    Question Forum Profile Pictures

    Just a curious thought:

    Why are profile pictures limited to 100 px? (Really it should be 128 px because that's a more common logo size)
    &
    Why can't you use a Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg) file as your profile picture?

    1. It's the size that are chosen and it fits the forum layout nicely. You can use Gimp to scale a picture.

    2. AFAIK .svg is not supported as profile/avatar format in the forum software. You can easily export an .svg to eg. .png in inkscape.
