Avatars?

Hi, I'm relatively new here, and I'm wondering what the deal is with the avatars? I don't know if this is meant to be displayed like this? The image selections are rectangular, but the actual display window crops the image into a circle, which ends up in a lot of the default avatars here looking kind of funny with the left half of the visible image showing on the right half of the circle, kind of like mine. Is this intentional, or is this some legacy thing that didn't get updated along with the forum over time?

They were rectangular in the past but when Lithium updated our forums 6 months or so ago, they went to the cropped circle look.  I think it’s something that we will just have to live with unfortunately.

Yes. Believe it's Regular Contributor before you can change your avatar with a custom image.
