8thos Google Authorship

Unmaintained 8thos Google Authorship 1.5

No permission to download
Google + Authorship is a service by Google that links your Google + Profile and avatar to the articles you create when people find your threads in google search and also shows you as the thread author in every thread you've created. You must be the thread author for this to work. It takes around two weeks for google to add you to authorship if you do get approved. They will send a notification to the email that's associated with your google circles account.

This resource is unsupported.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that Google doesn't guarantee to show author information in Google Web Search or Google News results.

Both the original file+ bug fix and a separate file for BigK's version are included.

WARNING: Everyone ignore BigK's version if you don't need it because I did something hackish. For The Admin and Mod's Only Version (Big K's Version. You must move the custom user field for googleplus and googleauthor from Contact Details to Personal Details. If you already have custom user fields for Personal Details then they will no longer be shown to regular members.

Thanks! I think it doesn't have much downloads because Google Authorship requires a recognizable headshot. Some people are shy.
Will this addon slow down my forum ?
