Dragonbyte vBForms is a mod that forces users to fill out a form before posting threads in select forums.
For instance, you can use it to create a "support ticket" system like the one we have here on DragonByte Tech, or simply gather common information.
A powerful alert system lets you receive emails for each new form filled out, and usergroup permissions control who can manage the forms in the threads themselves.
3 Months: US $19.95 / £14.95 / €19.95
1 Years: US $29.95 / £19.95 / €29.95
Lifetime: US $44.95 / £29.95 / €42.45

Multiple Form Options
You can create an unlimited amount of form categories that allows you to ask any number of different questions on a per-category basis. You can also create separate statuses for forms, which lets you mark forms as "handled".
We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads
(Pro) Powerful Alert System
A powerful alert system lets you decide who should receive alerts for new forms filled out for select forums only. These fine-grained alerts ensure nobody receives unnecessary emails.
