Random Questions: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present version 1.0 of [DBTech] Random Questions.


The Random Questions mod is intended to increase activity in your forum, attract back old members, and encourage members to form friendships (and thus stay).

It accomplishes this by allowing/encouraging users to answer random questions about each other. The questions are settable by the admin (5 included in the Lite XML as an example). The questions can be anything from “What do you think {usernames} favourite game is?” to “Do you think {username} Wants a pet dinosaur?”. These questions usually serve to bring random people closer together, and have people communicate with each other who otherwise might not have. It's a great way to inspire closer bonds in your community (And, of course, having friends is one of the big reason people stay on forums).

I have reread the instructions many times but I don't understand what this mod does....I even went to the 4.0.3 post and reviewed the extra screen shots and still don't understand.

Can someone explain what it does?

Basically, after installing the mod you will get a new section in your AdminCP. Open this and add a few questions to the mod. By using {username}, you can insert the name of the username the question is being answered about.

You then need to open the community dropdown menu on your site. There you'll see a new link. After clicking this link you will be present with a screen with a random member of your site and a random question that you added. You can then answer the question about this person. After submitting, a new question with a new user will popup.

Basically, It lets members answer questions about each other when they are waiting for posts to be replied to etc. People get notified about it, and it could bring inactive members back to your forum (Someone answered a question about me? I want to see what it said!) etc etc.

The idea was taken from an *insanely* popular facebook mod.

This is a feature that was removed. I'll update the product file soon to reflect the changes.
