Thanks for the kind words. That's a good idea for providing a screen
shot, that's what they do at addons.mozilla.org . It might be somewhat
difficult however to implement an enlargeable thumbnail because the
developers would have to create two images, and I would probably have to
a.sl.o code. I haven't looked at the code yet, so I don't know what the
developers are looking at when they're uploading an activity or what
would be involved for me, but it's a good idea.
