    Here are ideas for further custimization of the profile. Should some be subscriber only? Some are pointless, but extras.

    1. Choose a color of your profile text
    2. Choose a color of your graph
    3. Be able to underline your profile text (bold, italic, **underline)
    4. Stats: Games won-lost-drawn as black and " " for white.

    I'd settle for being able to have a carriage return in my profile message.

    1. Why?
    2. Why?
    3. I can see this being useful purely from the point of view that bold/italic work elsewhere but do we really need underline? Does anybody really need underline?
    4. You can access those yourself in My Performance and if someone is interested they can find them out using the Game Explorer (or would be able to if it would show all games played).

    what is a "carriage return" in profile message?

    Why, because it adds more individuality. It isn't a major idea, just a minor suggestion.

    I wanted to be able to have multiple lines in my profile, so if I have a few statements that don't relate to one another they aren't all crammed into a single paragraph.

    Note: This site isn't myspace. The main idea isn't "individuality", it's chess. Nowhere else on the site does the user get to choose the colour of the text they type so why in their profile?
    And colour of their graph? What possible purpose does that serve?

    I can see a use for colouring Timeouts differently. I'd quite like to see where someone has been timed out rather than beaten...

    I like the predictability and readability of the colour scheme. If you leave it to each user, there will inevitably be some colour combinations which are hardly readable for some people and which may hurt the eyes of some.
