Using a .gif for avatar

I've seen a few folks (i.e. Rae) who have managed to upload a .gif for their avatar, but for the life of me, I can't get it to work. I know a .gif can't be uploaded directly, so I hosted it on Photobucket, but when I post the URL, it says "Invalid URL." I've double-checked it a half dozen times. What am I doing wrong???

Did you try saving it to your computer and uploading it by selecting browse?

Yes. And it said "you cannot upload animated images for avatar" or something along those lines.

Correct. I dont know how she got it to work. But apparently it's her secret.

Also...PB's direct links won't work for av's for some reason. Not just .gifs but any old .jpg too.

It's an easy fix. Shan has to release the restriction on animated gifs for avatars. I have had more fun with screwing with people with avatars on boards that don't enforce the restrictions and put a flash avy with music and would just annoy the piss out of people to try and figure out where it was coming from.

Ahhh, good to know. I'll ask Rae then... I know she said she encountered trouble at first, but she got it working eventually.

I didn't realize they specifcally weren't ALLOWED, I just thought it was a problem in the way I had it hosted or something.

It does not appear to be listed in the avatar thread in the site rules section.

FYI: Rae had an animated avatar because she was part of a secondary usergroup I added her to in order to fix a problem a long time ago. I never removed that secondary group and should have.
