Horrible Avatar cropping & scaling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Horrible Avatar cropping & scaling

Thats the first site i have problems with avatar. This thing seems to take a random tiny crop of my image and then scales it to oblivion. Take a look at this:

And thats the original:

even with bigger images it does that.

- Why is there no Info what would be the perfect size for an avatar image

- Why the hell does it crop an avatar? (O.o) that really baffles me

- Why the horrible scaling?

Avatars where the easiest shit since forums came along but this supposedly "user friendliness" makes a horrible complicated mess out of a simple process.

I preferred the good old "Your avatar needs to be 128x128 px. Period".

But many people nowadays wouldn't even know how to scale a picture to 128x128px.

Usually, it's fine as long as your avatar is square. It'll just be scaled then. But that's not always the case...

I like sites that use my avatar on Gravatar.com. I can setup one avatar and know it will look the same on all of the sites that use it. Update it in one place and they all display it.

I don't get it. This really drives me nuts. I made an image that should make fun of this. But no matter what I do it does not crop. Same file type, same size. One image crops all text away not matter what I try, the other image does not crop at all no matter what I do.

Edit: It also seems to buffer your image so if u upload a completely different image with the same name it just takes the first image with that name.

This is by far the $!"%$&§%&/%$&/ worst Avatar function I have seen in my whole time on the internet.

This doesn't work on youcantimagine.com because there is no URL avatar you can only upload one.
