Sure.

IMO it would be best done through a mod for the forum and restrict it to registered users.
Or I can write one without any authentication (but more subject to potential "security" issues). This would take probably the same amount of time as installing the mod.

What do you prefer?

I know that asur.org/ulthuan, the old warhammer high elf site had one as well, which basicly showed the 5 most recently replied to topics. But with the forum divided with nonguild/guild forums, this might be a bit hard.

Zusterke, i wouldn't want to risk having spambots find out the site and spam the box full, so i'd suggest registered users only :)

The cool part about writing it yourself is that it is unlikely they'll find the box in the first place.

Not that I mind installing an SMF mod for it ;) I'm not sure that can be made available outside the forum though (read 'will cost more work than I may consider worth').

if it looks at your login information thats not a problem. You can probably AJAX this feed
Wintermute - lvl85 Resto/Moonkin Druid || Neuromancer - lvl80 Blood/Unholy DK || Sprawl - lvl76 Bm Hunter

What is the difference between you and a mallard with a cold? One's a sick duck..... I can't remember how it ends, but your mothers a whore!
