Well Tom answered our questions yet again:
WHY DID MY LAYOUT FROM YESTERDAY STOP WORKING TODAY? Update 6:00pm PST, Nov 12 –
We had a bug during the night with layouts. If your PYZAM layout got wiped, go back and get it again. It should work now. If you are inputting your own colors or creating your own stylesheets, you may notice that currently the pound sign is blocked. This is a mistake and we’re working on a fix for this.
HOW DO I GO BACK?
This was answered in my original blog post. From the Profile dropdown main menu (on the nav) choose “Customize Profile.” When the editor is loaded click the “Go Back” link in the top right. Then choose the 1.0 option. Don’t click it multiple times, or it’ll probably show an error (that’ll be fixed soon).
I DONT LIKE 2.0 BECAUSE I CANT USE LAYOUTS!
Wrong! You just can’t use 1.0 layouts! And, all layouts must be placed in the new CSS box. (You cannot put layout/css codes in the About Me, or anywhere else. They must go in the CSS box.)
I’M WAITING FOR SITES TO CREATE MYSPACE LAYOUTS BEFORE I SWITCH
Try Pyzam.com, they already have 2400 layouts — nearly all their 1.0 layouts to 2.0 Layouts! Here’s a direct link to their 2.0 page: http://www.pyzam.com/myspace2layouts
HOW DO I CHANGE THE 3 NEW PICS THAT APPEAR NEAR THE TOP?
Each module has special features. To access them, click the pencil icon on the top right of the module. Once this opens up, click the text link (top right) “Edit Basic Information.” From there you can choose your 3 photos. There’s a bug on small screen sizes where you can’t see the “Save Changes” button that sits underneath the 3 photos. If you can’t see it on your screen, just go to the regular Edit Profile link from the nav menu or home page – not, the customize page, just the regular edit profile page. The Edit profile link lets you edit your profile information (without using any customization options). Since its not in a popup window, you’ll be able to save the three photos here.
HOW DO I CHANGE THE NUMBER OF TOP FRIENDS?
Click the pencil in the right corner of the friends module. You’ll be able to set the number of friends you’d like to display. To change the friends that actually appear there, you still need to go to friends and click the “Change Top Friends” link.
HOW DO I CHANGE MY BACKGROUND IMAGE?
Click “Advanced Edit,” then choose “Background.” Copy & Paste the link to the background image you want to use in the “URL” field . Then click PREVIEW to see if your image appeared properly.
WHY CAN’T I USE BASIC HTML IN EACH PROFILE SECTION? LIKE CENTER?
Some basic tags, like b, i, and center are being improperly filtered. We’re converting b and i to strong and em and will have them working Wednesday morning. We’re still working on center, and hope to have a fix next week.
HOW DO I MAKE MY 2.0 PROFILE PRIVATE?
With 2.0 there is no longer a single privacy on & off switch that affects the whole profile. (Your “My Account/Privacy” setting no longer applies once you convert to 2.0). Instead, you need to set the privacy on a module by module basis. The idea is you can show some things to the public, and other things to friends only. You can even show certain modules to specific categories of friends you’ve created on the friends page “my categories” tab. To set the privacy for a module, click the pencil in the top right, then click the radio button to choose who can see the module. Check the box “apply to all modules” if you want to make your whole profile viewable to the category you just selected.
There are little bugs here and there that were revealed when things went live to the whole site this morning. We are going to roll out a fix for several bugs Wednesday morning, November 12th (should be done by 10am). That said, the bugs are minor and you should be able to have a lot of fun with 2.0 right now. Try it out. 🙂

If you read through youll see that the answer to most of your problems is “were working on it.” it would make sense that such a massive recode would have issues to work out. Guess what your the test dummies.
Privacy is set at a module by module basis, and 2.0 layouts are already rather prolific at pzyam.com website, I have links in the previous myspace post, look to the right to find the myspace category.
Personally, I no longer spend much time on Myspace, my addiction has moved on to dating websites.
Heres my favorite right now.
Ashley Madison, the one with all the mysterious late night ads. Yep, that one, i always thought it was for vampires from watching the ads, but I get way more messages than I do on myspace
