I noticed that with some recent board upgrades, seems like any avatar I try ends up getting stretched into a square when it displays. The image gets stretched outta shape too. Seems like rectanglular ones used to display in their normal scale. Is there a trick to using a non-square pic for an avatar and not getting it stretched to fit?

Actually that is a side effect of one of the upgrades. There had been some issue with the offsite hosted avatars. There were a few that were so big that were full screen width. So the short answer is that a rectangular avatar will get stretched or shrunk to 80x80.
