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 2011 (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:

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.

Site name: Aegis7 Forums -- The Dead Space Network
URL: http://forums.aegis7.com

Description: Aegis7 is a Dead Space Community Site -- Run by Fans, for Fans.
Reason for Nomination: I've always loved vBulletin and when I bought a license to migrate our SMF Users, I said to myself "I need to do something special with this". I've already had the bar set high from my SMF customizations and I wanted to impress.

Thus the "Aegis7 Template" was born and designed in a unique way that still holds true to the vBulletin design but looks so Dead Space-y, it's getting mentions from the Dead Space team itself.

The unique feature is the ability to use the "Unitology" font in posts, also of my design. Which translates everything into Markings that is used throughout the game. The whole site can also be translated to this very font (see here: http://forums.aegis7.com/?&styleid=4).

Site Name: Not606.com

URL: http://www.not606.com

Description: UK based sports forum run as a replacement to the official BBC site which is due to close this month (budget cuts).

Reason for Nomination: One of the most attractive VB4 styles I've seen (modified from another user's posted on here). With some unique coding to give several team forums unique backgrounds such as http://www.not606.com/forumdisplay.php/5-Celtic and http://www.not606.com/forumdisplay.php/11-Arsenal which makes the fans of the individual teams/sports feel much more at home.

Site Name:
Student Creche


URL:
http://www.StudentCreche.co.uk


Description:
Formed in March 2011, the Student Creche is a student forum for GCSE, A Level and University students to discuss matters pertaining to student life, university and career options. The site is also a major resource-bank for students to access revision notes, revision videos, past papers and homework-help for FREE.


Reason for Nomination:
The Student Creche is one of the fastest growing on-line student communities today. At a time when the British Education system is facing huge cuts, students need to unite and not drown into a pool of fear and disillusion. Thus, leaping from 14 millionth most-popular website in the world to 300 thousandth most-popular website in the world (according to Alexa) and having an average of 500 people on at any one time proves that a website like the Student Creche is in high demand.

Site Name: FemaleFitnessForum.com, or F3
URL: www.femalefitnessforum.com (http://www.femalefitnessforum.com)

Description: A community devoted to women's health and fitness. The site is about sharing knowledge, learning from, being supportive of, and inspired by, each other. It is not exclusive to women, but it is largely about women. Note that there are two sections of the forum that are only viewable to members (membership is free). One is a journals section where people share themselves, so the members requested a bit of privacy; the other is a "members only/adult content" section, but not in the typical sense. That is, it's not porn or sex or anything like that; it's just a section where people can swear in their posts, and be more direct than they can be elsewhere. The site has the "enter at your own risk" qualifier so that people who don't care for that stuff (like myself really) don't have to stumble across it, but those who do need to vent now and then can do so. If that qualifies as "adult content" in regard to contest regs, then please pull my nomination. I just wanted to be open about that.

Reason for Nomination: This site is exceptional because it has been open for just over 1 week and already has a great following of amazing people. 9 days in and already 168 members, many of whom came over from another forum (that announced it was closing), and over 1200 posts. Part of the growth success, I think, is that I give them post credit for their post counts from the old forum (which is why some people have 20,000+ posts already). The forum is also exceptional because of the "be nice" rule I have set up. People are free to discuss and disagree, but they must do so with respect and manners. So far, I have only had to ask one user to edit a post - 1 out of 1200 - which suggests to me that people are happy with the "be nice" rule. Lastly, it is a forum about the members. The members have a voice, both in terms of recommending changes, and even to the logo design contest that I am running. The members will choose how the foum looks. From a design perspective, it is the opposite of fancy, so F3 will win no nominations for that! But from a "this feel's like home" perspective, I am blown away at how well the members have built it. This is my first forum.
