Ever have trouble deciding on who to contact on a certain site to report an issue or something else? Now you don't! Introducing Pick-A-Mod! Written in Python 3, this super small 664 byte script is perfect for deciding on who to choose! Simply open it up, start it, and let it choose for you! If you are one of those people who don't know who to pick but are trying to avoid other people (you know who you are), then just continue cycling through the choices to get the person you want! When you finally have your staff member of choice, simply press "y", and you web browser will open for you, ready to take your message!

The secret is two-fold: First a list containing all staff member names. Second, the random.choice() module which make the selection for you! Because of this simple design, Pick-A-Mod can be edited to work with whatever site you want!

Pick-A-Mod is not available in stores, and can be yours only through this special offer, if the price is right!

I'm glad this will never be released, nor that I actually use it. Something... bad would happen. :P

In all seriousness, I whipped this up tonight just for this video. I felt like I needed to do something new, so I did. One (unintentional) feature you'll see in the video: If you type the username you want, most of the time it will bring it up. As you can see, it does not add the username of choice in the Recipient's Name field (I couldn't find a URL shortcut to do so), but I'm sure that could be fixed with a few if, elif, and else blocks.

Since there are seven mods, I can assign the other six to each side of a die. Pick-A-Mod, caveman edition D:

26 Lines? o_0

It should have taken 1... 2 at the extreme most, for the actually randomizing and printing of the result.

I was talking about the entire program, not just the randomize and print section. Actually, counting import random, that itself is only three lines, Everything else is the import webbrowser, and if elif blocks for the commands. ;)

If anyone cares, I'll post my code, if you are just dying to see it/use Pick-A-Mod (which I would hope nobody will want to use it. :P)
