That's right, I just went back and read the first post.  My mistake.  Happy it has been nominated though.
I thought that nominations could not be voted for until after their first month of candidacy?
I'm now questioning the practicality of that rule.  It sounds good in theory, but in practice it hasn't made a difference.  On average, if a nominee is to become legendary, it usually happens very quickly regardless.  There are exceptions, but for the most part people know what they like, and there is rarely discussion of merits.

I don't care for the rule, personally.  Maybe you could put it to a vote?

I'd like to nominate McCreary's Planet, a suggestion game.  Can it be voted for now or is it necessary to wait a month?

A bisexual space-witch questions existence and her place in the universe.  A young woman awakens in a dingy hut. Suffering from amnesia, she discovers herself through the battles she fights and the wars she wages. Slowly, she begins to discover her place in a high sci-fi universe filled with wonder and terror. Inspired by the works of Hideaki Anno and Eiichiro Oda.

I thought that would go in the RTD hall of fame.

It seems unfair that Adventures of Likot Ubendeb isn't in Hall of Legends.

McCreary’s Planet isn’t an RTD, so it can’t go there. It would fit here, though.

This is the correct place.  Take a look at what the previous archivist said:

Can forum games be nominated?
Yes. Absolutely. There is a forum game section in the Hall of Legends for a reason.

Those go here Roll to Dodge Hall of Fame & Library.
Technically that is only for Roll to Dodge games, which is a specific style of forum game in a specific subforum.

I agree. It's epic.

I thought we already voted to get it in.

I'd already forgotten that this has happened before.

Also +1 to McCreary’s Planet.

Hey folks.  There is a relatively large amount of new stuff to tackle, so here we go.

That's right, I just went back and read the first post.  My mistake.  Happy it has been nominated though.
I thought that nominations could not be voted for until after their first month of candidacy?
I'm now questioning the practicality of that rule.  It sounds good in theory, but in practice it hasn't made a difference.  On average, if a nominee is to become legendary, it usually happens very quickly regardless.  There are exceptions, but for the most part people know what they like, and there is rarely discussion of merits.
There is not enough activity to make a vote practical, so I'm using my discretion here.  The 1 month waiting between nomination and voting is suspended for now.  If in the future we start seeing like 4 or 5 nominations per month, it will be reinstated.  The Dwarven Language Codified can be voted upon by those who wish to.

The Dwarven Language Codified gets my vote too.  It's quite an undertaking, and very thorough.
+1 to DLC
Dwarven Language Codified hits 5 votes, which does include those from the previous update.

It's a good idea to go through the nominees every now and then.
+1 to Bridgeflickered.
Bridgeflickered now has 2.

I'd like to nominate McCreary's Planet, a suggestion game.  Can it be voted for now or is it necessary to wait a month?

Suffering from amnesia, she discovers herself through the battles she fights and the wars she wages. Slowly, she begins to discover her place in a high sci-fi universe filled with wonder and terror. Inspired by the works of Hideaki Anno and Eiichiro Oda.
Just as a reminder; The 6 month age minimum is a rule I am enforcing.  The nominee was posted February 9, which makes it 6 months old as of two days ago.  Using my discretion, the 1-month waiting period is on hold for now.
Also +1 to McCreary’s Planet.
McCreary's Planet join the nominees at 2 votes.

It seems unfair that Adventures of Likot Ubendeb isn't in Hall of Legends.

You did, and it's still there.  The required number of votes changed to 10 when I took over, following discussions immediately upon creation of the new Hall.  I feel this is still valid, as is the 1 year limit on nominees.  Likot has 6 votes and will remain nominated until December 2020.

It seems a bit strange to increase the number of votes necessary for the hall, when overall activity in this forum seems to be declining.

I gave this a lot of thought when I started, and there was a fair bit of discussion early on as well.  If the community was only a couple hundred strong, I would agree.  However, the DF community (even just looking at recent active users) numbers a lot more.  While there has been reduced overall activity in this sub-forum, total users across the boards is more or less stable.  Ten votes over a whole year is not a serious obstacle for a group this size, I don't think.  I am of course open to debate as ever, if anybody has 2 coppers on the issue.

And as long as I'm awake at this ungodly hour
Another +1 to McCreary's Planet.
McCreary notches another +1.
