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.

I just posted a fix for this.
vBNominate 1.2.5
  • drastically reduced queries in showthread
  • fixed user profile tab, now displays nominated and won entries
  • removed non combined dropdowns from display if they have no options

Is it possible to make it so the winning poster/item gives a bonus or award? I would like to award reputation points for example.

Those who were nominated in the previous month are getting this error at the top of their profile pages now. Any fix?
Warning: in_array() expects parameter 2 to be array, boolean given in [path]/dbtech/vbnominate/includes/class_profileblock.php on line 86

Those who were nominated for one thing get this error once, those who were nominated for two things get it twice and so forth and so on. I think it has to do with the fixed user profile tab that shows nominated and won entries.

I'm sorry about that.
If you open
dbtech/vbnominate/includes/class_profileblock.php

Find

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

and change it to

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

That should fix it

What are you using for your date format on your primary language?
ACP->Languages & Phrases->Language Manager->Edit Settings
Field: Date Format Override

There is no integration right now for reputation. I'll create a request on our system to look into it on our next update.

In the new version, if you don't use the combined menu, the thread nomination doesn't give you a successful completion message. You click on it and nothing happens. If you refresh it's gone meaning the vote was registered.

How does the poll work? If I select poll, how does it know which forum to create the poll thread? Can I still add photos and data to this poll thread?

Can you tell me what you are doing when you get that error? Nominating a thread, post, user, etc?
Also, are you using combined or separate menu

Does it happen on any type of separated nomination or a specific type? It's working on my dev so not sure which part isn't giving the notification.

On the Nominate General Settings you tell it what forum to create the poll thread in. It should work like any other poll thread.

It happens when an unregistered member goes to http://www.************.com/forums/vbnominate.php?id=10

I don't know what the id=10 is used for in the vbnominate system or if unregistered is some type of spider or bot indexing pages because no member with any regular activity has triggered it off. It's combined menu.
