Well it's the 15th and time to nominate you favorite hack. This is the second month and I hope it goes as well as the first.

Here are some guidelines for the nominating.

1. This month only 5 nominees will be accepted.
2. You can nominate your own hack, but you must sit out a month before you can nominate it again.
3. If your hack wins it cannot be nominated again for a year. (Maybe we'll have a Hack of the Year!)
4. If somebody else nominates your hack the month after you nominated your own, the nomination will be accepted.
5.***Important!***Nominations will only be accepted for 5 days after the start of this thread. Deadline is 22:10Hours GMT on the 20th.
6. The criteria for judging a hack is solely left to the subjective perspective of each voter. So anything goes.
7. When you make a nomination please include the a link to the hack.
8. ***Important!***All nominations recieved within the 5 days will be thrown into a hat and 5 final nominees will be pulled. This selection will be 100% random!

If you have any more opinions/ ideas for other guidelines or opinions on these guidelines, please feel free to post them.

Happy nominating and may the best hack win,

Scott

p.s. I would like to have a few graphics/logos like there are for Board of the Month. If someone would like to make a vB Hack of the Month logo go for it. I will then post it in the winner's circle along with credit for your work.

hello all,

Well the nominating isn't going so well. Please nominate your favorite hack. This shows your appreciation for the hard work done by those who wrote the hacks.

I have to go with vBStats too.

My second choice would be Auto PM to new members.

I'll second the auto-pm new members. I've gotten a lot of positive response from this one. Great hack and easy to implement.

Yes I agree, people really like it (and actually think I sit down and write a welcome message to every new member ;)).

Wouldn't it be good to use the poll for this kind of posts ? ;)

Chen

Nope, polls are used to the actual contest. These are just the nominations. :)

I nominate the NNTP Gateway (Usenet/Newsgroups) (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=35247) hack - it's brand new and it's great! Okay, there are problems on some forums but Gilby is doing very much to help everyone - I like that :)

I second this nomination.

In fact, this hack is amazing as you don't even need to change a single file or template. I have installed a multitude of hacks into my board, and this is one of the best ones.

You just have to upload the files, and it runs by itself. :)

And the problems with this hack have nothing to do with the hack itself, but with certain nntp newservers which are troublesome to connect to.

Well done, Gilby!

Hello all,

I should have closed nominations after the 20th but since we're lacking a bit of enthusiasm I've decided to leave the nominations open until the end of the month. That should make the nominating a bit more interesting. There are also plenty of good hacks to choose from (like the vbcode improvement hack;)) so keep nominating. Sorry I had to plug my hack.:)
