Leapfroglog Now With MonsterID

MonsterID for Kars Alfrink

Just a quick note to let my readers know the comments are now adorned with cute little MonsterIDs. I used this cool plug-in to generate unique monster pictures based on the email address a commenter leaves behind. Curious what yours looks like? Leave a comment and see. The image shown here is my monster (based on kars at leapfrog dot nl).

I used to have gravatars, but they didn’t work as well because hardly any commenters actually have a gravatar registered. These MonsterIDs do the hard work for the user. I like having images in the comments to be able to quickly see who commented and which comments are from the same user. It also helps tell apart people that leave behind the same name.

And, of course, these monsters look great!

Scott: it’s awesome. Commenting for the first time feels kind of like a lottery! No problems on this end with the install.

Tom: yes, an amoeba. MonsterID knows your true identity.

I like Peter’s MonsterID, can I have it?

Posted by Tom on 19 February 2007 @ 2pm

Looks like the MonsterID also depents on the client’s IP?

Posted by Tom on 19 February 2007 @ 2pm

Nope, you used a different email address earlier, hence the other monster. And no monster swapping, sorry!
