Enormous profile pictures.
« on: January 17, 2013, 01:51:16 PM »
A few members seem to have profile pics that break the formatting. I've attached a screenshot of the first one I noticed.

Mine is huge at the top of the page... does it look huge in the profile slot?
So how many crashes have I survived now?

Sorry, I've changed how we handle avatars so that the site will load a bit faster. Unfortunately it has the unintended affect of making linked avatars too large.

If you have an oversized avatar then just load up your profile -> forum profile and then click save. That'll fix it by itself (no need to change your avatar, just resave it)

If you see someone else with an oversized avatar just flag it up and I'll resave it at it's proper size.

Isn't 2S meant to resize profile pictures when uploaded or something?

It always has when you've uploaded a picture. However, some people linked to an external image in the past so it had problems when I changed the system. Now if you link to an external image then the server will download it and compress it... but it hasn't done that with old profile pics.

Do pictures in Sigs also count for this topic?  Chicop76 has a huuuuuuge pony that takes up about 75% of my screen

I don't think sig pics are supposed to change in size, but I can vouch for its hugeness and it induces lag when I scroll over it; basically, it's far too damn big and needs dealing with in some way. Possibly by telling Chicop to use a smaller damn image - it's no good if it's so big I can't see it :P
So how many crashes have I survived now?

Sorry about that. Didn't know the pony was soooo huge. Tx for the fix.
