    Yarin, I believe this forum is meant only for programming related contests. The General forum is more appropriate for that useless stuff.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Does it have to have the 55x55 size?

    >> Yarin, I wonder if my kitty beats your Nermal in the contest.
    IMO, it does. Why do you use a paw instead of that?

    >> Does it have to have the 55x55 size?

    No, it can be any size under 100x100 and 100kb.

    Actually, it can be any size. But I prefer not filling the whole screen with 1 avatar.

    BTW, max, I'm not submitting Nermal, I have a cool animated one I've been wanting to use here for a while.
