Hey all,

After a very successful Open Beta period, we're finally ready to release vBAnswers v1.0.2 Gold to all users, both Pro and Lite.

vBAnswers is a mod that's especially helpful if you run a tech support forum, or any other forum where your users pose questions to other members for them to answer. It lets them quickly identify which posts have been marked as the solution to the issue, and also rewards users who post helpful posts via points, as well as trophies displayed next to their usernames.


If you like the product you can show your support by nominating it for mod of the month here: vBAnswers v1 (vB4) - vBulletin.org Forum, and also please rate it to help cancel out the users who 1 star our mods.

Major Features
Quickly Post Problems: Two quick forms lets users easily post new problems to the correct forum.

Quick Solution Identification: Flagging a post as Solution lets other members quickly identify which post solves the problem.

Guest Delayed Submissions: Guests who try to post a new problem will be redirected to the registration form, and as soon as they have registered or logged in, their problem will be posted in the forum they chose - even if they come back hours or even days later.
