It's the number of instructables someone has published. :)

I noticed that the images tend to be 48x48. I used these dimensions when uploading an image.

My question is: Do I need to use these dimensions, or will the system automatically make the necessary adjustments? I have noticed that some of the images on the site are larger than 48x48!

Thanks

A

The system will show the image at the appropriate size. It's god to make it bigger than 48x48, because it will be shown on your profile page in a larger size.

Note - avatar images and project thumbnails are all cropped to "square".

Something to bear in mind.

The hand is the default Instructables image. If a forum topic has no image, or a member has no avatar, then the hand is used instead.

No, they meant the hand and number under the avatars (like your red-backed 17).
