Would the plugin need to do everything, or would I need a plugin that runs my "flash" program and returns an image? How does this work?
I don't know, since I've never written a browser plugin. This is why I pointed you to tutorials that can help you figure that out. My best guess is that the browser provides you some sort of rendering context into which you can render.
I know this wont get popular nor is it a way to make money but I would like to do it for experience. I would really like to learn more about Network programming, languages and interpreters.
Basically I want to be able to have a page like the following on a server and it display correctly in a Browser.
//Set the variables
// in this case a string called name to Waldo
str Name = "Waldo"
//Display Test "Where's Waldo"
"Where's" & Name
//Draw an image
One good way to prevent vote cheating, is to have users post the votes, and only count the votes of the users who have been members for more than 6 months and have a certain amount of posts. Or something along those lines. Just a suggestion.
