Plaudits

Welcome

Hello and welcome to Plaudits, a showcase site! I'm Borealis, Plaudits' curator. Stretching back to 2009, Plaudits has a long history as a competition site, in a number of different formats and even under a different name. Now, as of March 12, 2014, it's been reinvented as a showcase where users can nominate pieces of content that catch their eye.

Currently, Plaudits accepts nominations in three categories: sites, graphics, and customization. If you see a piece of nominated content that you also appreciate, you can like it, as on a certain social-media site.

Each piece of content will be removed 30 days after it is initially nominated, and the nominations that have garnered the most likes in their monthlong tenure are immortalized in Plaudits' showcase.

Updates

April 16, 2014: One new graphics nomination.

April 15, 2014: Removed one old nomination. Remember, if you want to see content stick around after its month-long run, it's got to get likes!

April 12, 2014: One nomination has run its course and been removed. One new site nomination!

March 30, 2014: I'm back—earlier than I expected, too! Feel free to send in nominations and likes! One new site nomination and one new affiliate.

March 23, 2014: I'm going on a trip and so will not be updating until March 31. Feel free to send in forms, though; I'll post nominations, likes, etc. when I get back.

March 12, 2014: Plaudits is back! Feel free to start nominating content. Unfortunately, I did lose the entire sitely section due to technological problems, so if you were affiliates with or listed Plaudits, I'd love it if you let me know. One site nominated.

Nomination

Here you can nominate content that you like to be spotlighted at Plaudits. Please do make sure that you follow these guidelines:
  1. You may not nominate any content you created.
  2. While I can't require it, I would appreciate it if you tried to nominate fairly recent, up-to-date content, not stuff that's been sitting on a page for months.
  3. Make sure you nominate the creator of the content, not necessarily the owner of the page where it is displayed.

Sites

Here, you can see all of the sites that have been nominated at Plaudits in the last 30 days. If you like a site, don't hesitate to show your appreciation by clicking the heart beside it. Content is listed from oldest to newest.

By Alia
Nominated by Elisabeth on 3/30/14
It's a great site to make neofriends, and an original idea to boot!
Fiasco
By Kiwi
Nominated by Borealis on 4/12/14
Originally I was going to nominate one of Kiwi's buttons as a graphic, but then I took a closer look at her buttons and realized that she's made so many fantastic ones that it would be better to just nominate the whole site. Looking through Kiwi's portfolio showed me tons of really great buttons; I love how she incorporates color and really makes her text pop.

Graphics

Userlookup
By Dark
Nominated by Borealis on 3/21/14
I came across this lookup while checking my adoption agency's dream pet list, and it made a huge impression on me. The thing that really caught my eye is the gorgeous, wonderfully spooky animation, but everything about this lookup is just really well put together. Wow!
By Nina
Nominated by Borealis on 4/10/14
This banner for Nina's site Cataclysm is really gorgeous. It would be beautiful even without the animation, with a perfect, cosmic image, but what really puts it over the top is the animation. I've never seen one like it before. Wow!
Custom petpage layout for Lots of Love
By Summer
Nominated by Borealis on 4/15/14
I came across this layout and it just really wowed me. I love the 3D effects applied—all of the pop-out sections seem to be floating above the man layout, the text stands out, and there's even a reflection at the bottom to give the impression that the entire layout exists in a three-dimensional space, rather than just being flattened against the viewer's screen. Also, I'm really impressed by how the colorful image makes the layout pop from a dark background without looking garish or overdone.

Customization

Finally, here are the outfits have have been nominated at Plaudits. You can drag outfits to your address bar for a larger version, and click the heart button to like them.

Tekenfilm
By Nienke
Nominated by Borealis on 4/14/14
I really love the iridescence and delicate colors in this customization. It's also really nice to see such a variety of NC and NP clothing used to create a cohesive theme and setting.
