[October/November 2008] BOTM Nomination Thread

This is the nomination thread for Board of the Month of October/November 2008.

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

Nominations will be accepted until the 30th of September 2008.

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:
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 Danny.VBT.

Best of luck to all nominees!

Reason for Nomination: RUL has an amazing friendly community. On the 26th it will be our 1 year anniversary so there will be contests, auctions, and more. Over the 1 quick year RUL has gained interest and respect from really high up companies such as Ubisoft, Microsoft, and Bungie. I'd love to see how people here take the site!

URL: http://badgirljammieclub.com/

Description: The Bad Girl Jammie Club (BGJC) is an active, drama-free, community-based website, store, and forum dedicated to those brave souls who prefer to stay in their pajamas all day long, drinking coffee, while making new friends, relaxing, and having fun! **Be active in our community, and get promoted to enjoy the many benefits of being a Bad Girl/Bad Boy!** **NEW FORUMS!!**

Reason for Nomination: The Bad Girl Jammie Club is a "drama-free" community, a fact which the staff and members are very proud of, and have every intention of keeping as such. Because of copyright laws, the BGJC is a not-for-profit website, and all profits on items in the store, a benefit to our users, will go to charity. We are currently talking to the several foundations to see who will be the recipient of the funds. **NEW Members every day! Join in the fun!**

Description: TripleChat has just recently popped into the scene of Gaming sites around the net but unlike others, this site is a bit different. I strive for User Happiness, let me explain. See, when you join this site and its forums, you automatically become part of the site. Your input does not go unnoticed! Everything you say is read over by me or my amazing staff on these forums. So unlike other sites, we improve when you asking to improve. If you want to chat about gaming, then the odds are that we will have a chat about gaming in 24 minutes or less. If you want a cookie, we will laugh a little and tell you to go find a phone book and order a cookie. But that is my point, we will help you!

It isn’t such a matter of great news sources…ok it is a bit, but the fact is we are a great community here to intrigued you and let you in on some insight in the gaming world. Forget all thoughts of huge gaming sites where one comment you make may become a huge flame war. Instead, hang out here with the little big guy.

Another great thing about TripleChat is our Bigger sister site, TripleTags.com. This site has been nothing but our support throughout the launch and even up till now. SectionZ and his team have done a great job in helping and even linking to our site and forums and without them, this site would not be here. So if you ever see or talk to them, thank them!

Reason for Nomination: TripleChat's reason for nomination is simple, the members on the forum have gave me nothing but pats on the back. I know I shouldn't brag but it is hard to when they have been my driving force for this website! Graphics, features, videos, downloads, gaming news, and some random things are the handful of things that I offer and I am always ready to add another word to that list. I am always working on improvements and small edits to the forum to allow for better flow.

I built this site and I have never been happier!

Thanks, EC
