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

Furthermore it bugs me that the RM at xenforo.com uses rounded avatars forr the RM thumbnails :p

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

this may be just a trivial question but just wondering what are other members opinions if they prefer rounded or square avatars?
lol funny how this topic has come up..I just updated my profile pic on FB...and was just astonished how much a circle crops off from our regular squares coming from our cameras...
Squares FTW...always!

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.
