I saw a suggestion like this on another forum, thought it could be a good idea for phpBB as well.
Suppose you have an small embedded image that randomly migrates around your boards.
You would initialize it by inserting it into some post.
When someone clicks on it, it would be deleted from that post, and moved to some other random post.
Maybe it could also tabulate the users who click on the image, and display the "score" somewhere.
I think it would be a great little way for people to have fun while reading through topics. Of course it would need things like only inserting itself into topics fairly current. I mean you wouldn't want it going into 2 month old topics that are dead, or possibly have the image only stay in one place for 24 hours, if nobody finds it, it moves to a new spot?
The way I see it, if people know about it and they can easily check the score or how many times each user has clicked on it, it would really get people who are bored to just hang out and read more topics. Plus it would be kinda fun IMO.
Also, admins could setup "games" for a set amount of time, and give the winner some sort of prize, etc. Lots of angles to take it, but it would be cool if something like this was done
Let me know what you think or if this has been already discussed before.
