Such a simple addon that adds some great functionality. My only complaint is that it doesn't have an area for css in the style properties (for positioning), but that's easily done via extra.css.
Beautiful add-on! Really useful and handy. Thank for your hard work. Really dresses up the forums, and is very customizable.
Works perfectly, and is exactly as described. The new features are also exactly as advertised. The users on my forum requested this and love it.
Thank you for the feedback!
Nice, I really like the add-on our forum member. Great and Top Brilliant Development!!! Thats just awesome work.
Thank you for the feedback!
Such a simple idea, yet very handy. A few css tweaks had it working great on my site with small avatars at all screen sizes. Thanks
Thank you for your feedback!
Great idea and quickly implemented! The only adjustment I needed due to having customized my theme's stylesheet, was to edit the ribbon's stylesheet in this area:

div.ribbonBox .ribbon-wrapper {
width: 50px;
height: 50px;
top: 10px;
right: 10px;

I edited the top and right values to -10px. And now it's flush to the edge of the avatar box.

Many thanks!
Thank you for the feedback!
Perfect little add-on. Now I can remove my manual template edit that I had. Thank you for releasing it.:)
Thank you for the feedback!
Handy little addon that provides a functionality seldom used but often very helpful. Surprised it hadn't been made earlier.
Thank you for your feedback!
