I'd really like to see the board put on a chat feature with assignable single-channel microphone and real-time scrolling chat. If we had that, the possibilities could be greatly expanded.

We could host talks from gaming experts, trivia games, contests, topic conversations with a pass-the-mic so people could talk instead of type, live drafts for sports leagues, all kinds of stuff. If the intent is to build participation, more ways to participate would top my list.

Boy, are you a killjoy. I'm talking 20+ year old technology. It's not rocket science, or even hard programming, to have a chat room. Doesn't have to host video. Or even audio, if that's too much bandwidth. Can still do most or all of what I suggested.

I'm still not crazy about this bottle of change idea but here is a picture of it.



Sorry to go off on a tangent, but you can see the image is off by 90 degrees. I know full well how to use image editing software. However, when I rotate an image, the rotation doesn't survive an FTP transfer. Does anyone know how to truly rotate an image?

Wouldn't it be easier to get HTML to render the image as rotated than to actually rotate the source file?

Yes really At the very least it will take a very lot of research That why I suggest ties be broken by earliest entry ot a time limit be posted. Starting the contest at a specific time would drive traffic,

I know how to do that but this forum doesn't use HTML but its own formatting language that doesn't have a feature for rotating pictures.
