I've been going through various options and disabled the circular avatars for the moment. Truth be told, I'm not sure whether I prefer the new circular styling or the traditional rectangular look. So let's have a poll and see what people think.

Square. Any avatar image someone uploads is going to be a square, so why not just see the whole thing.

Yeah, circular avatars are a daft trend, imo. I suppose if everyone uses photos of their faces it looks alright, but for the vast majority of images we might use it's just a senseless nuisance.

Don't really care as it's mostly a personal nitpick issue once again.

Seen plenty of those on the other thread. 🤭

If we are compromising, we could also go for an octagon. It still has sides and looks a bit circular :)

Square was my vote. It's hip to be square. (lame reference to old pop song)

Fine with either but voted circles if only because it helps break up all the lines and boxiness.

Ah, you edited your post. I was just going to ask whether you kept your circle with an alpha channel. Given that this is an option, it seems better to let people fit a circle to a square, than a square to a circle.

I like circular better but as Arhu pointed out everyone can decide on his/her own anyway.
