Admin-Junkies.com | Admin & Webmaster Community: December is Community Month.

Hello everyone,

I want to use the month December to get to know our members a little better. Therefore I have moved the introduction forum to the top. As well as add a Ask Me Anything forum. Here you can make a thread and allow other members to ask you questions about yourself about preferences, or anything else that comes to mind. I have also added a Forum Games subforum, where you can participate in some fun games like count games, abc games, etc. Content will be added as we speak and there is no post count or credit's increasing while you post there.

I will also be hosting some interviews which you will be able to read about in our Articles. If you wish to nominate some people you'd like to read an interview about, feel free to do in this thread. :)




Furthermore we have added an Article Management System where we will be releasing some articles around forums and interviews in the near future. We have also installed a Classifieds system where we hope to build up a nice list of items for sale such as forums, domains, websites, etc.




2023 Plans for Admin Junkies
My plan with Admin Junkies is to bring more activity and quality content to the forum. Hopefully we'll have a nice list of articles, resources and other webmasters among us. I hope to have a steady active user and content income. It's possible I'll purchase a custom theme next year and buy advertising on various alike websites and forums to drive traffic to our forum which will hopefully convert to active webmasters.




Forum Badges


I have installed a new add-on thanks to Ozzy47 (XenForo) that allows us to make badges and reward our users or given to our users for accomplishments and other things we come up with. I'm currently adding more badges as we speak, so bear with me, there is not much so far. Use this thread to suggest any badges you'd like to see and I'll add them if I see them fit. :)

Badges can be found in your profile page and will also be listed in the thread view under your user title to icons. If you think you have the right to claim a badge, let me know. Some need to be manually added and sometimes I might forget. Here you can see the member list per badge obtained.

XF Verified User Badge also available. Go to your settings and add your License Token to receive the XF Verified badge.
 
Small update:

We now have another Style to our selection: Alt.

It's a great dark style that is newly released from yesterday. Couldn't resist on purchasing and adding this style. 😅
Enjoy!

Additionally I have released a few new interviews that some might want to read. Including one by one of XF's top developers: Nicolas FR

 
What is Battle of the Boards?
Welcome to the Admin Junkies Battle of the Boards competition! This competition brings together 16 forums to face off in a series of rounds, with the goal of ultimately being crowned the champion. The stakes are high, and only one can emerge victorious. Who will come out on top? Follow along and find out!


How does it work?
All 16 forums are placed in 4 categories:
  1. General & Entertainment: 4 forums - two rounds to eliminate the competition
  2. Gaming & RPG: 4 forums - two rounds to eliminate the competition
  3. Forum Services: 4 forums -two rounds to eliminate the competition
  4. Miscellaneous: 4 forums - two rounds to eliminate the competition
You may select up to 4 people from your staff and members from your forum and join the competition. In a team of 5 you will compete 15 other forums and carry out various tasks to bring an end product of the task given.

Example: All Gaming & RPG forums are given a game title where they write an article for. All members registered on Admin Junkies may vote for the best article. The most voted submissions wins the round.

As rounds and tasks pass by, you will eliminate your competition as the chart provided below. Together with your team you will be required to join a private group on Admin Junkies for your team only, where you can discuss and plan your submission to the task given.

hero.png

What are the 4 rounds ?
  1. Round number one consists of an award ceremony round where we have different categories setup and where members will be able to rate your forum in. Example: Best Theme, Best Domain, Best User Accessibility, etc.
  2. Second round will be an article creation on your niches subject.
  3. Third round will involve a graphic designing task.
  4. Fourth round is to be announced on a later date, to keep it exciting for the finals!
As said before, as a team you deliver a product where our members can vote for the best result. We encourage administrators to persuade their members to vote for them in this competition. This is meant to be a challenging and competitive event, and we expect administrators to rally their member base to support their favorite board. However, we do not tolerate any bad sportsmanship conduct such as board sabotage or cheating. Friendly campaigning is perfectly okay, and is something we hope to get people to vote for your board. If you believe that your board is the best, then demonstrate it by getting your supporters to cast their votes for you.

To keep it even more fair and hopefully refrain participants from cheating, all member votes will be cut in half.


Who can enter?
Any forum administrator can submit their forum and enter the competition. Remember that you will be required to join a private group on Admin Junkies with 4 additional team members to complete the tasks and rounds, so choose carefully! There is no minimum requirement for forums. You can enter your forum here: Submit


What can you win?
Top two finalist will receive the following prizes:

First place prize
  1. Cash prize of $150 via PayPal
  2. Premium Membership for 3 months on Admin Junkies
  3. Header advertisement (468x60) and a sticky thread for 3 months
  4. A credits increase of 1000 to use on services and exchanges

Second place prize
  1. Cash prize of $50 via PayPal
  2. Premium Membership for 1 months on Admin Junkies
  3. Header advertisement (468x60) and a sticky thread for 1 months
  4. A credits increase of 500 to use on services and exchanges

As we gear up for the "Battle of the Boards" competition, we wanted to take a moment to wish all of the participants the best of luck. This competition is a great opportunity for us to showcase the skills and talents of our community, and we can't wait to see what you all bring to the table.

We know that this will be a challenging and competitive event, and we have no doubt that everyone will bring their A-game. We encourage you to do your best, have fun, and most importantly, play fair.

Good luck to all of the participants, and may the best board win!

Best regards,
Aerodynamic

Thought I would give some small previews of the custom theme that is incoming in the next few weeks or so.

To keep you all hyped. :)

Also I need to add, Premium Members can see the whole progress in the Premium Lounge and together with the Staff and Premium we are gathering feedback and suggestions to make the best out of the custom theme. So thanks to everyone involved. :)

Greetings everyone!

I'm pleased to announce that we've taken our journey a step further! :) I want to welcome you all back to Admin Junkies 2.0. It's been almost 5 months since we've created the forum and I'm very pleased with the results and the community we've build together so far. I hope you all enjoy Admin Junkies as much as I do. If not, do tell me what to improve! I'm always all ears to improve your experience here. Our future is bright and full of adventures to come! :D

First of all, we've installed a new custom theme with both the light and dark version. I want to thank @DohTheme for creating this masterpiece. There may be some small bugs left, but we'll tackle them along we go. Feel free to point them out if you see some. I also want to thank the Staff team and the Premium Members for all their input during the design phase of the theme on how to improve it along the way. I hope you'll all enjoy the new theme! :)

Secondly, you'll notice that our layout has slightly changed. A quick summary: Community Management has been moved to the index page instead of a subforum. Forum & Web Support has moved to Community Cooperative. The Link Directory now has a few subforums to keep it clean and organized. Graphic Showcase has moved to the Community Lounge. Preferences & Generic Threads is a new subforum which should be self-explanatory. To keep the main General Chat forum to more "intellectual" threads. This is however in test phase and is not yet certain to be kept.

We've got new services! Graphic Requests are now ready to be made. So if you're in need of some graphics, feel free to use this new service. We encourage members to help out with the requests if they feel the urge to do so. All credits will be sent to the member who completes the request successfully. You are now also able to request a member review in the Feedback & Reviews section under the Link Directory. Due to the lack of a better place it's currently staying as a subforum there. We might add an official review service later. We might also have staff applications for the Graphic Requests and Reviews on a later date.


We'll be working on bringing new content (threads and articles) as well in the following days to keep you all entertained. :)

New Theme

We're excited to announce that we've just installed a new custom theme on our Admin Junkies! Our new theme is designed to give you an even better user experience, with improved navigation, faster load times, and a fresh new look.

With our custom theme, you'll find it easier to find the information you need, whether you're looking for new discussions or previous ones. Plus, our new theme is optimized for mobile devices, so you can access the forum on the go and stay connected with the community.

We've put a lot of effort into creating a theme that meets the needs of our community, and we're confident that you'll love it as much as we do. We believe that it will make your experience on the forum even more enjoyable and engaging. Read More...


New Features​

We've got new services! Graphic Requests are now ready to be made. So if you're in need of some graphics, feel free to use this new service. We encourage members to help out with the requests if they feel the urge to do so. All credits will be sent to the member who completes the request successfully. You are now also able to request a member review in the Feedback & Reviews section under the Link Directory. Due to the lack of a better place it's currently staying as a subforum there. We might add an official review service later. We might also have staff applications for the Graphic Requests and Reviews on a later date.

We've added forum battles to the layout. This is not your typical popularity contest which is often seen on other communities. Instead we've come up with a range of categories to battle in. See it as some Awards type of battle. We also will host some small contests on a frequently basis. We ask that everyone is fair in judging when a battle is ongoing. And not making this a popularity contest after all. If you wish to battle against another forum on this community, now is your chance. Make sure that you read and understand the guidelines. We've started off with an official contest: Best Forum Design/Theme

Also added a "Latest Happenings" forum. This is to provide us your community forum events, announcements, contests, news, etc.


Admin Junkies Hub

This is currently is a test phase. We've added a group / social community add on to Admin Junkies and we're calling it the Hub. Setup your own community within our community by making a Group/Hub about any niche you like. You can add discussions, resources, subforums, etc. within your Hub and thus create a mini-forum with an already existing community from here. Please note: there are still some theme issues with this add on, they will be fixed soon.


Member of the Month


We have rounded up nominations and voting for the Member of the Month February! Each month, we will be highlighting one member of our community who has made a positive impact and has contributed to the growth and success of our forum.

This month's member of the month is Strawberry - He has been consistently active in our forums, and has provided valuable contributions and insights in many of our discussions. Thank you, Strawberry, for being an integral part of our community and making our forum a better place!
