June / July BotM Nominations

This is the nomination thread for Board of the Month of June / July 2009.

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

Nominations will be accepted until the 31st of July 2009.

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: www.vbulletin.org - this must be clickable
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 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.

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 King Kovifor or an administrator.

Best of luck to all nominees!

I would like to once again nominate my forum...

Site Name: 8WayRun
URL: http://www.8wayrun.com/
Description: Soulcalibur (Soul Calibur) for the hardcore enthusiast! A Tournament Competitive Community for the Soul Calibur series. 8WR is the home for the English speaking competitive community for this popular fighting game. With members all around the world; gamers get together to share ideas, strategy and good ole' competition. We are also the forefront of the Soulcalibur IV National Tournament series and supply event planning tools to tournament organizers.

Reason for Nomination:
  • Fully skinned interface (multiple skins available). Each skin has custom header images; when you first visit the site, your header image will be randomly selected based on a character within the game. When you visit any character specific forum; the header image will be forced into the header image for that specific character. If you go to the Talim forum, Talim will be in the header; If you go to the Cassandra forum, Cassandra will be in the header, etc... With an account, you can even bypass the random selection and decide which character you wish to show by default.
  • In depth video directory. I am the author of the Video Directory Remixed mod; so you can pretty much guarantee that I make use of it. The video section has videos from tons of players, including match videos for money matches, casual matches and even tournament matches. Some players have even uploaded combo and training videos.
  • Worldwide ranking ladder for players who attend sanctioned offline tournaments. Players are ranked based on their best performances, which are calculated from the number of attendees and the percieved weight value of the tournament.
  • Weekly Online Ranking Battles. While the majority of the community cares little for online matches (we are a serious community, and online battles is to say "less than serious"); we still offer weekly tournaments through the online networks of Xbox Live and the Playstation Network. Players can also challenge other players; as well as TEAMS, to ladder matches to improve their rank.
  • In depth move list WIKI. While the Wiki is still incomplete (since the competitive community gets ZERO support from the developers at Namco Bandai); all the information in the wiki is being discovered and implemented by the users. So each day, new information gets added to the wiki and soon it will be a central information cache for frame data and move lists.
  • Event Forum with RSVP.
  • Java based chatroom.
  • Arcade with 20 games.

Reason for nomination:

As with hundreds of other hardened Vbulletin users, we have tweaked, modded hacked and revamped our forum to what it is today. All of my team work extremely hard behind the scenes.
We have dedicated moderators, who actually engage in running their own forums, and have a partcular area of expertise, be that News section, Entertainment, and such things as Events and Gambling.

Its a fun site, and what we get from the Vb community we try and give back equally, to strengthen our relationships with other Forum owners, coders and members.

Thankyou.

Site Name: Blues Brothers Central (The Soul Food Cafe Forum)
URL: http://www.bluesbrotherscentral.com/forum/
Description: The forum for Blues Brothers Central, based on the Soul Food Cafe in the Blues Brothers Movie
Reason for Nomination: The forum has a heavily customized theme (created by myself), with original artwork/graphics. It completely fits in with the topic of the site ("The Blues Brothers"), and it's instantly recognizable by fans.

The forum uses vBSEO to boost loading speed, it gets a lot of traffic from Google searches looking for information from the movie. It's important that those people can get the information they need without being forced to register, or wait for a slow page covered in advertising to load.

It has customized icons for each forum, as well as a Games Arcade and Chatroom ("Bob's Country Bunker"). The forum is well moderated and maintained, and there has always been a great sense of community amongst the members.

The advertising is relatively low, and much of it only displays to unregistered members.

There's still plenty of work to be done, the main website is 95% rebuilt (from scratch) and will integrate much closer with the forum. The last 5 threads will be displayed on the homepage, and related threads will display on other pages throughout the site (ie Dan Aykroyd's page will show the last 5 threads in the Dan Aykroyd forum, and so on).
