A few small site updates

I thought I'd tell you about a few of the things I've done on the site today:
- On the search results page, there has been a "Match Preferences" widget in the sidebar for a while. I recently noticed that it wasn't working; it wasn't affecting the results that were shown. I have now fixed it, so if you don't like the results you are getting, please try adjusting it. "Smart Match" gives the most relevant results overall, but sometimes the other options can be useful.
As an example of how you can use it... imagine you are searching for hello kitty. If you choose "Match exact phrase" you will ONLY get patterns that have the exact phrase "hello kitty." If you choose "Match any words," you will get patterns that have "hello kitty," "hello," and "kitty."
- The home page now tells you when the last batch of patterns was published, and how many were published. There's also a link to view the most recent batch of published patterns.
- The voting page now has some statistics at the bottom about how many patterns have been uploaded/approved over the past week and month. I thought some of you might find it interesting to see what percentage of patterns are currently being approved. You will find that it varies though, depending on the type/amount of patterns being uploaded
