    In less than a year, we generated over 22,000 members on our site, and the community is getting stronger by the day.
    I'll second this. Good use of graphics, fast loading, active community.

If this isn't a full fledged community (and from the appearances it looks like and Advertisement) then it should be disqualified. Sorry but you should not only fit within the rules but the spirit of the competition.
                The rules clearly state that a good board is "whatever makes you happy."

                    An empty board that is clearly using a template for sale and does not even have customized graphics is not one to make me happy.

                      It's been more than a year, and that winning was for PixelJunction v2. They're on to v3 now.

                        What do you mean does not even have customized graphics? The entire board is customized. Look again, maybe you missed it the first time:

                        http://www.techskins.com/forums

                        Also Wayne, the forums at Techskins are not in and of themselves an advertisement at all, read the board titles and descriptions, they will be forums for providing support and community to Techskins clients, as well as a place for us to gather feedback from our clients and allow users in the community to show off how they've implemented/customized a Techskins product or offer advice to other users. Not unlike these very forums...

                          I believe Wayne was referring to how generic the design is once a few people start using it.

                          There are only three small images where the site's name can be customized and placed on the template without undergoing heavy changes. Once three or four sites start using that template, where's the originality?

                            I figure a fifth 'second' for vbulletin.org probably isn't needed . . .


                            . . . so I would like to nominate The One Boards - a Lord of the Rings Message Board. They have a great staff, nice designs, and of course all things Tolkien. Not to mention catering to fans from those wanting good discussion on Tolkien's work, but to those fans wanting more to "play" tolkien's work (like rpg's, games, etc.)

                            So ... yeah. The One.

                              Well, originality is in the creation of the style itself. Even if 100000 people use it, the style had to come from somewhere. From the feedback I've gotten (and the many sales) people seem to really be impressed with this skin. So I figured I'd nominate it to see how it would do.

                              However, if the fact that this skin has been sold to many people is no longer an "exclusive" design is going to hinder it in this competition, than so be it. I'll have to wait until my latest custom skin is done and installed in an active forum community
