Creating a contest with vbulletin
Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question so sorry if this should be someplace else. I am starting a message board using vbulletin 4.2.0. I noticed on WebsiteBabble you have a contest setup where you can track who gets the most monthly user reputation points for the month. The following is from a post under "Website Babble Contest Forum>Congrats, James Colin! Your the MVP.
Congrats, James Colin! Your the MVP You earned the most amount of reputation points (115 total points) in the last month (with James, Scott/k2zs and Laura all coming in close right behind you). Thanks everyone for rewarding other members by using the reputation system (located in the bottom left corner of every post).
I am curious on how to track the amount for just 1 month, and can it be tracked for both all time and individual month. I want to run contests on my site the same way. I have asked on the boards over at vBulletin but never get an answer.
Thank You for any help you can give me.
If you go to the admin panel under "Reputation Manager" you can check rep points for any given period. Then it will show you how many people have the most for that month.
Thank You for such a quick response.
I am going to "User Reputations>User Reputation Manager" When I get there I get the following:

Am I in the wrong spot?
I know that you don't take private messages so I don't know where else to ask this question. I have spent over 4k in the past year on people from vbulletin org trying to get them to help me set this site up. The last one wiped the site out completely so in its current state it is all what I have been able to figure out on my own. I am getting close to the point where I am going to start advertising the site via my other sites but there are things I just cannot figure out. I am fortunate that I have other sites that consume all of my time but unfortunate because they are not allowing me the time to learn vBulletin. I know your time is very valuable and I would be willing to pay you upfront for any info you would be able to provide me with. I am not looking for programing, I am looking for information on how to set vbulletin up. I don't know basics like how to set things so people cannot put signatures in until they reach a certain post level. Or how to exclude certain boards from adding to post counts. I understand completely if you cannot and you can delete the end of this post if you want.
