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.

You can post it, what did you have to modify?

Guests shouldn't be able to nominate unless you set it in their usergroup settings. I don't know how well that would work though as it's coded around nominations being done by users with id's.

in file "forum/dbtech/vbnominate/hooks/forumhome_complete.php"

find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

if you want to change location on forumhome in file "forum/dbtech/vbnominate/hooks/forumhome_complete.php"
at the bottom find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I used one of template hooks... you can use own or create one or add new template location:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Well, I want to disable nomination for guests posts as there no use as I can't reward winning guests.. Some are deleted users and may have been nominated before deletion, so at result when poll created there is NO username!

I think this is need to be done here: "forum/dbtech/vbnominate/hooks/showthread_query.php" but I have not enough skills to do it myself

This is one of my favorite mods, but I can't seem to get it to work. Installation seems to go OK, but any attempts to use it spawns all sorts of db errors that show that my tables aren't being altered during the install process.

Thoughts?

What happens when a nomination ends or is won?

Does the user get a notification? Is a thread created? Etc. What happens when it finishes, besides being listed on the nominations page? Using Autoscore for example.

Hey, can someone tell me I have everything set up correctly in Rotation and Nominations.

But when my users try to nominate for Post of the WEek (I don't have threads, avatars etc set up, only Posts) a popup opens and says "Page Not Found"

Am I doing something wrong?

At this time, I believe it only lists the winners on the nominations page.

Can you show me the URL of the page in question?

So a few hours after I made a "TESTING" rotation, a nomination poll came up in the designated nomination forum.

I did this around 4pm yesterday afternoon and it's 330am (for me) and it's now showing a poll.

But still when I try to nominate something (I only allowed nominations from Staff Forum), it says Page Not Found.

Sorry for missing your query

Are you using vBSEO or DBSEO? That error message doesn't seem like it originates from this mod.

What is each? I'm not sure.

I can give you access to an admin account and maybe you can check my settings?

I followed the directions here. I just want a weekly post of the week nomination thread. No thread, avatar, etc. nom just Post nomination.

Could you please double-check all the files have been uploaded correctly? You should drag and drop the contents of the "upload" folder to your forum's folder in your FTP client.

100% certain I installed it the way the instructions said.

I've got other apps from DB on there including Thanks, and User Tagging and those work fine. I was going to install a shoutbox but I wanted to get the nomination in first.

Again if you want me to give you access to a spare admin account I can.
