Obtaining Historical Status

A policy is in place which outlines the method to attain historical status.

  1. Groups must no longer actively contribute to the game.
  2. A nomination should be made on Category talk:Historical Groups.
  3. Within two weeks of a nomination, the group must be approved by 2/3 of the voters, with a minimum of 15 voters for a nomination to pass. The only allowable votes are Yea and Nay.
  4. Groups that pass will be added to the category as described below.
  5. Groups must allow a week to pass between nominations.
  6. Groups must allow 4 months in between when the group disbands and when they can be nominated for Historical Status. (Note: Only for Malton-based groups)


Nominations for Historical Status

When nominating a group, please add a note to Template:Wiki News and add {{HistoricalGroupVoting}} to the top of the group's page. Also, please add {{HistoricalVotingRules}} under the group's application for historical status.

Columbine Kids

Now that probably the last member wearing the tags has switched to a different group (welcome to Cobra, YOG :P) and the group as such hasn't coordinated at all for a long while (the forums have been down for months), it's probably about time to recognize Columbine Kids as historical.

From their very founding day on, they have polarized the UD metagame, going even as far as getting the group put up for deletion vote due to bad taste, or because no one thinks of the children, or whatever the reasoning was for those who voted for deletion. And it wasn't just at the beginning that they shocked and polarized the UD crowd, it even continued throughout their career.

They have not just made impact by their concept, though. They were also effective PKers, racking up massive bounties, performing highly coordinated timed strikes and getting involved in events like the 2008 Wedding Crash or Samhain Slaughter 1 to 3. They were recognized in the Malton Murder Awards 2010 as nominee for Best PKer Group.

Seriously, if you are involved in the PKer metagame at all, you have heard of them and their exploits. -- Spiderzed 18:38, 27 March 2011 (BST)

    You should think about slapping an inactive tag on them and starting the clock. -MHSstaff 03:46, 28 March 2011 (BST)
  6. For about a year the leading source of UD metagame butthurt (other than wiki drama, which is the untouchable Queen of UD Drama), inspiration behind a few less competent attempts at shock groups (such as Pumpkin Pedophiles) and a couple of even less competent hunter groups dedicated to 'teaching us a lesson', we made a significant splash in both game and metagame. Also there were two School Shooting tours that aren't mentioned above, which put hundreds more corpses on the streets of Malton. 1 2. --Papa Moloch 03:28, 28 March 2011 (BST)
  7. Never even met any of them in game, but I still heard about them. Sick of all this historical status elitism. They were well known enough to be let in.-- | T | BALLS! | 03:41 28 March 2011(UTC)
  8. They are worth giving historical status --Bluewaterdragon 04:02, 28 March 2011 (BST)

No

  1. Come back in three months - See rule #6 above. It hasn't been four months since they went inactive. YOG only left a month or two ago, otherwise I'd say yes. Aichon 19:36, 27 March 2011 (BST)
    the forums have been down for months - as indicated here. Moloch's words don't sound like the group has been active as a group either for quite some time before. -- Spiderzed 19:52, 27 March 2011 (BST)
    say yes it's easier-- The preceding signed comment was added by these amazing looking bitch 20:24 27 March 2011 (UTC)
  2. No - Very few pker groups do enough to be considered notable or historic. The only reason anyone knows who the Columbine Kids are is pretty much some very minor wiki drama. They're no Amish, Red Rum, or DEA. They didn't help make a huge event and the most you can even note them for in their nomination is as being a tag along? An Historic Group these things do not make. --Karekmaps?! 20:01, 27 March 2011 (BST)
  3. No - emphatically as Karek. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 03:36, 28 March 2011 (BST)
  4. No - As Aichon. -MHSstaff 03:46, 28 March 2011 (BST)
  5. NO - Who the hell are these guys never even heard of them get real don't you have actually had to of done something? Divs 04:48, 28 March 2011 (BST)
