Description: We are a popular gaming community for Counterstrike players, with 3 active servers. We have a 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 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 custom designed skin.

Site Name: DN Lodge Webmaster Forums

URL: http://www.dnlodge.com

Description: A community of webmasters who are all interconnected through domains, which is what DN stands for in our title. DN Lodge was launched August 8th, 2005, and has been live ever since: for 20 months. The owner, Brandon (me), is currently 15 and was 13 when he launched the forum. The forum currently has almost 5,000 members, and 32.6 thousand posts. Between school work, practicing the piano :P, and other online projects, I made time for DN Lodge and it has always been one of my main projects.

Currently we are holding a contest, with $6,100 in sponsored prizes, and $250 in cash. We have had a few contests months back, but none this big. I spent a lot of time finding sponsors and setting up the contest threads, etc.

I think DN Lodge is different from other forums because everyone knows each other, and many long time friendships have been formed through this forum. We are also different because we understand that everyone makes mistakes, and we don't ban people for small things such as double posting, etc. And even those who make major mistakes, we give them one chance before their banned. Our moderating style tends to be more laid back, although obvious spam is not tolerated and is instantly deleted. I know a lot of forums who have uptight admins and mods, and I don't think it's healthy for the overall community development.

We currently have 4 moderators, and 2 admins. Between the 6 of us, we keep all signs of spam out. The relationships within our staff is excellent as well, which I feel is a crucial to having a successful forum. Simply put, if there are conflicts within forum staff, things just won't work out. We

DN Lodge's skin is custom, which we got done at Sitepoint a while back. When DN Lodge first launched, we were on the phpbb platform. My first investment other than the domain and hosting for the forum I knew had to be vBulletin. As soon as I had the money, I purchased vB as a leased license (DN Lodge is now on an owned license). The next major investment we made was in vBseo, which we think was also a good investment as well.

We currently have plans that we are working on, involving expanding the forum, and what content we offer.

Reason for Nomination: Well, I figured why not :). I've spent hours on end working on this forum for the benefit of its' members, and so far all has went well and paid off. I would be thrilled to be named vBulletin Board of the Month. For months vbulletin.com has been my main source (more like only source) for vBulletin mods, although I may not post much here, I do visit often. I think you have a great site, and BOTM is a really cool thing that you guys do.

I hope you consider my entry.

Thanks,
Brandon

Reason for Nomination: After nearly 2 years of working hard on the site, I just want a little bit of recognition. The skin is unique and unlike other computer forums we don't shoo away and insult new members and people who are not so experienced with computers.

Reason for Nomination: I'm not going to hard sell my forum but the real reason why I started this community is because I see so many people on the street.. begging for money and all.. i hate it, why don't they just work.. rather than spend the whole day on the street.. earning mere bucks. This forum is a paid community where people can earn by participation.. with this I hope those people begging on the street can work for it and get a decent living

Site Name: SW-Fans - Not Your Average Star Wars Forums
URL: http://sw-fans.net
Description: Sw-Fans has been around since 1999, as a multi-purpose discussion and roleplaying forum. Our Star Wars based roleplay was one of the first of its kind, and has been joined by several other genres, including a World of Darkness and X-Men based roleplay. Sw-Fans is a place for discussing movies and media of all types, as well as just hanging out with friends. Not your average Star Wars forum... not just for roleplaying.
Reason for Nomination: Sw-Fans uses a lot of modifications to present our members with features they might not be able to get elsewhere. We have several custom skins available (we lost about twenty with our upgrade to 3.6.0 but have been working on recoding them to work with the 'new' vB) and quality graphic designers in our membership who love to help out. We have a real community that's been around for over seven years, and new faces are always welcome. Our staff works hard and is very dedicated to giving our members a quality experience.

I'd love to increase our member base by getting Sw-Fans some more recognition.

Reason for Nomination: We really want to make a impact for the gaming community and let more people in on this fast growing sport. By being nominated it will give us a chance to get our name out to more people and expand our forums. It will also reward all the great staff who made my site possible and all the people who helped designed my site as well. We have worked very hard to make our mark in the gaming community and I hope you see that in our site when you view it.

Thanks

I rescind my vote because vBulletin.org's Board of the Month competition is being made a mockery of as seen in the April voting!

I actually like the style.
Fits Disney theme very well.
Seconded :)
Very nice looking IMHO, and I love Disney. I'll third (if a third is necessary). I am surprised you can do this - they are so protective of the use of their copyrights and trademarks. Is this an official Disney forum?

URL: http://www.mkpitstop.co.uk/forum

Description: MK PitStop is a website that helps people with a number of subjects as follows:


Webmasters
Computers
Computer Consoles
Business
Ebay
Gaming
Graphics

MK PitStop allows all ages from 13 upwards. The forum is free and fully moderated to keep all content clean and respectful.

Reason for Nomination: I have been running MK PitStop for 1 Years, 5 Months, 25 days today, this website was started to allow myself and others to help people in the best way as we can. I have been on the computer every day since I started this website, apart from 4 days when I was ill (I even worked on it, on Christmas day). This website is my life and my biggest hobby; I place as much information on there from what I learn.

In the future I hope to add more subjects to the forums so that it can help more people, but at the moment I am trying my best to not put guests off. When I first started the website I tried using a different forum software and was very unhappy with the hard work I had to place in to remove the bugs, but then I went with vBulletin and it was the best thing I ever did with the website. I have installed lots of hacks and even started doing some my self, thanks to vBulletin.com & vBulletin.org with there great community they made this happen more for me.

I would give my right arm to make my forum to become one of the top leading forums on the internet, maybe one day if I keep trying this will happen, but until then I will just hope for my website to win BOTM.

Thank you.

Site Name: Aunt Clara's Dominican Cooking / La Cocina Dominicana de T´a Clara

URL: http://www.dominicancooking.com / http://www.cocinadominicana.com

Description: Our site is dedicated to promote the Dominican culinary culture. With hundreds of recipes (all with photos), articles, tips and tricks and an active community we are by far the largest repository of information on Dominican cooking in any type of media. We opened five years ago and almost a year ago migrated the entire site from html to a heavily modified version of vBulletin that mimicked the old structure of our site.

Both our sites (one in English, one in Spanish) share the same user database.

Reason for Nomination: It is a different site from your typical vBulletin forum. We have an active forum, but each section of the site is independent yet running on vB. It is mostly based on template modifications.
