The long awaited awards application for IPS has arrived!
iAwards provides administrators the ability to award their members with badges that show in their profile and, if chosen, on their posts.
Standalone this application has the ability to manually award members and to award members based on the amount of awards the member has. You can award both from the ACP as well as from the create menu at the top of your site.
In order to give everyone a fully customizable way to award we have integrated it with the Rules application.
This gives you the power to award your members based on rules that you create instead of the ones that we think up.
Choose location of awards – Under the post or under the author pane. Hide awards – To allow members to show the ones they want. Award based on number of awards. Manual awarding. Upgrade Tools for both HQ Awards and Awards (Free). Category and awards management. Support topic at IPS: Click Here

Classifieds System is an application that enables your members to list items for sale/trade, monetizing your community.
Commerce: https://invisionpower.com/features/commerce How does it work?
Admin can enable TRANSACTIONS, which will allow members to buy items directly from another member via app and the advertiser receives the amount paid via account credit. If TRANSACTIONS is disabled, things has to be done manually: member needs to contact the advertiser in ways he wants (he chooses when posting the advert), make the deal, then the advertiser will set the advert as PENDING DEAL. After the payment/deal is done, advertiser sets the advert as COMPLETED. In both cases, if the advert is a SALES advert type BIDS (offers) are allowed if the admin enables the setting and if the advertiser also enables it when posting the advert.
THIS IS NOT AN UPGRADE of the old app (for IP.Board 3.4), so if you used the old app you probably still have data from the old app in your database, take a read on manual.pdf (page 2) in the zip file or request support before you install this app. Each purchase entitles you to use Classifieds System on one Community installation.

This app wants to improve, especially with the user's advice, the new CLUBS feature (4.2+).
It is now released at a special price because many of the features are still under development.
A detailed roadmap will be viewable in the APP support area.
Blocks manager for CLUBS
you can create and edit unlimited block for any clubs.
With this feature you can do many things, some example:
1. Add an HTML block
2. Add a donation block
3. Add advertising block
4. Add a generic Image
5. Add a custom menù
6. Add a links block
and so on...
Show CLUBS icons everywhere (from 1.1.0)
Show icon on profile Show icon on hovercard Show icon on topic view Set icon size settings Set max icons displayed
I have many ideas to add to this app, which is why the starting price is much lower than the final price ($45+) when the roadmap is completed.
I you need something more in CLUBS buying this app now could be a good deal,
so you can come to our support CLUB and ask for a new feature. : D
