Not sure where to put this, but thank you Deepika for adding the member's avatar photos onto the contest participant list!
Sometimes the names are so hard to remember that you can't work out if you welcomed a new 'signee'.

The photos really help.

Sandy,

thanks for noticing! When I do little tweaks like this I wonder if anyone is going to notice or not. Glad it helps. I also made the images on the contest gallery bigger.

I noticed! Thanks.
edit:
oh! and even cooler. I just sussed out that they are listed in order of signing up! (sorry a bit clueless on number things).
that will be helpful!
When I looked after the fabric stash contest with over 100 members, I had to use the edit-find feature on my browser to discover who had done what. I know the date is usually bold for anything done on that particular date. But if your (my) time zone is different, often people had done things after I went to bed.

Anyway, you are a star. Thank you very much.

ThinkGeek: "E-mail has been around since before computers. At first, e-mails were written on rocks and thrown at neighbors. CC-ing a rock e-mail could be dangerous for an entire village. Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around."
