Your Favorite Live Vanilla Examples?

I've been trying to search this forum and around the net for examples of vanilla forums but haven't had much luck finding that many real life examples. Could someone post their favorite vanilla example sites?

    I run a clean Vanilla forum with a custom design. I use the WordPress ProxyConnect plugin and it seems to work fine. You can give it a try at my website. Feel free to ask me anything about Vanilla or share your thoughts.

    @shadowdare - it doesn't look like you are using embed. Instead it looks like you added your headers to the forum installation. That, of course, is a much cleaner setup because it loads faster. I'm using embed on a wordpress site. The site loads and then the script for Vanilla throws the forum on the screen a second or two later. My site's visual wrapper doesn't make it easy to toss a header onto the forums, but how did you setup and style the wrapper around your forum to make it blend in with the frontpage?

    Hi Shadowdare, very nice use of vanilla!
    Any other sites out there? I'm really surprised at the lack of decent examples of people using this technology.

    You can check out mine at (using a modified embed friendly theme so it can be embedded into other community sites)

    I still have to make the footer for the theme but yes its running vanilla.

    @Kylebolt: Thank you. :)

    @leafboxtea: I created my own theme based on the default theme and added my own master template to it with my own header and footer codes. I found that embed loaded slow because of WordPress and that links looked better without embed. The iframe also was annoying at times too because sometimes the header and footer would show up inside the iframe if it didn't use the "_top" target.
