    Hey everyone

    We are going to trial a new addon to the forum, called TOTM, or TOTF or TOTW

    TOTM - Topic Of The Month
    TOTF - Topic Of The Fortnight
    TOTW - Topic Of The Week

    To start off with we will try the Fortnightly option and see how that goes.

    Here's how it works. If you come across a thread/topic that you think has generated some creative and constructive discussion, then you can nominate that thread by clicking on this icon...
    [​IMG]
    Which you will find at the bottom right of the FIRST post in that thread...
    Nominated threads will have a nomination icon above the avatar and also a list of members that have made the nominations underneath the first post...
    All nominations will automatically be removed every fortnight and the winning thread will have this icon placed in it...
    Hope everyone finds it useful, there are a few settings and restrictions that I still need to learn about, so bare with me while we trial it out. @butcherman will be running this, although it is mostly fully automated.

    Any questions or suggestions? Shout. :)

    Could the "Award Winner" have a spot on the Profile..? Like the Rep points...that way...Members can see who has interesting Threads and maybe make a point of following their Posts...:blush:..don't think I would like everybody to know who I voted for or who I nominated...sorry..that's just me...:blush:

    Yes, I think there is something there but I see it doesn't come up all the time, I will have to look into that, but yes, it says something about nominations and awards under your avatar I think.

    Oh yes, rep points, you get 1 rep point for every nominated thread of yours, and if you win you get 15 rep points, 2nd place gets 10 rep points and 3rd place get 5 rep points.
    Man up, don't be shy. :tt2:

    Yes, I think there is text with a link or something, but it doesn't seem to be showing at the moment, I will look into it.
