Been working on a few things lately, including the arduous process of moving into a new house. In the meantime, however, I’ve managed to knock out a new WordPress plugin I’ve (tentatively) decided to call “Dunce Cap”.
Dunce Cap was inspired by this plugin by Travis Hines. It allows you to “tag” your commenters with an image.
Currently there is only one image/tag built-in, though you can easily add you own using the Options screen. See the comments to this post for a demonstration, and if you install it, Read the “readme.txt” — it has some important info. As this is a beta, it currently requires one extra step before it will actually do anything.
I fully intent to add more built-in tags, and to rename this to something more generalized (and less negative). Suggestions are welcome.
[Update: The full plugin is out under a new name: Comment Spotlight.]
