Nominations for Featured WX Website Fall '07 now open
« on: January 21, 2008, 02:08:13 AM »
Looks like we admins kinda slipped a cog and didn't start a Fall 2007 poll  :oops:  Sorry!  So.....

It's time to start the search for the WXForum.net Featured Weather Website for Fall, 2007, so please post your nominations (with a short description about your nominee) in this thread.

Gary's guidance

Please list your nominations in this thread - it certainly can't hurt for you to describe why you think your nomination is deserving of this honor.

Don't forget that it is perfectly OK to nominate someone who has been nominated in the past but was not selected! We've had some very deserving nominees, and close runoffs!

Some criteria to consider when making nominations:


The visual attractiveness of the site
Ease of navigation
Quality and quantity of useful or interesting information
Educational value
Distinctiveness


While not a hard and fast rule, sites that only use the unmodified default web page template that comes with the software, while absolutely useful and functional, may not cross into that next level to warrant featuring in this manner. Please try to address these areas while nominating a site.

We'll run the nominations through Thursday, 31-Jan-2008, then start a new thread for polling on Friday, 01-Feb-2008. The polling will run through Monday, 11-Feb-2008.

Just for reference, here were the previous honorees:
Summer, 2007 - Featured Weather Website is neondesert.com
Spring, 2007 - Featured Weather Website is desertweather.com
Winter, 2006 - Featured Weather Website carterlake.org
Fall, 2006 - Featured website Saratoga-weather.org
May, 2006 - featured website beamsvillewx.ca
April, 2006 - featured website capeweather.com
January, 2006 - featured website weather.anolecomputer.com

October, 2005 - Featured website weatherbus.com
September, 2005 - featured website - Loganvillageweather.com

There were TWO I wanted to nominate. #-o  This time I went with:

tobaccovilleweather.com

I still think his time lapse video is the best.  Also, I think the homemade NOAA Satellite Images are very cool.

Very informative site, packed with information!  A Boltek lightning detector has been added recently as well. 

Nice work!  :grin:

Well, I'm going to give Emmett at rivercityweather.net another nomination. I'm kind of like a broken record here but I think it's just an outstanding site.
Maybe this time Emmett.

Henrik,

Thank you very much for the nomination. I am honored.

However, I need to decline the nomination.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Glendora Weather... http://www.glendoraweather.com/

This is a project by a school.  They've done an excellent job of presenting a wide range of information.  The "Random Weather Fact" at the bottom of each page is excellent.  A little heavy on the WUnderground stuff for my taste. ;)  But still a great site.  It would give the students a boost to know their site won an award.  =D>   \:D/

Joe, we're honored by your nomination of our site.  Thank you!  However, our site was sub par before the launch of the remodel (just about two weeks).  Since this nomination is for Fall '07 we feel it would not be fair to the other nominees.  We'd be honored to be considered in the future.
Regards,
Rachel & the fifth grade students of Stanton Elementary
