I wanted to do something similar so came up with this method that works great. Allow access to moderators in the options (Turn on YAAS in ModCP)

Now create a new User Profile Field as follows;

Type: Single-Selection Radio Buttons
Name: Award System Manager
Options:
No
Yes

Set Default: Yes
Field Editable by User: No
Private Field: Yes
Field Searchable on Members List: No
Show on Members List: No

Now go into the Plugin Manager and Edit Plugin YAAS - Give Award to User Nav
Find

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

replace with (or comment out and add below)

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

Where fieldXX is the User Profile Field ID of the field you've just created.

My entire block for that now looks like (note I commented out the first line)

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

Finally, pick the users that you want to give access to and go into their profile in the AdminCP and select Yes in the Award System Manager profile field.

The user WILL need to already have access to the ModCP for this to work but as you're looking at Super Mods then I assume this is already the case.

I've done this on our forum as we did not want all moderators to be able to give awards, just our 'section heads'

On another note, I've also got the award system plugged into the permissions now and when an award is given to a user a scheduled task runs and checks for new awards and assigns them to a usergroup based on the award. There is also a script that checks for removed awards and will remove the relevant usergroup too.

Nice Mod!

I made a couple extra medals using PowerPoint shapes...not very sophisticated, but then neither are my graphics abilities. Attached is the 2 medals I made along with the power point file that has the shape templates in it.

Too many queries in showthread

I am using this mod (right now in actual version 3.7.4) since version for vBulletin 3.5.x, but becouse of recently server load problems I noticed, that when I enable showing of awards for postbit_legacy it adds 12 queries when generating showthread (vB 3.8.1). Is it normal? Becouse I am using this mod since older version for vBulletin 3.5.x, I tried uninstall it on separate copy of forum for testing purposes (vB 3.8.0) and when I install this mod again (version 3.7.4) as fresh install, it adds 15 queries to showthread - that is too many from my point of view.

How many queries it should add to showthread with enabled viewing of awards in postbit? What are your observations?

Question

Question:

I'd like the Poll to be Public on the Thread of Award Request for an User. What Code Lines on What Plugins Should I Change (and What Code Should I Use), for the Polls to be Public instead of Private (currently the Polls are Created Private), so that I can see Who Voted Yes or No to the Award Request?

I think is Important to Know Who Voted Yes and No, when making the Voting Recount, and to Exclude Votes from Users that Voted without any Criteria (Trolls).

(I think that Perhaps Adding a Yes/No Option to Choose to Create the Poll Public would be a Nice Feature on Your Next Update of this Great Mod.)

My Best Regards.

great mod... quick question...

Is there a way to change the column widths on the awards.php page? Specifically the "Name / Description" width is too narrow. We have longer descriptions to our awards and they're getting squeezed pretty bad.

Thanks!

I prefer the awards to show up in the signatures area... But it defaults to align to the left. Is there a way to center them?

Installed and working fine now..i had a small issue with the "request an award" link as it was not sending the pm and giving the "you don;t have permission" text --but i got past it --seems you need to go to your usergroups and it will kind of refresh and then it should work.

thanks for the great and east to use mod!

SAD! There should be some sort of mod support ENFORCEMENT! The author and the person listed for support have not been here since December of last year! So I tried going to CypherSTL's site, guess what it isn't working, email and PM from here are either undeliverable or unreturned. Why should I risk installing this mod and breaking the 3.5 version I currently have had working for 2 years and which keeps working up through vbulletin 3.8.1?

Is anyone EVER going to upgrade this mod AND support it???

BTW there are no install docs or upgrade docs in the ZIP file here, it says nothing about what will happen to my existing awards for members that have been granted in my 3.5 version.

Ugh... FRUSTRATION!

The templates on this MOD don't cache right on my forum, and this leads to a lot of extra queries. How can I fix this?
