Help needed developing DP-Achievements plugin
I’m working on a plugin which provides Achievements similar to World of Warcraft or Xbox Live to BuddyPress. Unimaginatively, it’s called DP-Achievements.
I am still working on a biggish part of the UI, but I have the admin and the main logic all in place and working. What I really need help with are some ideas for Achievements. The example I am developing with is triggered when you post a message to a wire.
Obviously, this is a rather boring idea, and while I have quite a few ideas that I have thought of, I was wondering if people here had any good ideas. To try to keep any discussion I’m lucky enough to get here focused, there are two requirements for ideas:
- Has to have a clearly defined trigger mechanism.
- Has to be possible with an out-of-the-box installation of WPMU and BuddyPress.
Good ideas: updating your picture, leaving a comment on a hosted blog/forum or wire post, register with an @gmail.com email address.
Bad ideas: log-in with an OpenID, mark your home on Google Maps or upload a picture to your photo gallery. These are bad because there is no way to log in with an OpenID, mark your home on Google Maps or upload a picture to your photo gallery **because none of these features are provided in a standard WPMU & BuddyPress installation.**
Big thanks in advance to anyone who suggests anything.
