Hey guys..

 

I've been talking with some of the other staff and came to the conclusion that our IOTD isn't really cutting it.  The submission rate is ultra low.. and that may be for a number of reasons including us not promoting it more throughout the site.  But I'm just blown away by the response that #screenshotsaturday gets and I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel on this one.

 

I was thinking maybe it would be better to provide an interface for this twitter feed and have a little fun with it.   Let me know what you guys think.. I was thinking about fleshing the game out more into something utterly ridiculous.. like you get points for votes, then you unlock cool armor and weapons that do absolutely nothing but show up in the sidebar looking all stylish.  Perhaps randomly you can unlock "quests" as well.. non-serious quests of course that use the honor system.   "The town bully has stolen my favorite sheep, go out and search the far off cavern at the base of mount worthlessjunk and fetch me a rock to make me feel better.  Did you do it yet?  Press yes or no"   You get points for pressing yes!  Who knows, just stuff to be fun.

 

Here's the link so far:
