Duplicate avatars, wrong total count, trolls not hidden (Vanilla 2.1.11)
Thanks for this plugin. I have been testing it a bit under Vanilla 2.1.11 and found the following problems:
The total count of discussants shown appears to be based on the number of different avatar picture files, so all discussants sharing the same picture (such as the default avatar) are only counted once. Displaying the same picture only once makes sense, but the count should probably include everyone.
The avatar of the original poster will appear repeated if he makes a comment in his own discussion, provided someone else has commented before him. This repeating is kind of confusing, making it seem as if they are different users.
When using the plugin Troll Manager (from the master branch of Vanilla source on GitHub), trolls are not hidden from the list of avatars (in fact, they are highlighted with the word "Troll". It's buggy but funny ), nor from the total number of discussants.
