I have no code in home, maybe I should add a icon to go to the canvas page
What would be better in my view would be something that told me if I had any new kisses or if not possible the kiss count
and a link off to the canvas.
As I've said elsewhere I spend my time on home and rarely view my own profile.
About the text.. hmm this is a tough issue
Myspacers are particular with their profiles - ugly apps (and I'm not saying your is) won't end up on profiles - simple as.
I don't know what code you are using - I use Flash so just put a box in the Background. Though for some apps I want to allow the user to customise its colors - i'll add you as its friend later.
