Nominations for Featured WX Website Winter '07 now open
« on: April 23, 2008, 09:33:04 AM »
It's time to start the search for the WXForum.net Featured Weather Website for Winter, 2007, so please post your nominations (with a short description about your nominee) in this thread.

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 Tuesday, 29-April-2008, then start a new thread for polling on Wednesday, 30-Apr-2008. The polling will run through Tuesday, 13-May-2008.

Just for reference, here were the previous honorees:

Ok, a shameless personal plug...

How about this site? http://www.daculaweather.com/

Not sure what to say about it though! I think it's attractive and well laid out (of course!  :grin: )

Anyway... my nomination!

I would like to nominate:

The site is great, they have "Weathermail", and anyone who packs up and moves (from MeekerWeather.com) all of that webcam and weather equipment deserves my respect  ;)

P.S.  My nominee won last time......two in a row?

I'd like to re-issue my nomination from last time...

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.  It would give the students a boost to know their site won an award.
