Two things about the community page and user pages in general...

It would be nice to see a "More..." or "All..." option to see more than just the top 25 users, in case someone wanted to see where they fell for instance.

Also, the user pages: the URL has some GET information that seems sorta odd... like the latitude and longitude to some location (theirs? mine? not sure) and a "comingfrom=..." field that seems to change nothing when modified. Not sure if you care at all about those things, but just seemed like weird information to be passing via GET on every page




'All' on the community page might be a bit of overkill. Perhaps I should just list you (and your rank) on it ...

As you seem to have guessed, comingfrom is useless now. Just a remnant of an earlier iteration. I'll get rid of it ASAP. You pass (your) latitude and longitude to every page so I can (possibly in the future) customize pages for you based on where you are. Looking up lat/long take forever - so I just do it once when you visit the site for the first time and cache the results (and pass them around as GET parameters). It may make more sense to send them as HTTP headers (via cookies) though ...
