    I notice that my picture, while correct on my home page, is distorted on the 'player profile' page that everyone else sees.

    The pic I use is 100x100: I assume the particular window on the player profile page stretches this to a 100x150 frame, regardless of its initial size.

    Do we have to use 100x150 images? I had assumed the size limit was memory based, but if it needs to be that exact size for formatting, then so be it. I'll change it.

    Unless I am mistaken, I don't think it has to be that exact pixel size. I think it just has to maintain that 3 x 2 ratio.

    true enough: any 3x2 aspect ratio will work.

    but since I noticed the stretch, I've checked a few others and it is a common problem: some of these 18th century philosophers are starting to look positively skinny!!

    The size for perfect rendering is 150*100.

    Any images of this size will be just fine.

    I had thought that is what is said on the ‘my profile’ page, but in fact, no, it say :

    Ideally, your pictures should be no bigger than 100 pixels wide by 150 pixels high."

    So you have a case.

    finally got around to changing it to a 100x150 image.
    how long did that take me?
    provarication is the spice of... erm... something.
    I'll work out what later.
