View Full Version : Nominations for BotM - July 2006


The Chief
07 Jul 2006, 15:29
Here is the second contest for BotM here on vb.org.

Here are some changes we have made to the Official BotM Rules (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=120097) and voting. I will put the guidelines here for everybody to see them.
Global Rules
1.1) No rallying whatsoever is allowed either internally at vBulletin.org or externally. Any evidence proving this will result in disqualification.
1.2) Any complaints/questions should be forwarded via Private Message to the BOTM Leaders: The Chief and Ntfu2. They will be evaluated and escalated to vBulletin.org Staff if necessary.
1.3) If a candidate wins, the candidate is not eligible to enter the Board of the Month contest for another 6 months.
1.4) All nominated boards must use vBulletin, open to all guest, and can not contain or promote any adult and/or illegal material. Any boards that go against this rule will be disqualified immediately.
1.5) The vBulletin team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate BOTM Rules and Guidelines. (Examples include sites about drugs and/or sex.). If you have any complaints please refer to clause 1.2
1.6) vBulletin.org Staff can not nominate/second a board.

Nomination Guidelines
The Board of the Month is run on a nomination system.

* Primary Nominations can only be made by the Site Owner or Administrator.
* All Nominations must be seconded by anyone else.
* In the nomination thread, one may only nominate their board or second an already nominated board. Any other posts involving anything else will be deleted.
* Nominations will be voided if it is not seconded.
* When nominating please post the URL to the forum, a short description what makes your board stand out from default vBulletin, and a reason for nomination that will motivate others to second the nomination. If the staff feels that a nomination post is too promotional it will be edited accordingly.
* If the nominated forum is not available at the time of creation of the poll the next nominee in line will be selected to take its place.

Voting Guidelines
* The 5 boards that have the most seconded nominations will be placed in the poll in alphabetical order.
* The thread containing the poll will be closed to any replies to prevent any unnecessary influence.
* Voting is up to the voters; no one can force or rally a vote, please visit all nominated and vote for the best board, not the board that you are most familiar with. Please check for clause 1.2 of the Global Rules section above.

Voting/Nomination Dates and Deadlines
* Nominations will begin on the 3rd of every month, and accepted for the 8 following days till the 11th.
* Actual Voting will take place during the 12th till the end of the month. This will leave you around 18 days for you to vote for your favorite board.

We are sorry to have started this a bit late, but we have had some difficulties with organization :)

Now let your nominations begin!

This is a work in progress, but I think it deserves recognition. The amount of time I have spent on the design, modifications, and the site in general (in my opinion) makes it worthy of a BotM title. My first time entering in a BotM contest, so, I don't really know what to expect.

* Actual Voting will take place during the 12th till the end of the month. This will leave you around 18 days for you to vote for your favorite board.
Last month you didn't follow the unpublished rules. This month, you publish rules and promptly break those.
