Hate the round avatar display.

Title says it all. Ruins the actual photo composition/cropping.

Also the inability to click on avatar in person's profile to see full size pic.

agreed but avatars have traditionally not linked to the full photo (i.e. instagram). the work around is most folks have the photo buried in their general photos section, i found yours there, nice shot by the way.

When I click on the round, ( set by Corporate?) picture it takes me to your page and a square version of the same picture.

He is saying the square photo on his page is cropped and the avatar (circle) is cropped even further which ruins the photo. 

 here is the original https://www.mountainproject.com/photo/111837820

Not just referring to my photo, but so many site wide.

Point #2, inability to click on avatar in person's profile to see full size pic: Avatar pics are not necessarily in the member's photo album. Take Kurt and Michael Schnieder's avatars, Really does not do justice in posting a pic in the first place. Images not improved by visiting the profile page.

Am I the only person on this forum who reads Michael Schneider's comments and wonders "is he having a stroke or am I"?

yeah, this part really sucks. Some people have really cool photos as their avatar and I want to see.

semi- private messenger system used to retort too 

very curious as to what it is,  that Nolan failed to understand? I am only sure that no one is stroking out over anything I say

well? there is one troll but hey

Just to update everyone, I've spent the last couple of minutes decoding said email, and though I'm still figuring out how to respond to it, I'm sure it's the best email I've ever received

What can I say? if you need a decoder ring there is one at the bush, under the final cap-stone, where you go Right and up to the clean streak in the lichen. This is above  the face, after the crux on "Modern Times",

the bush now blocks, V2  

That would be "The Direct"


I keep Hot mail for this site, alone ,and for Sierra Trading Post

It’s about the fact we can’t see the her entire Audi beanie. Square picture peg doesn’t fit in round avatar hole

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
