+1. Looking really good. Consistency ftw.
Some people are still missing their hackergotchi apparently, though. For
instance, I can't see Dan Vratil's image on the planetkde.org.
Maybe the site could compensate by defaulting to the KDE gear icon if the
hackergotchi is missing, otherwise the title looks mis-aligned.
Just my two cents -- Great work!
