I would love to use the connections header to show the connections of Members that makes sense to our framework. To do that I would need to do two things....
1) put a background image on the member connections page? Can I do this. I have attached the file I would like to add. You will see it has four columns and also different competencies as rectangles.
2) I would like to be able to fix the members to a particular location over a set part of the scree (Their main competency) . just like I can do with the popups in the wpbakery "hotspot" feature (see the attached screen shot). Is this possible or is it a wild and wacky thing that can be done in the future? Then the connections between them would make real sense and be very useful.
So what I am asking is can we put member circles in particular places on the member connections screen and have a background image that makes that sensible?

You should be able to add a background through the page's settings (featured image) that displays the connection header. Otherwise, I will show you how to do it by CSS. But the background is just for styling it does not affect the way the members are displayed.
That will not be possible because that is not the way it was designed to work. The positions are random and there is a specific algorithm to make it possible. Moreover the connections are defined by other criterias based on BuddyPress network activity. At this moment that is not something that will change.
And as your requests are very specific, that might not be the best tool to achieve it. Honestly, I am not sure you will easily find a tool to do that. It would likely be custom development but I would not recommend the connection header for that because of the above reasons. And also, you need to be careful of the diversity of screens and displays, like mobile phones or tablets because that won't help a fixed layout.
Have a nice end of week-end.

You are right. Thank you. I found how to change the background in CSS but the other issues you raised make it not really a good way to go. Thank you so much for your advice.
No problem at all, don't hesitate.
