SITE:General [M]ayhem Forums![/B]

URL: www.genmay.com

Description: Large off-topic forums with a pruned user base of around 50K users. Unusual in that the off-topic forum is the lead forum and tech, auto, etc are sub-forums only. The forum is a 'real-time' forum because there are a few hundred to thousand users online simultaneoulsy through out the day...

Genmay was formed when the off-topic forums at Hardforums.com were abruptly shut down in July 2003- a few members decided to create their own country on the internet.


Reason for Nomination:Genmay has been famous for several key internet events such as the public availability of Paris Hilton's hacked sidekick directory- article mentioning genmay in Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/05/19/AR2005051900711_3.html) and the Christopher Walken 2008 fake presidential bid reference #21 on his wikipedia entry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Walken).

Since last year we have been at the center of a wikipedia conspiracy when our entry was deleted suddenly (http://www.digg.com/tech_news/Wikipedia_s_Mod_Saxifrage_deletes_Genmay_page)

Genmay is now the anchor of a whole network of forums. All users have been merged so that any user can post on any network forum with their original log-on and password.

The network forums include:

www.spiceforums.com (adult conversation)
www.eternal-allegaince.com (celebrities and their fans)
www.bigscreentalk.com (TV and Movies)
www.therockforum.com (rock n roll)
www.lovethatsound.com (all other music)
www.forumbabes.com (forum hot or not type forum)


Genmay.com has the benefit of many customizations which will be pushed onto the other forums including all the fun stuff that is for sale in our store Basically, since genmay is a rough and tumble, off-topic forum- you have the ability to pay for moderation of each other through paid thread-locks and unlocks. Additionally an individual can have their avatar and title messed with through the store. We believe in Mayhem and these features add to the chaos. The sub-forums are very much on-topic however, and people are impressed at how fast their threads are commented on in any of these subject specific sub-forums.

I would truly appreciate a second to this nomination! :)

We will soon have the ability for users to purchase banners and text ads across our entire network. We will only accept ads from users that relate to their own e-business, or that are links to their threads or efforts online- no commercial advertising.

Beyond all of this will be the launch of our super secret, integrated user profile, search, and transaction engine- www.crowdgather.com

Site Name: Stirrdup
URL: http://www.stirrdup.com

Description: Social news site similiar to Digg and Reddit, but built upon the idea that the content that is the most interesting isn't necessarily the same as what everyone agrees with. Stories gain points through users doing what they would normally do while using a site (clicking links and leaving comments) and the ones that gain the most interest are promoted to the main page. If they continue to hold interest, they will stay higher on the page until the time weighted system slowly moves them down to allow more fresh content in. This fixes the "bury brigade" censorship that plagues Digg and Reddit.

Reason for Nomination: The entire site is implemented using vbulletin plugins. Not a single file change. Really shows the flexibility of the system.

URL: http://www.gamesey.com

Description: Gamesey is a gaming site with a difference - we have a unique 'club' concept which we hope will help eradicate negative fanboyism on gaming sites (or least on ours). If you're into gaming, you'll know just what I mean.

Reason for Nomination: I think Gamesey has a great custom design that pushes vBulletin - almost every element has been customised (from the front end to the back, such as control panel and profiles) but very careful consideration has been paid towards site compatibility, and more importantly speed and efficiency.

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.

If they continue to hold interest, they will stay higher on the page until the time weighted system slowly moves them down to allow more fresh content in. This fixes the "bury brigade" censorship that plagues Digg and Reddit.

Reason for Nomination: The entire site is implemented using vbulletin plugins. Not a single file change. Really shows the flexibility of the system.

Second this - great use of vB :)

Description: The Automotive Enthusiasts' Network
Reason for Nomination:

I think it has a decent design for a vbulletin software.
I am especially proud of the mainpage.
Please allow time and let the main page load completely.We have images resizing script to automatically resize the images to match the layout. It may be a little slow, but that's mostly because of our server maxing out during peak hours.

Zerotohundred.com have lotsa content and is pretty big with 52,000members as well. So it is well established.

Things to notice:
-Main page
-Navigation
-Forum home icons

Reason for Nomination: I'm nominating this forum because the community is just awesome. There are support areas for women struggling with anything from the blahs to major depression. Digital Art tutorials and help. Parenting. Even prank groups where we do horrible things to each others avatars and titles. It's entirely member driven, even the the ads are for members only businesses.

I hope I did that right! Now to hope the forum gender bias doesn't kill our chances :D

Site Name: BarcaClub.net

Forum URL: http://www.barcaclub.net (http://www.gamesey.com/game-forums.php)

Who Am I: I'm a 15-year-old developer and designer from Oman, I've always loved website designing and PHP scripting and I've always been a fan of vBulletin, I first knew vBulletin somewhere in 2002 and I've always dreamed to have a website of my own with a vBulletin forum to be my community solution, that dream came true in 2006 when I was able to pay bills for my site and my vBulletin license with the help of everyone who supported me.

Everything is designed by me and I'm happy with vBulletin, it made my site very successful.
I have some experience in PHP scripting language and MySQL database.
I would love to be nominated alteast once as the board of the month, I hope it can be true this time.

Description: Since it's inception it has evolved to become a fully fledged FC Barcelona internet community, run by its members to serve the members themselves.

BarcaClub.net is an independent website dedicated to FC Barcelona, and the main intension is to provide all the latest news, results, and information.

The aim of BarcaClub.net is to enable and promote global communication between FC Barcelona fans from around the world.

Since the start in 27 July 2006 as a focused FC Barcelona message board, BarcaClub.net have developed into encompassing a lot of other areas of interest to its members. In fact BarcaClub.net is essentially made and managed by its members, which means that it is ever evolving around what the members want and like.

Reason for Nomination: I think BarcaClub.net is different than the other soccer club websites, it makes you feel as if you are in the club itself and at the same time not only discuss about what's going on in the club, we also discuss about whatever we want.
This is a real community, with unlimited attachment uploads and several administrators who will keep the site running smooth 24 hours a day.

Site Name: Aunt Clara's Dominican Cooking / La Cocina Dominicana de Ta 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.

DARKSTAR


the skin is nice but the formatting is horrible. the blocks on one side are small the resolution is set huge.

for someone on a 800 x 600 or even 1024 x 768 resolution alot of scrolling.
