comment Is it proper to build a site supporting blog visitors in WordPress?
I agree with you ... but you could expand your answer addressing why WordPress network is best and just name drop a few plugins :)

comment Can I get at WordPress code from inside a Selenium test?
Could you expand a bit on this use case 'test visiting a user's profile page, then change the path to the page' ... WordPress Permalinks would mean an author / profile page would always be at the same url like 'damien.co/author/damiensaunders'

comment How can I track active users of my plugin? and why doesn't WordPress.Org offer this?
hmmm well I'll leave the question title alone but the question is about active users of any plugin (not active visitors or end users). Does that help?

comment Automatic connect wordpress to facebook with featured image?
I think the OP is saying they are using @Otto Simple Facebook Connect plugin. But the posts dont publish automatically to Facebook. They also use dlvr.it and twitterfeed.com but the RSS feed doesn't include the featured image.

@Otto from your experience ... how could I track privately the uniques? I just realised I can check my server logs for calls to my private .json file

As a 'developer' I'd prefer the download numbers be fuzzed already. But I'd also prefer to have a stats view for my plugins. I think this is needed to help the developers too. Imagine if work like your facebook app didn't have any active users? And I imagine someone at WordPress is furiously interested in how many active uniques there are for the API, iOS and Android Apps. Why, does it seem so hard to provide some of the same data to WordPress's own developer community?
