I could see Zoo being cool with a side scrolling thing

Ou! That would be neat, and have each person contribute like an exhibit and maybe make it interactive.

Or a Wheres Waldo idea would be fun. If we just made a huge "Find It" pen.

That’d allow for lots of folks to contribute too, because we could have a tonne of elements in there.

Very true! Would we need to set a max size limit for each element? Usually "Find It" things consist of a lot of small images/characters/items.

Find it. Great!

If someone will write the script for it then ping me via twitter. I would really like to contribute for it. 🙂

Something that we could scroll/pan around (a bit like a Google Map) would be rad. Definitely agree on the fixed size thing too @rosieebob!

So what should we find with find it pen? Just one thing? Or when everyone adds multiple elements, each person include one that they want to be found? @linseyo What were you were originally thinking for it?

mmhm, I didn't really think that far ahead. But we could have each person include one item to be found + populate the empty space with an additional element (ie: I want a Hot Dog to be found so I'll make one instance of it, and I'd populate the blank space with a ton of Potatoes).
