One of my recent little coding projects has been tinkering with the IFIS Lovemap of doom and it's other various incarnations. Mostly because there's been a sudden interest in it from the IFIS crowd and their usage has highlighted a few issues to fix and improvements to add.

One thing they have identified that I can't fix is human nature. Namely the need for some to know everything and by unspirited methods have "solved" the lovemap. And in doing so have made it so that people don't feel able to add any links because it's no longer effectively anonymous. Some how I don't feel this is something entirely within even my coding skills to fix ... ;)

What is needed is a graph shattering shake up with a whole load of new information added that'll (hopefully) remain confusing long enough for people to feel confident in adding more links again. Maybe next year's new intake will cause this. Maybe some more old timers will check it out and contribute some of our embarressing dark secrets. I don't know. Or maybe I should write some new code that injects random echos of data that'll confuse things enough that no-one will ever know where they really are again...
