Thread Necromancy Forum Game Code


Recommended Posts

That was not a forum-wide function, but related only in that one thread.  

Most forums have an underlying database, so if you understand the database structure, have the appropriate access to develop code and connect to the underlying database using credentials,  it is possible to write code that goes through the posts in the thread, and performs calculations on them.  It appears to me that the developer of that "game" did something like that, and likely automated the update process of the original thread post, as the statistics appear to be current, even though the "gaming" was initiated 4 years ago. 

Any approach to something like this would be entirely based on the underlying forum software.
