Auto-reply feature

This pretty much a helpful feature to Auto-reply in Direct Messages (DM), there are mods developers and modpack developers consistently getting DM by users with basic things "update your mod/or pack" or "I have an issue blah blah" I would love a way to auto-reply, tell users where to go/or what mods/ or pack is being updated and give them that information. This suggestion would prevent mod developers from being spam-like this https://twitter.com/Noppes_/status/1412488998342307844

    This would work well with the idea: CF-I-2464


    If implemented, this would work great. We could have a section in management for the content where we could set a form with buttons on it. If they are defined, when the user makes a comment they are presented with a form asking them predefined questions. When they click a button, they get the message.

    For example:

    [ ] are you making a bug report

    [ ] are you requesting a port or update

    [ ] something else


    So in the first option, if they press that button, they are taken to our issue tracker if defined.


    In the second, that might be the update/port response if defined. It might say:

    • “we are updating, please don't request we do so, but thank you for thinking about it” or

    • “we don't plan to port it, if you want to do, send us a dm to see about taking it over”.

    • And something else would be default if they clicked that they get to post a comment.
