    Default Avatar Transparency

    What's with the fact the forums don't want to support transparent avatars? It throws a white background up on the transparent part of a PNG file. I seem to remember it being able to support transparency in the past. Just thought I'd throw it out there to see if it;s something that can be fixed.

    You probably saved the .png file with a white background. But the forums do support it, otherwise Dwarfs sig wouldn't work.

    I'm aware sigs work fine; but avatars don't work fine. It's not an issue with the forums as a whole, just that part, which is why I made the comment that I didn't know if it could be fixed (perhaps it's not broken at all, and is meant to be that way).

    And yes, I did save it with a transparent background, so no, it's not me being dumb.

    Current avatar. It's saved as a png with a transparent bg. I use a different image and it doesn't work (Lightstar's current avatar - which doesn't display at all except on his profile page). I try a third image (just another random transparent one I have) and it works fine. Maybe it's just finicky.
