• Mystic Feature Request

    From Fat Rastus@46:1/107.2 to g00r00 on Sunday, July 17, 2016 00:29:21
    Would it be possible to include an option to the MW command that would pull a template text file into the new message? I can think of many uses for such a feature.

    Thanks,

    Fat Rastus

    That is an interesting idea. I'll add it to the TODO list!

    I'd also be interested in hearing some of your ideas for how you'd use it,
    if you don't mind sharing!

    In this case it may not be all that difficult to do, so if you have some neat ideas I can probably make it happen rather quickly unless I hit a snag I'm
    not thinking about at the moment.

    It could be used as an extended new user questionnaire, or as a form that
    could be filled in by applicants for any number of things. I would like to use it so that SysOps could more easily signup for my gaming league. I do have an online php form for that purpose but signing up on the bbs seems to be more appropriate to the venue. Other uses might be to conduct polls, solicit responses on newly proposed features, and the like.. Also by presenting the user with a personalized email one might be more likely to get a response.

    Bug reports of all kinds.. It would be nice to put a command in the door
    menu section to make it easier for players to send feedback if a door crashed or if door command is unresponsive, etc...

    A list of a few questions might make responses a bit more helpful..

    (R)eport Broken Door

    Door Name:

    Briefly explain the nature of the problem:

    Etc....

    Have A Great Day!

    You can do any of this yourself, by simply using the menu editor and adding a new menu command. For the first request above, there's definitely a menu editor
    MCI to leave feedback, and you can state the reason (or subject for this example) yourself so the user is forced to use said subject/reason (specifically if it's from the door menu, or from the logoff matrix if you have
    one (as another example), etc) in their feedback to you. So something easy could be when you hit "[R]eport Broken Door" from the door menu, it could go to
    another menu you create called "BROKEDOR" which could display an ansi or some text telling the user to explain the nature of the problem in the following feedback email to the sysop. After they hit enter, the email to sysop editor would automatically come up with their name in the FROM field and "Broken Door Report" in the subject (forced by you via the menu editor). After they save the
    email, and the fallback menu set to your door menu (via the menu editor), they would be back at the door menu prompt.

    Other options to do this could be to make that menu command go directly to the email to sysop editor, or last but certainly not least, could definitely be done in MPL.

    Either way, the "modding" is completely up to the sysop, and I don't think there's anything (or at least that I remember) I've run into that /can't/ be done.

    Yes.. Yes.. but the topic was uses for a template that can be 'uploaded'
    into a message at the time it is created. I want it for reasons other than feedback about broken doors.. I am just offering ideas...

    I do too bud. I love everything about Mystic. Finding the time to completely switch over has been a hassle lately though.
