I ate a clock yesterday, it was very time-consuming.

Mod Text
The description of this mod is rather simple.  While it does explain what the mod does.  The usage of slang and short form such as "btw" does not set an image that portrays quality. While this is not really a negative as it may not be how the author wants to be seen. 

The code of the mod is done well.  The author has set this mod so it uses hooks and does not alter any files.  This is something we like to see.  A small irk in the language files and that is in the English versions, "id" should be "ID" however this is a just a VERY small thing.  The mod in its files does use comments well. 

As this mod does not make any file edits for themes, it ties well into any design, and will fit in well for a site.


Overall this is a really good mod, it will work for many forum genres as it has a simple but substantial impact.  Specially if the forum is needing this.  As it does not add code to the files it is a good mod just to sit their till its needed again.  Its small and uses very little space on a site.
Total Score
