The size of avatars shrunk noticeably for everyone on the site a day or two ago. They are now incredibly small and I hope that this will be resolved soon.
@the_kidd: @supermanthor: @magian: @jedixman: @quintus_knightfall: @heatblaze: @higherpower: I believe it's a bug since several avatars don't actually fit the borders they've been given as you can occassionally see the black borders that are normally hidden.
Why this has occured I don't know. I'm just not expecting a fix anytime soon.
The avatars is half the fun of this site with how users interact with each other over them. I would like to think it's a buy as many have pointed out, but I believe it's quite intentional. Notice how the avatars now take a new shape and the corners are more rounded and the left and right side of the avatar has curves. This looks like an intentional design choice.
I hope enough people complain and make it vocal to the mods so they will take notice and revert it back to the old style.
Do hope they fix that soon. They should have make them bigger, not smaller.
I actually would not mind that at all. This site does a really good job with how it sizes its Avatars and might be something worth the CV team to look into. https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=239676 It allows for tall or wide avatars based on the photo. I personally just want my large avatars back :P I already got a new one lined up for EndGame :)
