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.

In the admincp you can see if if you click current rotations.

I'm having a problem that that the winner from last month is still showing up in the voting.

Sure, but if you see the first and the second cap, is not in the panel.

There is no real front end for the nominations. I'm going to build one the next version. If you have one of the blocks showing it will link to the completed nomination where you can view the results.

I'm needing a mod that "scores" points in a debate thread. I run an online community and some of my users have been wanting a way to tabulate arguments. I thought that some form of poll or nominate hack could be made to do this, but not sure. Could this hack do that? If not, do you have something that would be similar? If not, would you consider being hired to create something for our community?

Not sure how well it would work for scoring a debate. If you are interested in custom work we have a thread about it here

Included fixes for v1.2.6 are:
Fixed - Blog nomination link missing
Fixed - ACP link to nominated items
Fixed - Nomination winners showing as 1 vote
Added - ACP Maintenance section to rescore incorrect nominations with previous problem

Hmm, my dev is 4.2 PL2 and I'm not seeing that. Could I get access to take a look? Or could you take a screenshot for me to see?
