you were able to do so about a year ago, but then this feature was taken away from us. We can gladly announce that it's once again possible to fully customize your profile again.

Here's a short How-To (from the authors of this forum script):

We have created this document to help you understand how the new user profile customization variables work. We walk through the six groups of variables and show by screen shots how the various elements on the page are affected. In the screen shots below, everything except the settings group being demonstrated is set to “gray”. Also the colors used are selected to be very different. This is of course unlike any real page you will ever see, but makes it easier see what's happening. You might want to put on your sunglasses before proceeding.


To get started, click on the "Customize Your Profile" button in the top right corner of your profile. This will open an overlay that provides the tools you need.
