[BOTM August 2007] Nomination Thread

This is the nomination thread for Board of the Month August.

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

Nominations will be accepted until the 31st of July. Also, please note, that the current voting thread for BOTM July will remain open as well until the 31st of July.

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 include the site name or URL for the site you are seconding in your post. 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.

Any queries regarding the BOTM Contests should be sent via PM to Danny.VBT.

Best of luck to all nominees!

Site Name: Virtual American Airlines

URL
: www.virtualaa.com/portal.php

Description: Virtual American Airlines is a site dedicated to simulating real world American Airlines operations, by using Microsoft's Flight Simulator software to allow it's members (pilots) to fly scheduled AA flights and subsequently accumulate flight hours.

Reason for Nomination: We at Virtual American Airlines strive on quality and this is clearly apparent by the way we maintain and operate our website. But what really sets us apart from the rest of the Virtual Airlines in the flightsimming community is our family-oriented environment. We have been together as a "family" since the year 2000. We originally started out as a Virtual Airline named AirPUERTORICO.

We then went through some changes and transitions, but throughout all these years, we have stayed together. I really hope you guys enjoy our website. Like I said before, we are all about quality and putting out the best that we have to offer.

Site Name: Starcraft Vanilla

URL: Starcraft Vanilla

Description: Discussion for the up and coming Starcraft 2, will be offering downloads ranging from RPG's, to Bots on battle.net when SC2 is Released.

Reason for Nomination:
A fairly new/low traffic site, offering up a place for people to get together and gossip about the release about starcraft 2. (Greatest game ever :P) I would love for this site to get some exposure since this is my first site and boy is it time consuming. But, this would be very rewarding for me, if this site was nominated. And also if not for me do it for SC2!

Site Name: Stirrdup
URL: http://www.stirrdup.com

Description: Social news site similiar to Digg and Reddit, but built upon the idea that the content that is the most interesting isn't necessarily the same as what everyone agrees with. Stories gain points through users doing what they would normally do while using a site (clicking links and leaving comments) and the ones that gain the most interest are promoted to the main page. If they continue to hold interest, they will stay higher on the page until the time weighted system slowly moves them down to allow more fresh content in. This fixes the "bury brigade" censorship that plagues Digg and Reddit.

Reason for Nomination: The entire site is implemented using vbulletin plugins. Not a single file change. Really shows the flexibility of the system.

Lightbulb The Mego Museum

Site Name: The Mego Museum
URL: http://megomuseum.com/community

Description: Companion forums for the The Mego Museum website, a decade-old spot on the web dedicated to collectors and enthusiasts of vintage 1970's Mego action figures. We were running on IkonBoard 2.2a for years and only recently upgraded to vBulletin, but have already added a lot of nice mods and have done a lot of customization to fit with our member's needs and wants. We offer several different styles, including one that almost perfectly emulates the old IkonBoard for those traditionalists among our group! We also hold an annual (real life) convention, print trading cards to promote the site, and more. We have close to a thousand members and have been adding new registrations daily since we switched to the much-more-robust vBulletin. We offer Arcade games for our members to play, a marketplace to buy, sell and trade their figures, a gallery to host images, and much more!

Reason for Nomination: We're really proud of our community and would like to show it off!

GotTwinz is more than a message board, it quickly becomes an internet family to those who post there. There is also a yearly meeting held, last year was NYC, this year was Chicago and next year is Las Vegas.

Reason for Nomination: GotTwinz has come a long way and we are improving the site on a daily basis.

Site Name: TalkArizona.com - Arizona News Talk and Opinion Discussion Forums

URL: http://www.talkarizona.com/forums/

Description: This is a vBulletin based discussion forum for current events, political, religious, and family issues for the people of Arizona.

Reason for Nomination: While this site is fairly new, the community isn't. This is a new domain and software (impexed from SMF) upgrade from the previous domain havasutalk.com. This community has pulled together resources, time, and money (all on it's own) to improve it's 'real life' community by restoring a landmark flag in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The community is also a very close community of people that talk about some very sensitive topics such as religion and politics, the very areas where other forums refuse to go. The board runs a very basic custom skin with a ton of commercial and free add-ons including photopost pro, vbclassifieds, vbAdvanced (vbalinks too!), zoints, hot-or-not, vbSeo, and many more.

This domain is still new and I have just started marketing it via flyers, ads, and more. There is much work to do, but I would like to recognize this community not only for the software used, but for the people of the forum.
