Hi! I'm trying to make emoticons in chat but in chat there's always a restriction on the picture. I don't want that restriction. Is there a Mediawiki page to disable the picture minimization function?

I'm from Wild Ones Wiki and it seems it restricts the length and width too! It looks so horrible! How can I deal with this to stop flattening and squeezing the emoticons in chat?

P.S.: Emoticon size 19x19, if 19x50, it will pull you back to 19x19 and the emoticon will squeeze. Wildoneshelper  talk  edits  05:08, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think this is possible. You could try using Special:Contact, or tagging {{staff needed}} and see if any staff can answer this question -- Sam Wang (talk) 02:33, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
It's possible I think but I think it would require codes and put into the javascript. Wildoneshelper  talk  edits  05:54, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
I don't know how to do it with JS, however, following the ways I just replied to your message should work -- Sam Wang (talk) 07:06, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
Emoticons are always designed to be 19x19 and to resize to that size. There's no way to turn that feature off. This is intentional, hard-coded design to limit memory usage on the client-side end of chat. --daNASCAT @Wikia 15:44, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
If you use a rectangle-shaped images as an emoticon, you can make a square-shaped image that the length of each side is the same as the longest side of the rectangle. If you do that, the image won't be "stretched".
