I am submitting my site again. I hope this is not against the rules?

Site Name: Zerotohundred.com
URL: http://www.zerotohundred.com
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

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.

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

Webmasters
Computers
Computer Consoles
Business
Ebay
Gaming
Graphics
And More

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: Smash World Forums
URL: http://www.smashboards.com
Description: A gigantic community of Super Smash Bros. players from around the world. Find Smash Bros. tournaments and tons of tips and strategies for all the smash brothers games, including the upcoming Smash Bros. Brawl for Nintendo Wii.

Reason for Nomination:
The depth of the Super Smash Bros. video games has led to the development of a large, devoted tournament community. Smash World Forums has grown into a home for these competitive Smash Bros. players. In 2002 and 2003, the first tournaments began appearing on Smash World Forums. Many of these tournaments were held in a member's basement, and open invitations were placed on the website. Early on, some people would drive 5-6 hours to get to a location where there might only be 10 players. Now players use Smash World Forums to organize and to find tournaments from all over the country. And thanks to companies like MLGPro, which soon after began hosting large tournaments with cash prizes, there are many gamers that are now considered "professional" Smash Bros. players.

Tournaments are now held regularly all over the world, with large communities centered in the United States and Canada; north and western Europe, including The Netherlands, Sweden, and France; Australia; and Japan. Almost every tournament is organized through Smash World Forums, using our calendar and tournament rooms. Big tournaments like Melee FC6 have seen over 200 participants!

Nintendo recognized the uniqueness and importance of this community and interviewed Smash World Forums, discussing the great scope of the competitive community that Smash World helped to start. This interview appeared in Nintendo Power Issue 195 (September 2005).

Now, with the release of Nintendo Wii, a third Super Smash Bros. game called Smash Bros. Brawl is scheduled to be released in the near future.

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.

Wonderful stuff, I love the concept behind independent ratings and a very different use of the vBulletin engine too. Can't believe nobody else has seconded this.

Seconded and good luck to you.

Site Name: Substitute Teachers United
URL: http://www.substituteteachersunited.net/forum/

Description: We’re a group of substitute teachers who’ve come together to form our own online community. We share our experiences with each other and gain valuable information and advice in the process. In addition, we’re constantly providing one another with the support needed to make it through our long and stressful days in the classroom. (And believe me!... Many of us have extremely long and stressful days as subs. So long and stressful that we wonder when it’s going to end!)

STU is made up of a very diverse group of substitute teachers both male and female. We have subs of all ages, races, nationalities, and religion. Some of our members are just starting out while others have been subbing for 7 or more years and are considered “veterans” in their given profession.

Reason for Nomination: s a great community and resource. Not to mention, I worked extremely hard to make it what it is.

Can I get a second?

Description: Companion forums for the The Mego Museum (http://www.megomuseum.com) website, a decade-old spot on the web dedicated to collectors and enthusiasts of vintage 1970's Mego action figures. We were running on IkonBoard 2.2a for years and only recently upgraded to vBulletin, but have already added a lot of nice mods and have done a lot of customization to fit with our member's needs and wants. We offer several different styles, including one that almost perfectly emulates the old IkonBoard for those traditionalists among our group! We also hold an annual (real life) convention, print trading cards to promote the site, and more. We have close to a thousand members and have been adding new registrations daily since we switched to the much-more-robust vBulletin. We offer Arcade games for our members to play, a marketplace to buy, sell and trade their figures, a gallery to host images, and much more!

Reason for Nomination: We're really proud of our community and would like to show it off!

Site Name: Virtual American Airlines

URL: www.virtualaa.com/portal.php

Description: Virtual American Airlines is a site dedicated to simulating real world American Airlines operations, by using Microsoft's Flight Simulator software to allow it's members (pilots) to fly scheduled AA flights and subsequently accumulate flight hours.

Reason for Nomination: We at Virtual American Airlines strive on quality and this is clearly apparent by the way we maintain and operate our website. But what really sets us apart from the rest of the Virtual Airlines in the flightsimming community is our family-oriented environment. We have been together as a "family" since the year 2000. We originally started out as a Virtual Airline named AirPUERTORICO.

We then went through some changes and transitions, but throughout all these years, we have stayed together. I really hope you guys enjoy our website. Like I said before, we are all about quality and putting out the best that we have to offer.

Site Name: Starcraft Vanilla

URL: Starcraft Vanilla (http://www.StarcraftVanilla.com)

Description: Discussion for the up and coming Starcraft 2, will be offering downloads ranging from RPG's, to Bots on battle.net when SC2 is Released.

Reason for Nomination: A fairly new/low traffic site, offering up a place for people to get together and gossip about the release about starcraft 2. (Greatest game ever :P) I would love for this site to get some exposure since this is my first site and boy is it time consuming. But, this would be very rewarding for me, if this site was nominated. And also if not for me do it for SC2!
