I might argue that voting takes a little bit more than a click of a button, at least fair voting does. I expect from whoever votes that they have viewed/read the submissions and sincerely voted for the one they find the best regardless of the name next to it.

As for the idea of a single thing instead of many I think that's a good one. Hope it works.

I admit that it was an over-exaggeration on my part, but it falls in-line with why a bunch of competitions does not work and does not provide the interest and participation.

Is it possible to have a dice rolling tool/option when posting? Cause I have an idea for a kind of role-play involving rolling dices. I know it is possible since I once joined a Vietnamese forum with that tool. But I'm not sure if we can have it here.

Could be possible, I'll have a find the dice-rolling option to see if it's compatible with the version of Mybb we're using.

After researching, it seems that the only way to get the dice roller is through a paid subscription or simply create my own plugin. The last two links has an outdated plugin which is only compatible with the previous version of the forum software. 

I was currently developing several plugins for the site, so I might be able to see if I can get a dice-rolling plugin (unless I can find a way to find something without paying or having to create an account to sign up for it). I'll keep you updated by Friday when I conduct more research into this.

I don't know much about coding but here's another. Is BBCode the same as what our site is using?

Hmm, vbulletin and Mybb are two different sites coding, so it won't translate well without massive changes in the plugin itself in order to fit it with Mybb's coding xD

As the challenge came to an end, Freak recommended his suggestion of how can improved the challenges/competitions:

Freak Wrote:Simply put, adding a monetary reward won't encourage participation. If anything, narrowing it down from multiple competitions to one "challenge" actually lowers overall participation, especially considering that neither Grey, Vegetto nor I can draw. The competitions didn't have good individual participation, but it had a better overall participation rate than these challenges as they had a wider spread of skills that tailored to individuals specific skills, like my or Vegetto's graphic design skills. In conclusion, The challenges are actually a step BACK from what was intended, as it only tailors to one skill at any given time, which greatly reduces the number of capable participants. 

So the solution in my mind is to either revert back to the competitions or develop a single challenge that can utilize more than one skill. Maybe a team competition? I'm thinking of something where it has, like, this central theme (Mario, for example), and we have teams of up to, say, 3, collaborate on making one extremely badass piece using their individual strengths to augment each-other. (i.e you draw Mario and Browser fighting and shit and I take that drawing and translate it into a graphic design) or so on and so forth. Though as a rule, it would require the use of two different "skills" (which would have to be elaborated on) and have a minimum team requirement of two people. You know, so no single person just goes and hogs all the prize moneys for himself :L

What do you guys think about this? Think
