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.

I just released 1.2.3 which should fix the problem. Once you vote on a thread nomination it should pop up a message thanking the user for the nomination. Let me know if it doesn't.

How hard would it be to add "two weeks" to the drop down box for length of nomination.
And also to a dd a thread number rather than a forum category?

Great mod in theory, but not perfect for our needs.
I'll create a request on our site to remind me to look into it for the next version.

I have installed and uninstalled this mod 3times now and still it don't show the settings menu in the acp(it does shows in vB option) and it also does not show the nominate menu button in the thread.
I also don't see the permission settings in the usergroup manager.
I uploaded all files to the right folders etc...

Sounds like you didn't upload the cpnav file in includes/xml/

Or your bitfields are being rebuilt. Verify that the file exists, install vBNominate again, problem persists? Turn on debug mode and rebuild bitfields.

Sorry I didn't get to this sooner. I'd need you to PM me an admin account and I'll check it out.

What do you mean by move it to the postbit?

I'll add blocking the user in the next version.

Are you a superadmin as defined in config.php / do you have Can Admin vBNominate permissions?
