    If it was a standard plugin, the developers would make sure that the plugin is compatible with upgrades. It is maintained together with the forum. A 3d party plugin is maintained by the external coders who developed it, so if they decide to move on in life ... the plugin is left behind. When the forum is then updated, the plugin might cause the forum to fall apart.

    Week or so in and all it's done is what a few thought it would ...... raise an epeen status of those who talk the biggest load and have plenty of sycophants. I would have so much more preferred a system that singled out worthy people for the rest of us to notice. Oh well.

    I'm inclined to agree.
    Procrastination. I'll find a signature for this later.

    Yes, I am worthy. Give me Gold stars and a Galaxy Tab....

    If that can't be done, the system as it stands is utterly, utterly pointless.

    I wanted to change my sig to:
    "You like me, you really like"
    But decided against it.

    It seems to have turned into a mutual admiration society. I don't have a problem with that as long as the the blocks are limited to a single row with no glaring colours or effects, it's pretty unobtrusive ATM but I'd like a option not to display it in my User CP

    As you say it seems pointless.
