Possible Feature Request: Move entry.

Whenever I have two contests running at the same time (for example, one monthly, one year-long) one or more folks inevitably upload their entry to the wrong contest and then ask if I can move it. Moving an entry would be a handy mod action.

Couple Questions/Suggestions

1) It was suggested a while ago for the option to allow anonymous entries.  Is this something on the list or are you not interested?

2) Is there a way for us to add custom fields to the entry submission form?  If not, I'd like to suggest that as well for the purpose of requesting credit for all resources used in the entries when applicable.

These aren't currently features but are great suggestions I've added to my list for consideration for 1.4

Is it possible to have entries/voting and whatever happening in a contest into the activity stream? Have I missed a setting somewhere?

Entries already appear in activity streams the same as all content items, topics, gallery images etc. Votes are an additional activity stream setting configured in the admin control panel default activity stream settings. It's a little tucked away in there behind a button.

I’m not aware of an existing 3rd party French translation but the app can be translated the same as official apps. Admin control panel > customisation > languages

Hi Andy , do you have a timeframe for next version? Just to decide if it is worth waiting out of I would install right away 🙂

Hmm, seems I am not smart enough to figure this out.  I installed and it created the first competition for Mar 2020.  When I view it on the site, there are no competitions pending.

How do I post a pic?

Have you set up the group permissions?

I had.

It seems to be working.

I deleted the one that was automatically created and added a new one.  It works now.

The time fields seem a little too small, AM and PM are cut off.

You need to set permissions in the scheduler settings too otherwise new competitions will be added with blank permissions.

@Andy Millne, I have been eyeing this for a bit, decided to get it and when trying to install I get this error

 

Row size too large. The maximum row size for the used table type, not counting BLOBs, is 8126. This includes storage overhead, check the manual. You have to change some columns to TEXT or BLOBs

Can you subscribe to a competition?  I'd like to know when new pics are posted so that I can vote.

Yes, this is possible. The app uses the default follow functionality in Invision Community

I have a feature request. Is it possible to have a "Next image" button, so that we can swipe through each image in a competition?

 

This isn't currently possible but I can look into it.

Can you send me a pm with access info so I can look into this please?

Hi @Andy Millne

yesterday we saw a problem with automated start of competition for this month. Permissions were set right, start date was set right. Nevertheless, users could have uploaded pictures before the start. In previous months we didn't have this problem.

Do you have an idea what could be the problem?

Hmm interesting. Competitions are only set to running after the task has run and finds competitions with a start time earlier than the current time.

How much earlier could they enter? Perhaps this was a daylight savings change issue.

Hi Andy, I think you never answered my question 🙂

Now that I waited a few weeks I can wait a little longer, plus with the covid trafic on my site is quite low...

Sorry I missed this. I don't currently have a public release date for 1.4. It's coming along nicely but there have been some good suggestions here and I would like to squeeze a few more in.

We tried 7 hours before midnight to setup the new competition for April.

I'm not sure I follow. You said that users could enter before the start of the competition. What date and time did you set as the start of the competition and when were they able to enter? If you would like to send me a pm I can investigate this further without cluttering up this topic. Thanks

We set as start 00:00 at 01.04.2020, and users could enter immediately after setup, and this was yesterday at 5pm. But I'll send a pm 🙂
