Welcome to the third semi-annual UBBDev Content Rulez Contest - a contest designed to give import to what matters most in any website - engaging content.
This contest focuses on the Content
of your site. Basically, we want you to provide us with examples that you think best represent your forums. To enter into the contest, you must provide us with the following:
- A brief description of what your forums is all about. It's purpose, the type of users you attract, and how long the community has been together.
- Links to three individual threads that you feel best exemplify your board, at least one of these threads must be at least 1 month old.
Entries must be submitted prior to Wedesday, August 15th, 11:59pm CST
, after which time we'll lock up this thread and start judging.
Members are welcome to enter up to 2 sites. Each entry will be evaluted by UBBDev's members, who will vote on which site they feel best serves its audience. A poll will be done with votes to determine the winner. There will be a grand prize winner and a runner-up.Note: that we will not be voting on which threads we like best, but the ones that we feel best represent the purpose of your forums and make a positive contribution to your community.
Now for the fine print:
- Eligible entries can be any legal full-release UBB.classic or UBB.threads. This includes older version 5.x and 6.x boards!!! If you have a pirated board...don't bother entering.
- Forum must have been established at least three months ago
- Any warez, porno or warez/porn related site, or sites with links, banners, pop-ups to any warez or pornographic sites need not apply. We may exclude any other site that we deem to be inappropriate or contains inappropriate content, or content deemed to be inappropriate...you get the point.
- Sites that illegally hide/remove/modify the Groupee copyright
- Links to threads which contain excessive profanity or vulgar language will be removed. If your site is best represented by "immaturity" then this is probably not the contest for you.
Entries can also be disqualified for any other reason at our discretion, with or without notice to the entrant.
The winners will have their site(s) featured in an upcoming U-Zine spotlight, will receive some primo free advertising with a link in our sidebar, will receive a nifty Custom Status indicating that you are the King/Queen of Content, and a spiffy Certificate to proudly display on your site. The Grand Prize winner will also receive a complimentary license for the ultimate software any hardcore forum modifier would need - Scooter Software's Beyond Compare AAAaaannd... a complimentary copy of Gizmo's premium paid sitemap script!!!
