The chat room for Science Fiction & Fantasy - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe has a Daily floof pinned to the side of the chat. Which is a link with the current date to an image of a cute animal.

Why don't we do the same, but call it the Daily Pet?

Any room owner or mod from any site can pin the message. One can be inserted each day and the old one unpinned.

  • I like :) Where would the pics come from?

    With 13 - 17 cats, and no end of antics, I could probably run my own cute pet feed. Not that I'd want to, but with the suspected number of active chat users a new pic every day should be easy to maintain.

  • We need to formulate a system- so one person isn't taking over i.e. me - I'm happy for people to ping me to pin stuff, maybe people should just post there pics and ping a mod

  • If the idea is accepted, then set a window of time (UTC) when users can post their "pic of the day". Everyone can star any pics they like. Set a different time, an hour or two after the window closes, for end of voting. Then pin the one with the most stars. Helps users get the "talkative" and "outspoken" badges at the same time. =D

  • Of course, a score of 2 isn't decisive yet either.

    Would this still be an option for the mobile version? I've had some issues using the mobile stack, specifically with click and drop options and formatting working correctly - example- for nominating mod- my mobile version wouldn't auto format for me to fill in :(

  • I don't use the mobile version @ChristyB. I've heard a lot of people complain of difficulties with it
