May I suggest that the "My Profile" link be changed to "My Contacts". [a little more inside]

Reason: when you are logged in, clicking on your own name brings up the "My Profile" page in a single click. Access to the "My Contacts" page - which is as useful to single-click-link as "My Posts" and "My Comments", IMHO, is a consistent addition to the top level links, and leads to no loss of functionality, given the easy access to "My Profile" through the user name.

hmm. Not a bad idea. The My Profile is there only because a few users reported that they couldn't find their own page very easily.

Maybe just nuking My Profile and not adding anything? The header breaks down at widths below about 850 pixels, killing the extra link would make it 800 pixel compatible. Okay, maybe it doesn't really matter...

Yeah, I do wish it was narrower.

Lemme nuke it and I've already added both to the footers, so it'll always be handy.

That works out nicely because now the footer's left hand column lines up with the Firefox button.

yeah, I dig the footer.

Niiice. I predict CSS complaints today, since you changed the id or class of the MeTa sidebar and of the hypertext buttons in the comment box. Things looked a little munged for me until I forced a reload of the stylesheet with a shift-ctrl-R.

Wow- that was quick. Thank you very much.
