also supporting vbhackers.com, they do have one of the biggest assets around the net: the community enjoys each other, learns from and help out each other

How can it not be Danny? He and Ntfu2 decide who the final 5 nominees are? Give me a break.

Wouldn't it be fair if the top 5 nomies got into the poll, or is that how it is?

Yup, that's how it is.

All seconded nominations will get a number. Then with those numbers we will see who was the most seconded and then we will sort them in the poll for you guys to vote.

@Princeton & Danny.VBT: I respect your thoughts on the matter but I fully disagree. It's not about the end result but the entire process. The nomination of your own site alone is not the conflict of interest; deciding which boards go through the voting process, with your board as a contender, is.

If The Chief's board is in contention to go through the voting process two things will happen (if he chooses to participate at this stage of the contest): 1) He will value his board over another or 2) He will under-value is board and push for another. How can this not be a conflict of interest?

My point is not to discredit The Chief or Ntfu2. They may very well be honest people. I'm not down-playing the contest either as I believed in it from the onset. I should have added more input when I was approached to help out but I did not realize that this contest would get off the ground as fast as it did. Too soon? Only time will tell. While vB.org's BOTM is in the early stages I'd like to see that this matter is looked at more in-depth in the future for the legitimacy of the contest.

If anything, I'll continue this discussion (if warranted) in the Feedback forum. Again, good luck to everyone who has entered.

I would like to participate in this too, i think it is a great idea.

My site is dedicated to All year's of mustangs @ www.insanemustangs.com

We have a little bit of everything you would want to know about owning a mustang like: Mustang History, How to article's, Ride of the month, Ride of the year, timeslip database, 3 different pic gallery's, arcade system, Automotive new's around the world, Classified's, Calculator's for the automotive enthusiast's, and a whole lot more.

I opened up the site the best i could permission wise. There are still alot of area's within the site that aren't viewable to the public. When you are on my main page of the site and you go inside the forum's, if you want to get back to the main page, please click on the insanemustangs banner at the top of the page.
I sure hope i did this right as far as nominating my site. I have alot of work into it and it has only been getting better as time move's on.

Thanks, doug (hotwheels)

I throw my nomination in for vbhackers.com

I am new to the site, but already see the how great a resource it has become. Friendly folks and staff don't hurt either.

As I posted on the other thread I just dont have confidence the best board will win. This isn't against the staff but just the community here. Maybe I am wrong
