From the time I developed the Top 10 Members gadget (a year back), I got feedback from site owners saying that they don’t want to show up on their own site. I thought of providing an option, but did not get enough time. Now I have added a “Hide Me!” checkbox, that anyone can use to hide themselves from being shown up on the gadget.
Even if the user has selected to hide him/herself, the visit will still be counted, so that anytime when he/she changes the mind, their position on the gadget will be appropriate.
See, I have made 118 visits, but not appearing in the Top 10 members list.
Let me know if you face any issues.
