There's a user on Programming Puzzles and Code Golf named Oliver Ni who has a little almost-white dot on an almost-black background as their profile image. Or so I thought, until glancing at the Stack Exchange homepage (on desktop) and seeing a lively geometrical animation in the sidebar. It would seem that while most profile-pic elements in the site look like this:

<img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/Ypz5v.gif?s=16&g=1" alt="Oliver Ni">

The ones on the homepage look like this:

<img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/Ypz5v.gif?size=16&g=1" alt="Oliver Ni">

Compare the first image with the second. As you can see, imgur doesn't take into account the size attribute at all; it should instead be s.

    That's.. actually really cool. But should probably be fixed anyway. – user311528 Oct 11 '16 at 23:33

I corrected the typo in the parameter and the change is live now.
