    I have been listening and having to check some things out. Neorunner and some others and I had started discussing his "off the top of his head" post above. Lots of good information to discuss.

    First thing is, I've talked to the guy that enlarged the avatars for me, and I have asked him to put them back to normal and spacing back to normal = as if it had not happened.

    Shall we start from here?

    Fenyx- let me be the first to say, thank you for making this a group discussion. This is what we have wanted all along- involvement. neorunner, thanks for the suggestion, we like it.

    As I said when I became a mob, communication is key with us. Avatars? Yep, let's do it. We can and will rally from the silliness that past few weeks. We just need your help and you're showing you're listening and willing to apply feedback, so awesome. :)

    Donor badges are stupid.

    That's all. I don't have anything constructive to say.

    Yeah but if some people want them, then let them have them. Fenyx is this something a donor could request to have removed?

    If we could switch it to the eggplant + water drops emoji I'll be all turned around on the issue.
