Every Thursday, Watching old episodes of Spitting Image

Print


; Hello World


Bit lacklustre, this week. Not a whole lot going on.
I mean, there's "some" activity on the site, but it's mostly all be contained within a few small threads.

Incidentally, I realised something that would make for a new "game" for the frontpage, the other day.
Take a famous quote, chop it in half, and let people write silly endings.

I spent about half a day sitting here, preparing small snippets of text. Took ages finding a nice big collection of quotes, then had to manually chop them down to size so they could be extended nicely.
Then I came to implementing the scripting, to integrate the new game into the site, at which point I realised it'd end up flooding the forum with threads..
Absolutely FLOODED..
I scrapped the idea, but will probably revisit it with a rethink at a later point.
Maybe just turn it into a static page, like the Poll Highscores, but then it's not really front and centre like I was intending it to be.
Hmmm..

So many of these ideas get abandoned due to how messy they make the forum.
Why can't there just be, like, a super awesome game that works like Polls do!?!
