Optional Vote Reward

    Some sites, especially webcomics, offer a monthly/weekley/etc. incentive for voting.

    For example, a webcomic might have a desktop wallpaper image of a favored character, and the only way to see it and download it to use is if you vote for the comic on a top site.

    So I think this script might benefit from including options for this.

    What the site owner gets:

    - A new text box when editing their infomation, titled "Voting Reward". You could use very basic HTML, like IMG.

    What the voter sees:

    - After agreeing to vote via the gateway (if gateway is enabled) they will see the contents of that reward box in a "lightbox" ontop of the top sites page. Probably with an "X" to close it when they're done looking or have downloaded it.


    That's it, you've just created the ability for site owners to give voting incentives!

    I like this idea, but more likely it will be handled via plugins

    Agreed this would be more suited for a plugin rather than a core feature.

    I was thinking of something else.

    If for example an owner of the server/website/etc will get 100 votes, he/she will receive a reward of a Coin (you can call that coin as you wish). When the owner will collect let say 50 coins he can then place a free advert on the website.

    I just don't know how to do the plugin for it :)

    Yes, I've started, just running out of time due to day to day work. And it looks a bit complicated as it needs to constantly check amount of votes so if someone will reach for example 50 votes will get 1 VoteZone Coin that can be used to purchase Advert on the website.
    I'm happy to pay for it if someone is willing to do it for me.

    You can also make users to be able to get MAX coins per month so they dont abuse the votes :)
