Welcome! As you might remember, I hosted this same community thread (http://sclegacy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3128&highlight=beta+honors) back during the beta for WoL.

The rules are simple:

If you voted for someone who has a "Done!" tag, that vote resets. You may then place it on another person.
You must nominate a forum member, without a beta key, who you believe deserves to play the HotS beta. (Nominating yourself is not valid)
Community members will work as sponsors and will submit beta keys through a PM to me. This beta keys will be used to admit nominated members into the beta.
A list will be created with the nominated members. The order will tell who gets the sponsored beta keys. # of nominations, reputation and time will be used to create the list.
You may post that you don't have a beta key, but begging is not allowed in this thread.
You may nominate from 1 to 3 forum members.



List:
TychusFindlay: 6
Sarov: 5
Kimera757:5
Skyze: 5
Todie: 4
Visions of Khas: 4
Turalyon: 3
Evillesh: 3
Quirel: 1
Peanutbutter: 1
Spartan13: 1
Raif: 1
Twilice: Done!
Alex06: Done!
Hawki: Done!
TheProgramer: Done!
DemolitionSquid: Done!
Gradius: Done!
sandwich_bird: Done!


My nominations once again go to Sarov and sandwich_bird

Quirel

Nominate: Hawki.

Hawki
09-05-2012, 12:33 AM
Given Blade's nominations, I assume we can vote for two members? In that case, my votes would go to Quirel (repayment of nomination:)) and Kimera-what with him being the main admin of the SC Wiki, he can do the most with a beta key, what with editing the new info and the like.

I remember I was doing good in the WoL one til I got a key elsewhere, lol this is cool though.

If Gifted doesn't have one, give my vote to him

(Don't have a key yet, I'll post high masters reps here if I get one, random too!)

I'm a noob in this forum, can I vote too? If I can, I nominate Kimera an Hawki. The more Wiki mods, the better. I'd nominate Gradius but I don't know if he's active.

I don't have a key *wink wink*

topsecret221
09-05-2012, 07:24 AM
Presuming that Blade doesn't already have one, I nominate him. I will also nominate Visions of Khas.
By the way, thanks to both of you for being nice and reading my story a while back :D

I also have no beta key.

Spartan13
09-05-2012, 08:55 AM
Nominate Kimera757

Alex06
09-05-2012, 09:17 AM
I nominate Shadow Archon. He seems quite interested in the game and is active on the forums.

I don't have a key, but if I had one, I would create new maps using the new tilesets, help update the wiki and stream gameplay for you guys and hopefully even start commentating matches for SC2. I think I could do something great with it and provide everyone with something in return for getting a key.

Todie
09-05-2012, 11:32 AM
ah.. i remember this! its how i ended up getting a key halfway thru the beta. Good times!

put my votes down for Skyze and gifted for now. saving the 3rd vote 'til some more ppl post so we know who among the good ol guys still lurk in the shadows.

DemolitionSquid
09-05-2012, 12:35 PM
That I was not the first person nominated is deeply disturbing. You will be hearing from my attorneys.

Secondly, I nominate Pr0nogo. I'm dying to hear what kind of ridiculous tripe he'll complain about after acctually playing the game.

Shadow Archon

While I thank you for nominating me, I'm actually just willing to wait til it comes out. I'm more of a lore/story nerd than a multiplayer person (though I do enjoy it immensely) and I don't know if I could help the Beta in the long terms of balancing it. Also, if I do happen to be part of the Beta, I just hope I can balance it with my first year in college.

I did get in Beta last time though, and I did play a few matches here and there, though eventually my computer simply couldn't take it anymore and SC2 was beyond it on all settings. I just got a new computer two weeks ago and managed to play the game again after a two year hiatus, though so at least I could actually play it now. I just need to get back on my SC2 multiplayer Toss strats. I'm really rusty in both SC1 and SC2.

As for active on the forums, this is the first time I've been back here since 2010 postwise. Still thank you, but I'm just not sure if I'm the right person to give it to.

Ive also just gotten back from being away since 2010.. I dont wanna make it seem like im only here for a beta key; I was good friends with Gifted and Gradius and a few others, played lots of WoL with Gradius.. but the forums havent exactly been lively in conversations other than singleplayer (which I dont play) - which is why I've been gone (Plus, just joined the Military in January 2012 so I didnt even have internet up until July)

I have dial-up at home, so playing the game was always blocked by the mandatory updating after 30 day periods. It was terrible. Now that I have high speed at the college dorms though, it's so much more manageable.

Singleplayer should be great for HotS and I just can't wait. I liked the original story in WoL and I kinda of completely disagreed with Gradius' review, so as long as they don't totally mess it up, I should be happy with it. I just did my second play-through (no lag is great :D) and did notice some new things here and there, like the Dominion in Cuthroat.

Also, thank you for serving the military, regardless of where your from.

09-05-2012, 05:37 PM
My nomination goes to Sarov and i am also without the beta key :(

TheProgramer
09-05-2012, 06:14 PM
DemoSquid

Because he made me laugh . . . once.

MulletBen
09-05-2012, 07:33 PM
I nominate Skyze for being super cool and also really sick at Starcraft.

Also Gifted if he doesn't have one, because there's no reason why he shouldn't.

Gifted
09-05-2012, 08:14 PM
*winks at the peeps posting* Glad to see so much love. *waves at Skyze* Damn, missed a lot of you.

In completely ironic circumstances... I actually got a lot more time as of this week. *grins* Did I hear Season 2 of a certain stream coming up?

TheEconomist
09-05-2012, 09:35 PM
It's a coin toss between pr0nogo and DSquid. DSquid is infinteily more entertaining but Pr0nogo is somewhat of a puzzling enigma I sometimes have the patience to try to figure out.

So, I'll nominate Kimera757.

Quirel
09-05-2012, 10:58 PM
Since I seem to have an extra vote left (2 max, right?) I also vote Sarov.

Shadow Archon
09-05-2012, 11:39 PM
Oh, I also have an extra vote.

Nominate: Visions of Khas

Metal
09-06-2012, 12:25 AM
Oh right, rule number 5, i can nominate 3 members, my bad, then i nominate also Spartan13 and Skyze.

Hawki
09-06-2012, 01:08 AM
Third vote goes to Turalyon.

Alar
09-06-2012, 02:10 AM
I am currently lacking a key! -nods solemnly-

I vote Skyze because I like his avatar!

Twilice
09-06-2012, 09:26 AM
I nominate Todie.

EDIT:

Second nomination to Hawki, saving my third for now.

Visions of Khas
09-06-2012, 09:51 AM
I vote DemolitionSquid.


This election is more important than the presidential elections. This is all that matters. If you don't vote, the Koreans have won.

Noctis
09-06-2012, 12:06 PM
DemoSquid
Gifted
Gradius* (I know youre lurking somewhere)

DemolitionSquid
09-06-2012, 01:48 PM
After some thought, my final two votes go to Gradius (for being a fantastic pain in my ass) and Alex06 (for consistently keeping me up to date with leaked news and videos).

Blazur
09-06-2012, 03:25 PM
I vote for Gifted.

Kimera757
09-06-2012, 04:41 PM
I'm voting for Hawki, DemolitionSquid and Visions of Khas.

I thought these needed to be PM'd though.

The_Blade
09-06-2012, 04:43 PM
Keys are PMed, nominations are held in the thread.

Turalyon
09-06-2012, 06:47 PM
I'd like to nominate Vision of Khas, Gradius and Hawki.

TheEconomist
09-06-2012, 08:01 PM
Oh, you get three then? That makes it easier.

DSquid and Hawki please.

Gifted
09-07-2012, 04:18 AM
Ok, I just giggled like a little school girl. I just played ForGG. He obviously won, but the conversation in it showed how great of a guy he is :)

Uploading the vid/highlight going on youtube, I'm live on Legacy Observer right now

Dsquid for entertainment value.

Dude, DSquid's still here? He deserves a key just for tenacity.

Gifted
09-08-2012, 08:58 PM
Is there going to be other contests for keys from SCL? Guest article writing, maybe casting things/etc?While I can't say one way or another as I'm not an admin of this site. I can say I would be INCREDIBLY surprised if we didn't have beta keys multiple times to give away.

It's up to you to discern the best ways to prepare for those opportunities.

Arkalis
09-09-2012, 02:06 AM
When I noticed a spike of activity here it had to be beta keys xD

Anyway, I nominate Sarov and Gifted if they still don't have a key

The_Blade
09-09-2012, 02:08 AM
Gifted and I are currently within the beta.

09-09-2012, 03:15 AM
1. Kimera757 (level headed lore buff ftw)
2. DemolitionSquid (heh (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ItAmusedMe))

Since other folk remembered him, I'm giving my third vote to Gradius because he writes well.

In my previous post I already voted (http://sclegacy.com/forums/showpost.php?p=180403&postcount=6) for Kimera and Hawki.

Hello all you nice people,

I want to nominate: 1) Twilice and 2) Peanutbutter (if he is still active and all)

and remember to eat cake not keys :)

TheEconomist
09-11-2012, 03:37 PM
I'd like to replace Hawki with Gradius, because he's come out of the woodwork recently.

-- NM, apparently he's already been promised a beta key. Those who nominated hmi might want to replace him.

The_Blade
09-11-2012, 04:48 PM
Just as a commnet with no intent to destroy people: Gradius has the most rep of all the members.

People will stay in the list untill they have received their key from the comunity or from another source.

Reusing your nominations is not allowed. ^^ Use them wisely.

My last nomination goes to Grad then. Just for the fact that I miss his posts.

Twilice
09-11-2012, 04:56 PM
I also want to promote Lesh as my second vote if he is still playing.

TheEconomist
09-11-2012, 05:28 PM
Gradius would crush you all with the huge rep he made over the years :P

What?

Like I said, he's already been promised a key from another source. In this case, LoA. I know this because he told me.

That hard for you to +1 to a column and -1 from another, eh? I'll do it for you then.

09-11-2012, 06:15 PM
What?

That little green square under your avatar. Gradius has a lvl of 41. DS goes second with 26.


Like I said, he's already been promised a key from another source. In this case, LoA. I know this because he told me.

Yet, he still has no key. I believe that LoA will give Grad a key, but chances are that he might still get one from a community invite. This "system" just increases the probability of getting a key. He might wait "x" time for LoA's key or "y" time for a key in this thread instead of just "x". I just want to be fair with the mob.


That hard for you to +1 to a column and -1 from another, eh? I'll do it for you then.

Think on what that person will feel when you remove your support from him. I just believe that's harsh.

TheEconomist
09-11-2012, 07:46 PM

Riiiiiiiiight, but why bring it up? You act like I was insulting Gradius (my closest SC2/Internet friend).


Think on what that person will feel when you remove your support from him. I just believe that's harsh.

....

First of all, I couldn't care less. Second of all, I took back my vote because I talked to Gradius a few minutes later and he said he didn't need my nomination BECAUSE HE HAS ALREADY BEEN PROMISED A KEY. Since he told me to remove my support, I doubt he'll lose any sleep over it. Besides, if you're worrying about people's feelings, feel sorry for the person who now cannot get an extra nomation due to some technicality.

--------------------

PS: Not that it matters, but, unless I'm reading something wrong, I'm second in rep, with mr. peasant being third, and DemolitionSquid being 5th.

You should invent a word for it! that could be your mark!


... srsly tho, others are thinking it too. it seems i wouldnt have been nominated either if it wasnt for the closer ties ive made thru chats and games with some of the fightclub ppl, few of witch i ever really considered very active here.

on that note, since Twilice is the only one of those who have showed himselfhere, my third and final nomination goes to him. hes a really good and creative player actually. in an effortless kind of way; hes probably played the game significantly less than me, but he plays two leagues above me (masters), with random...

personally i like to theorize and workmyself up to some metagamy approaches to strategies in various matchups that may deviate more or less from standard play. ppl like Twilice just do crazy shit and move on without giving a fuck.

@TheProgramer: No offense guy, but all I remember from you were some useless and asinine topics that contributed nothing other than lulz from "This guy REALLY brought that up?" Again, no offense. Of course, I have second place in reputation around here and am probably the most active around here, yet I have not a single vote. I have equally as many fucks to give about that.

As per DSquid's advice,

I almost feel bad for not being particularly active in Starcraft 2 anymore. But maybe if I get a key I will start to become active again ;)

I was born in America. Let's just say I don't necessarily see how negative certain things come across.

Apologies.

Pr0nogo
09-12-2012, 09:18 PM
Secondly, I nominate Pr0nogo. I'm dying to hear what kind of ridiculous tripe he'll complain about after acctually playing the game.

Lerl why am I even on this list? I thought I pissed everyone off too much.

Thanks for the nomination. I vote DSquid. Only because I know he'll probably just give me the key anyways, to see what kind of ridiculous tripe I'll complain about. ;)

If I end up getting a key from Blizzard, I'll let you guys know. However I end up acquiring one, I'll be sure to do a lot of videos. Probably not streams, just FRAPSing and relaxing.

/e second vote goes to Tychus.

third vote: tychus (because I want both him and pr0nogo to win)

Pr0nogo
09-12-2012, 10:09 PM
Can you even vote for the same person more than once? I didn't see a rule against it. bahaha


Why make videos of a game that is so awful you should be paid to play it? Spychi all over again...

Because I'll be paid if YouTube monetisation works, silly. I'm a partner.


Much appreciated (?) and not that it makes a difference, but give the vote to someone else, I have ZERO time for a beta.

So give me (or someone else who deserves it more) the key if you get it.

09-12-2012, 10:31 PM
Well, unless someone calls me in for an interview (I've submitted more than a fair share of job applications and I'm still doing more), I'd have to start working the corners.

Hell, I might have to get the spots in between the corners. I don't dress as slutty as I should.

So, can you mass-ban or did you have to click the ban button every single time? :eek:

It's a bit more complicated than just clicking a button. Let's just say that I wouldn't be surprised if I've banned 1000+. :D


Can you even vote for the same person more than once? I didn't see a rule against it. bahaha

Sorry but no, you can't. Think of it as a common sense rule built into #5. :p

Oh wow.

How does the mechanics of banning bots go? I know you have to block the IP address. Do you do coding on the site or something similar?

Actually thinking about it, having an interface for it would be bad if someone managed to hack into an account with the privileges or something like that.
