For a few weeks now nothing seems to be happening to my profile counters. New views are not being added, the comments counter never moves from 0 and the tags are nothing like what they should be. I believe the tag counter counts all tags even if one world is used multiple times but the other two need fixing.

Robert. I'm loving the new feature. Make life a bit simpler. This will ensure that if you can access GS then you can see the images rather than relying on third party sites for images. I have a few points and suggestions to make.

1. Rating images would be good. Just like videos.

2. Someone said recommending images. This is bad. You recommend a video so people can see the recommendations before viewing. An image is small in file size and as such loads quick and is displayed in its entirety. Rating 1 - 5 would be good but recommending is out.

3. No limits works just fine. Thankyou for the kindness. A definite attraction to help the site run smoother. Just leave that aspect alone.

4. png images is a must. Many have asked for this previous and you said soon. I am creative and if you study my profile you will see I have used png images to create some interesting effects. I use the quality of jpeg's and the transparency of gif's (png) to enable images to have rounded corners and fades to blend with the background's of GameSpot. I have to use png files to achieve this is because users can change the CSS style which in turn changes the page background colour. Using jpeg files is off the books as the fade will stick out when the page background is changed. For a working example pop over to my profile and look at how the top image of the blog fades out. Then use the background colour changer next to the GameSpot search bar to see how the png ensures the fade remains. i.e. Image to blue, Same image to white.

5. If there are no limits on this feature then there should be no limits when adding images via the user preferences window. I noticed that the images tab there allows you to upload an avatar, banner and profile image but there all limited. Seems a but redundant if we can all at level 3 upload to the new images thing then link the URL in the prefs window.

Apologies for long points and unclear views. If you answer these questions and views please use quotes. I don't fancy scrolling about. Thankyou

All that was was the CSS page not loading. If a page contains loads of things such as a GameSpot page this can sometime lead to a CSS page not loading. The CSS page controls all visual aspects of a page. If this page fails to load you will userly see a mess of a white background, purple, blue and red writing all jumbled up. The CSS page sorts all this out.

Thank you all for posting. Some lengthy replies. I see what you point is Silvrtyn. Unfortunatly the only reason for me to keep my PS2 connected would be to use the memory cards with out buying that adapter thing. I don't own any games that require the magic gate port to plug into such as a dance mat or what not. I guess my poor little (I say little but its the chunky one. From back when they were in the limelight. I had to get a network adapter and everything.) PS2 will become the most advanced doorstop. ( My door stays open by itself so even then it will be useless.) Sorry PS2 its storage for you. The next time you see light will be when I show my children how we used to do things. But thats all in the future. PS7 or something.

to be honest I dont have a clue. Im in the UK and we get everything later. I do know that we are getting everything on March 23rd so the official Sony hdmi cable should be out by then. 39 days or so.

Do we look like Sony employees appointed to sell systems? Why are we suppose to persuade you? either you want one or you dont. You buy a console because of the games.Krigon
Well said. Although Im getting my PS3 also for the Blu-Ray player. Plus I have a load of PS2 and PS1 games for backward compat
