At the GIS Stack Exchange we currently have a Community Ad that displays as below:

enter image description here

whereas the GIS Meta Answer from which it is derived looks like this:

The OSGEO Conference

The instructions to Community Ad posters is that

The image that you create must be 300 x 250 pixels, or double that if high DPI.

Is it a bug that a different sized image can be posted and displayed?

    I don't believe there has ever been anything in the code that attempts to check the image sizes. We've always depended on manual intervention when something is wrong. – animuson Mar 25 at 23:00
  • Are you going to change this into a feature request? If not, think it's more a support question than bug report. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Mar 26 at 9:09
  • @ShadowWizardisEarForYou I thought I'd leave it to the mods/CMs to decide how they wanted it handled. I have no objection to them changing its leading tag and setting a status on it. – PolyGeo Mar 26 at 9:30
  • This could be fixed with a height: auto;, to be fair – Sébastien Renauld Mar 26 at 12:45

As commented by @Animuson:

I don't believe there has ever been anything in the code that attempts to check the image sizes. We've always depended on manual intervention when something is wrong.

and they have proceeded to delete the posts with the incorrectly sized images.

This clears the way for a correctly sized image to be included in the original post (to then be undeleted by an SO staff member or a GIS SE moderator) or a new similar post.


A correctly sized image was provided by @Rob and used to replace the original image in the original post. It now displays well when its turn in the Community Ad rotation comes up:
