    I'm looking for something similar to the Easy Forms vB mod that would allow me to create forms that the members would fill in, which would then post as a reply to a given thread or start a new one. I'd be very grateful to see this on XF. Thanks! :)

    You don't want the data saved to a structured database ?

    Let's say your form was this:
    Type of Trombone: Dropdown (small, medium, large)
    Color of Trombone: Dropdown (silver, gold, pink, other)
    How many years have you played: Textbox (number 0-99).

    So when a form was filled out, this data was posted to a thread.

    Digitaldoctor has a Large Pink Trombone and has played (with) it for 9 years.

    Do you want all that information in a database ?
    So you can produce statistics ?
    What if your site had Trombones for sale, would you want to do a mailing to all the Trombone users ?

    If another question was:
    Do you give Trombone lessons ? Choose: (Y/N).

    Would you want Trombone learners to be able to contact your Trombone Teachers ?

    The idea here is: Do you want the form data stored such that you can use it ? or just post the text to a thread ?

    Ah; I see. Yeah, that would be useful--I'd be using it for people to make charts of their favorite songs, so that'd be nice to see which songs were most popular from the users' charts without having to do it myself.

    (also, lol at pink trombone... :p)
