    Asendin, let me make something clear. I pointed it out because I believe everyone should have a chance at this. Really I'm sure you don't want to hear my opinions on this whole thing anyway, but if you look back at the threads you will find that besides nominating and seconding and voting for other peoples sites I have never had any other part in these. I really think people should be nominated, not nominate themselves, there are enough great sites out there that people could take notice of. However since part of this is getting smaller boards exposure, the current system works. However it only works if the rules as they are set, are met. There are rules there for a reason. Scott put them up, and most folks respect them.

    IMHO this month was off because:

    A) Jakeman asking someone to nominate macsubculture was odd, but not covered in the rules I guess since technically he didnt nominate himself.

    B) Sinecure nominating ixga two months in a row. Sure he doesn't own it but he did the design. This I think is practically the same for the limits of this contest. (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...#postid=235256) However since there is no real rule against it I suppose it stands too.

    C) You nominating your board every month save January. You did nominate your board. I saw that, Scott saw that. Now its gone. However you do have a rather odd post at the halfway point of that thread asking for a second for your board (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...#postid=235511) when as far as I can see it wasn't nominated. That seems very strange to me.

    Let me also take a quick opportunity to address two things that were said to me here and on PMs. My mentioning this has nothing to do with not liking the people who did these things, I have had opportunity to talk with sinecure and jakeman on occasion and in fact keep a cream pie in the fridge in case jakeman takes a stop by with his mac propaganda.

    Nor does it have anything to do with jealousy. TalkLoud gets enough exposure without this. I have been nominated twice, neither of which were started by me, I have a thread here at vbulletin that was put up because someone likes the look of my site and have (according to numbers, Im not sure tubedoggs stars isnt more popular ) the most installed hack at vbulletin.org. I'm actually at the upper end of my bandwidth and looking for ways to bring it down. The recognition from your peers is great, but I would never stoop to a low like clipping off others legs to try to get it. I get it by working hard on my site. The was more towards sin and uosaint saying whos the owner and whatnot.

    I do like your board, and would gladly nominate or second it next month, I do believe it should be in the running. Just not this month.

    I hope nobody takes this the wrong way. If someone does please keep in mind I was influenced by the other judges and am really a very impressionable person. It's not my fault.

    I'm debating if I should post this or not..

    Hello Asendin,

    Sorry your knocked out but look at it this way. You can nominate yourself next month. Or should we consider your nomination this month as a nomination but disallow it since you broke the rules meaning you can't nominate yourself next month too?

    ......................nah.

    Just relax. You'll get your chance.

    Scott
    i could care less , i can see this is fixed anyway. very lame i didnt nominate myself. end of story, its a popularity contest between a bunch of teens. this is BS

    That would I believe disqualify these boards

    5. http://www.ixga.com/

    Since they both nominated themselves in february? I could be wrong I suppose.


    I'm the owner of www.ixga.com

    I don't think I've nominated my site before probably because I don't have the confident in winning, but the designers felt it's not that bad and others nominated it.


    Thanks.
