Default [how to] cut it out with the avatars

Some of us like to browse and post from work machines and people having garbage like cat penises for their avatars is pretty fucked up.

Instead of making a new thread, this one seemed appropriate lol

Avatars,

It seems the sizes are 'ok' for fitting on the page.

I dislike that the .png images still show in white w/ border (see my current avatar).

Also, why such a small margin on size? Even some of the simple gifs I'd like to use will never be below the 29.3 KB I'm not asking for a 1MB size, but a small bump would be nice.

No idea. I just did a Google Images search for "pixel hitler" which returned an animated GIF. I took a still-frame and trimmed out the background to make a transparent PNG.

That said, if a person wants an avatar which looks decent, it's up to them to size it properly. Any algorithm which automatically corrects one image during resize will **** up another.


Not many people knew it, but the Führer was a terrific dancer.

So this is what I see...



The sidebar gradient background image is missing, & post box bottom gradient background image. Not sure what else

The front page seems to be fine...
