One thing I'd really like to do on my site is display a random tip or message to each user per session. I'd like to optionally like to place the message on the side bar or as a message bar at the top of the screen (similar to NoahY’s notification message in his FAQ plugin).

This feature would be extremely effective in encouraging user to join in as well as giving them tips on how things work.

Examples:

“Come on, don’t be shy, ask your first question”

“Vote an answer up and you’ll receive 30 points”

“If you see a poor question, vote it down, help keep this site free from rubbish”

In my experience, prompting a user to do something is the best way to encourage interaction.

Has any progress been made towards this?  I'd also like a random note rotating between several messages for exactly the same reason.

I recently added a div box that slides in if you scroll down, check e.g. here:

Maybe this is something for your users too, to motivate them?!
