Put yourself in the picture at Finextra

I've just replaced our photo uploader with a new and improved version which does a much better job of compressing and resizing pictures. The end result is much higher quality. So if you're a full community member - please try it out. Simply login and click on PHOTO in the right hand panel. Then follow the instructions.

Blog editor 'upgraded'

I've given our blog editor an overhaul behind the scenes after a couple of problems were kindly drawn to my attention. It should now do a better job of coping with material pasted in - previously it was occasionally falling over. Let me know if you have any problems with it!

In order to give a more accurate impression of how the interaction is going, we've changed the way comments are counted.
