TMI, shuuji1984.

I saw the most ... unusual profile last month. Of course, Pico has all types of profiles. But this one was what I would say had way more info than you need/want to know about someone. Too much info. TMI.

Take a look. Judge for yourself. →

I don't know about you, but I don't need to know about the sex lives of strangers who appear on my screen as kawaii characters.

Since the profile update shuuji1984's information has changed. He no longer publicizes the depressing details of his life to the world and his blog address has changed.

[Update] Shuuji has since left Pico. So, if you want insight into the psyche of a 28-year-old virgin you're out of luck in this case.

Ameba raises the profile

It's been a while since I posted ... but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to comment on the new profiles.

Hate 'em.


Too jumpy
They ... jump! I hate that! When I say "jump" I mean that when I click on one person to another the position of where the profile is on my screen changes. It jumps.

With the old profiles the position stayed steady. I could place the profile window anywhere I wanted and it would stay ... just like a well behaved dog.

In the end ...
I will admit that I don't mind how the information is laid out. The addition of when the player's account was created and their last login date is a great addition. Ameba gets a point for that. Although I don't like the placement of the URL in the 'Details' tab. It should be visible straight away in 'Basics' tab.

And that's how I feel about it.

It's a good change, it just needs some tweaking.
