So I know a lot of people are hating on this new look but if the devs are taking suggestions, I think it could get better... eventually...maybe... sometime....

A suggestion that I think would be interesting is the Last.fm profile banner... (the black and white concert crowd) maybe to make each persons profile more personal allow us to change the background picture to something of our choice... 

Also, take into high consideration of letting us have the told about me section back. It would probably make users feel a bit more comfortable with the change.

I get that... I don't agree with the change but trying to make the best of it.. because it's clear they are not reverting back.

they won't revert back if you support them, which is what you're unconsciously doing...
don't give up on us!

We are still in beta so they are supposed to welcome suggestions, and they have now pushed the beta on all of us. Since they have removed the ability to post banners/pictures/badges in the About Me section, I am wondering if they are at all thinking about user customization and personalization. Now all user pages will look the same, which is a shame. I would like an option to change between banners, remove it completely or better yet upload my own banner. However, the best option would for me be to remove the banner and bring back the old About Me.

This is NOT beta. This is the website. This is the released product. It's certainly not finished, but it's not a beta either.

Well they apparently decided to launch the new site while it was still in beta, instead of letting the beta be optional until release. Perhaps they weren't happy with the lack of feedback during the optional beta. They certainly can't have that opinion now though, with all the critique here.

"Perhaps they weren't happy with the lack of feedback during the optional beta." - There was certainly no lack of feedback when the beta site was optional. On the previous forum, the beta update threads were full of constructive responses, as well as the kind of disbelief and anger you're seeing today. Nobody wanted the staff to launch the website in this rudimentary form.

there was tons of feedback about the beta, they just ignored it.

Well I don't know why they decided to launch the site this way, and I'm not trying to find excuses for them here, I'm as disappointed as anyone. I'd like the optional beta to come back instead.

Perfection at this point would certainly be to revert back to the old site, but I doubt that will happen, since people have voiced their criticism on other updates in the past and they all went through. At least we now have a say during the update. Or at least I like to think so.

If I could customize my home page to even remotely look like the old one I would be happy.

However, I just want lists and stats instead of the crap we've gotten.

The banner shows artist of your top track (depending on what you have set 7 days, 1 year ...), not a concert crowd for me. Anyway the header is entirely too huge and useless.
