I would like to strongly suggest a return of the (nearly) unlimited About Me right-sidebar section on our profile pages. I truly and sincerely believe that this feature is second only to scrobbling itself. Most of us customize this section with information about the music we like and ourselves, favorite song lyrics, concerts we've been to and images we like (after all a picture is worth a thousand words!) as well as various widgets and gadgets which use Last.fm's API to further express our listening tastes and habits.

This seems to be one of the things people complain about most and I feel it's reintroduction would make many people more accepting of the many changes that come with the new website. You could leave it at the old width limit of 300 or so, which is also in line with the right-sidebar on the new website. You can have it start below all the ads like you did on the old website. People really do peruse these sidebars of other users and as they do, they would see all the various ads interspersed throughout the rest of the profile.

I do sincerely hope you would take this suggestion into consideration and I think you will wind up with a number of more happy campers. Thank you

We'd like to expand the functionality at some point, but exactly how and when is still to be determined.  Certainly we have no plans to change how the About Me works this year.
