    Could something be done about avatar stretching in PC browsers? They are not the original intended size next to the posts, which leads to blurring.

    left: blurred next to posts; right: clear in the profile/avatar selection.

    Likely xenforo not liking the file not having either dimension be 96 pixels. Adding transparent padding (lazy) or redoing those avatars to make them bigger (autistic) is likely to solve the issue.

    So many avatars, from so many people. This truly is the merriest place on the Codex. I've one final gift to give you all this season, unfortunately I've had to discontinue the other half the Pokemon avatars due to extenuating circumstances. But I've an alternative, a set of avatars that're bright and full of color, a set of avatars rendered with painstaking love & care, a set of avatars as unique and multifaceted as the community they've been made for.

    Animal Crossing
    (They're a hash taken from New Horizons and Pocket Camp, but there's more from NH)

    Can we request one personal avatar, not a whole bunch of them?

    For myself, personally, I'd like to use this image:

    Unlikely, but in case admins end up satisfying your request, here's the image in proper dimensions:

    So now they're started accepting trivial works of lesser artists but not including these masterpieces from the Numenera Collector's edition?

    The latest in avatar gallery innovation! Got a game with non-square shaped portrait images? Instead of manually cropping them, try applying ~deep learning~ to automatically locate the faces and extract them. Here's the rather simple Python source code, which makes use of this library: https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition

    Code:
    import face_recognition
    import os
    import PIL
    
    PORTRAIT_EXT = ".png"
    OUTPUT_DIR = "Output"
    
    def expand_portrait(startY, endY, expand, maxHeight):
        offset = min(startY, int(expand/2))
        startY -= offset
        expand -= offset
    
        offset = min(maxHeight-endY, expand)
        endY += offset
        expand -= offset
    
        startY -= min(startY, expand)
    
        return startY, endY
    
    if not os.path.exists(OUTPUT_DIR):
        os.mkdir(OUTPUT_DIR)
    
    for portrait_filename in [filename for filename in os.listdir() if filename.endswith(PORTRAIT_EXT)]:
        portrait = face_recognition.load_image_file(portrait_filename)
        locations = face_recognition.face_locations(portrait)
        if not locations:
            locations = face_recognition.face_locations(portrait, number_of_times_to_upsample=2, model="cnn")
    
        for index, location in enumerate(locations):
            startY, endX, endY, startX = location
            startY, endY = expand_portrait(startY, endY, portrait.shape[1]-(endY-startY), portrait.shape[0])
    
            result = portrait[startY:endY, :]
    
            result_filename = portrait_filename if index == 0 else os.path.splitext(portrait_filename)[0] + str(index) + PORTRAIT_EXT
            PIL.Image.fromarray(result).save(OUTPUT_DIR + os.sep + result_filename)
    
    And here it is applied to Expeditions: Conquistador, which had a crappy and incomplete JPG avatar gallery:
