Editor for the profile picture on forum

Since the profile picture can’t be uploaded anymore, and must be chosed from a predefined set, I believe an Editor/Composer integrated in the forum would be acceptable and useful.
This can display a map of pixels, with a low resolution, like 10/10, or 20/20 or something, that you can individualy click and change color, from a standard 8bit palet. In this way, members can create unique profile pictures and can’t upload high-res images to impersonate Storj members or inappropriate pics.
The predefined pics have 360x360 res with 24bit color depth, and they are square.
Dosen’t make sense to edit a square pic, if it will be displayed as circle.
So, a circle would be more practical, and it can be split into sectors, like the HDD ( :wink:). You could have a central disk of a color, and 2-3 rows of 4 or 8 sectors, with a total of 25 zones.
Or you could offer users more options by spliting the disk in different shapes, not just sectors, even like a puzzle with intricate shapes.
If you like the ideea, vote for it with Hearts.

We restricted usage of picture profiles to limit attempts to impersonate staff members.
So we actually do not have a lot of options, what we could allow. Either generated random, or from pre generated.

However, you may try to link your profile to the GitHub, it should take a picture from there.

We also may enable gravatars.
