    Default FIVE votes will ensure the induction of the artist/band into the md hall of fame

    MD members, I need your expert feedback ! Matt had suggested at the onset of the HALL of FAME Forum that the required nomination votes be amended to 5 from 10. That suggestion was proposed over three months ago and to be truthful I am slanting toward's Matt's idea of 5 votes. At the time I rejected the proposal and wanted to see the response that we would receive from the overall membership. To be frank the response has been abysmal to say the least.

    Therefore I would like your yay or nay to bring forward Matt's proposal of 5 votes for nomination. It appears there are no more than 5 or 6 members who even pay attention to this Forum so we may as well lower it to 5 to ensure nomination for the other great artists who are sitting in limbo for eternity ! ..I'll make the necessary amendments to the Forum if I can receive a concise feedback on this proposal.


    The required number of votes for induction into the Hall of Fame is now 5 !

    I am proud to announce that the THE BEATLES have received the required 10 votes and are the first group/artist to be inducted into THE MD HALL OF FAME !

    (All MD members please nominate your favorite artists that you feel are Hall of Fame worthy ! It only takes a few lines to justify their nomination !)
