Done up in WordPress, it offers subscriptions, events (in time, so to speak), and a text-resizer. Believe it or not, good text resizers are hard to find. There’s also extensive use of a contact form plugin, that accepts applications for contests and nominations.
I’ve added gravatars to the comments displayed at the bottom of posts. If you have one set up it should appear down there automatically based on your e-mail address. Otherwise, you’ll be distinguished by a rectangle rendered is a sophisticated shade of grey.
If you think this is a bad idea, by all means let me know.
