As you might know GO is using Q2A for running this site. So, now we are requiring many features to be added and one of them is the ability to add new user field types mainly Checkbox and DropDown Box. So, if anyone is capable he/she can do it. The code is in PHP/MySQL and plenty of examples you can get from the below link. This plugin if done well will be contributed to Q2A site as opensource but you will be paid Rs 2000 also.

@Arjun sir, I've set up the q2a platform on my localhost and I'm going through the codebase to understand the flow of control. Sir, is there a slack channel for Gate Overflow? If there isn't, I would suggest creating one as it can be used for future developments too. It will be much easier to communicate.
@Arjun sir, I also need to know how you added the current GATE related fields in GO. The basic q2a platform has no such fields.
Yes there's a slack channel .will tell u the details. The current fields are added from the Admin interface .
@Arjun sir. I'm still on it. The whole code-base is split into a lot of files. I'm still figuring out the whole flow and how the elements are rendered. There is no clear documentation on the whole platform so I'm having trouble.

So far, I've reached the function that is being called on the admin's add fields page. The 3 types of fields (single-line, multi-line, and URL) are kind of hard-coded. Trying to find a hack around it.
Sorry. I missed this comment. I'll check the code and get back.
