Description:
Mixed martial arts and boxing discussion community focusing on the UFC, PrideFC, K1 and other combat sports.

Site Name: The World of Nectotania

URL: http://www.necrotania.com

Description: Fantasy and Science Fiction writing community

Reason for Nomination: Necrotania has been active since 2002 in one form or another. Back then it was just a series of HTML files, a place to post my own stories. Since then it has evolved through 4 forum scripts (Ikonboard, IPB 1.3, SMF, and vBulletin) and 3 story archive scripts (Storyline, A custom software, eFiction).

Probably the most notable item to consider is the custom link between the story archive script and the forum. This not only provides for a single sign-in, but allows the current forum skin to be shared with the story archive..providing a consistent look and navigation for the whole site.

Both skins were developed by the great people over at http://www.gfxstyles,com

Thanks :)

URL: www.digitallywise.com
Description: Reviews & discussion for the truly wise. Movies, tv, music, games, & more.
Reason for Nomination: This site has come a long way since I first started it in May of 2004. The design of the site is completely custom done, there is great custom content in the form of media reviews by our community, and the memberbase is active and continually growing. I feel that it deserves to be listed in vBorg's poll for BotM, so if you agree please second this.

Site Name: BleedZao.com
URL: www.bleedzao.com/forums

Description: Largest fansite for the band Zao.

Reason for Nomination: Very customized layout. Most of the major pages used in vBulletin have been re-done in tableless css (forumhome, postbits, user profiles, and more) and should be functioning across all browsers too. Along with unique features, the style is unique as well -- It really doesn't look like a standard/typical forum by any means. Plus, it would make a cool birthday present to win one of these contests for once. :)

Site Name: STOnet

URL: www.startrek-online.net/messageboard

Description: Fan site for upcoming MMORPG, 'Star Trek: Online'

Reason for Nomination: I think STOnet is at a stage now that we're not going to be making any massive alterations for some time, so I thought I'd throw it in. We use quite a customised style and board now, though many of the vB.org plugins I use are backend/administrative. Some nice touches we've done include the random sidebar, which displays different info on every refresh, full IRC integration through a vBa page and a custom mod for searching posts by usergroup (DevTracker, which then got released here!)

Reason for Nomination: As a stunter I have seen pretty much every site out there and none have either the dual role (discussion and gallery) of stuntchat.com nore the functionality. Most are very simple both aesthetically and functionally. I have numerous hacks/mods that allow members to do everything from learn new tricks to a participating in a community similiar to myspace. They have their own "garage" to showcase their bike or their stunts allowing them to create an online "resume". Thank you.

Reason for Nomination:We had been up since August 2006 but then our forums had massive errors with phpbb, so I used SMF another great set of errors came, so i decided to start the forum from scratch with mybb and then purchased vbulletin (best thing I ever did), members kept coming back and registering, the boards have been up for a month now and we have over 2000 posts and 22 members. If we win if would eb a great acheivement for both the community, me as administrator and the staff to show off all the hard work we have put into the community to continue to provide 24 hours support through out the year.

Reason for Nomination: This vB-community is totally redesigned comparing with the original forum sofware.
I also second this site, the customisation is really quite nice even though it feels a little empty in places, and it's a shame the box at the bottom left hand corner of their community homepage feels a bit cluttered (it thankfully doesn't look too terrible when javascript's turned off though), but when jumping into the forums themselves it didn't look or feel like vBulletin at all (I ended up having to check the source code to see if it really was, since the "Powered by vBulletin" line I was expecting to see was removed). Nicely done.

Since Azh nom'd us above, Seconded:

Site Name: STOnet

URL: www.startrek-online.net/messageboard

Description: Fan site for upcoming MMORPG, 'Star Trek: Online'

Reason for Nomination: I think STOnet is at a stage now that we're not going to be making any massive alterations for some time, so I thought I'd throw it in. We use quite a customised style and board now, though many of the vB.org plugins I use are backend/administrative. Some nice touches we've done include the random sidebar, which displays different info on every refresh, full IRC integration through a vBa page and a custom mod for searching posts by usergroup (DevTracker, which then got released here!)

I second this forum, they look pretty awesome!

And I second The World of Nectotania, and vBCoders as well.

Site Name: Mika Fan Club

Description: Fan site for the number 1 recording artists Mika.

Reason for Nomination: I started the site and set it up within a few hours after hearing the first song from Mika on the radio. Since the start of Feb 2007 it has grown to thousands of users and many thousands of posts. Many users contribute write ups which I can push to the front page, Mika (the artist) knows of me personally, the forum got me meetings with universal in london etc. Essentially I love the site, it has an amazing community that is on 24/7 and it is the most successful site I have run to date. :)


I second this site

An amzing accomplishment for such a new site about a new artist

Site Name: RoadKill Cafe Counterstrike

URL: http://rkccs.com

Description: We are a popular gaming community for Counterstrike players, with 3 active servers. We have a completely customized board, with quite a few 'designed-by-us' aspects, such as our Admin List and Regs List pages.

Reason for Nomination: The forum skin is unique to our site, as i designed the skin myself, as well as a matching ACP skin. i have customized many aspects of the board, including a nearly full-scale replacement of the original default vb images (based off the army-green (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=86719) images by breaker) (a select handful, such as yellow/red cards, remain default).

We have also added and customized a 2nd skin for those who like the darker boards, as well as a choice to use the vB Default skin if the user prefers. we currently have only 11 members NOT using our designed custom skin.
