  1. I guess I should have posted my comments here, not on the other page…

    Making the name of this person blink is a cute little geeky wink but it goes against the spirit of “about:credits” where everybody, like in a commune and regardless of their contributions, is displayed the same. There are so many pieces of technology that were implemented for the first time ever by a Mozilla contributor. Why giving such a prominence to the blink tag? What about the Table guy? The Javascript guy? What about me? I spent countless hours on something as stupid as getting the H1-H7 font aspect ratios right in strict and quirks mode on the Mac. Can I have my name in H2? (please don’t) Should we display everybody’s name in a size proportional to the number of lines of code they have contributed like a tag cloud? But then what about folks like mtoy and tara who probably never checked in anything but contributed in an unforgettable way? It’s a can of worms we might not want to open.
