Discussed on: Romartus' talk page

Romartus has been adding many noobs with only one feature to the Hall of Shame list recently as encouragement for them to write more. While this seems like a good policy our current rules state that you need 3 features to be able to add your name to the Hall of Shame. So the question is: Should we scrap the rule?

This should apply. Voting on this is not really necessary. --ChiefjusticeXBox360 09:12, April 18, 2014 (UTC)

I see what you mean but might as well remove the writing if it doesn't apply. No point in clogging the website up with rules that don't apply. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:17, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
"If this is a policy change, it should go to a forum to confirm." - Romartus Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:17, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
I don't see it as a policy change, I see it as an option. Romartus can choose to add a new writer to the hall of shame for his first feature if he likes, he feels that it will encourage a promising new writer and we can all agree that this is a good thing and it should happen. I do not feel it is grounds to remove the general rule on the hall of shame as it serves a purpose, that of preventing the HOS list becoming exceptionally lengthy and reducing the workload of those who maintain it. Romartus' actions are an exception that suits the individual circumstances and should be that and nothing more. --ChiefjusticeXBox360 09:34, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
Yes I see but surely every new user who gets a feature needs encouragement so every new user who gets a feature would be an exception. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:38, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
Not necessarily. There are other options to encourage - see here and here. Romartus chose the HOS in this case, that is up to him. --ChiefjusticeXBox360 09:41, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough but I think we ought to leave the forum up for a while, all the same. Just so other users and admins can share views if necessary. And also for marketing purposes...

TASTY CREAM CRACKERS MADE BY CRACKERS

That's right! Ever since "Barking Mad" went bust we took over their responsibility to provide the World with crackers of cream and a tonne of debt. All products have been made by crackers, probably the ones from your local mental asylum or if not your local mental asylum, then the mental asylum you live in. So BUY BUY BUY CREAM CRACKERS NOW!

I neither mind Romartus walking newbies through the Hall of Shame for encouragement, nor deleting the HoS page thus created if the encouragement doesn't take and the newbie goes away after his first feature, to ensure that the Hall indeed does not become exceptionally lengthy.

Thanks for commenting. I was just making everyone aware of the situation and I think the solution of ignoring it in some cases seems to be fine. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:58, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
I think I was on about four or five features before I was added to the HoS. Just because I didn't even realise it was there. Still 1.5 images away from being in the image HoS. Hope to make it there one day.                               Puppy's talk page11:53 am 21 Apr 2014

Hallway in the Hall of Shame

How about a new section in the hall of shame named 'Hallway to the Hall of Shame'. That way someone is in the door and out of the rain but still not in the main room, which would encourage them to write more to get their two further features to get from the Hallway into the Hall?

Nice idea Al. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:58, April 18, 2014 (UTC)
I like this concept.                               Puppy's talk page11:51 am 21 Apr 2014
I am for. Should we vote? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 11:58, April 21, 2014 (UTC)
Puppy, as the Hall of Shame is assembled (by DPL, I assume?) from individual user HoS pages, is it possible to interrupt the assembly at n=3 for such a header? Spıke ¬ 12:53 21-Apr-14
I think having three features shows a commitment to good writing, an ability for good writing and a reason to display some writers above the rest. Otherwise we would have a pretty clogged list of one hit wonders. I like Aleisters idea as long as it's clearly appart from the rest of the hall of shame and it is't over clogged and it's kept in the order that articles are featured (otherwise it will become a long list over time of one hit wonders). New writers with their featured article will find their entry in the middle of a long list otherwise. Being at the top of the list will show prominence to the new writer and hopefully (who knows) motivate them to get a couple more articles. --ShabiDOO 03:13, April 26, 2014 (UTC)
Excellent idea! Vote on that? Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 05:25, April 26, 2014 (UTC)
Hallway in the Hall of Shame? Perhaps the broom cupboard?? The Smallest Room??? Yes, I have been trying to encourage writers to stay and contribute by adding their names but sometimes it seems a few people only appear to have one article in them. The guy who wrote the epic about a Welsh village has since disappeared and I think his motivation was really more to do with Wikipedia giving the place a minimalist write-up! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:36, April 29, 2014 (UTC)
