    File size would be my guess, or perhaps, the avatar thing wont accept .png files. Not sure it might just be one of those mysteries that never gets solved.

    I dunno. If you check my user page, Chuck still has a white background there. The .pngs were under the file size limits, and the .gif versions are even smaller. Whole thing seems buggy to me.




    Here's the Planet Cult logo.

    For a change of pace, this is a SMAC image, believe it or not.

    Morgan logo.

    ...That University logo above looks a little shaby. I should do something about that...

    Drone logo.


    ...Let's see if, as usual, bumping this thread results in at least one post somewhere else in minutes. Been a bit quiet here today...

    While I was changing my avatar, I noticed that there are predefined avatars for

    Civilization Revolution
    Civ 4 BTS
    Civ 4 Warlords
    Civilization IV
    Civilization III
    Civilization II
    Civilization
    Misc
    Fantasy
    Sci Fi

    None of them contain SMAC images. I wonder if we should risk angering CFC admins by suggesting that they could take the images in this thread and make them available as predefined SMAC avatars.

    Sorry, double post caused by problem with internet connection.

    Buster's Uncle, good job with the SMAC avatars. I'm going to try the Voracious avatar for awhile.

    I prefer quitely doing my art and trying to stay off the radar. However, you make an excellent point, and I hope someone will see fit to contact them. AC should be represented.
    Thank you for saying so. I'm flattered you liked the background recolor I did so much.

    Would you like a non-scanlined copy of the picture? Did you size/crop it yourself, of will it do a size/crop that radical automatically?
