Go for it, but put in brackets instead of parentheses.

Cool, will do. I suspect it won't immediately affect all the people who have it on lists already though as usually you have to click the update button on your list for it to work. At least future lists should be fine.

I have only vague recollections of TesseracT but I do recall them being quite ambient oriented at many points. Then again I would have said the same about Chimp Spanner which no longer has the ambient tag so perhaps just removing it would be easier.

Yeah, I'd go with removing it.

Done. Seems other sources on the interwebz agrees they're prog.

Also some indication that they are more rock than metal in later career?

I could only find one picture, so I resized it to fit as both the header and band profile image. If you have any other pictures that would be more appropriate for either, let me know and I'll do the rest.

What is the point of using the same pic for image and header? I've never understood this, it's so stupid. It's an optional feature, not a requirement. And nowhere does it say the header has to be a promo image of the band, it just has to be related to the band. If you absolutely feel like there must be a header on every profile then why not use a logo, or album art, or a mascot (if they have one, like Iron Maiden, Megadeth and A7X) or create a collage of their various album arts, or create a collage of various promo images spanning their career (ex: Arcturus; I loved this idea of Janne's), etc.? Get creative with it for fuck's sake.

You quoted me before I had time to think up and edit/add this...

The "collage of promo pics spanning a band's career" idea was actually by a Finnish ex-user. He did that on Arcturus's profile and I thought it was great, and a very creative idea for the header.

Speaking of Arcturus, the criteria for a band image is, "JPG, 150x150 or more. No effects or borders!" Given that, I think their image needs to be changed.

Huh? Not sure what you're saying is wrong with the image...?

Hmm. Not entirely sure that's exactly what was meant when that rule was created aeons ago (granted Idfk what else might have been might by effects, but it looks fine to me, and we use such promo pics all the time; it's kind of difficult not to with such theatrical bands as Arcturus who don't really do standard print/model promo images.

Leave it be for now and I'll bring it up in MS Towers to see if that rule can be left in the past. It looks perfectly fine to me.

Could/should Dreadnought get prog rock added? Chunks of the album sound more rock than metal.

I'm sure that's because no one uses Myspace anymore. Maybe they automatically get removed if they're inactive for a long time?

Well, lately Myspace is been control by label only if they wanna update about tours(especially Hip Hop artists). No new songs get uploaded, fans giving any shit about there and last week only, it went big 404 due to missing plug-ins(constant fuck ups related to server). So, thus it gets automatically deleted moment you left artist myspace's page for 30+ days.

People still use Myspace as hi5 clone.
