Greetings again!

So here is a naive question from a new user.  Why does my thumbnail image display correctly in my guilds forums but not here?  Is this something that could be changed on these forums so that my thumbnail image will display without being squashed on these forums?

Thanks for any and all insights!

In each guild setting there exists the ability to 'force' avatar sizes.   Many like yours and mine, do not do this, and therefore our avatars look like they should.  Some, and this one being one of them, DO force all avatar images down to a standard size. 

There's nothing we can do as users of this particular forum to change that, and I don't think that it'd be in the best interested of the Admin Community to have avatars being what they are on the individual user sites.

Thanks Terratonic.  So this effect is something that the Admin of this board specifically choose to do.  That's good to know.  Too bad we can not select a different thumbnail for this board as compared to my guild board.  But definitely not a big deal.  I am much less concerned about how the thumbnail looks here versus on my guild board! 

Thanks again for the info.
