This is the nomination thread for Board of the Months of August & September 2012!*

*Extended an extra moth for more nominations

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


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 last day of September 2012 (Close to midnight- maybe a few hours earlier, maybe a few hours later. There is no exact time.)

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


DO NOT STRAY FROM THE ABOVE FORMAT. Save your creativity for your FORUM- this is not the place for it.

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.

NOTES:
You MUST enter the URL to your forum in the "URL:" line. DO NOT put a link with your site's name. Your entry will be rejected. Only 1 link is allowed.

You MUST put all your seconds in ONE post. If that means editing your original post to add more seconds, then DO it. We throw out seconds that are made in multiple posts.

Please post 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, BirdOPrey5, or an Administrator.

Site Name: China-Cheats (No Hacking - No Cracking)
URL: http://www.china-cheats.com
Description: International forum for Software and Web Developers
Reason for Nomination:


We are helping everyone, from people with no computers to people who never used a computer befor
1 Year & 2 Month old and A TOTALLY FREE SOURCE FORUM
Provides support for Balool which is an ADDON for worlds biggest voice chat software Paltalk Messengers
Making our own Installer for Balool, Balool is built and made by Im-Integrations.com
Only 1 year and China-Cheats is the most visited forum today, with very less members and very less content
We have the best reputation for providing the best help online for Balool & Paltalk Stuff *24 Hours online*
Growing amazingly fast last 3 month
Top Paid by GOOGLE ADSENSE (Between 1.25 to 2.00 USD DAILY)
ANTI HACKING forum - Forum Title and Motto (No Hacking - No Cracking)
Totally Spam Free forum (Maybe ones a year)
Online team which is 24 hours online, available with 20 different languages..
70 new forums plus 400 premium threads added last month
China-Cheats has a WILL and MOTIVATION to keep going everyday, and even after we were hacked 8 month ago

- 8 month ago China-Cheats was hacked! They ruined all our hard work, and thank god we were on a free-hosting company, but it really took us down! And all this because of our motto (No Hacking - No Gaming). Were still using the old vB3.8.6 version without the Level Patch 1, and the FAQ page was how they got us! They got our Database Info and then we found out about the "Patch Level 1".. We kinda lost our will and lots of content! But carried on because of the support we had from our members. And finally we secured our forum, and then we decided to use our motto as our forum TITLE, even it gave us problems, bu only to show we do not give up that easy! It has been a hard year but we have made it!
- China-Cheats have really worked hard to get a position among the best forums who provides support for worlds biggest voice-chat Paltalk Messenger, and an online team with more than 24 different languages online.. And we do all this FOR FREE!

Thank you very much...

Description: Reef Aquarium Community
Reason for Nomination: Yet to receive a 2nd after months of self-nominations, I will once again throw my site into the mix. CaptiveReefs is an active forum bustling with great information to help with setting up and maintaining reef aquariums. CaptiveReefs design has been customized to encourage member activity and visitor retention. In short, I don't believe there is another forum like CaptiveReefs on the www.

Description: Laptop, netbook and tablet PC discussion forums
Reason for Nomination:


Used PHPBB until very recently, then converted to vBulletin a few months ago on this new domain. It's a fresh relaunch on VB :D.
We're a friendly forum and a welcoming bunch!
Lots of customisation to get sidebars and templates to be even more helpful to members.
We nominated our forums so that we can hopefully come in with a chance of getting some exposure for the newly upgraded forums - moving to a new domain and starting afresh on VB hit our traffic, but we're growing again slowly :D.
