    I have just past my 500th post (I need to get out more!) and I would liek to use the avatar at the following website:

    Here

    How do I get this to be animated? At the moment all I get is the first frame and nothing else.

    Thanks.

    The original is too big...avatars have a 75x75 limit, while that one is 80x80. The forum software can automatically shrink avatars when you upload one that is too big, but I assume it can't do that for animated ones and just grabs the first frame and shrinks that.

    You'll have to manually shrink the original to 75x75 pixels (the file size is already fine, so no problems there) and then upload it.
