I was directed to ask here, (thanks BTW) so I'm hoping I can get some assistance on a mod. I would like members to create an event. When members reply to the post they have radio option buttons to select whether they will attend the even or not. (It is like creating a poll in that the OP selects how many answers) The Post is then automatically updated with the RSVP yes and no answers. (Instead of the Topic creator having to go back and edit the post.)
To attempt to explain it further. I creat an OP by Selecting New Topic. As I type the Event name (=topic) I can open a calendar to select the date of the event. The Output topic title is something like: Sandella's Bike Night free trackday and suspension setup: 02-17-2010 07:00 PM - 09:00 PM
I then list any pertinent information in the topic body as any regular post.
I Submit the thread. When a user submits his/her reply, they click a radio button to select their option. (Similar to a poll) The result is time stamped with a brief response. The thread still posts the members reply sequentially but the OP now has a small section where it stamps information like this:
- Code: Select all

I hope I have explained this clearly. I got the idea from this VB site: http://www.socalmoto.org/forum/showthread.php?t=7486
The reason behind me having a feature like this is because my site uses event listings that members can search through. However, they cannot sign up for an event via my site interface. I figured it would be somewhat easier to take an existing date mod and change it to be able to do this. I appreciate any feedback or help.
