I do hope this is the right place to ask this ? .  I've got all the games installed,but for some reason, it's not allowing anyone to submit their scores once the game has finished. Did I miss something??

I've only had my site up for four days and i've learned so much (and drank lots of coffee for the late hours) My question is: is there a way to delete the scores in the arcade and start fresh each month?My plan was to have trophys for monthly winners.

Admin > Games
At the bottom of the page there are two dropdown boxes.

Choose Delete All Scores in the First Box
Choose "selected games" if you want to do it only for those you checkmark
Choose "all games" if you want to delete scores for all the games
Then click the "Submit" Button

If you mean adding more games than what is provided by SMF, that is not possible at this time.

Ok, we see your pain.  Now, if you can tell us what kind of problem you are having, perhaps we can guide you to a solution.
