Ask-v0.4b-No more n00b questions!

As an admin, you may have been asked questions like, "How do I make money?", more times than you can count. Not anymore! Ask enables you to add questions to a file, then users can ask them.

I am no longer working on this project. It might still run on servers though, there are no ties to the game of Minecraft itself, only to Bukkit. If you would like to take this project over, please email me at (my user name)[email protected] -just be sure to replace the (my user name) with my actual user name.
