What is the grey box under account view?

There's a large light-grey box in the top right corner of my Stack Overflow user page, just above the "last activity: ..." info text. It's empty, non-interactive and doesn't contain advertisement or something. Is it just for decoration or does my browser miss something here? (Firefox 3.6 on Windows)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

See this question. It's a spot for your profile description, if you put anything in that field in the edit view. – Tim Stone Feb 10 '11 at 20:57

It's the closest thing Stack Overflow gets to a Facebook profile.

  • Want to have your contact information visible? Put it there.
  • Like long walks on the beach? That's the place to write about it.

Its your 'About Me' if you go to edit your profile. You can put anything you;d like in there. Its not mandatory, so thats why its just a blank box for some people

A lot of people use it to post their work, and such.
