Celebrating One Year Of Being The Best
To commemorate our one year anniversary online hosting the Best Boards on the net, we proudly announce that the new "Celebrating one year of being the best" BbShirts have arrived! These new t-shirts are 100% cotton and are the first, and only edition to be produced in honor of our first year online. As a special promotion these shirts will only be available during the month of December 2002 and will sell for $10.99 each. Worldwide shipping will be $3 (no matter the number of shirts you order) and shirts will take between 2-4 weeks to arrive. Sizes Small, Medium, Large and X-Large are available. A BbPen may be included with the shirts. They are very limited in stock, so pre-order your shirt by clicking here before they're all gone...

We are also starting a customized t-shirt selling program for admins. If you would like to have shirts with your board's URL on them for yourself and your members we will be adding a button in the Admin Center under Payment, for you to enable T-Shirts to be sold from your board (with your board's URL on them). And for each shirt sold your board wil get $1.00 of credit toward Fixed or Variable service for your community. We are hoping that this will help bring communities closer together and boards that otherwise might not have had a chance of getting Fixed or Variable, now have a chance to earn those community benefits. This is still in the working stages, we'll let you know more information when the button is available in your Admin Center. This will hopefully be a permanent addition, not just for the December BbBash.

To celebrate our first year online, in December we will be launching our BbBoard Official Top Sites list that members can vote on to rank communities that want to participate. Admins can list their boards using yet another new button in the Admin Center under Promotion. Once a board is listed in our Top Sites list, members will vote for your board by clicking on the BbBoard Top Sites button on your board. There will also be a voting button on the Top Sites List itself that members can vote upto once per day with.

We will also be having some really fun things going on for members who want to participate in the BbBoard Anniversary BbBash. You will be able to participate in BbHunting. The BbHunts will be set up so that you go hunting for answers around the BbNetwork Support Areas and if you finish a BbHunt you can win a code to claim a free Anniversary BbShirt. Once you've won one BbShirt then you won't be offered another BbHunt and there will be three possible hunts to go on. If one is too hard you can concede and try another one another time. Stay tuned for more information on this nearer December.

There will also be a BbTheme Contest where we will have member submitted Themes for us to judge and to be added to our collection of BbThemes. The top three BbTheme contest winners get a BbShirt and special custom titles on the BbSupport board. The themes will be added on the next release after the new year. We will be adding some special BbRings here on the BbSupport board for BbTheme winning boards and also for winning boards of our Best of the Best Boards contest.

The Best of the Best Boards will be in two categories, Biggest and Best. Members will vote for the Best of those boards submitted to enter the contest and BbStaff will vote for the Biggest of the Best Boards. The first place winners in each category will be awarded one month of Free Fixed service, a T-Shirt, and a BbBest Winner graphic for the Admin creator of the winning board. The Best Board category will be blind rating by members-same prize for the top winning board. Second and third place will get the Award BbGraphic, and possibly a BbPen.

All winning boards will be added to BbRings on the bottom of the BbSupport board. Special rings that will be for each contest. One for BbTheme winning boards and one for Best of the Best Boards. And all winning Admins will get a custom title on BbSupport board related to the contest their board won. It is our hope that everyone will enjoy these activities and we really do appreciate your support. Without all of you we would not be here. We will be having BbBashes as we greet each new year marking another year of hard work and wonderful memories.

So get ready! December's BbBash is on the horizon and soon you will be able to start selling t-shirts with your board's URL on them and working toward reduced advertising service or fully ad free by going for Variable service. No matter what we appreciate all of you and hope that you all enjoy what we've got in store for you in December as well as the upcoming releases that we will bring in the new year with. Thank you all for having faith in us and for choosing us to host your communities.

Re: Celebrating One Year Of Being The Best
I know and I can't wait..The Topsites list will be wonderful as well. I was thinking of starting one of my own for Bb Admins as well. I've been running one for other places for over a year, unfortunately it will be shutting down due to my move to this host but I'm sure my new one will grow here as did my other.

I think the template contests will also be a wonderful thing and I bet the other members of Bb will agree, it's things like that , that keep people coming back.
I forgot to congradulate you guys, So Congradulations!!!!!

Re: Celebrating One Year Of Being The Best
You can pay for the shirts in any way we normally accept payment - we only included credit card/online check, and paypal on there though. :smile: If you want, you can even pay by having the amount deducted from your board's credit. If you need to sort out a different way to pay, support@bbboy.net - or just take a look at our regular payment methods :smile:

actually I have a Paypal account but it's empty, I can't even accept money from someone unless I'm verified (meaning I have to have a checking account) which I don't :ohwell: what I usually have to do to pay for my board is send one of my moderators money and have her use her paypal account.

Very few actually and those that do appear are dealt with, if not immediately, then in the next upgrade, which is never far away. :smile:
