Yeah, I know. 100px is what I was referring to when I said "higher quality".

However, the only thing I found is a vague reference to "older users" being able to use 100×100. Does this mean 7 posts and 10 days, or was that changed at some point?

I don't know if you realize this, but the avatar you have at the moment is 100x100 pixels.

I know...

It just looks very pixelated to me, especially compared to other avatars. The source image is 300×300, so I might have to downsize it for it to look better. It's very good quality, so I don't think that's the thing, and it's been doing it since day one...

protip: resize with a proper image editing application to your liking, then upload at 100x100 so you don't have to rely on whatever the server has.

Really? Are you sure?

Members should be able to change their pictures from the start now. D:

Did you try uploading one and it gave an error message or something? In case you don't know where to change it, go to your name at the top-right of the screen and click "My Settings". From there, a button at the top called "Change my photo..." will allow you to do stuff to set one...but if it's not working for ya, we might have a problem....

No, .bmp is. It's a proprietary file format that takes up way too much space and is bettered in literally every way by .png. .jpg is a file format designed for compressing photos so they don't take up 6 GB when you put them onto your computer, and does so very well. Using pixel art as an example of why .jpg is a bad file format is retarded, because it was never designed for that. Every major image file format has its pros and cons, except .bmp. .bmps are worse in literally every way to other file formats designed to do what they do, namely .pngs. The fact that the image you showed us has artifacts is proof that .jpg does its job well. Any questions?

Do you honestly think that something as simple and universal as bitmap image format is the worst image format ever?

I should make an avatar that is one black pixel.


Though of course I wouldn't replace my current one, who would want a 1 pixel avatar anyway?
