Wa-hey! A links directory!

NZB's front page is powered by vBAdvanced CMPS, from www.vbadvanced.com (http://www.vbadvanced.com/).

We have the latest posts from the Announcements Forum displayed in the center in order to have those important pieces of information be seen easily and an articles block on the left sidebar.

We provide a formatted message for Guests explaining our Mission Statement and the benefits of being a registered member. For unactivated members it displays the fact that they must check their email and click the link. For members it displays important site information.

Our target audience is anybody who wants to meet people, chat, orentertain themselves online. In addition to the Discussion Forums, we have a PhotoPost Photo Gallery (http://www.nzboards.com/photos), the ibPro Arcade (http://forums.nzboards.com/arcade.php) System, uShop, vBookie, personal Journals and Hivemail, or NZBMail (http://nzbmail.nzboards.com/). Registered users receive a free @nzboards.com email account once they reach 25 posts.

For contributors, we use the vBulletin promotions system to move them into Gold or Platinum usergroups, each having access to special features such as Spellcheck and the ability to have a default colour for their posts.

NZB has Search Engine Friendly links powered by vBSEO (http://www.vbseo.com/105/).

After a few months of making constant changes, I have gotten to the point where I am happy with it all.
