This is the nomination thread for Board of the Month of December 2010.

Please note the BOTM Rules here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/info.php?do=botm (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 30th of November 2010 (close to midnight... close means +/- HOURS. YES, I WILL CLOSE AND GET TO IT AS "SOON" AS I CAN (Like when they have to type that code in the tv show "LOST" this is some serious stuff here!!!)

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:


Originally Posted by Sample Nomination

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.

IMPORTANT inqueries regarding the BOTM Contests should be sent via PM to Roms or an Administrator.

Best of luck to all nominees! :D

Site Name: PNE-Online

URL: http://www.pne-online.net

Description: A forum for discussion of Preston North End Football Club and the City of Preston (UK).

Reason for Nomination: PNE-Online has been established as an advertisement free, community funded forum for over six years and recently reached the one million post mark. After over a year of development we recently upgraded to VBulletin 4 and our new forum includes a fully customised CSS designed style with an abundance of unique imagery and a host of custom modifications created by ourselves such as an optional swear filter, RSS parser, prediction league, and hidden 'ignored user' quotes coupled with a selection of plug-ins from VBulletin.org such as the VSa ChatBox.

It would make all of our hard work and effort worthwhile if we could be awarded the VBulletin.org Board of the Month as the highest accolade for a VBulletin forum.

The site also uses two different"Advanced User Statistics" - one for daily news updates (bottom) and one for new posts. All threads have FB Share and Tweets embedded in the first post. The site is about 3 years old. Enjoy!!

Description: a place where sport is important in general but primarily Table Tennis, which we along with millions of other people across the globe love to participate in. The mission of the site is to promote the sport to it's fullest so that all connected to it have the best experience possible. We also should remember there are many people, families and clubs who also have other reasons to like the sport so much, some just to keep fit or even as some dedicated parents do, travel far and wide just to give their children and indeed others the best chance of succeeding in the sport. Whatever your ideas and opinions are we have it covered as you will see........

Reason for Nomination: The only site of its kind with every section of information dedicated to the sport and people who are involved in and around it, with development and forward thinking as priority.

I built the site a few years ago and have spent many hours making it worthy of any vote or community spirit.
