Take a look at the prop challenge archives here:

http://www.hauntforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=21

Donors and prizes are listed for each contest that had prizes, which was most of them except for the couple most recent contests.

This is a known issue with vb4, we have a fix for it. If you send me a pm with the username you use on the other site I can work on getting your account status restored.

Well, thank you ZF for giving this site life....it's such a great source for prop making, scene setting ideas, photos and fellowship for all things Halloween. For the most part the members here are super supportive, intensely creative and some of the best people I know. I've never asked for help here where I did not get help from many, many members, including offers to send me things that I would need to complete a prop.
Welcome to the forum, new owners. I hope you keep the integrity of this site I've come to love, and please don't dilute the core values of this site and the members here. In all honesty it's the members that make Hauntforum what it is. I totally get it about having to run ads to pay the bills, for nothing in this life is free.....well....except maybe wire coat hangers, cardboard, scrap foam and occasionally, the odd wig head.

I'm guessing Haunt Forum will now experience the same ad banners all over the place?
I know I haven't been around much myself these days for various other reasons so maybe my voice here doesn't hold much weight. But I'm gonna second this.

I know ads pay the bills for a lot of sites. But these days ads have become overly intrusive on simply enjoying the content of a site. And for me anything more than a banner at the top of each page is incredibly intrusive. Nothing worse than scrolling through a tutorial post than to be greeted by ads posing as pseudo posts right in the middle of a thread. And to make it worse, rarely have they been targeted based on the content I'm reading. I'm seeing a LOT of this over at Halloween Forum since the transition and it hasn't really gotten any better.

The other problem that started happening were spam posts of the worst kind. I usually get my updates via RSS in my reader which doesn't block spam or ads. At least when I'm on site my ad blockers have been fairly and mostly effective. And I can selectively not read the spam.

Again both of these topics have been discussed ad nauseum (pardon the pun) on Halloween Forum with a lot of empty promises to fix it but not much done about it.

Zombie-F, I just logged in, and I could cry! If you haven't totally given reign, please choose another company. I cannot log into Halloweenforum at all, it's totally ruined. I truly hope that this does not happen to your site, as well. This was my last hope for a real Halloween forum.

And here start the ads..... One of the things I loved about the forum was that the adverts were matched to the colouring of the forum and not too big so they weren't distracting. Plus they were probably less of a drain on my download as most of the site is text based. The forum always loaded even when our internet was shaped.

I'm getting a noticeable slowdown now in the site loading on both my iPad and my Windows-based laptop. I've also gotten the "a problem occurred with this web page, so it was reloaded" event a couple times today.
