Wow. All I did was open up an image in GIMP, crop a square, and scale it to 48x48.

It became a fever.

Yeah, all the merit goes to Mr. Dan Perkins aka Tom Tomorrow, but hey, one can boast an itsy bitsy teeny contribution, right?

3. Thank you for explaining that.
I was wondering what the deal was with those avatars all of a sudden.

5. all other woodchuck images are being deleted
Swampy came up with a variation and I posted an LOLccat with a woodchuck and both were deleted.

30. That's, um, pitiful.
So now cheering for war, privatizing public schools and union busting is hunky dorey, but posting pics of woodchucks is verboten? Just...wow.

9. And have to choose between spending lots of money and breaking the law? No thanks.
For casual image manipulation like this, GIMP is more than enough. And no, you don't need Linux. It runs on Windows too. And MacOS too, if I'm not mistaken.

7. I'd love to use the woodchuck,
but I haven't been able to upload a new image since I uploaded the very first one when that function became available. Apparently I have to delete it or something, to make room for a new image, and don't know how.

I think it's the best DU Avatar I've seen in years.

11. I thought you had to be a donater to upload custom avatars?
Or did that change?

14. No, you still have to be a donor.
Unless the admins decide to add Chuckles to the roster of built-in avatars. Hmmm...

16. Wow.
I did that, and it worked.

But that's the exact same thing I've been doing all along, when it didn't.

Maybe I don't know how to size it correctly?

Anyway, thanks! :hi:

31. I'm keeping my own avatar...
...similarly cropped and resized, plus a little word-balloon removal, from the inimitable Wiley's Non Sequitur.

But if I were to change, Chuckles is Pick Number 1 and Only.
