vBActivity & Awards

Product downloaded over 6,045 times.
DragonByte Technologies are proud to present vBActivity & Awards v3: The most advanced, most feature-rich and most professional Activity tracking system ever.

vBActivity & Awards from DragonByte Tech is a modification designed to allow yourself and your members to keep track of their activity, and be rewarded for it. Give points for many different actions - Posting, Starting threads, Voting, Referrals...

Furthermore, your members get rewarded for creating content which is popular! Gain points for every post in a thread you created, points for high thread ratings, for having a good reputation and more!

You can utilise vBAA to encourage members to do certain things on your forum. Lack of new threads? Increase the points given for starting a thread and watch as the thread count rises. Need an influx of new members? Give a boost to referral points and watch as people try to collect more points.

Set Achievement targets for your members to encourage them to get more posts, start more threads, or do any one of a number of things!

Is quality more important to your forum than quantity? Use our Awards system. Manually allocate medals to users for things like the most thoughtful post, the best thread or even things like the most unique signature!

Feature List
Major Features

Activity Tracking & Stats: Dedicated activity tracking pages lets you see how many points members have gained for each action, and a browseable archive of aquired activity points lets you see exactly when the points were gained.

Achievements: A powerful engine for creating new achievements lets you create Achievements matching just about any criteria you can think of based on the list of actions (full list of actions can be found in the Complete Feature List below).

Awards: For the moments that deserve something special, you can create and hand out special awards separately from Achievements, acting as unique merit badges.

Professional Only Benefits

Trophies: Give members trophies for being the best at something! Most posts? Trophy! Most threads? Trophy! Only one member can hold a trophy at a time, meaning lots of competition to be *THE ONE*!

Backups: Want to share your carefully put together collection of Achievements, Medals and Trophies with other vBActivity Pro owners? Want to re-install vBActivity on a fresh forum without losing your configuration? Use the backup and import system to achieve this.

Snapshots: Do you want to give double points for a week to encourage activity? With our Snapshot system it's as easy as a click of a button. Take a snapshot of your current settings, change it to what you want for the week, then switch back to your old settings instantly!
