It seemed to me that the merge of >>1208424 (merged) into >>2892942 should have gone the opposite way - the older picture was PNG and didn’t have artifacts that the newer picture has, and the newer picture is just upscaled without any more actual detail.

If I had to guess, it’s a combo of
  1. Spambots being motivated to keep their numbers up
  2. It’s way easier for good-faith users to start talking wildly off-topic than to accidentally break the other rules

Also, deleted images (Rules #1, #3, #5) are naturally hidden and hard to notice unless you go looking for them specially, and Rule #2 almost never has any visible signs.

Why does profile picture file size have to be 300 KB? I want to use a screencap for my avatar but it keeps saying that the resolution is too high no matter how hard I edit it down or compress it. Is there a way that I can use it without going through all this trouble again?

@Mr.Myoozik
Because if you’re on a slow or metered connection (which many people are, like using cheap mobile plans), loading up a forum page or image with 50 comments and each have a “large” unique avatar could mean quite a bit of bandwidth use.
300kb should be more than enough for a 500x500 JPEG; I did a quick check just now and a 2048x1536 screencap like >>2903740 resaved as a JPEG with minimal compression comes down to just over 300kb.

Can confirm. The connection where I was when I just loaded this is kinda slow and it took almost a minute to load this forum page. Making the file size higher would probably not be wise.
