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.

I don't see it on the forum only in the admincp.

When I run the ./competitions.php I get this error:

Warning: Division by zero in /includes/functions.php(4259) : eval()'d code on line 10

This is probably because I'm running vb 3.50?

If so is there a competition for Vb 3.50?

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

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
