Author Notes
This extension was developed specifically for my website but I am releasing the code since a few members here have have shown interest. I cannot state that it is totally free of bugs. I would appreciate your feedback in making this extension better.

Maybe in Future
At the moment, the question is only restricted to one per competition. I would like to have the ability to add more than one question per competition.

Would it be possible to make this mod controllable through administrator permissions so only some administrators see it ?

you do not have permission to access this page

icecubejackal, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
2. You have not filled out some required fields in your profile. Please ensure that the following fields are filled out:

1. I already do the permission on admincp
2. Im confused of the Mandatory Profile Fields?? which id im going to put user id? or group id?

im using 3.7.3 version
