Lincoln, you need to install a poke function on Icrontic. It would be glorious.

This war will never end!
It begins. A great war in time.
A Time War if you will...
What's interesting about the 'poke' feature on Facebook is it's strictly 1:1 relationships, which is all Facebook truly cares about. As a forum feature I think it's a lot less interesting, but I've been brainstorming on a "pass the bauble" idea for a couple years now. The key is, if you're going to add a fun feature like that (and blow a ton of time on something silly) it should have the goal of building the community core, not enabling folks to click at each other privately.
