At risk of sounding like the newbie I am....
I don't know enough about php to do much of anything, yet. BUT! I know exactly what I need (I think). MAybe someone out there has seen something along these lines:
It would be a php module that provide a custom thread tool. This thread would be customizble for a specific function:
ex. Imagine a queue of jobsteps. User must have accmulated enough site credits in order to ACQUIRE. User clicks on "ACQUIRE" button which removes the thread and transfers the "ownership" to the user.
- The posts within this thread are simply line entry posts produced by a user completing a webform. Poll, Reply, and other actions are disabled
- The posts themselves each have an action button attached to it. The button determines its value or state by some value within the post it is attached to.
- When a user clicks the action button attached to the post. The post is removed from the thread and its elements are placed in the user"s profile
