You're the expert. I'm using a bg color that is the same color of the
block next to the ratings. The outline could be black. The text matches
the rest of the page text. Dunno why that is so different.

As for the other changes. Jeff wanted to know how I would tighten things
up and this is how I would do it. If we're going to have member pages
then that is a buttload of information that I do not feel needs to be in
the bio section in an article. I think the "five other articles" thing
isn't too bad but if they can click a link and get all the info in one
fell swoop then lets do that. There will be stats and info and email
links and all the links to all their billions of articles on that page.
It's just bogging down in my opinion.

Also, a couple people really want the photo at the top. I think that's
fine. However, I think you need to find a better way to do it. It takes
up too much real-estate, is too jarring to the eye in comparison with
our gentle aesthetic we have going on. Maybe we could agree on a fixed
size and treatment for the photo or something. That means more work,
though, so do with that what you will.
