RE: sticky, I refuse to vote for a hack that simply took a pre-existing template modification (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=93846) and turned it into an inefficient plug-in. I mean, please.

I prefer to encourage innovation and hard work.

I have yet to see an idea that wasn't inspired from something that pre-existed. The concept of innovation is to take something to another level, not necessarily developing it from scratch. It's easy to criticize from the perspective of after fact.

I guess when I cast my vote on this, I think about development complexity and time as well (not to mention support.) Folks tend to rally behind the easy-to-grasp hack, the one they clicked and made sense on their forum, and was easy to install. It seems that just because they may have been overwhelmed by the description of a huge hack, or because it didn't work for THEM, they'll ignore it as a HOTM contender.

I see this as the difference between, say, the People's Choice Awards and the Oscars. I think if only coders voted, you'd get a much different result here.

If I were coding for free here, I imagine I'd be disenfranchised to see what sort of hacks get rewarded and which get overlooked by this process. But maybe that's just me.

Everyone has their voting preferences. Personally, I like functional hacks, complex or not. I'm not swayed by what's most popular or what's easiest to install. If the hack has purpose and it works that's what matters most for me. :)

I cast my vote for Ban A User From A Thread, for the following reasons:

- Originally coded by the author, not a port or remake.
- Supported
- Practicality

I agree that the Sticky Separation hack is a popular install and quite functional, but it is incredibly simple to do on your own (and frankly I don't see the need for the CP on/off feature. If you didn't want it on, why install it? lol). I'd rather see someone with a more original idea that is functional and appropriate for EVERY forum, and provides much more than another table cell with a background image.

Ban User From A Thread for me:D

They are all great! Just too many choose from :( lol

I definetly voted for 'Ban User From A Thread'. I said it earlier that it should be a standard feature on all forum software. Personally, I think nothing is more functional than it on other add-ons of this contest.

Anyway, I wish good luck to others

I thought of voting this hack first, but I made up my mind...
This hack is useless

read your post just in time to vote

I have to vote for what is the most useful. Ban from a thread will solve a lot of my problems.

what happened to MAY? lol

Yea.You should start and end HOMT at the 1st

Paul M
13 May 2006, 22:25
The 1st of what exactly ?

If this had started on May 1st, even more people would ask why April's hotm was in May. If you had started it on April 1st, how could it include anything actually released in April ?

The middle of the month seems a sensible compromise. :)
