Bring back the square pfps!!

Greetings citizens of planet minecraft! 🌎

-The what & how: 🤔
Today I wanted to suggest a new feature to PMC, and to simply put it, we would like to have a way to customise the shape of our profile pictures back to the older square shape that it used to be. The way this could be implemented is by adding it within the "Profile" options. You can make the default be the circular profile picture, and then being able to change it later on.

-The why: 🥸
Well, there are many, maaany reasons why to give us this option, but I'll list 5 for now:

1- All image formats are square in shape, there are no image formats that are circular.
2- It stylistically fits the minecraft theme more because everything in minecraft is based on being cubic or square shaped.
3- Imagine drawing something that took you many hours to finish, or taking a picture for yourself with two or more of your friends, and you decide to set one of them as your profile picture, you'll instantly realise that almost a big chunk of the image is now hidden because of the image being visually converted to a circular look, which might in our chase remove a big chuck of the drawing, or two of the people in the picture.
4- A big part of the website is already designed is a square or rectangular formation, so it would make more sense to also make the pfp square to fit the aesthetic.
5- Lastly it gives us another way to customise, and personalise our experience on the website.

Also if you have a very low resolution pfp it would help.

This could be cool combined with Spynxies' request for cropable images.

That would be a great feature. How about when uploading your profile picture, it will prompt you with customizable options, which will look something like this in any order:

Optional: Create Or Edit Your Own Profile Picture Gif
If you want, you will have the choice to create your own profile picture gif or edit an already existing one.
You can upload pictures for each frame, but there is still a size limit to how many frames there can be. You will be able to choose the speed of the gif. You will also have a choice to choose if it's transparent. This would be useful since I don't like how I have to go back to gif websites to trim out or compress frames just to let PMC accept the profile picture which should just take a minute instead of 2 or more minutes depending on how much I have to compress the gif.

Choose The Shape Of Your Profile Picture
- Circle (Default)
- Square (Classic)

Optional: Zoom In On A Certain Part Of Your Profile Picture
Your profile picture will be here, where you can zoom in to where ever you want, similar to how you zoom in on editing softwares. This will be mainly useful for gifs.

Optional: Stretch Your Profile Picture
You can stretch your profile picture to fit the profile picture range, I always hated how if the picture is out of the profile picture range, it will automatically squish it with no option to stretch your profile picture the way you want.
This will be mainly useful for gifs.

Safety Check
Your profile picture will be checked by moderators and bots to see if it's appropriate. If it's appropriate, it will pass the check, bringing you to your profile page with your updated profile picture. If it's not appropriate, it will fail the check, giving you a description of what's not appropriate.
