If you ever wanted someone to select either their favorite team, music, player, or even select a clan on registration you may find this hack useful.

When you go to ACP --> vBPicks and add a new "team" it'll automatically create a new usergroup. You'll need to configure the new usergroup's forum permissions if you want each usergroup to have different sections to access.
Once an user chooses something from the drop down box(es) they'll be automatically placed in the respective usergroup.


What I plan on doing

Convert hard text into Phrases
Switch to have field required or not

I hope some of you try this out even though it's in Beta.

Sounds interesting, but maybe you could give us some uses for it.

I have a perfect use for it: create different groups for different soccer teams and let them compete. However, how do you deal with existing users?

Try having the user go to http://www.haitiwebs.com/haitianforums/profile.php?do=editusergroups

I forgot to mention that when you create a new sport and list the teams you can create images to each team.
Say you you used "NBA" for your sport and you list every team. In the "sport" directory you can upload a small image for each team. Save the image the same exact way as you spelled the team's name.

This is a mod ive been looking for. Its great that you left it up to the user to decide what they want as well as how many. wd.

Only thing holding me back from an install is a question:

Does this display in postbit at all or only in the users profile? A screenie of where it is housed would be cool.

This mod could be very useful for me.
Could this mod be extended in to a sports prediction mod???
We have a lot to sports discussions and obviously members "compete" during each season. Would it be at all possible to use this and move it towards a complete sports prediction mod? Something like a sports fantasy manageer. Just a query.

This mod will rock, Ive been using a similar mod on my forum so users can choose a player type.

Nice work will check it out.
