    So i noticed as I posted this morning I have reached 6502, but i can't figure out how to upload my avatar? I can see the edit avatar option but theres no way to upload anything, it just has the no avatar selected option there. :(
    any suggestions?

    It takes a little while for it to show up. Soon enough, you should see something like I've attached below....

    yeah, you could do that, but it'd be a shame to get the boot, wouldn't it? The wasteland isn't all that inviting.

    Are there any tips on making it animated? So many people have cool animated avatars. I haven't much experiece with that...but when I get one I want it to be really exciting... like applemacdudes dancing bananas :)

    You become a Mac Rumors 6502 (and can upload an avatar) at 500 posts.

    Photoshop and ImageReady are probably the best way to put together a good animated GIF. Simply make each frame its own layer.

    Well, there's GifFun and GifBuilder, but neither of them are really any good (GifFun's GIF's are too big, and GifBuilder's are low quality).
    And if you used one of those, you'd still probably need something Photoshop-esque to create the frames for the animation.
