Nominations will be accepted until the 31st of January.

When nominating please post the site name, 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.

Any sites without a name, URL, description and reason for nomination will NOT be entered into the poll. Please ensure that your nomination is in the format:

If there is no name or URL provided then the post will be ignored when the nominations are counted.

Site Name: Zan Perrion's Natural Game Forums

URL: http://www.naturalgame.com

Description: This forum is all about creating a new discussion about dating and relationships. It's only a couple of months old, but it is growing fast.

Zan Perrion was one of the first guys in the "Seduction Community", and is one of the most respected - by both men and women. I first met him at a book signing a couple of years ago in New York, where he and Neil Strauss were signing copies of Neil's New York Times bestselling book "The Game". There was a chapter in that book on Zan. Since then, I have helped him with some of his presentations (and the forum).

Here is Zan's Philosophy for the Natural Game Forums, the reason he created it in the first place: http://www.naturalgame.com/showthread.php?t=145

Reason for Nomination: Clean, relatively unmodified forum. A good message, trying to make a difference in the world. Oh, and the whole forum has a "pirate" theme!

Reason for Nomination
The Rogue Forums (TRF) has been online for roughly 1.5 years, and has made leaps and bounds in the field of activity, as well as creativity. We've managed to create a Star Wars focused forum, while still maintaining a general feel and direction- a feat not easily accomplished.

Seconded :up:
