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)

Auto-nomination criteria

  • Atlantic - Starting next year, the auto-nomination criteria (for storms to bypass the "two-seasons" rule) for the Atlantic will be raised to 15 billion USD in damage and/or 500 deaths.
  • East Pacific - 1 billion in damage and/or 100 deaths.
  • West Pacific - 5 billion in damage and/or 1,000 deaths.
  • North Indian Ocean - 1 billion in damage and/or 3,000 deaths.
  • South-West Indian Ocean - 150 million in damage and/or 150 deaths.
  • Australian Region - 300 million in damage and/or 15 deaths.
  • South Pacific - 100 million in damage and/or 20 deaths.

This is what I'm thinking for auto-nomination criteria for now. Certain basins have some storms cause more damage or deaths than others, so the bar is different between basins, but if any of you have some other suggestions, we can talk about it here. Ryan1000 04:27, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

$15 billion for the North Atlantic is a little high, perhaps. There has yet to be a $10 billion storm that hasn't been retired/called catastrophic. ~ KN2731 {talk} 10:53, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps, though storms have been getting more destructive in the Atlantic and auto-inducting every recent storm with certain amounts of damage would cut off induction of older storms. Or maybe we could induct some more storms in future years, like the WPac's 20-10-5 rule to lighten the load of notable storms in the Atlantic hall of fame. And then cut it back to 10-5-3 when we get lower on the notable storm count. Ryan1000 12:13, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

I suppose we could give the Atlantic 20-10-5 for up to 2020 before cutting it down, while hoping we don't see any storms that autoqualify or seriously contend for qualification over the next few years. There have been too many destructive storms recently. ~ KN2731 {talk} 14:53, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

Yeah I think 20-10-5 would be better for the Atlantic, but we'll start with that next year since this year is already done (though you could still vote on the nominees in the other basins if you'd like, I added them). Ryan1000 15:11, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

We're now at the start of 2019, so we can do the hall of fame for this year in all basins. Like I mentioned earlier, we'll do 20-10-5 for the Atlantic this year to thin the list up a bit; also, after some reconsideration I've decided to keep the auto-nomination damage bar for the Atlantic at 10 billion for now. If we get some more destructive hurricanes this year or sometime in the near future, we'll up it to 15 billion later on. Therefore, Michael will be eligible this year, but Leslie and Nate (from last year) aren't yet eligible because of the two-seasons rule. Otto and Alex from 2016 are eligible by now.

  • Tropical Storm Selma (2017)
  • Hurricane Lane (2018)
  • Hurricane Walaka (2018)
  • Hurricane Willa (2018)

Because notable storms are harder to come by in the Eastern Pacific (many years can pass without a significant storm in impacts or that is retired), just vote for 5 of the storms above, then when we have enough votes, nominate 3 of those 5, and we can each select our most notable storm among them. EDIT: As a side note, if you haven't seen the Auto-Nomination Criteria above, in order for a storm to be eligible to be voted in right away in the EPac to bypass the two-seasons rule, it has to cause at least 1 billion in damage and/or 100 deaths, so Lane and Walaka aren't eligible for nomination until the end of the 2020 season. Sorry. Ryan1000 12:32, January 1, 2019 (UTC)

2019 East Pacific Hall of Fame Nominees

We got the following 5 storms with at least two or more votes:

  • Hurricane Hiki (1950) Ryan1000 03:13, January 17, 2019 (UTC)
  • Hurricane John (1994) Ryan1000 03:13, January 17, 2019 (UTC) Sandy156 :) 01:08, February 17, 2019 (UTC)
  • Tropical Storm Agatha (2010)
  • Hurricane Odile (2014) Ryan1000 03:13, January 17, 2019 (UTC) Sandy156 :) 01:08, February 17, 2019 (UTC)
  • Hurricane Darby (2016)

So now we each vote for 3 of these 5, and those 3 will be the East Pacific inductees for the year. We'll need more input on the other basins below before we get to nominating storms there. Ryan1000 03:13, January 17, 2019 (UTC)

West Pacific

Adding WPac below. Besides the unique ones like Tip and Vamei there are lots of deadly and/or damaging storms so I'll go up to 2000 for now. ~ KN2731 {talk} 13:14, June 16, 2018 (UTC)

It's now 2019, so voting is ready here. Like last year, we're doing 20-10-5 for the WPac due to the large list, so vote for 20 storms, we'll then go to round 2 for inducting, then we can each pick our top 5 among those 10. Some of the storms are crossed out since they lack the impact requirements to bypass the two-seasons rule (5 billion in damage and/or 1,000 deaths); this includes Jebi @Real Ger, so we'll have to wait until the end of 2020 for him. Rumbia and Hato are eligible however. Ryan1000 12:32, January 1, 2019 (UTC)

Here's a list of some notable storms in the South-West Indian Ocean basin. This basin has limited data for the impacts of storms before 1980 or so, but we'll still do the WPac's rule in this basin for now, which is 20-10-5 to lighten the list a bit. If we have fewer storms in a few years, we'll cut it down to 10-5-3 or 5-3-1. Ryan1000 12:32, January 1, 2019 (UTC)
