Profile suggestions

A couple of ideas for profile pages:

1. It would be nice if it were possible to put some kind of blurb up on our profile page.

2. It would also be great if we could have some nominal ability to upload files for other members to be able to download at will from our profile. Some example uses: instead of having to bug atxdad by PM in order to have him email you his Bricklink order optimization toolkit, he could just keep a zip of the latest version in his files area, that members could download directly. Similarly, if someone wanted to write some kind of white paper on some topic, and perhaps maintain it with updates over time, that could be kept there for the benefit of other users, rather than creating a thread, which doesn't really serve the same purpose. This would be great for original papers analogous to Didier Enjary's "Unofficial Advanced Building Techniques Guide" or Huw's Guide to minifig photography or even the recently-posted survey of clone brands.

    Also, if you look at the profile page(s) over at Boardgamegeek, which I think makes a good role model in this area, you will find that they are very rich, including abilities to microblog, have user galleries and a variety of other very useful features. Here is a sample: one of the admins.

    While I'm not sure if the second one is possible (due to the limited ability to customize the forum), your first suggestion is pretty much already in place; all you have to do is put a comment on your profile "wall". If I'm not mistaken, the most recent comment you make there will even be displayed above your statistics. (example)
