Animated Avatars?
I tried to upload a gif yesterday, that was 80x80 and under 100 pixels, but it said you're not allowed to have animated avatars. I have, however, now noticed that at least one other member (just a normal member, not a Mod or anything) of the boards has an animated icon.

I was wondering if I'd done anything wrong in uploading it, or why we're not allowed animated icons?

At some point back the software that runs the forum added the ability to check for an animated avatar. This feature is going to be reserved for members that upgrade their accounts (so they can have a 160x80 animated avatar). If another member has a regular sized animated avatar then they uploaded it before the software chages and can keep it as long as they don't change it. If they want to change their avatar, the system will check to see if it is animated and then deny their request if they are not an upgraded member...

Oh right. I still find it strange though, as I believe that this avatar only came up recently, as they were previously without an avatar. I think it's literally only come up in the last couple of weeks.

Nevermind though, I'll just have to see about getting some money to put aside for upgrading my account

Animated Avatars
I was wondering why we couldn't get animated avatars, yet I've seen some people with them.

Animated Avatars?
I see some users here with animated avatars. I was wondering how I could do that? Is it only for Paid Account Memembers?

Thanks in advance.

I think tFS used to allow users to have animated avatars but later stopped. The ones still using them are those who haven't changed their avatars since then.

At least, that's what I believe is true.

I find animated avatars annoying and distracting. I feel they should NOT be allowed at all.

Okay thanks Hanne & everyone for clearing it up.

As long as an animated avatar doesn't go a million miles an hour with tons of images and give me a total headache, it's only mildly annoying to me.

But I'm an upgraded member and I just tried to upload an animated avatar and it just told me this: "You may not upload animated images." I really wanted one.
