    From Higher Power@VERT to All on Tue Mar 23 08:53:00 2004
    I was just wonderng how to ask a person a question and depending on the yes
    or no answer they would set or unset a user flag (the A-Z thing)

    I figure it would be good for the people that say dont like to see games
    that the main theme is drugs or sex... i was thinking of a use for them one night and that was all i could come up with, login screens and stuff could
    all sort of be customized for each user...

    i figured i'd share my idea too see what you all think.

    Try something like

    COMPARE_ARS FLAG 1P
    IF_TRUE
    TOGGLE_USER_FLAG 1 P
    END_IF

    which should toggle the flag OFF (in case it was already on), then follow with maybe

    NO_YES "Want Porno?"
    IF_FALSE
    TOGGLE_USER_FLAG 1 P
    END_IF

    or perhaps

    YES_NO "Want Porno?"
    IF_TRUE
    TOGGLE_USER_FLAG 1 P
    END_IF

    depending on whether you want DEFAULT response to be NO or YES.

    I'm currently setting up a similar system to grant or revoke access to interBBS games, so users have to apply to interBBS games with a simple yes/no question, so I can check if they're properly registered (real names entered, etc..) before granting access to certain games.

    So, if flag3 A is set, that means they're flagged as "applying" for extra access, and if flag3 R is set, that means they have to re-enter their real names, etc..

    This kind of thing could also be used for a login event to prompt users to revise improperly entered information.
