Great, could you put some code that close the thread after "X" answers from other users? than it would be perfect.

How can we set the cron to post this shortly after mid-night instead of posting at 5,6,7,8,9,10pm at night when it is the end of the day?

Same thing with me. My time zone is GMT, but it didn't post the thread until 1845hrs!

It also included a couple of people whose birthday is on the following day, but are on the opposite side of the world.

It's such a shame, as it could be such a good modification if it worked well.

Hi valter, can you please check why the mod is spamming the forum ? i mean yesterday the mod created 12 threads for 2 members i have in my forum. First it created double threads for every member, but then when i deleted the double threads , the mod created another 2. It kept doing it until the mode created 12 threads . I'm not sure if this has something to do with the last 2 updates on the 4.0.2 Pl 4

Had to disable it on my forum also. It was posting multiple threads at different times on the wrong day!

I installed it on April 1st and it went bloody nuts. Threads were EVERYWHERE!

Everyone assumed it was an April Fools joke and that's what I'm letting them think. Unfortunately I have since disabled this hack.
