Talking [BOTM October 2007] Nomination Thread

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

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

Nominations will be accepted until the 30th of September. Also, please note, that the current voting thread for BOTM September will remain open as well until the 30th of September as well.

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:

Quote:

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!
-Roms

Site Name: Stirrdup - Uncensored Social News and Social Bookmarking
URL: http://www.stirrdup.com

Description: Social news site 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.

Site Name:
Legion of Angels

URL:

www.legionofangels.net

Description:

Christian website that focuses on fellowship, discussion of the religion and each individual churches approach to it, as well as offering suffering & support to all of life's myriad of problems. General forums as well for the non-religious and/or people who are interested in other things.

Reason for Nomination:
The site has a positive purpose of helping people with some of the toughest issues you face in life.

Graphic Design was meant to try and keep the forum looking like a vB but at the same time all custom skins. Skins were made solely by the owners of the site and not by companies that sell skins. Uses banners from a professional illustrator, donated to this site. Half of the skins are semi-transparent which is fairly uncommon and we also have a Flash Status Display Code showcasing staff members that are currently online.

Still a young website with fairly good activity mainly coming from a very dedicated group of members and staff who visit regularly.

Note: You should only view the "sky" skins in Firefox browser as IE will not show transparent png files and it will scroll slowly.
