So I was looking through the downloadable widgets for one that had riddles. I was somewhat surprised to find that there aren't any!

I know nothing about code so I thought I'd throw the idea out here for anyone who would be interested in the idea. I'd love you for it!

Could be something like riddle of the day. Personally, I prefer "what am I" riddles. Such as, What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?

Thanks!

Hi,

sounds interesting. Shouldn't be too complicated to implement. The main problem might be to collect the riddles. They'd either have to be collected from a site (most convenient, probably) or they'd have to be collected by the developer and delivered with the widget itself (not too practical, imho).

Yeah, getting the riddles from a site would be the best route. There are a number of them out there so finding one shouldn't be a problem. Maybe an rss feed could be developed for the widget to use.
