    [​IMG] fits the size requirements why will it not work?

    It's 1 KB and generates random color codes!

    Probably because the script checks file extensions. A dynamic image could introduce malicious code onto the page, which is why dynamic images are not accepted in most cases.

    Animated gifs are OK, if they meet the size requirements.

    He means a dynamically created image. If you check the image properties you'll see the image is named code.php because the image gets created dynamically by some PHP code.

    I understand that. I explained what's permitted. Animated gifs are the only "changing" avatars you can have.
