Default Widgets for profile -- avvy has an idea, oh my!

'Kay so, I think this would be pretty cool.

What if we were able to add little widgets on to our profiles? It would be a way to spice up our profiles a bit, and it'd be fun as well. Now, I wasnt thinking of us being able to add games really, more like having an option to have a little text box on your profile where you could say anything really. Like if a lot of people said happy birthday to you, you wouldnt have to respond to each one of them -- you could just say in that little text box, "Thanks for the birthday wishes, everyone!" An option to add, as others have suggestion, your current mood and status would be cool.

Yes, I've taken into consideration that this could be hard and it may not even be an option at all. But there's really no harm in suggesting it, correct? If you have any ideas for possible widgets on the profiles please share...

Gracias

This is a point of etiquette rather than a comment on the widgets. If you receive a lot of birthday wishes on your profile, the polite thing to do is to go to each well-wisher's profile and thank them individually. Yes, even if there are 100 well-wishers (be thankful that you're so popular ) A widget on your profile thanking your 100 well-wishers would be inadequate in my opinion, it would be rude.

The widgets are a great idea, although I do agree with Webberlily. But the games would be fun!

Ah, yes, you're right Webberlily... I never thought of that. Posting on all those people's profiles would be a better thing to do. However, that little text box could be used for other things, maybe... if the person is possibly going away for a few days and doesnt have room in their signature to put this, they could put it in the text box, right?

And thanks for posting, Kuseria + Webberlily.

I like this idea, Avvy!
It'd be nice to have a sticky not pad too. I have one on my cell phone; it's just a little yellow pad that you can type a short message in. For WI, we could enter notes to other memebrs like if so-and-so will be gone, or reminders for those who own threads that are active all the time or have friends' birthdays (WI Friends). I'm not against putting games or things that are animated on for widgets, but I'm not really a fan either... maybe if it's not one that slows the whole profile down. One game that might work really cool---though I doubt it's an option--- is a tile game. I'll post an example because I have no way of explaining it...

Good idea, in a way. But what if a page someone loaded with widgets, and was a mile long? It could hurt the cookies on someone's ccomputer and make WI slower. There are some pros and cons to this idea. =/

I like this idea I don't think we should be able to embed our own games, videos, etc since that would require HTML and could open WI up to hacking, but picking from certain games that were already approved sounds awesome to me. We'll have to see if it's compatible with vB though

I love this idea! It could be so useful and fun, but might slow WebkinzInsider down. . I hope that many people don't apply a lot of widgets though. . then the page takes forever.

Perhaps it could be more like Windows Vista, where there is a sidebar, for example, where the profile friends, etc. is?

Rep for the idea.

That's what I was trying to say, but couldn't remember the names... Window's Vista's Layout. Thanks, Badena!
