A Shoutcast Widget for BuddyPress

    Hi,

    I’m thinking of a BuddyPress shoutcast-widget for the frontpage that works as a message rotator. It can be used to promote something like an event, a project or just draw some attention from other users/friends to your profile.

    The messages in the rotator could maybe fade in & out with the users avatar and their short textmessage. If you click the message link or avatar you get to the authors profile.

    If you want to add a message to the rotator you could do that by clicking a link and enter it in a box, click send and it would be published among 10 other messages. As new messages are being added the old ones drops out of the rotation. Maybe you could even adjust how many messages the rotator should use in the admin-section.

    Its just more live then a static forum and catches your attention once you enter the frontpage. A future feature could be the ability to “shout” just by sending an SMS to the service.

    Just some thoughts. :)

    A twitter client for BP is better?

    Sounds great to me. We have an ajax chat system on our board and our users couldn’t live without it. ^^

    It’s definetly very social and that’s what’s all about.

    EKine: is it a BP board? If so, can you tell me what you’re doing to enact the ajax chat there?
