Site Name: Tech555 - All the Tech Info You Need

URL: www.tech555.com (http://www.tech555.com)

Description: Technology Discussion Group - Computers | Programming | Multimedia | Internet and Software | Gaming

Reason for Nomination:
Design and Layout:-
Tech555's layout, navigation and the way of content arranging is really catchy in order to make the user get what he wants.

Content and Relevancy:-
I believe that Content is God !! Tech555, being categorized as an Educational Website is exclusively dedicated to Technology discussion and it has all the required and necessary Forum categories, it being Mobiles, Computers, Programming, Web Development, Graphics and Designing etc.

Gallery and Gaming:-
The Picture Gallery (http://www.tech555.com/gallery) and Arcade (http://www.tech555.com/forum/arcade.php) are simply an added fun to attract visitors, thus making Tech555 a home for every kind.

Keeping it Clean and Beautiful:-
Keeping colors bright, simple and soothing to eyes and mind. Thus, keeping visitors stay longer.

Its passed just 2 months since I have bought the license and have already put in so many efforts day and night in understanding vBulletin and customizing according to user's needs. However, the community is still lacking its activeness but already have over 280 members in 2 months and growing rapidly, thus proving Tech555 having a great potential. This time its a complete new design (not the darker one), definitely hoping to get nominated this time !!

Site Name: VoetbalPortaal.nl...a 'Web 2.0' forum at last!
URL: VoetbalPortaal.nl (http://www.voetbalportaal.nl/forum/)
Description: Exclusive Dutch-Turkish soccerforum. It's a niche forum actually. It's about football/soccer in Dutch, mainly by and for Turkish people... speaking Dutch. Go figure!
Reason for Nomination: Exclusive, Unique...and balls!

Why VoetbalPortaal.nl stands out of the crowd? Top 10 reasons:

1. Original and unique: the 'clean and fresh' template is fully custom and is made in sparetime. Almost every button, icon and other grafx is customized aka replaced by a famfamfam-icon.
2. Exclusive: free registration, but you're expected to fully participate. We dare to choose for quality instead of quantity!
3. Delicate balance between Web 2.0 and old-skool-forum: I wanted all the Web 2.0 goodies, my members were just happy with vBulltein default install
4. Ad-free: for logged in users, that is...
5. Dymamic headers: every (sub)forum has it's own forumheader
6. Iconized: Every category has it's own slik and distinguising icon
7. Optimal (re-)use of navbits: on forumhome and vBA, the navbar is reserved for a banner
8. SEO'd: actually only manually, without vBSEO of ZOINT SEO
9. vB-Optimized: every unused whitespace and built-in function (like forumjump) stripped
10. A 'clean and healthy' community: on regular basis we clean up our userbase. No-posters, double-accounts and pain in the asses are removed. That's why our record was just 300 users and we've kicked out a bunch of them!

Links to some pages:
Main page/vBadvanced portal (http://www.voetbalportaal.nl/)
Forumhome (http://www.voetbalportaal.nl/forum/)
Hall of Fame: the Awards page (http://www.voetbalportaal.nl/forum/awards.php)
A random topic (http://www.voetbalportaal.nl/forum/misc.php?do=lucky)

PS: The Beta in the version number is not a Web 2.0 feature; it's really in beta and it's not perfect at all...yet!

PS: The site is currently only optimized for Firefox...

Spectra Forum :: Laser Pointer Discussion


Site Name: Spectra Forum
Site URL: http://www.spectraforum.com
Short Summary: A discussion about lasers, laser pointers, and the sort.




Reason for Nominating:

This board is clear, not cluttered, and the theme is very lasery. There are thousands of helpful posts regarding the safe use of lasers and laser pointers (ones that can burn, melt, and pop balloons), and about which companies are scams, and which are good quality. Our users are very knowledgeable when it comes to the world of lasers, and anyone thinking of buying a burning green laser, or any other laser, such as blue lasers, yellow lasers, purple lasers, or anything of that sort, should consult with this forum first.


Do it Yourself Info
There are also a number of helpful DIY tutorials on how to easily make your own burning laser for cheap, that will last a long time.


Basically, this board has saved a lot of peoples' money (and retinas), and it contains a lot of useful information regarding the world of lasers and laser technology. We have also given away a few lasers in contests for free, to help people get started with their hobby. It also looks pretty awesome in my opinion. :D :o :D :o

Description:
Donation based Yorkieshire Terrier Community. Two Month old website with 421 members, almost 65,000 posts, 200 donating members, and steady growth.

Reason for Nomination:
Extremely friend and fast growing! Just celebrating our 3 month anniversary in 15 days YC has grown beyond belief. Some of the reasons I feel YC should be the Board of the Month is the extensive modding and custom content while staying true to the vBulletin feel. Some mods installed, a custom retrofitted iTrader System with phpClassifieds, custom retrofitted Awards Systems with automatic awards, custom theme and postbit, MGC Chatbox, vBulletin.org System Template Modifications, Arcade, Thank You Hack System, vBadvanced, a custom Breeder Section and Members Area, and many other smaller mods!

Description: True Christian Website, 100% Scripture Based
Reason for Nomination:

Talk Jesus is a very clean forum, no advertisements anywhere and not cluttered. It is completely organized, fast loading pages, well moderated and 100% sincere to its purpose which is: discussions of the Holy Bible, Jesus Christ (GOD) and preaching the truth as told by Scripture. There is no room to allow for personal religious/own version of GOD and the Holy Bible. It does not allow for debates, therefore refraining from being hypocritical of its sole purpose.

The forum is very friendly, honest, edifying. There are over 200+ arcade games all family friendly/kid safe as well. A lot of great features including personal journals, prayer events, hundreds of testimonies of miracles performed by GOD in people's personal encounters, complete online Bible, bible dictionary, colorful high quality Scriptural maps, a high quality live chat room that is actually stable on high number of concurrent chatters.

The forum is very active, nearly 11,000 members and on average 150 posts per day.

Description: Volconvo is an active debate forum and blog network for the discussion of political, religious and news-based topics.

Reason for Nomination: High quality community, active boards, professional design, unique and controversial topics, pertinence in current events.

Other: While many forum owners display high post counts prominently and pride themselves on the quantitative aspect of the community, I feel it's the qualitative aspect—the thoroughly researched and critically processed information—that makes Volconvo stand out. Our members are talented at what they do. That's not to say the forum is small. (This week it should surpass the 500,000 post mark.) But, at Volconvo we're about content.

Site Name: CricDownloads - All the Downloads of Cricket

URL: www.cricdownloads.com

Description: The home of all cricket lovers who love downloading high quality cricket media!

Design and Layout:-
CricDownloads layout, navigation and the way of content arranging is really catchy in order to make the user get what he wants and its really customized by me to suit forum needs. Every page has something diffrent which no forum in the world has ;) because i love uniqueness

Content and Relevancy:-
I believe that Content is everything. CricDownloads offers all the users who do not have access to TV or are at work etc to watch cricket highlights of all games, cricket videos and discuss with people from around the world...

Keeping it Clean and Beautiful:-
Keeping colors bright, simple and soothing to eyes and mind. Thus, keeping visitors stay longer and not annoying them to death.

Its passed just 1 and half months since I have bought the license and have already put in so many efforts day and night in understanding vBulletin and customizing according to user's needs. However, the community is still lacking its activeness but already have over 3450 members in 2 months and growing rapidly. I had the same site long before so have the backup of these [3450] users.. You may see really less people active because no one yet knows the site is BACK. I will let them know soon... thus proving CricDownloads having a great potential. This time its a complete new unique design definitely hoping to get nominated...

You can even login at CricDownloads and view some stuff personally..

Site Name: Ginrei Network Community Forum
URL: http://www.ginreinetwork.com/forum/
Description: Ginrei Network is a website dedicated to anime, manga and the like.
Reason for Nomination:


As far as design goes, it's 1 sexy beast. Your eyes will thank you later.
It has a lot of potential to become something huge. I FEEL IT. DO YOU?!
It doesn't run on vBAdvanced or vBSEO (absolutely no disrespect to those that do). Basically it's not the same forum you've seen time and time again.
It's not cluttered. We didn't install countless hacks that are not needed. It still runs very much like a default vBulletin installation.
Everyone (all 4 of us, yes) jokes around. It's not a board with many rules. We like to set the tone very lightly.
Time well spent? I think so.


Please vote for us!! This type of exposure will help liven up the place. There's only so much you can do with less than 10 members. LOL. Mamma mia. :(

I'm kind of late for this, but I've been nominated at one point on vB.com for my site. Since then, it's changed focus and the layout has been modified (and improved).

Site Name: Simplify Racing Development Community
URL: http://simplify.ws/
Description: A medium of communication for a team of automotive enthusiasts for modifications, autox, and regular meets.
Reason(s) for Nomination:

Completely rehauled layout for user friendliness and simplicity (Built from scratch and notepad).
Tightly integrated components from vB.org, as well as a huge collection of custom modifications.
Initial layout constructed of mostly CSS, and very fast loading (for the amount of images, and complexity of layout).
Custom skin selection not based on the stock skin system (with on-the-fly colour modification by CSS and PHP).
Member-controlled Image Rotation system (on the top left), where images are uploaded (of any size) and are converted to size and framed with the layout on-the-fly by PHP.
A truly practical and unique PM notification popup.


You really have to login (or sign up) to get a feel of how different the site is from the stock vBulletin system.

Site Name: GamersCouncil
URL: http://www.gamerscouncil.com/forums/
Description: Video gaming discussion forum. Also provides weekly news about popular topics in the gaming industry.
Reason for Nomination:

I spent hundreds of hours on making it look clean and nice. The majority of the graphics have been changed and are all custom made.

The news section uses a blog script which is linked to the forum, allowing the forum users to comment on the news in a thread that's specially made for the article. And the cheats section is basically a modified version of the skin that functions as some kind of CMS and hides some elements that make it look like a forum.

This project is like a baby to me and I spend a couple of hours on it every day. It's always fun to add a new hack and optimize it, so soon when it's active people can actually start enjoying it :)

Site name: Sinister - Gaming

Site URL: http://www.afraidyet.net and http://www.afraidyet.net/forums/

Description: Sinister has been a long time guild in the mmo scene and our website has expanded over the past 10 years accordingly. We cover all aspects of the mmo scene and focus mostly on video productions at this point. I've put countless hours of work into this site with the help of vbulletin and many great modifications that I've used and edited for my own needs. Thanks to all the contributers out there, you have saved us so much time.

Reason for Nomination: I see alot of great site designs, but not much gaming related especially when it comes to the mmo genre. Our site has grown A LOT over the past few months. Transfering close to 400 gb in bw now a month with 9.3 million unique visitors since we started this new design effort a year ago. We used phpbb for a few years and after getting hacked due an unpatched vulnerability I decided it was time to make the switch to vbulletin and haven't looked back since.

Thanks for consideration. :cool:
