What is Modification of the Month?
Modification of the Month, also known as MOTM, is a contest that awards coders who release modifications to the community.

Any ‘Add-On’ that adds functionality to a forum with PHP code is eligible for the Modification of the Month award. Any licensed member is eligible to nominate a modification for Modification of the Month.

What determines the Modification of the Month?

MOTM is based on a simple nomination system. The five modifications with the most nominations in a month’s time are automatically generated into a final poll. All licensed members are then able to vote for their favorite choice amongst the five final modifications.

How can I nominate a modification for the contest?

Members are allowed to nominate as many modifications every month as they wish, Nominations can also be cancelled during the month.

Every modification thread has a link under Mod Options titled: 'Nominate for MOTM' that allows you to nominate that modification.
