      Yeah, same for me. Of course that means every other instance of the avatar is also transparent, which is not optimal but not too big of a deal. Weird. Anyway, great directions, this looks much better!

    This is very useful because of the unfortunate fashion of forcing user images to be circular because it’s very difficult to find a picture of anything that doesn’t look awkward in that shape. The ability to get rid of it completely makes that sign in page look much better.

    I changed that pic to a custom avatar image long ago.
