Would you be able to create a rough web page so we know what variables we have to work with in your project? From your description, I envision just a picture of some fantastical creature with 3 buttons, "Feed", "Play With", and "Put to Sleep". Functionality of those buttons:
Increment a counter up to a 100 (easy way for me to think of being a 100% full), once counter has hit 100, grey out button to prevent further feeding.
Also use to increment a counter that reflects a pet's "mood" (higher the better?).
"Put to Sleep":
I would maybe change the name to one that doesn't have connotations of euthenasia. But this I would have this button operate as a user's "Exit" button when they are done interacting with the pet. Clicking this would exit out from the script and write the necessary variables to a small cookie for the next time they visit.
Okay os her e goes.
I want to make a site for "pets". Similiar to neopets, but much more easy. It would go to people like my little sister. A pet (drawing) that can be played with and feeded.
The feeding would go like this:
they click the pet then there comes a selection
Put to sleep
and there would be meters that measure how hungry the pet is or how sleepy it is.. etc.
The fill the meter by clicking example: feed. Then the meter goes a bit up. the a message comes you have fed the pet. the meter has a maximum fed ammount. When it has reahced it can't me fed. but if none feeds it for a while it "burns" out..
Okay so i know how to make things like "this site has been visited # of times" and i'm going to use "This pet has been fed # of times" I need to know how to make the meter thing..
SO it would be a site where you can feed them.
I would use Java Script
