Hi guys, we've released a small update today to the way images are handled on the site. Images that were previously stretched or skewed should be properly sized now and images that are much wider or skinnier than 'standard' image sizes have a small border placed around them. This is similar to movies being letterboxed when a widescreen version is shown on a smaller TV.

We're still working on a long term solution that will involve redesigning a few key pages to elegantly accomodate image sizes, but this should help.

There is currently one issue with this release that we're aware of:
1) The default forum avatar looks funky.

This should be resolved shortly.

One additional benefit of this release is that most public images are now loaded from a CDN, which should make most pages load a bit faster Smile
