Last FM used to do a rectangle with all of your most scrobbled artists (of alltime, last month etc.) inside with the bands or artists 'logo'. Just wondered if anybody can remember this? And if Last FM nwould consider doing it again?

I believe that was something a user made rather than an official Last FM feature, in much the same way that you could have a most-played albums chart showing down the right-hand side of your profile, among numerous other charts.

I used to use it all the time, but the new last.fm site doesn't allow it to be displayed on your page, I just did a quick google and found this page which can still generate the logos to be used elsewhere, but it can't be displayed in the way the old last.fm profile pages did

There used to be several websites which offered artist collage generators for Last.fm. The Last.fm Scrubbler has this function as well. I'm afraid, all of them stopped working since this API change which prevents the call of images: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/api-announcement-dac8oefw5vrxq

You still can create word clouds, charts and graphs, though:
