To top it off plenty of sites force the quality settings of the algorithm to a very low size setting which leads to even more compression artefacts. The users really can't do much to fix this.
Well that sucks. The png versions of my tags aren't usable here.

I'm using imgur. I've been using that for quite a while but it has never happened to me before in imgur
in fact, I switched to imgur from photobucket because of the quality degrading thing.

thank you guys
