    Re: Oatmeal (Text/Topical)

    probably worth mentioning that in addition to the legends battle he was nom'd like 3 times.

    I vote yes, his accomps are across the board in different platforms and are well above simply champing a league or two.

    Re: Oatmeal (Text/Topical)

    I say with a big tourney win or another legendary piece other than the battle he would get a yes for me. To further justify what I mean. He's only won 1 GG while King won 4 of them and has a bigger list of accomplishments.

    Re: Oatmeal (Text/Topical)

    I mean you have to also take into account that he came in 2010 around the time when the majority of the heavy hitters in topical and poetry were gone. he is a good writer but we haven't really been able to see him against the sites best, and I'm not sure what he brings to OM is unique and perfected enough to negate that fact.

    I like Oats, but I don't think he's quite as accomplished as our other Legendary writers. No, for now.

    Re: Oatmeal (Text/Topical)

    really the only knock against Oatmeal is the lack of a long list of a accomps.

    when he was active in SS, he had a legendary battle with token, and AT LEAST one other nom'd (against Black). i'm pretty sure there was a third but i'd have to go find it.

    that being said, anyone who's been around RB a while knows that legend noms are far and few between. so for someone to get nom'd 2 or 3 times in a short period, and actually get one voted in on top of that, is quite an accomplishment. i think that if he had 2 get in, or all 3, this would be an auto yes from everyone, so the noms have to be considered imo.

    second big factor for oat imo is the live success he's had. i've seen him do very well (win maybe) in slam competitions with pieces he dropped on this site first, and for someone to take their work off the site and have real world success with it means more than any RB accomp tbh.

    Re: Oatmeal (Topical)

    I believe i like oats work from what i have read. I dont know if my opinion is even valid. I mean i have participated in the LLL, but other than that, i never really won too many before i gave that up and picked up the microphone. I do like to and have a good idea what im doing. But i dont know if good is good enough when youre judging some of the best the site may have to offer.

    That said, i will have a read through the links and come back with an edit later on.

    Re: Oatmeal (Topical)

    I've been at this site something like 10+ years and think I'm respected enough across multiple boards for my opinion to hold some weight in this field -

    Oats should be inducted.

    Re: Oatmeal (Topical)

    I'm going to readily admit, topical writing is not the least bit interesting to me. I started reading a couple links and I got bored. Not to discredit any skill it contained. From a catalogue standpoint though what was provided doesn't seem like enough to call "legendary".

    Vote no

    Re: Oatmeal (Topical)

    Just a question - why are only my topical accomplishments being considered? If someone excelled in multiple areas, why categorize them in only one?
