Yeah... I'm confused. I've been trying to make an animated GIF my avatar here on the forum.. but it doesn't seem to be working. I've tried using the URL, even saving the GIF (I checked and it's still animated on my comp) and uploading it. It only uploads as a still image... I have no clue what i am doing wrong and tried a forum search for the answer to this, but to no avail. So... Can anyone help me out? My av isn't really quite as entertaining as a still... >>

It might be that the image is too big to work as a gif with our constraints?
You might have to lower the quality of the gif for it to work.

Interesting. Thanks for the info.
I guess I'll try to play around with it for a bit and see if I can get it to work.
It's funny, it's such a short loop animation (literally only about 1 second).. Maybe it's just too big in its original form.

gifs are complicated little bitches.
i spent forever making a tumblr gif that was only about 3 seconds and even then i had to fix the colors, the size and all these other things so it would upload to be usable on the site.
