~ April ~ RDS BotM Smackdown

The Weekly Winners Competition for Best Board Discovery Of The Month!


The Runboard Weekly contenders for April total nine entries for this month. All of these boards exhibit either great designs or popularity and their owners should be very proud of what they have accomplished. But of course in any competition there can only be one winner so good luck to everyone.

Notice that this part of the RDS is no longer a poll. We do value your input and positive comments on which board should win though and yes, comments do make a difference on who wins. Each positive comment equals a vote and you may make 2 positive comments but they need to be 24 hours apart.

The following link has the Contest Rules.

The top Runboard Weekly Discoveries by your votes were:
01. Whoosh!
02. The UFO
03. Foro Asociación 4X4 Extremo Costa Rica
04. The Lost Board Refugees
05. The Collectors
06. BJ's Diet Kitchen
07. Temple of Illusia
08. TDTSC RMS Titanic Forum
09. The Dudes Abode


NOTE: You do have to be a member of this board to comment so if you are not a member just make a post on this board. Your post will not only grant you membership here but can also be used by you to give reasons why you think a board should win. THEN you can make another comment for any other board of your choice (even the same one you first posted about) 24 hours later.

Choose carefully, in this round you can make two comments which count directly towards which board wins. Comments should be separated by at least 24 hours for the staff to count them as valid for the purposed of the Smackdown...

The Closing date for the April BOTM is May 7, 2014 so don't delay, Get your best campaign comments posted today emoticon--Look here to see the NEW RDS RULES.

Re:


The Dudes Abode is a witty, charming place dedicated to the memory of a 1998 movie. None of the competing boards can claim this.

Re:


This second positive comment for The Dudes Abode is being made to count directly toward which board wins. Which, I hope, will be The Dudes Aobde.

Re:


Positive comments must be separated by 24 hours. This second post will not count, but if you come back in 24 hours and make another positive post it will count toward your win.

The purpose of the positive posts divided by 24 hours is to advertise your board and to advertise throughout the thread.

Re: ~ April ~ RDS BotM Smackdown


Temple of Illusia, is run by an incredibly talented woman, who knows how to speak "Captain Dummy Talk" (that was for any Browncoats out there) to those of us who need to learn, but just can't seem to. Unless we go there....then we can just GET IT!
Awesome board, awesome human being. ♥

Re:


I really like at a minimum 4 of the boards that are running, but I can only give kudos to 2 of them in this contest so I am going to choose the 2 boards who are always nice to me in contests.

The first board is The Dudes Abode. Every time I go there they are nice to me and fun. I think this is a very friendly place to post. I am giving them my first vote.


I will speak of the second one tomorrow.

Re: ~ April ~ RDS BotM Smackdown


I am an active member of The Dudes Abode.

Our topics cover ....whatever you feel like talking about. We are dedicated to one particular movie "The Big Lebowski" however our in depth discussions of this movie ended some time ago. We have managed to stick together through 8+ years having migrated from a now defunct board TheDudesHouse.com.

We are in search of anyone that would like to participate, and actively engage in dialogue about Food, Sports, Beer, Politics, our lives the real world and how it all comes together to form this little thing called our beach community/the world.

Its a place where you can post almost anything you want and receive honest opinions generated by people that, if you meet them on the outside world, you would respect. emoticon

Goodluck to all involved.

Re:


Interesting new voting method, Rick. My first comment goes to Temple of Illusia. I seem to be on the same wavelength as the board owner there and it's always interesting, fun and often, educational. She's very smart, analytical, respectful and fair in all conversations. She really knows her way around Runboard and is able to help out with technical questions about board operations, layout, and design. She's a valuable resource.

Re: ~ April ~ RDS BotM Smackdown


My vote goes to Whoosh! Whoosh is owned by Kym Taborn. It goes with her Whoosh.org website. 'Whoosh!' is the sound that Xena's Chakram makes as it zings through the air. The Whoosh! forum took in OxyXena refugees who were tossed aside when Oxygen.com shut down it's forums. I started out as a Board Mod, then became a Global Mod, then a co-Admin ... and when Lesa came to Runboard, I became head-Admin. I still think of myself as co-Admin though.

On The Collectors forum we are all polite and productive. We have a mission. We work in unison for a common goal: to understand and procure the objects.

Re: ~ April ~ RDS BotM Smackdown


Some of us Collectors have spent YEARS researching to find out exactly what an Object is and it's make and model.


truly dedicated we are.

The other board that is always nice to me when I come by, even though they do not know me, is The Collectors. They seem like a very friendly group of people and I would recommend their board.

Re: ~ April ~ RDS BotM Smackdown


Thank you, Queeny and Skokey. I appreciate your support, and think you're both pretty great, too. emoticon I hope people will come visit Illusia and consider joining, but this vote goes to Whoosh.

If it weren't for Whoosh and its owner, Joxcenia, it's very possible that I might not be doing what I do here at Runboard today.

The first Whoosh message board was created in 2011, and its creator (Kym) took me up on my offer to run it for her. I had barely any experience at the time, but it was slow in the beginning, and I learned as we grew. It was originally dedicated to Xena and Hercules, but diversified after those shows ended.

When the Oxygen TV network closed their Xena forum, Jox led their refugees to Whoosh, helped them settle in, and spent countless hours moving content over from their old board to Whoosh. Jox was a natural leader, and a great co-administrator. Thanks to all the people she brought over, the board was thriving, and there was plenty to keep us both busy, but she got right in there, starting discussions and helping to keep them going to keep everyone interested. At the same time, we were both helping members when they needed it, and ultimately ended up leaving that host because of a certain high-level employee who no longer works for them.

It's just too bad we didn't find Runboard when we changed hosts in 2004. Once again, Jox worked hard to move content over to its second home, help people settle in, and continue everything else she always did.

I started watching less TV and became more interested in discussing current events of the time, so I left Whoosh in Jox's capable hands and looked for a new host for my new political board. If I still had the same interests I had back then, I never would have left Whoosh, because they're great people. emoticon

This was 2005. The new home I found was Runboard, and the board I created was Illusia. Jox, Kym, and a few others stopped in to my new board to say hi, and Jox has stuck around. After Whoosh's 2nd host gave her the same reason for concern that I had, she created a new Whoosh here at Runboard, and set it up as she had done with the first two moves. Many members have followed her over, others will take more time because they've already moved around so much, but Jox is patient and dedicated to the members, and will let them make it over in their own time.

Jox, if you are still "co-" anything, you are co-kahuna to Kym, without whom Whoosh would never have existed. You are the glue that has held that gang together for so long, and you shouldn't sell yourself short. emoticon
