I want to share an idea for a plug in that I may develop if others are interested in the idea as well. Basically, I want to make it possible to display a simple swath of text above a blog entry with a disclaimer, or link to a full disclaimer. I imagine some rudimentary way to do this, such as considering any IP address that has visited 5 or less times to be new. I realize this fails on proxies, but I think it is well enough to work most of the time.
My motivation is to ease someone into the blog space who may come upon it the first time. It can take a little time for someone to acclimate to a person’s writing “voice”. I also think it may be helpful if someone is concerned about impressions from a potential employer or other sensitive situations to direct a newcomer to a disclaimer before delving into the content.
Does this interest anyone else?
