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 May 2010.

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:

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.

Description: Freelance web design resources and talk
Reason for Nomination: This is a heavily customised vBulletin theme, It is a 4.0.2 theme and you don't see this version modified this heavily.

Let me be the first to second FreelanceFirst.com --- That design is absolutely phenomenal = money well-spent! Obviously it's the most unique vBulletin 4.x skin that I have seen to date! There's a few small issues that need to be tidied up though (ie the navbar links, the sponsors links, etc...)

But whoever designed that should be fantastically proud! It's definitely a showpiece. So ==> Congrats on that and good luck with the site ;)

Jacquii.

Custom feedback system.
Completely custom Donator system with access to a shoutbox, color coded user titles (not usernames), a donator icon that displays on both the threadbit and postbit, and is an ad-free setup!
Custom association system with something called Trust Who. A user registers, and if he or she is a Trust Who member, they just enter their e-mail address. From there, we do a pull from Trust Who's API and find out if the user is truly verified. Verified users are shown by a black/white Trust Who logo image in the threadbit and postbit.
Completely custom style that is very easy on the eyes and allows for many consecutive hours of viewing.
