one is really ambitious, but i think it would be really cool…the problem with cheers is that they sometimes aren’t available when we have lots of free time and are available when we don’t. i want to create something that would allow us to create lists of what we’d like to cheer and then automatically check for cheers and cheer from the list. i think a program like this could go a long way toward reducing cheer addiction.
ideally, i’d like to have rules like “if the cheer came from user x, then cheer one of the goals i’ve said i want to cheer on user x’s list”, and otherwise cheer from the general list.
the problem is i don’t have much of an idea of how to implement some aspects of this, such as an easy way to let users mark which goals they want to cheer (maybe a small window that can be opened beside the main one when browsing?) and ways to look at stuff on the site that doesn’t involve parsing the html. (maybe i could use the api, but last time i checked it didn’t have anything about cheers.)
does anyone have related comments, ideas, or suggestions?
another idea i have seems like it won’t be too difficult so maybe i will do it in a few weeks (though things are usually more difficult than they seem) and tell you about it then.
and of course, the already cheered script could use improvement, but i was hoping the robots would see that people really wanted that feature and implement it, so i didn’t want to waste time working on something that wouldn’t be useful for much longer…maybe i will try to see if they plan to work on it.
there are also two non-43t related web apps i want to create…
