Don’t panic! I’m messing around with stuff, including avatars for bloggers and commenters. Specifically, gravatars. If you want to play, go to gravatar.com and register whichever email address you’ve signed up with here. Then you can upload an avatar, and the site will automatically detect it and insert it wherever you comment. Fun, huh? I’m working out the kinks now.
EDITED TO ADD:
Okay, everything appears to be working swimmingly. Yay! The addition of avatars has made something clear to me — the Skepchick forum has officially become redundant. The forum admin, Beleth, suggested to me last week that perhaps we call it a day, and after a lot of thought I think he’s right. We’ll soon have more bloggers updating the site multiple times a day, and the community is definitely centered here. Plus, everyone seems to universally dislike the Drupal format of the forum. Let me know if any of you would like to argue for its continued existence. Otherwise, it’ll be closed in the next few days.
