Perhaps an API could be developed (not an immediate need) for Kirupa/the Forums for various services. For example, the ability to “login” externally (check your login, more than likely) to submit something to a site attached to your kF username (on the lines of that kBlogsNetwork idea thing). Similar to facebook, you’d have IPs and Domains attached to the API such that no other IP/Domain (server) can connect the API to promote security. API usage would be granted to select users on a trust basis.
It’s kind of a stupid idea, but I can see a ton of uses with access to some of the database elemnts of the site.
