members. I have an Excel file on my computer with the entire list. Yes, Ryan, Tip was inducted with the inaugural WPac class of 2007. Also keep in mind that I started this as just a fun little thing. The first two Atlantic classes (2004 and 2005) and the only four Pacific classes (2007 and 2008 for East and West) were hand selected by me. It wasn't until 2006 that I brought the Atlantic ballot to Wikipedia and started running it like a real HOF. I can have my official list posted to this forum, if you guys would like, by this weekend. You will then be free to scrutinize my early selections. I think you will find them agreeable, but I'm willing to listen to grievances. -- SkyFury 08:50, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Rules and Organization

The Nomination and Election Process

As I mentioned, there will be a list of ten nominees from which five will be chosen. Historically, I chose the ten nominees that were voted on. Obviously in this expanded format, we'll want it to be more democratic than that. However, I don't want a free-for-all with people just randomly throwing out names. I'd like it to be more controlled than that. One idea I dabbled in a while back was the "Pool of Twenty". I could propose a list of twenty storms that we could discuss. Names could be added or subtracted per consensus. For example, if there's a storm that's not in the Pool of Twenty that you guys feel merits more consideration than one that is in the Pool, they can be swapped. Me whittling it to twenty would greatly expedite the selection process while still allowing you guys plenty of say.

It's important to keep an open mind. Remember what I said about recentism. The HHOF goes all the way back to 1800 (the Great Hurricane of 1780 received a special exemption). That's a lot of history. Each of the nominees has to measure up fairly with any storm over the past 200 years. I would strongly encourage you guys to do some research on our candidates. The selections should be in keeping with the principles I laid out on the Wikipedia page. Also, we shouldn't drag out this voting process. I'd like the nominees to be decided on within a week's time. We could push it longer, but let's shoot for one week.

Once the ten nominees have been decided, I'll let you guys stew on them for a few days (maybe a week) during which you will each decide on your list of five. That will be your ballot. Then, on a pre-selected date (don't worry, that's not strict...we can accomodate stragglers), we all submit our ballots. Once the ballots are in, the inductees can be determined two different ways. We could set it up so that the five that appear on the most ballots are in. This would set up an engaging debate when the inevitable tie occurs to decide the final one or two spots. Or we could say the storms that appear on a majority (>50%) of ballots are in. This also allows room for healthy debate should fewer than five meet this requirement. Either one would be fine, but I don't want it set up like the Baseball Hall of Fame and others where a certain percentage is required to get in. Five is a good number. Unfortunately, there have been no shortage of devastating, as well as curious and record-breaking, storms worthy of enshrinement. - SF

Voting Schedule

Now, I generally like to do the ballot in May or June, when excitement about the coming hurricane season is high. By November, I think we're all pretty much hurricane-ed out. Also May/June is right around the time we're doing our betting pools. However doing it at the end would allow us to start this year, although we may do something special for the Resurrection Year. It also fits nicely with the "two seasons" rule. I'm flexible on when we do the vote, but it can be no earlier than December and no later than June. Like I said, I'd prefer to do it in May, however if we chose May, then we may want to do a special resurrection vote this fall. - SF

The "Two Seasons" Rule

Let me explain the two seasons rule: As a staunch opponent of recentism, I don't want nominees to be too fresh on the minds of voters (you guys). Under the two seasons rule, two full seasons must pass before a storm is eligible. 2008's Hurricane Hanna, for example, did not become eligible until the conclusion of the 2010 season. This is regardless of whether we decide to do the vote in December or in the spring. This is one of the rules I'm not too flexible on. - SF

Historical Electorate

Because the Atlantic pool is so vast, given the depth of the historical record, and there are so many old storms worthy of enshrinement, in 2007 (the same time I established the East and West Pacific Halls) I created the Historical Electorate. Under this format, the main ballot would be restricted to storms from 1875-present and storms prior to 1875 would be voted on in the HE. Based on Cooperstown's Historical Committee, the HE would consist of a separate list of ten nominees from which you guys would select three inductees. For the sake of time and to reduce the research load on you guys, I will probably select the ten nominees. - SF

Boy, that's a lot isn't it! Yeah, I've had six years to think about this. I'm sure there are other details to hammer out but this is a good breakdown of the major talking points. Please post your comments under the section to which it is relevant. For general discussion of the HHOF itself, post in the main section above "Rules and Organization". Thanks! -- SkyFury 08:50, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

The Hall of Famers

Atlantic

2004

2005

2006

2007

2008

2009

Notes: Before 2007, the Hall of Fame was much less organized. The number of storms elected each year varied. When I compiled the Excel file, I broke it into ten storms elected per year for 2004-2006. I actually started the five storm per year format in 2006, but retroactively pushed it to ten to deal with overflow from the first two years. I also added the Historical Electorate in 2007. The only pre-1875 storm elected before 2007 was the Last Island Hurricane (1856). The automatic inductions were in no particular order and inducted as I found them. The last pre-2004 automatics were inducted in 2008. Note that before 2007, the Two Seasons Rule was not in effect; the required gap was instead just one season. However, Hurricane Isabel was the only storm to be elected after just one season. In 2010, the cost criteria for automatic induction was raised from $5 billion to $10 billion. This has no effect on the storms already in but rather was intended to make it more difficult for contemporary storms to gain induction automatically. Hurricane Gustav was the last storm to gain automatic induction with less than $10 billion worth of damage ($6.6 billion).

2010-11

There were no elections in the Atlantic Hall of Fame during 2010 or 2011.

2012

2008

Note: The criteria for automatic induction in the East Pacific are 1,000 deaths and/or $2 billion in damage (pre-2004 storms adjusted to 2004 inflation). According to my HOF records, Pauline was inducted automatically, however does not appear to meet the criteria. The reason for this is unclear. It is possibly the result of an erroneous damage figure.

2009-17

There were no elections in the East Pacific Hall of Fame during this time period.

2019

2020

It is now officially 2022 by UTC, so Hall of Fame voting will resume again. Like previous years in the Atlantic, we'll vote for 20 of the storms above, and the 20 that get the most votes will be nominated, and we'll induct 10 of those 20 into the hall of fame. Imelda and Lorenzo of 2019 are now eligible, as is Ida (obviously); also we forgot to include Carrie of 1957 among older notable storms. Ryan1000 01:15, 1 January 2022 (UTC)

Like the Atlantic, we're doing 20-10-5 for the WPac due to the large list, so vote for 20 storms, nominate 10, then we'll each pick our top 5 among those 10. In-Fa and Rai will be included for future years, but don't meet the auto-nomination criteria to bypass the "two-seasons" rule, so they aren't eligible right now.
