These are not exhaustive. There are many approaches the Hall can take to bring more clarity to this subject. I think voters would welcome these guidelines.
These would be good and helpful. I could agree to something like this.
MLB also may want to look at the NFL's selection procedure. It seems more interactive. I'd think an official debate over candidates amongst the voters would be good.

All you have to do is call...
