I submit to you the following quartet of indisputable facts:
- Stack Overflow is for people who are bored at work.
- Having animations and video games are more exciting (and therefore less boring) than not having animations and video games.
- Chrono Trigger is the best video game ever made.
- Downvoting, closing and deleting things is the highlight of my day.
So I propose the following indisputably fantastic feature request:
Crono animated actions!
Crono is so manly http://welbog.ca/~inferno/images/crono/crono_run.gif
Crono will destroy you http://welbog.ca/~inferno/images/crono/crono_stand.png Instead of that usual boring grey downvote arrow turning orange, a little animated Crono sprite coming from offscreen to beat the living crap out of the question's (or answer's) score, dealing it 1 damage and reducing its HP accordingly.
Crono is a time-travelling ninja http://welbog.ca/~inferno/images/crono/crono_sword.png Instead of closing a question, Crono could fly down and use his special Confuse attack against it, leaving it injured and defenseless.
Crono is the natural predator of Lavos http://welbog.ca/~inferno/images/crono/crono_woot.png And for the coup-de-grace, deleting a question, Crono will appear out of nowhere and cast his ultimate attack, Luminaire, against it. Not even Lavos can stand up to the awesome obliterating power of Crono's Luminaire attack.
This new feature will make Stack Overflow much less boring to use and will draw in the retro-SNES programming crowd which, according to my made-up-just-now statistic will draw in at least 25% more totally rad programmers:

These new programmers will be naturally good at answering concurrency questions because they are easily able to grok the temporal distortions and causality loopholes that are commonplace in multithreaded systems.
Are you going to let Lavos destroy Stack Overflow? No! Help Crono help you, no matter what time it is!
