Keeping everybody straight - a request

With the recent population explosion at Munuviana, it's getting harder to recognise what sites people are from just by their first names (usernames). This can be particularly difficult here when folks post their questions and the person who wants to help can't tell what your blog address is from the post. Moveable Type can automatically take care of this by turning the 'posted by' link on each of these posts into a link to your blog, but you have to tell it that's what you want. (By default, it just links to your email address, which isn't always instructive.)

So, a request to all MuNu's. Go to your main menu page (its the first one that shows up after you log in to administer your blog) and click on the Edit your profile link on the right hand side of that page. On the line that says Website URL (optional), fill in your blog's address ( While you're there, you can look at the Nickname box , as that's the name that will be displayed in your 'posted by' on your blog, and here at Munuviana. (Update: Sorry, the Nickname field is NOT currently being used as your 'posted by' name here, and it's not enabled by default on many of the basic templates. Changing that will be the subject of an upcoming post.)

If everybody does this, I think it'll make these group areas much more useful to each other.

And if any of this isn't clear, just ask.

Couldn't we just have a password protected page somewhere where we can have a list of everyone name (first name only or whatever) and their blog.

Not sure why you'd want to go through all that extra work, for something that's easily handled automatically? (Especially since someone would have to create & update a separate list as well)
