    Animated Avatars

    Are animated avatars limited to a select group? ie moderators or previous moderators?

    I found one that I want to use, but my avatar is just showing the first image in the gif.

    It needs to be below 20KB and 100x100. If it's above that it will be automatically resized into a still image (with bad quality)

    Also it can't be flashy / seizure inducing.

    Yeah what the second post from Baekhyun said is likely the issue. There is no prohibition on using animated gifs as a non-mod, so if you upload one and it doesn't move, it was likely oversized and got reduced.

    I am making one of the Dark Mark moving, I have compressed and taken out slides, but I cannot get it under that 20kb threshold. Maybe I should find a totally cute and adorable dancing blue dinosaur instead.

    You can ask here(clicky) and see if one of them can do something with the one you have in mind.
