Character Profiles Coming Soon

Shortly after the launch of Diablo III, we’ll be adding a new feature to our official site. Profiles will let you review all of your character information at a glance, share it with others, and check out the accomplishments of the other heroes out there.
You’ll be able to look at your heroes (or your friends’ heroes) from any page on the Diablo III site through our personalized menu. If you’re curious about the exploits of your fellow forum posters, it’ll be a simple matter to click over to their profiles and feel envious of their gear or how long they’ve managed to keep their Hardcore characters alive.
Our first profiles release will include these two elements:

A career tab that displays all of your heroes, how far you’ve progressed in the Diablo III campaign, how many foes you’ve slain, the names and playtimes of your fallen Hardcore heroes, and more.

A heroes tab that shows off your equipment (including dyes, socketed gems, all equipment bonuses, etc.), your attributes and skills, the skills and equipment of your Followers, and more.
We’re planning to add tabs that’ll show off your artisans and achievements as well. Profiles will be available on the site sooner rather than later, but you should feel free to share your suggestions and thoughts in the comments section below or in the Website Features forum. We’ve also been hard at work on a ton of other website content, available to help you sharpen your knowledge and prepare to face the forthcoming onslaught. On Monday, May 14, you’ll be able to browse an updated Items section, which will include Legendary and Set items, as well as some specific hand-crafted items. In addition, you can:

Watch the new gameplay overview video – What Is Diablo III?

Experiment with class builds using the Skill Calculator.

Discuss the game on the Diablo III Community forums.

Pre-purchase Diablo III.
See you in Sanctuary!

These pages just look so exciting. Progress bars, Elite kills, Items. It a glorious bragging sheet. This makes me feel strange and wonderful. Now, when someone calls me a noob for using bad tactics like drawing a bunch of monsters to them on accident, I can go look at see how tough they really are.

I would be down for a statistic added on there for how many times a player was called a 'noob'. It would inspire amazingly 'ness' things, like awesomeness, thanklessness and awkwardness, like when you join a group and people recognize you as one of the top ten noobs in Diablo 3

Here is the gameplay overview video once again if you missed it:
