New instructables-card style stat reader? Answered

Today, I noticed that I now have an avatar that resembles the instructables cards that gmjhowe and jayefuu have been advertising.  I personally like this, as it has self-updating stats, unlike the printed cards.

Keep up the good work.

EDIT- noticed that members now have a bar below their avatars in comments announcing the number of ibles they have, and their stats show up when you hover over that bar.  Personally, I find this rather distracting and unnecessary. 

Double edit- Can someone explain the color coding system that I've seen?  I have a red bar, while some other have blue or green bars.  Is this based on the number of instructables you have?


blue bar: 0-9 instructables
green: 10-19
red: 20-29
orange: 30+

Killersafecracker has 25 ibles and he has an orange bar.

Can't see my own though. Is that a feature?

You should see your own. I do.

This is awesome!

I can't always see the bars, which has confused me somewhat, have yet to see my own bar...

That is really awesome! We should thank Rachel for putting it together.

I especially like that your currently active avatar is automatically embedded into the "card" image.  Kind of weird when you still have the original Top Trumps image active :->
