    I prefer circles myself. On my site I use circles to my advantage and give my users custom borders based on user group.

    For a given perimeter, that would maximize the bounded area, plus the symmetry of regular polygons is visually appealing. :)

    Yeah, I miss them. Square was best as default. Just like I miss the big versions of avatars in the old membercard :(

    your screen is square, most forums are made up of right angles which are square if you join enough together.

    circles just look weird...

    I don't have a round forum....

    Exactly, changing to a circle lops off over 20% of the image. Very annoying when you actually want to see a high quality/large version of the image in it's entirety.

    I found circle avtars good on some forum softwares like vanilla and flarum. But SMF, Xenforo looks good with the square avtars. Maybe it's just me on the design side.
