What is this fuckery????  

URGH it's an addition.
Why can't it just say, "NO SORRY ICON TOO BIG?"

SO.... I opened this support request:

I just went to upload my new userpics, something i've been doing for nearly 8 years, and now there's some retarded EXTRA SECTION after you choose to upload them which makes you re-edit your userpic.

Not only is this freaking annoying when you have 50 userpics to upload, but it is trying to re-size my VERY CAREFULLY pre-sized gif.

What is the point of spending hours making sure the userpic perfectly fits inside your parametres when you have to go through the whole process again when you upload?

1: how do i switch off this irritating function.

2: if i can't turn it off, how do i select my entire userpic? it wants to clip the edges off no matter how i drag that ridiculous selector thing.

because - THE FRAK?


Feeling...: pissed offpissed off

actually i just realised it's an addition if your icon is slightly too big

so instead of them just going 'no' like before, they take you to a whole new screen but NOWHERE on that screen does it say, 'you're here because your icon is too big'

I've had this happen to me before, and it's always been when I accidentally made an icon like 100x101. Try checking the size in photoshop again? Failing that, perhaps it wants you to resize because you're over the 40kb limit? (though if it then doesn't save your pic as an animated gif, that's seriously stupid).

I just uploaded a random gif icon (one of yours, actually *g*), and it worked fine for me, so I don't think there's a universal bug with the update or anything.

That always happens when the icons are suddenly too big. :( I hate this crap.

I just tried uploading an animated icon and it says to me that the icon was uploaded, yet it's not on the list of icons, so something wonky is going on.

Anyway, I just think you may be over the 40kb limit even if by a little...
