    We are having issues with the points mod we're using for the contest, it's a new plugin so we've been helping test it along with using it in our contest. We've had to reset the contest once and I don't want to keep doing that every 3 weeks.

    We still have all prizes secured and will start the contest once again ASAP. For now please check the forums and carry on like normal, we may be able to add a few prizes, I know we're strong on the xenforo side, I'll see if we can get a vbulletin suite donated to help encourage the vb fans. :)

    I like the idea of the contest, but what about non XenForo/vBulletin users? What do they get? Because let's face it, for any IPB, phpBB, MyBB, SMF, etc users vBulletin and XenForo mods are completely useless to them.

    An incentive to buy XF maybe. If you really have no use for the mods and have no intention to buy the script, then I guess you'll just have to gift them to someone who does.

    Maybe you missed our top donator, postloop points can be used for any forum or blog you own?

    This is only our first contest, we've already been approached by those who could help any type of site via internet marketing as well as other scripts.
    I know the other prizes are geared towards xenforo users, it may not be the same with the next contest.

    Is there a leaderboard? Would be nice to be able to keep track of where everyone is :)

    Wait, you'll update it monthly? That's pretty cool, I expected to maybe hear the results when the contest was over instead.

    Also, what's with the -2 points for everything you unlike? Is there usually a problem with people liking posts and unliking them again later?

    Oh cool, okay.

    Also, I don't know if you spelt this wrong, but you put 'MyPonts' as a possible XenForo add on, it should probably be MyPoints, right?

    That's cool. I don't really know how the plugin is structured, but I imagine it'll be a pretty simple DB query.

    That's what I was thinking as well, I know I'll have to go dig in the database to get the monthly winners.

    We could always code a leaderboard... I can volunteer to do the queries and output to a table or something.. Though layout and design is not my thing lol.. Plus I am colorblind
