Rating algorhythm
Percy, I have a problem with your rating algorhythm. For many weeks I have been around 5.3 or so. That's fine. But then I posted the Lani Guinier obit and got 1 cheer, but for some reason my rating shot up to 7.8!!!
Seems a tad flukey. Maybe a bug you can look into?
I think I should still be around 5.3 or 5.4.
Since you keep a lifetime record of how many posts each EvC member has made, I would just divide lifetime likes by lifetime posts, and then maybe have a Last 100 posts Likes? And if there was a way to screen out certain posts that automatically get lots of likes, like birthdays of kids and similar kinds of posts.....

Re: Moving Average
I would change it from a 90-DAY window to a 90-LastPOSTs window, so old geezers who are silent for 90 days don't just disappear.

Re: Moving Average
Also it would be neat to see the All-Time leaders in total posts, say the Top20. And who got the Top20 Cheers (or, as I was calling them, Likes).

Keep the cheers.
Oh my! My facebook ways have corrupted my brain into calling them "Likes"!!!
Note: down from 7.8 to 7.0 now.

Avatar wont update
I select a new image on my laptop and hit UPDATE Avatar and it says "Thanks", but doesn't change it.
