Completely agree with you... I really hate the circular shape for profile pic.
It destroy the original design...

This has ruined hundreds of people's profiles.
PLEASE go back to square profiles. It was fantastic before, but now this is just awful.
How about adding a feature so that you can choose whether you'd like to be displayed as a square or a circle?

Absolutely.. And when you hover over someones name you can't even see his profile picture, it is that small.. And you can't see how many track he has posted when you hover his name, just how many follower he has.. That is a very important thing, with that you can see if that is an artist account or just a listener account without opening his profile..
Also people who have white profile pictures cannot be seen..before you could see everyones picture perfectly..
Example:

Pleease people fix this, I usually love changes but this sucks..
Square ones are visually better and more practical than the round ones.
You should better be working on the Search feature than the design part of the cloud..

I love soundcloud but this would just be a step back..

They've probably got bored and thought, lets put this round thing on. It looks silly and doesn't go with everything else in terms of design.

yes agreed, we should have the choice of square or round if they really want round ones...
i agree so much, especially because everything else is still square and it just doesnt go together at all ... http://puu.sh/nzFgI/383b4e0749.png (screenshot of it)

Horrendous design choice, ruins the entire page and looks incredibly cheap. I also hate how these and all other unnecessary changes before it are being pushed through without any input from their paying clientele. Sometimes it feels like they're purposely trying to push their userbase away to other platforms. Seriously SC, knock it off please!

They don't do choices on SC. They just push through whatever comes up in them at a whim and don't listen or care at all how we feel about it. At least that is the feeling I am getting after all this time.

try hearthis.at instead, they listen and care about there user base and artists, and actually ask their users what changes they would like to see/not see, every time soundcloud makes another unanounced unnecessarry change the more i tell people
about hearthis.at

Yeah the round profile pictures look awful. Here's how to get rid of them.

Using Chrome? I've made an extension which you can install by following the link and clicking "Add to Chrome" which will revert the profile images back to how they used to look in your browser.

This way we can count how many people would rather the profile pictures square. Also, using SoundCloud while these round pics are still active won't feel any different to the good ol' days!

Share it round. Let me know if you have any bright ideas for features. Message at http://soundcloud.com/runrabbit

Cheers,

THEY should get rid of them. NOT us.

Moreover, despite that round ones is really disgusting and kischy on the profile header, the pictures which appear on the track when you comment on it, are yet in the square. Does it make any consistency? Apparently they don't have the designer's mind.
This may require us to design the one which might fit in both...This is non sense...
