    Well apparently I went over my 500 posts and can use an avatar.

    <------ see?


    But its an animated gif.

    Does MR not do the animation?

    As demonstrated by many other members avatars, MR does indeed support animated gifs.

    Your profile pic is animated, but your avatar is indeed static. Can you post the gif you are trying to use for your avatar here?

    You can't go over 19.5KB! Drat! There goes my idea for having the Lord of The Rings as my avatar.... Can it be bigger if I the person hosts it themselves?

    Nope, all avatars are hosted by MR. They cannot be hosted else where.

    Go to "User CP" and click on "Edit Avatar." You can then upload your avatar.

    My anus is bleeding
    Shot of a brainscan
    Invader Zim blinking
    South Park image of me
    Red faced Samurai Jack
    Wolfenstein 3D Nazi being shot
    AIM icon of Dr. Doom dancin
    AIM icon of Amingo dancin

    I believe he's referring to the "Bush: Worst President Ever" pic. Anytime you bring politics into things, someone's going to vehemently disagree with you.

    Ah, the option finally showed up. I thought that was the way to do it, I just didn't see the option before - it took some time to show up I suppose.

    thats the point, anyone who actually is offended by such a benign thing as an image I incorporated into a 75x75 pixel animated gif deserves to be flamed.
