This is the nomination thread for Board of the Month of August / September 2009.

Please note the BOTM Rules here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/info.php?do=botm

Let me reiterate the rules for this thread:
Only post nominations or seconds, no chatter.
All seconds are to be placed in 1 post, with a max of 3.
All seconds should include the word "second" or "+1".
All posts must be in English.
Please abide by these rules or your post will be removed.

Nominations will be accepted until the 31st of July 2009.

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:


Site Name: vBulletin.org
URL: www.vbulletin.org (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/../) - this must be clickable
Description: Official vBulletin Modifications Site
Reason for Nomination: Not Nominated. This is an example nomination.

When seconding sites, please ensure that you use the same post for the maximum of 3 allowed seconds. Any seconds not located in your first seconding post will not be counted. Please also ensure that you quote the nomination post you are seconding in your post (Use Multi-Quote Option if you are nomination multiple boards). If there is no name or URL provided then the post will be ignored when the nominations are counted.

Also, please make sure that you are seconding a forum that has already been nominated by its forum owner. Any seconds for a forum that has not been nominated yet will be counted as null and void.

Please posts only nominations or seconds, no "Thank you" posts are needed, they clutter the thread and will be deleted.

Any queries regarding the BOTM Contests should be sent via PM to King Kovifor (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?action=getinfo&username=King Kovifor) or an administrator.

Best of luck to all nominees!

Site Name: The Faceoff Boards
URL: http://faceoffboards.com/
Description: FaceoffBoards is one of the fastest growing hockey forums on the internet. With intense conversation and debates, tons of available information, and plenty of extra features, there are many advantages to FaceoffBoards that other big hockey forums haven't been able to touch yet. The site has been around since February 2008 and has had on and off periods, but we expect this offseason to be very successful and hopefully it leads to us having a very active 2009/10 NHL (and KHL, and AHL, and any hockey league) season.
Reason for Nomination: The obvious reason would be in the fact that it's my forum. However, there are other reasons. For one, the site has had many radical changes that were made possible by the good folks here at vBulletin.org, with many different modifications used to give our users the best user experience possible. I also think we have an appearance that stands out compared to other forums, and we're also very well managed. Essentially, it comes down to us having a very good community mixed with a very well set up site (thanks to the people here).

Site Name: Grace of the Valar

URL: www.GraceoftheValar.com (http://www.graceofthevalar.com/)

Description: Web site for the Grace of the Valar LOTRO Kinship (guild) on the Landroval server (please do not register just to look around).

Most of the features (below) will not be visible to non-guild members, so I apologize. Just need to take my word on it, unless I'm allowed to submit screenshots. ;)

Reason for Nomination: Our site is heavily modified from a stock vB install. In addition to our hand-ported theme, we have a rotating header image, and have custom-coded some additions to existing add-ons (obviously unreleased) to automate much of our application process and daily activities (confirmation PMs for each step of the process, helpful reminder notices, etc).

Our member list has been edited to include graphical representation of a few fields, instead of text. The Postbit has been edited to include profile information, and a link to the person's other web site accounts (we allow multiple accounts so people can have multiple members in the guild).

We have also heavily modified the Event Attendance mod to allow for profile fields to display in RSVPs, which help for certain events with gear requirements. We have also added custom Calendar fields to allow the event poster to choose which of those profile fields are displayed in the event RSVPs.

We have also edited our calendar to allow unregistered or regular "Reigstered" accounts (accounts who have not been accepted into the guild) to view the events on the monthly calendar view, but they are unable to view the details of the event.

When viewing a member profile of someone who hasn't logged in for 14 days, a red alert is shown at the top of the page to alert you to that, so you don't attempt to contact someone who might be inactive.

We have also used the profile fields to create an "AFK" system. This way our members can denote when they plan to be away from the game (LOTRO) for a certain period of time. Setting those fields also displays an alert on their profile, and also changes their RSVPs to display their away status. Our event coordinators can then avoid putting inactive people in their events!

We have also themed our EQDKP install to match our web site, and have also modified EQDKP (with massive help) to use the EPGP system (relational DKP).

Our kinship (guild) also boasts some of the best community members around (but I might be biased). HUGE kudos to our members for a relaxing, mature, and professional environment, and for constantly remembering that it's just a game and we're all there to have fun!

Site Name: The World of Necrotania - Writing Community

URL: http://www.necrotania.com

Description: We are a Writing community with a strong Fantasy and Science Fiction presence in our library. Online since 2002 we have a great group of Authors and Reviewers who contribute to our ever growing community

Reason for Nomination: Necrotania is unique in how it handles writing submissions. We use a customized bridge to connect eFiction, a fan fiction script, to vBulletin. The connection is seamless and allows data to be shared between the two scripts.

Some key points are
- Custom tabs on user profiles for Your Stories, Your Reviews, and Your Favorite stories. Each tab can be disabled via the control panel
- Streamlined navigation that ties all the related areas of the site together.
- Most recent story listed in Postbit
- Unique utilization of the Social Network features of vBulletin to offer authors and readers new ways to connect with their peers.

We are currently running with two skins. The primary is a custom design I came up with to better reflect the writing nature of the site.

The secondary, called Blue and White, is a slightly modified version of a skin downloaded here (Facebook New I believe was the name). It gives a clean look for those who do not want all the graphics. Both skins can have their width adjusted in the user control panel.


Thanks for your consideration :)

Site Name: The Laclede Forum
URL: http://www.lacledeforum.com
Description:
A site for people in the Laclede County, Missouri to congregate and come together as a community.
Reason for Nomination:
Nominated because I feel like I've worked really hard on this site. Grant it, a lot of it is from Mods that have been placed on VB.org, but I (along with some of my posters) have worked really hard to get and keep this site going, and it would be nice to see some type of reward or at least some recognition for our efforts. I know this might sound a little cheesy, but it's the truth...

Description: The Undead Vengeance Community is basically a casual gamers lounge. After a long day at work, school, or any 'ole long day, there's nothing better than sitting down and enjoying a good game. Our goal is to provide a mature and structured gaming environment without sacrificing entertainment.

Reason for Nomination: Other than the obvious reason that I am nominating it because I help run it, I am very proud of it. Hundreds of man hours have been spent developing the website. It is aesthetically appealing, easy on the eyes, and extremely navigable. It doesn't only look good, but the design is practical. We are one of the larger Steam communities on the web, but the thing that makes us special is the community. We've got one of the best, close-knit communities that make us who we are.

Site Name: Gaming Voice
URL: http://www.gamingvoice.co.uk/forums/

Description: Gaming Voice is a new UK based videogame community, dedicated to letting it's users have their say on current events and future releases in the industry.

Reason for Nomination: I retired from being a webmaster more than 2 years ago, and didn't envisage returning.. I was quite enjoying my time away from the hassle of designing, coding and running a community. A couple of months ago, I was suddenly inspired to start working on something again - and Gaming Voice is the result.

The design is purposefully minimalistic and clean, for easy navigation. However, a lot of time and love has gone into it's conception - and it contains a good mix of available modifications from vbulletin.org, and custom code by myself. With a website on the way, I have a very good feeling about things.. :)
