    Not much to explain beyond that it would fix how terrible any pfp looks that has transparency by shoving in a white backdrop. Especially for those who use a predominantly dark theme as illustrated in the picture attached.

    Have you tried a black backdrop instead?

    Alas at the same time that alienates light theme users. :/
    Still shocked they exist.
    I guess I can do a little bit to fix it by adding a background to it but it would be nice if the background could simply match whatever a person was using if transparency actually worked.

    I usually "work around" this by using a pink or other fitting colour background on the image. Would be nice to have transparency support instead.

    I agree with this.
    I found it pretty sad when I noticed transparency was gone after the update.

    Wait, this place had transparency support before? Huh. Well, at least the static in my icon looks funky. (and kinda unique imo)

    Yep, and the new site redesign removed it.
    Either on purpose or it was overlooked. I didn't really mind but yeah xD

    Huh, interesting. I thought this place never had it, or, at least never had it for .gif pfps.

    Gif support has always been wack.
    It won't animate, and transparency would get corrupted, just like how your avatar looks like.

    Well...it's not completely gone...if you click a on a person and look at there profile preview it does indeed work. That's the thing that gives me some hope...and makes me think it was overlooked. Chances are the white is just a default placeholder for where the picture goes and said placeholder doesn't auto update with theme changing...I could also just be completely wrong.

    That was pretty much what I thought as well.

    I've made a slight tweak and transparent avatars are now supported. The background isn't completely transparent so it doesn't disrupt the styler but it looks a lot better now.

    Let me know if anyone notices any problems caused by this change.
