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).

That's not really the intention of the mod. Our plan with this was for it to be like the facebook application, a place where people can go to kill time.

I like this. Looks like a fun mod. Need to think of the best way to use it now

When I installed. Have the red X's for the avatars and My who's online went blank. Might be mix matching with one of the other mods. Anyways I like this mod but had to disable until update then try again. Sorry DragonByte Tech

Is there a way to have only members that post show up? I have a lot of members that registered and never come back.. Then it always goes to them. How about an option like members with so many posts..
Just asking.. Works great for me but the red x for the avators when the people don't have one..
