Anyway to have an option to define the interval of when the thread is started? For example, I could use this if it started an auto-thread once a month instead of once a week.

That is all controlled by the scheduled task. There is no time interval hard coded into the mod. So yes once a month is possible. In fact once a month is the longest possible interval and every 10 minutes is the shortest interval possible using the vbulletin scheduled task system.

Someone wanted a mod to post the same thread each week.. Maybe for a contest entry or something. So I made it.

I understand it would be good but none of that is going to happen in this mod. This mod was a simple mod for a simple request. I do not intend to add much, if any, functionality. Since I don't have much use for this mod myself, it's on the "back burner."

I don't understand... Auto up random threads? This mod creates a thread at a specific time- it would make no sense for it to be random- anything else would be outside the scope of this mod completely.

Can {Date} be used in the thread title, so as to clearly distinguish each new weeks thread from the previous?
If not, can you add a "date" option?
Can you add options for frequency; Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly?

The {DATE} idea is something I can put in the next release, but no idea when it may be. Frankly, it may be a while, this isn't really a mod with much demand.

The frequency is chosen in the scheduled task manager- you can change it from once every 10 minutes to once a month, with a lot of possibilities in between.

Quarterly will likely not be an option because it is not an option for a scheduled task and to add such an option would mean requiring the mod to alter the database- nothing this simple mod was even intended to do.
