vBNominate is an advanced nomination system. Several different types of nominations are available and it is fully automated to keep your users engaged and interested in your communities activity while keeping maintenance down.

Uses
As admin you will be able to create several different types of nominations. The nominations can either end with the top nominated items winning or a separate poll will automatically be created with the top items.

Once the poll is completed the nomination is updated automatically with the results. No manual intervention is needed on your part! You can specify the type of nomination to be run or you can let it run on several different types of items like threads, polls, blogs, etc.

The nominations system will make it easy for users to have competitions for the best post, thread and more while browsing the forum. No need to go to a special page to vote, all voting can be done for any post from any thread via AJAX.

Instructions
Here are some basics on how to get the nominations started.
1) Make sure you modify the usergroups that will be allowed to nominate.
ACP->Usergroups->UserGroup Manager
2) Create a rotating nomination
ACP->DBTech - vBNominate-> Create Rotating
An example, if you want a weekly Thread nomination, set Type to Thread, Cycle to Weekly, End Date way far in the future, like Dec 31 2058. After you submit new Nomination go to step 3.
3) Edit new Inactive Nomination
ACP->DBTech - vBNominate-> Current Nominations
You should now have an inactive nomination. Edit it if you need to make any changes then set it to active.

You should now have a Nomination link in your postbit. At the end of the week it will automatically end and start a new one on the day you specified.

So the Nominate button is in the postbit legacy and not at the bottom left on the message area

I would need temp admin to troubleshoot it. Hard to fix the problem if I can't see it.

Thanks Dylan, Installed om my test site on a VB4.1.11 and it works nice. Love the automated "Rotating Nominations" feature. It deduces a load of manual labor

I just posted up a bugfix release of vBNominate 1.2.4

This release fixes a few bugs. I also changed the way the time is calculated for adding/ending nominations.
  • Blog nomination link showing up when no blog nominations available
  • Blog nomination dropdowns not working
  • Blog comment nomination link showing up when no blog comment nominations available
  • Blog comment nomination dropdowns not working
Also, If you are a clean freak then there are 3 files that are no longer used and can be deleted.
dbtech/vbnominate/cron/add_rotate.php
dbtech/vbnominate/cron/end_nomnom.php
dbtech/vbnominate/cron/end_nomnom_poll.php

Hi Dylan,
I have a question. I have a thread nomination going but every post in the thread has a nominate dropdown. It says nominate>thread and it works but I'm just wondering if this is standard.

Also I noticed in the settings the thread nomination hook is set for postbit_start and the post nomination hook is set to postbit_userinfo_right_after_posts. The only nomination I have is under the avatar next to the infractions. Is that postbit_start? Is there any way to get it up near the thread rating dropdowns?

Hi Danny, I haven't been able to find a way to tap into the top administrative toolbar, that's why I put it in the thread tools at the bottom.
Right now it displays in every post if you use combined. This is because you have the ability to nominate a particular post/user/avatar/sig and you can't do that with one main dropdown at the top of the thread.
If you only have thread nominations and don't plan on doing any other types, you can change it so it doesn't use the combined list and set the thread hook to use postbit_start. That should get it the closest to how you want.

Thank you for the reply. The thread hook location is currently set at postbit_start. Are you saying there is another possible location for the nomination button or to have the nomination button only in the first post?

If you look at the nominations settings there is a tab for Popup Options. On that tab is the setting called Combined Menu. If you set that to no and change the Thread Hook Location to be postbit_start then it should only show 1 dropdown option above the first post. That is only if you have the nomination set to a type Thread.

Ah I missed that option. It worked thank you although it caused a new issue. Even though I have only one rotating thread nomination created, all the nomination buttons are now visible. Is that supposed to be like that or should it only display active nominations? I f I choose no automatic deployment then they all disappear.

What would it take to get the combined list to appear at postbit_start instead of at the bottom of the postbit?

I'm working on a bugfix release for it. I'll try and take care of it in that.

I'm sorry about that, I'll get it fixed up in the next release. If you want to disable the profile tab for now, go to
ACP->Plugins & Products->Plugin Manager
Find the section: Product : DragonByte Tech: vBNominate (Pro)
Find the plugin: Member Info Profile Block
And uncheck it to disable it
