Re: Tagged style pet game?
I have built 2 components, 1 being a token system, and the 2nd being badges.
The tokens can be purchased via paypal, or earned from site admins. They can be used to by “gifts” to give to other members.
The badges are like setup like private gifts that have membership criteria, such as # of blog posts or # number of friends.
Setting up these wasn’t hard, and adding on a login action, to increase number of tokens if last login was over 4 hours ago wouldn’t be hard.
Buying and selling friends is pretty easy too, a little over done but can be built easily.
My suggestion take advantage of user meta and site meta to store values. These are also cached nicely so makes for slightly faster page loads.
