Hey All: I activated the Authors Widget plugin and added it to http://core2spring2013.commons.gc.cuny.edu/... it works, but it slows the page load time down significantly (and this is with only two authors currently having published posts).
We've run into some issues with similar plugins on B@B in the past and it might be worth checking to see if this is the best solution for listing authors. I've attached a possible replacement.

Authors Widget looks like it was not written with Multisite in mind. When collating a list of blog authors, it separately pulls up a list of every user on the entire WP installation for cross-reference. This is very much not necessary.
I'd like to avoid adding another plugin to do this, if possible, so for now I have patched the plugin to cut out the unnecessary stuff https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/68e7a13c3706acbf206e852ca918a3730e1b76cc I'm going to pass a patch to the plugin author to see if he'll consider implementing it. If he doesn't, we can talk about moving to a different plugin.
