    Oh. :-(

    Every time? A weekly, even monthly, cron job would suffice, perhaps :-?

    Yes, every time - because if we ran through and user "A" wasn't a forum
    member but was a project member, the next time we'd have to check them
    again. It'd be more efficient to do that than to maintain a table of
    "here's who we already have updated", and then there are the exceptions.

    Yes, a cron job would suffice - the bigger problem is in messing with the
    database tables - if/when vBulletin updates their database schema (which
    is quite complex), we'd have to regress the software update against it to
    make sure our code wouldn't break anything before applying any update.
    That's the larger concern.

    Odd, I thought Kim had changed it to the requested title. I'll get in
    touch with him and see what he did - I think I know what was missed.

    No, but it would be nice to display it. Not that openSUSE memberships
    fills much of a purpose, IMHO...
    You should, close by your name in the signature.

    The avatar? I just played around a bit. It is on the standard list,
    there are about 300 of them. The browsing is tedious, though, only about
    6 are shown each time.
    Yes, the hat or the hair in particular! Not seen it before, so it gets the job done i.e. "Carlos was here".

    Your two right "feet" returned along with all the other badges. I quite liked it without the badges. I don't much like the feet, so I will need an exit strategy before they arrive here.

    I see now that where it's at is what ultimately was requested.
