One thing before we continue -- I thought of putting this up a few months ago.
That's why I came up so quickly with how I imagine this project.
The thing is -- I'm just not sure I can run this. I'm currently on leave from work, and might return to work if everything goes well in a few weeks... or in a few months. I think the bulk of time the projet will take is mainly setting this up, and coming up with an ideal procedure.
For the rest, it's like
- Adding the votes
- Coming up with names to put on the ballots (and even then, is it really necessary? Let's say we put ... Dean Prentice on the ballots. Great player -- still, if the guy gets more than 5 votes on any given year, I'd be extremely surprised).
- Back to the ballots, they may STILL have some relevance. Let's say that, for whatever reason, somebody votes Jean Beliveau in for the 1973 "round" - if we don't go with automatic inductions and keep the 3 years waiting time. That's basically one vote loss, 'cause Beliveau isn't eligible in 1973. That's why a minimum of research is necessary.
