can you copy the link into a shared folder? If so, please send me a PM with the respective link, I'd update your user account, this might work.
I have no experience with those moving avatars but I'd give it a try, using a link from a shared folder. Might work.
I could never get any of my old gifs to work on here, But a couple newer ones did. Maybe it's not compatible with the website's Operating platform. IDK, but that's my experience...I'm not sure what it is about the older ones that make them incompatible and unable to move.
I make the animated gif with Photoshop, but of course there are other free programs for Mac and Windows.
When the gif is done you can check it easily when you drag the file from the dektop into a browser like Safari, Firefox, Explorer. When it works there -then it works also in our Forum - nothing Forum related with this.
Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 120 pixels or 293.0 KB (whichever is smaller).
Sorry to bring this thread back up, but my .gif avatar worked on the first try. I think that it was a problem with the .gif size (physically and memory wise, not many forums allow avatars over 1Mb to cut down on bandwidth or something like that).
It is a size issue. Just changed my avatar to a animated gif. The first didn't work-because it was too large (I think you can make them smaller at some site?) but then noted the size limit and the one I loaded works fine. See=aaaahhhhhhhh
