I thought as its a new year I would change my avatar for a new one. Found one I liked and made sure it was the right size etc, and when I tried to upload it, I got a message saying animations weren't allowed. Erm aren't all the forum avatars animations anyway ??

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 15.6 KB (whichever is smaller).
You image is 120x102 and its 16.4KB. So t wont work anyway. :)

Gifs are animations, but most Avatars would be jpgs.

I've had a look at the forum setting and it's set to disable animated profile pics for the main usergroups, as we've seen some huge filesize and distracting images in the past. That one you had isn't distracting, but it's hard to filter them out on a case by case basis so it was disabled overall a while back. :)
