Maybe a "you have spent too much time here" warning would be useful, just as a reminder that there are things outside the comptuer room. Maybe an automated message that chimes on every hour that is spent on the forum!

A Pm to everyone with more than 150 posts seems appropriate.

How about 'hey, go and get a life?'

Or 'stop staring at your computer screen and go off and do something less boring instead?' [Prize for anyone to spot the reference there...] [DOn't ask me what the prize is, I haven't thought of that yet]

Or 'go and practise your fencing you lazy s*d'?

No very bad idea, this is one of the few pleasures i've got stuck in the desert of Kuwait.

Trouble is, if you got a message saying you spent too much time on here, what's the first thing you'd do?

Yep, you'd post about how you really don't have a life and the admins should get off your back and by the way did anyone see that thing last night which had a bit of fencing but they were doing it all wrong...

...

...

Okay, I really have to go now, as I have things to do.

No, maybe just one more thread...

Congratulations! :)

Prize: no, I still haven't thought of anything :( I'm about as inspired on that one as I am for a witty name-sub-heading thingy (whose technical name I've forgotten)

How about some nice smilies:
