i am trying to build a widget that would display a list of top authors on sidebar..

This is not my first widget but it is my second one so my apologies if i am way off..

The problem is that when i drag the widget into the side (in admin ofcourse) and saves it apears no where..later when i check i see after refreshing the widgets page it doesent apear to exist..

here is my widget code: --> http://pastebin.com/Hf4xTUHG

i know it rather langthy but can anyone help / give an idea as to why this is happening?

It sticks if you don't include id_base in $control_ops, when you pass it to WP_Widget in the constructor.

Looking at the core code it looks as though id_base is actually the first arg to WP_widget and the $control_ops array should only carry 'width' and 'height' keys.
