    Just made a quick change to the blogs page to display a member's avatar beside their blog. It looks cool, check it out :smt023

    Yes it does. I found the blogs page to be lacking personality so this sorts that out.

    Also an update on the issue with the blog views being artifically inflated by search engine spiders... it seems to be very accurate now. You can be 99% confident now that views show human views :)

    It looks really nice Frank. Thanks.
    It is amazing how many ways you come up with to improve this site. Us common folk are so pleased with it anyway that we don't think about it needing to be improved, then you change/add something and we realize that wow that is even better.
