This seems to be a good suggestion to me. I'll second that.

Excellent news, Steve! Let's look how it goes from here.

(still a lot to do on my next entry.... but it grows, it grows...)

   Heh, I haven't even started yet! But, I do have a great idea based on an 
image I found on the net, but whether I can do it or not is a different 
matter. I'll give it a go though. I'm really looking forward to this round.

   Oh, that sounds like a good idea. I'm seeing Colin this weekend so I'll 
discuss this.

     No, I don't think so, unfortunately. He had voting rights for stills 
but not animations, so everybody now has voting rights on both. But because 
his username was only 3 digits, (which it shouldn't be), I had to change it 
before the 'admin' side of things would let me change the rights for anims.

Less than 5 is just a thought. Ooo! I;ve had one :)

This round is not immediately obvious. I needed a couple of weeks to sort 
between options.
