    Trivia Widget added to forum sidebar

    PSU has teamed up with Insticator.com to bring some "gamification" to PSU. The new game trivia widget you see on the sidebar is something we are trying out. Right now, it is a fairly simple trivia game. You don't have to create an account, but if you do, you can build up your score. Also has a VS mode where you can challenge others to a trivia duel, so to speak.

    As always, feedback is welcome. If too many folks find this widget to be disruptive then I will look into other implementations or just remove it.

    I did wonder what that was all about but you answered my question before I could ask it haha

    Good idea, do find it intrudes into posts a little bit but nothing to shout about massively!

    Yeah, I just changed it so it only shows on the forum home page. Didn't like seeing it on every page.

    Yep. So I'm hoping that this will be something that grows in features. I'd like, for example, for this to become more centric to the PSU community. Right now, the VS mode will put you up against some random person with an account. Would be cool if I could challenge a specific person. Kind of like how the mobile game, Trivia Crack, works. Also would be nice if it tied into PSU's login system like how disqus works on the home page content.

    Anyway, I'll push for this kind of stuff. We will see what happens.

    edit: also. if you use an ad blocker, you *may* not see this.

    It's a good idea and like you say if you could get it to link with peoples log in then would be an extra bonus as some can go head to head and maybe even offer prizes for the member top of the leader board at the end of the month!

    If you don't try it you'll never know!

    Adblocker doesn't block it as it's not an ad.

    I can see it perfectly fine.
    I don't mind us using this thing but I honestly think it's annoying on the side of the forums.. Would be nice if you can turn it off somehow so that it doesn't effect you if you're annoyed by it..

    Like others, I thought this thing was an ad at first. Messing with the GTA one, this one question is a bit... difficult?

    Also it seems to have broken the formatting? Check the wallpaper thread and click to expand an image. It runs off the center screen and disappears behind the site's background.

    Yeah the large images were being all cracked out. >_O

    Why are we trying to test new features on our ancient forum software?

    It isn't a vb plugin. It is just a script. Doesn't hurt. The problem with the images was actually related to the ad space that used to be there that I had dealt with previously and this reintroduced the issue.

    I kind of liked it, but the topics were sparse. Playstation, GTA, Uncharted, Dark Souls, and Final Fantasy. Would be cool if we had our own type of thing and users to add to it.
