Alright, that previous post of mine was bad for morale.
Just have fun, we'll adapt.
The only thing that I could think to add to this thread is an idea that crossed my mind while playing around with a couple of members.
One of the members thought it would be neato to take the 'Illuminati' cards from the card game and use them as flags for a custom Google Earth map
tour. I put one together very quickly and was very surprised at how cool it came out. Each card marked the geographical location of the incident
discussed on the card, along with a summary and links. You click on the crad icon and it takes you there ala Google-Earth.
Seems to me that it was a powerful tool to add to the UGC tool-box.
Now, of course, that means that ATS would have to be able to handle those GE files, I forget their extension at the moment.
Would it be possible to bring that to ATS? As something members could provide? Maps make everything better.
Also, some sites out there seem to allow users to post a 'thin' version of YouTube videos; just the 'bar' is visible and not the whole deal with the
screen image. It makes for sleeker threading and allows all of the UGC elements built in to a thread look smoother and more elegant, as though it all
belongs together, instead of the vids looking like big ugly punctuation.
Thems my idears.
