Poetry, Essays, Shortstories, Creative Non-fiction, Book Reviews & more. JPiC Forum For Writers: Celebrating Diversity With The Typed Word ----> THE online spot to share in creative writing and love for all of literature.

Reason for Nomination:
We've been online for some 8 or 9 months and have amassed a medium-sized audience (close to 400 Members) of talented writers from all over the world. Our Members are extremely loyal to JPiC as well --- a little over 70% active Members...

JPiC has most recently completed the upgrade from vB 3.5.4 to 3.6.4 and has a nice new style from GFXstyles.com with customization by yours truly. We have some lovely modifications added to our Forum, including a nice layout in the "What's Going On?" box - AND hope to soon have a Member Blogs system online.

So judge for yourself and hopefully we'll be added to the April voting

Jacquii.

Site Name: The World of Nectotania

URL: http://www.necrotania.com

Description: Fantasy and Science Fiction writing community

Reason for Nomination: Necrotania has been active since 2002 in one form or another. Back then it was just a series of HTML files, a place to post my own stories. Since then it has evolved through 4 forum scripts (Ikonboard, IPB 1.3, SMF, and vBulletin) and 3 story archive scripts (Storyline, A custom software, eFiction).

Probably the most notable item to consider is the custom link between the story archive script and the forum. This not only provides for a single sign-in, but allows the current forum skin to be shared with the story archive..providing a consistent look and navigation for the whole site.

Both skins were developed by the great people over at http://www.gfxstyles,com

Thanks

Reason for Nomination: This site has come a long way since I first started it in May of 2004. The design of the site is completely custom done, there is great custom content in the form of media reviews by our community, and the memberbase is active and continually growing. I feel that it deserves to be listed in vBorg's poll for BotM, so if you agree please second this.

Description: Largest fansite for the band Zao.

Reason for Nomination: Very customized layout. Most of the major pages used in vBulletin have been re-done in tableless css (forumhome, postbits, user profiles, and more) and should be functioning across all browsers too. Along with unique features, the style is unique as well -- It really doesn't look like a standard/typical forum by any means. Plus, it would make a cool birthday present to win one of these contests for once.

Since Azh nom'd us above, Seconded:

Site Name: STOnet

URL: www.startrek-online.net/messageboard

Description: Fan site for upcoming MMORPG, 'Star Trek: Online'

Reason for Nomination: I think STOnet is at a stage now that we're not going to be making any massive alterations for some time, so I thought I'd throw it in. We use quite a customised style and board now, though many of the vB.org plugins I use are backend/administrative. Some nice touches we've done include the random sidebar, which displays different info on every refresh, full IRC integration through a vBa page and a custom mod for searching posts by usergroup (DevTracker, which then got released here!)
