Each section of it was a block and could be moved around.
You could enable or disable blocks.
You could edit colours using a colour picker. This included text, links, background colours, borders.
You could upload a graphic to use as background.
People had a lot of fun creating distinctive Profile pages and commenting on them. A good deal of coooperation was stimulated as users helped each other plus frioendly competition for the most dramatic/ prettiest/ funky etc page. This all exploded on the VB site and mine when the feature became available. Sadly VB4.0 simply axed this and lots of memnbers on other sites lost their treasured profiles. For this reason I stuck with 3.7.
Any chance of someone interested in a blocks + colour picker here for the Profile section? (not just the main front page of one's Profile of course)
Yes yes I know some users don't design well and some weird colour combos happened! But the users LIKED them. Which is what matters.
