    When the site resizes an animated picture, the picture stops being animated. If you want the picture to work, you have to make sure that it's well below the maximum file size requirements before you upload it.

    To everyone who hates animated avatars: Yes, they're annoying. But that doesn't mean that knowledge should be suppressed! [​IMG] I've turned off avatars in my profile settings, so I don't even see them any more.

    Really, I'm a computer idiot.
