I more for than against.
I'm curious to what will result from this and can't help but hope customization will come in a different form.

I don't even customize my profile (I is too nabby lolz), so I'm voting for change.
The idea you mentioned above seems more interesting in my opinion.

I'll miss customizing my profile if it does go. But whatever they'll be, new features for use profiles sounds awesome. It's worth dropping profile customizations for imo.

While I like the profile customizations, I'd rather see new features that can actually benefit the site as a whole, then just the people who like to design profiles. Therefore, I vote for the ditching of profile customizations for new additions to the profile.

This.
Those features you mentioned don't even sound useful in the slightest to me. You can just list the game's you're currently playing in your sig and xfire already does the game online/offline thing.

and I happen to like my custom profiles.

Either decision doesn't really bother me, never really cared for my profile customization.

Ask yourselves this:
Aside from Profile of the Month, what do we get out of profile customization?

To those that use it, a sense of uniqueness from everyone else.
Refer to my post about about the profile helping to establish a form of "Identity"

There are people here who do treasure the ability to customize things and call it their own.
Even if you consider it useless, no one says the change will be any more beneficial to everyone.

Its more of an individuality thing I guess.. dunno.
I don't use xfire so itd be cool to keep track of my hours played 8D besides, I think there will probably another form of customization to come :x

Well, there's also the option of asking the person him or herself what games they play via PM or Visitor messages. lol

As for the profile question, I don't really know what else to say except for what Light and Kebin says. :v Sense of uniqueness that sets yourself apart from the others and also just another neat thing that we all can do on the forums.

I remember getting a new friend on here because I visited her profile and saw that she had customized it so nicely. We started talking about stuff that we shared in common and yeah, it was nice. New friend get~ Though I'm full aware that this isn't the case with everyone else.

Overall though, I'm fine with whatever now. It's no big deal.

ggftw is mutating from Myspace to Facebook, including use of #FFFFFF. This part of the mutation I can agree with.

Mine personally draws back good nostalgic memories for me.

I've no idea what plans you've got in mind, and because change isn't always for the better, I'm going to have to agree with SOC and Shnao.
This is a major change, and if removing more identity of someone will be the sacrifice, I'm really torn away from my usual "Yeah, this will be great" conclusion.
^ This

But then again...

Lets just hope the new feature will be worth it.

I have to agree with Dani, Light and Shnao. The new feature does not sound interesting for me, and being able to customize our profile is something I really enjoy, like Light said, it's unique, everyone designs their profile as they please and feel at home as they check their profile, some people who sign(ed) up here don't even play PC games (anymore, like me) and just lurk around on profiles to talk with each other, getting rid of this will not motivate those people. Yes, I'm very aware that this is a gaming site but please, don't get rid of such cool features lots of people enjoy playing around with just to add some online/offline status for games. Or at least give us a list of what we really get instead in replacement of our profile customization, maybe an option as they sign up or maybe in the Control Panel: "Do you want to disable your profile customization in trade of ----- and ----- features?" But I'm assuming this is not possible.

But I see most of the people voted for "yes" so I can kiss my profile design bye-bye.

And like I said before, this is just my opinion, and with this post I don't mean "OMG THEY MUST STAY AT ANY COST!!" No, I'm just donating my thoughts about this. If you still decide to remove them, cool, we'll get used to it and I'll hope that we will get cool features instead.

Good luck with the updates.

I, for one, have never made use of the Profile Customisation option, nor have I seen the necessity for it, so I wouldn't mind if it was dropped for something new.

On a side note:
While some people have made pieces of art out of their profiles, there sadly are some others, who used the profile customisation to make it as painful as possible to look at their profiles. Dropping those would definitely be good riddance.

I really like customizing my own profile, and like seeing other people's work on it, and... basically, SOC, Light, Dani, Taka and everyone else who are against this already said what I have in mind, (Except I wouldn't call it identity personally, but it felt like "Wow my profile doesn't look as welcoming but bland now. D:") so I don't think there's a reason to repeat what they said any further. Personally I prefer the things the way they are, which is just Simple and Clean, you know? D: And repeated again, I too wish to know what are these changes before implementing it.

This is just a board and all, there's no need for so much fancy features, in my humble opinion. Not everyone here plays games 24/7, and I believe that tearing down profile design would be a big let-down for people who like looking at other people's profiles or like making their own. I like Innovation, but scrapping out this idea is not a good choice, IMO. D:

Oh also, the profile helps the gg member to interact with each other too.

I mean...I am sure most people have been to other's profile and comment "I like your profile" "Your profile is awesome!" "How do I change this/that". It allows the members to interact, and get to know each other through the idea of liking their profile design etc.

Well, I sure like having my profile different than others, but if there was a way to keep it while giving new features, I'd totally go for that.

If not, I might as well learn to live with a plain profile like everyone else :<
