I shall nominate mine, myetalk.com.

We are a online discussion website mainly based on music and general discussion. We have gone through several make-overs but we think this one will be the best on the long run.

Forum: Photo Sharing Forum (http://www.photosharingforum.com)

I would like to nominate Photo Sharing Forum because I think it is one of the best I have seen with a very nice look and feel. I also think that the entire site is very useful and interesting. It seems to be a fairly new site, but I think it has great potential. I've spent a few days searching for vBulletin sites, and this one stuck out to me.

You are currently in the BOTM contest at vb.com for June and have been in one other already this year...seems a little odd that you would be running it over here and nominating yourself while in an active contest...can anyone say "conflict of interest"?

To answer your "conflict of interest", I like contests and competitions, the contest over at vb.com is something fun and interesting, but unfortunaetly there community is not as active as on here. Which is why I wanted this implemented on vb.org to get more competition going, and am I not allowed to nominate my own board like any other member or staff? :D

If the admins here have no issue with it, then neither do I. I was never for running a BOTM contest over here and no vote was taken on whether it should or shouldn't be implemented, it was just pushed by you and one other. Seems to me you are mighty eager for a win and have decided you have better odds over here than there....just my 2 peso's

vBHackers.com (http://www.vbhackers.com)

I would like to nominate vBHackers.com (http://www.vbhackers.com). I used to own this site, and I think that this site is a great resource for all vBulletin Board owners and Admins alike. Great style, and the staff & members there are all very wonderful people.

Bah...what the hell:D

I guess I'll nominate mine. www.sevencityforums.com (http://www.sevencityforums.com)

Its a local site geared towards the local community of Hampton Roads, Virginia. It is a general off-topic forum with a hint of social networking built in. It has been around since November 2005 and have earned 2400+ members since (not bad for a local forum). It is feature packed, yet simple. We had a CMS, but decided to remove it because it really was not used, people would just click through it and ignore the content for the most part. Its one of those forums that one would appreciate if you dig into it a bit. Registration is not necessary to read the forums or profiles, but some features do require registration. Please do not register on the site just to view something that is inaccessable. One thing im proud of is the tour located on the front page, take a look and tell me what you think. :)

Someone care to second my nomination? :bunny:

I want to nominate: http://www.vbhackers.com/
It's simply a very very good site for vbulletin resources, the previous owner LiveWire is a really good guy, he was dedicated to make vbhackers the best place to be. Also the new owner Rex is great, he's friendly and likes to maintain the forum. All the staff is nice and helps and gives support when you need it :) Be sure to check it out, it's a great friendly vbulletin resource place!

Site owners shouldnt be nominating their boards. Its a conflict of interests too IMO.

Freesteyelz
07 Jun 2006, 12:12
I don't see anything wrong with self-nominations. To be in the running anyway it has to have a second nomination. My only reservation to it (at this time) is that the second nomination is by an independent person who's not associated with the site being nominated.

In any case, think of the BOTM as a way to showcase your site. :)

LiveWire has put more effort into both this community and vBHackers.com than anyone else I know (don't take offense please, anyone :p), and the board simply has some awesome features.

I agree. When I had posted (#29) I did not realize one of the BOTM staff nominated his own board. While I chose not to be on the BOTM team I highly suggest that (this) person removes his entry for the validity and ethics of the contest.

I'd like to nominate http://www.vbseo.com/. Now i know this is a forum based on a commerical modification, but the modification itself is not the reason i am nominating the board (and i hope the staff can look past this too), moreso the excellent community spirit and support provided there why i would like to nominate http://www.vbseo.com/ as a Board of the Month :)

Of course, everything is judged equally. Remember, we are two to be accepting the nominations also to make sure "if" we get some misjudgements in any way or another, we will be able to discuss about them.

Good luck for vB Hackers, you guys seem to have alot of support!

I agree BOTM isnt directly appointed by The Chief and I. We simply organize it, and the Members are the ones who have the final descision on whats BOTM and what isnt so there really shouldnt be to much of a problem nominating your self or your own boards.

Alot of entries so far, lets keep up the good work ;)

ok i'm also voting for vBHacker.com (http://www.vbhackers.com/forum/index.php)

since i started out with forum software ie;phpbb and all the other free ones,
i didn't find it/them as good as i wanted. So i done some searching and pretty much gathered that vBuletin was the best. Anyway it was at this point that i found vBhackers and since then i've been a member and found that the site is extremely helpful. You never see a post in the support area go unanswered and thats credit to the board and staff :)

@Princeton & Danny.VBT: I respect your thoughts on the matter but I fully disagree. It's not about the end result but the entire process. The nomination of your own site alone is not the conflict of interest; deciding which boards go through the voting process, with your board as a contender, is.

If The Chief's board is in contention to go through the voting process two things will happen (if he chooses to participate at this stage of the contest): 1) He will value his board over another or 2) He will under-value is board and push for another. How can this not be a conflict of interest?

My point is not to discredit The Chief or Ntfu2. They may very well be honest people. I'm not down-playing the contest either as I believed in it from the onset. I should have added more input when I was approached to help out but I did not realize that this contest would get off the ground as fast as it did. Too soon? Only time will tell. While vB.org's BOTM is in the early stages I'd like to see that this matter is looked at more in-depth in the future for the legitimacy of the contest.

If anything, I'll continue this discussion (if warranted) in the Feedback forum. Again, good luck to everyone who has entered. :)

I would like to participate in this too, i think it is a great idea.

My site is dedicated to All year's of mustangs @ www.insanemustangs.com

We have a little bit of everything you would want to know about owning a mustang like: Mustang History, How to article's, Ride of the month, Ride of the year, timeslip database, 3 different pic gallery's, arcade system, Automotive new's around the world, Classified's, Calculator's for the automotive enthusiast's, and a whole lot more.

I opened up the site the best i could permission wise. There are still alot of area's within the site that aren't viewable to the public. When you are on my main page of the site and you go inside the forum's, if you want to get back to the main page, please click on the insanemustangs banner at the top of the page.
I sure hope i did this right as far as nominating my site. I have alot of work into it and it has only been getting better as time move's on.

Thanks, doug (hotwheels)

I think in the beginning, you may be right. The voting will probably go to the site that has the best name recognition. As time goes on though, it will actually start going to site's that don't have a name, but just a great design.

I firmly believe that having a Botm (Board of the Month) here at .org, benifit's all of our coder's. I think it is neat to go look at other site's that use the vbulletin software, but have added different hack's/mod's to their site's and to see how these hack's/mod's are being utilized. I personally don't believe that my site would be as great (my opinion) as it is, without .org and the coder's. I too, would love to see everyone that has a site that is built around vbulletin.com software, but upgraded with code's from within .org, share their work with everyone here at .org.

I sure hope the admin's/mod's continue on with this addition to .org. I for one am looking forward to seeing some very kick butt sites.

It is a Christian Youth forum, and so far has being going really well. I really like the general casual, relaxed feel of it. There are quite a few mods/hacks on it to make it more interesting, but i love the rotating banners. If there is one thing anyone should like, it is the rotating banners :P (banner changes each time you reload the site). Still quite a lot of work i intend on doing on it, but its not looking to bad.

Although its not much now a lot of features are going to be installed this coming month such as personal photo galleries, webmail, chat and loads more. Alot of work has been done to it even the way you see it now. Its a nice general place to sit and chat about anything thats you have questions on or whatever, theres a place for everything...

I would like to nominate Habbo Meadow Forum. (http://www.habbomeadowforum.com)

It is an active Habbo Hotel UK® based forum, aimed at 13-20 year-olds. It has quite a few modifications that make it extra special. It has forums for all sorts of discussion, Habbo Hotel and non-Habbo Hotel related. You can ask some specially trained Councillors questions in the ''Teen Life'' forums, discuss computers and technology and much more. I also like the idea of the portal and the very nicely designed badge system and arcade system.

The Moderation is also superb, with a strong Administration team, a great Super Moderating squad and brilliant Moderators to keep the forums safe. It also seems nice and welcoming when you first load it. The skin is also amazing and very nicely colour co-ordinated. An active forum, recieving more than 100 unique visitors a day, I am sure it deserves Board of the Month.

I would like to nominate/second www.vbulletin.org
the reasons are, They have proved to be a valuable source of information and and code for my site. I also feel that the site has gone through a lot just latley and they are still here working through there issues, i feel many others would have pulled the plug or just banned certain members.....

Hey may as well nominate my own forum. Which can be found here.

www.irishleagueforums.net

As you will see it is quite a popular forum and I have spent many hours building the site up over the last 4 years, when I originally had it on a Yabb free board.

The site is for Football/Soccer fans in Northern Ireland who follow the part time Irish League there.

As you will see many features has been added to the site, including a portal, arcade, photo gallery, arcade etc etc Just have a nosey and hopefully you will like what I have tried to do with the site. If you look into the club boards (each senior club in N Ireland has its own board) you will see individual banners designed for each club ie
http://www.irishleagueforums.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=13
The site however does have a subscription side to it, and I currently have 650 plus Patron members who pay a tenner a year to use the added features on the site, like the extra boards, arcade etc. Registered members can still post on the site, but some features are unavailble.

We did set up strict rules to start with to keep the site clean, ie no images in sigs, only Irish League Football Avatars allowed this was done to make the site as much theme related as possible, and I think it has worked well.

The patron membership fees means that ILF (Irish League Forums) can run on a excellent server and we also boast that we have donated over £4,000 in the past 12 months to charity and have keep the site ad free!

I have set up a Patron Logon for members here to have a wee nosey around the site. Thanks for the taking the time to have a look.
