I propose we auto-induct the obvious/noncontroversial by a vote of acclamation, then set a time limit (say, 1 month) during which we discuss 5 new additions. If we auto-induct 30 players, then add 5 per month, that's 90 players inducted within the first year.
How we select those 5 players, and what we do after the first year, are matters for discussion. But I think this would be the best way to get the project off the ground quickly AND leave a reasonable amount of time for intense debate over each individual inductee. Remember we're talking about a sizeable committee who will need to do research and come to a consensus, that can't be done in a week.
You really have a point.
Still... That Hall would be... Let's say we won't have the same constraints.
