    As I came up with the idea I can't do anything else but to nominate my own site (just a pity the new design I'm currently working at isn't live yet). Looks 10 times better.

    Hi guys,

    Please choose only one category as indicated in the rules:
    Reason for that is because your entries are already included into THREE (3) categories (the category of your choice, social media, and the main best website category). Adding one more would seem like overkill already ;)

    Don't worry about self promoting yourselves guys, its perfectly OK to do. As long as you have at least 30 forum posts then go for it! The more the merrier.

    I'm surprised more people are not taking advantage of this!

    I think you added the wrong link. It takes me to the site of a competitor.

    lol alright guys, we're getting a few votes now (Too bad Koen and Danny :p).

    Anyway, as Dean said, everyone is free to nominate themselves. Remember, this is just the nominations, and will not count as a vote. We'll conduct the voting once the nomination period is over. We'll send in a newsletter with the whole voting process to all members once it's out so we could get the best exposure for each and one of you.

    By the way, the Social Media Buzz prize, it all goes in your efforts on how you will promote each of your posts in our socials. Share it to your friends and family, let them like and share your post, the more you get, the better chances of winning it ;).

    Please make your nomination official and follow the nomination form:

    Would be great to see more nominations (and self nominations), as many here will not know others websites, and like @dannyisnow you may even gain a little more custom from it, which of course is a rare opportunity for non advertisers!
