We just pushed our first update after introducing a signup fee on BonzoBox, and included in it is an improvement enabled by the signup fee: Much, much faster sign-in to BonzoBox. Now that we can count on people who are signing up to be honest members of the community we are comfortable turning off the system that tries to determine if accounts are being used for spam every time you sign in, and that system was slow.

Today’s update lets everyone stare at their smiling face beside their name. If you’ve got a BonzoBox avatar set, (Click “Welcome Back” and choose Profile to set your avatar), then we use that, if not we’ll try to show your Gravatar, and if that fails, well, we’ve got a backup image.

That’s it for today. Keep BonzoBoxing!
