I very, very much like that idea, Hyper. That's what I was originally aiming for. Perhaps one that's slightly less "official" than I was trying for before would be appropriate and acceptable to Josh.
Maybe I could arrange it into the four parts of gameplay that you like to talk about, Flatfingers, with each part representing 33% of the game (33% because I don't think LT really has any "social" aspect to it
). As we fill them up, we could raise the "percent left to completion" meter. If I kept track of it myself, instead of trying to get Josh to do it, I think I might have more chance of convincing him.
I'll ask him if that's acceptable. After that I'll just need to keep it updated.
