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???
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.
