    I uploaded an animated avatar and for some reason it's not moving. I did a direct upload of the file from Camino--gif file, btw.

    Some users have animated avatars. What's the problem from my end?

    Here is a linked image from the web of the animation. I tried uploading by using the url, but then I get an error message that the linked file is too big.

    Didn't/doesn't someone else have that avatar? Used to see it around a lot here a year or so ago... the dude with the cowbell.

    yeow, please don't ue that avatar!:eek:

    It gets extremely repetitive after about 3 posts in one thread. The good news is it isn't 200px in size like the last time I saw it :rolleyes:

    Doing something or other to compress the file some more should solve your problem though.

    It's Will Ferrell from one of his best SNL skits.

    So basically 32k is not small enough? How can I compress this file?

    Keep in mind that if the mods decide your 'tar is moving too fast/too much, you may have to slow it down as well.

    Don't want you to be blindsided. ;)

    Avs need to be 75x75 pixels and the previously-stated size.

    vBulletin automatically shrinks large (dimensions and size) avatars and then resaves them as JPEGs. In the case of .gif avatars, it only saves the first frame.
