    How do I get mine animated? I used an animated gif, but it's not working. Yet, I see everyone else's does... What gives?

    I bet that the software resizes the original and it won't work. You probably need an animated gif that is the exact size for avatars that are animated.

    This one I thought was... It was designed just for an avatar.

    It's 100 x 100 and 17 kb. I think that's well under the limits... well now that Derek changed the Avatars to 100 x 100.

    Something probably got lost in the uploading. If you do a "view image" on the avatar, you'll see simply a plain static image, even without the forum software involved.

    What's weird. If right click and choose "Save Picture As," when I pull it up it's good. I've tried several animated gif's and they don't work for me.

    When I view it as a stand along image it doesn't show either.

    Gee, thanks, Adam. [rolleyes] Just what we needed, a glittering Sox gif. What's next, C-pher - offers for a mortgage in your sig file? [wink]
