Adds a sidebar widget to show the top commentators in your WP site. Adapted from Show Top Commentators plugin at Personal Financial Advice.
Obviously, you must be using WordPress on your site. Your theme must also support widgets (if unsure, check with the person who designed the theme). If it doesn't support widget, please use the Show Top Commentators plugin instead; it should work similarly to this widget.

When this happens, it could verily mean that you will need to tweak your CSS file of the WordPress theme you are using. Not only will you need to look into formatting the UL, OL and LI of your sidebar, you also need to consider the use of A in the existence -- or absence -- of hyperlinked commentators' names. The easiest way to do this is: - Identify the CSS elements that exist around and within the Top Commentators Widget. You can identify the tags surrounding the TC Widget with the words "top-commentators" or "widget widget_topcomm". - You may or may not want to add a new CSS element specifically for the TC Widget. Get someone you know who's good with CSS if you're not comfortable doing this yourself.
By the way, if you want to tinker with the style for this widget's Gravatar, just add a class called tcwGravatar to your style.css file and add any CSS element to it. For the Award icon, look for the tcwAward class.
