Default GIF as an avatar?

Hi there,

My current avatar is an animated GIF, but its only showing up as a standard picture, is it due to the size?

Thanks

Yeah, it's too big. 120.9kb is the limit. It can be tricky to find good quality gifs under that size. I'd say it's easier to stick with gifs in sigs unless you happen to find a great avatar size one that fits under the limit.

Like ABH said, finding suitable gifs to fit the avatar size limit can be a real pain in the ass. I'd been trying to use a gif of Indica Renegade as an avy these last few days but just gave up and stuck to a normal pic when I couldn't get it small enough no matter how hard I tried to resize or crop it.

It's a really a pain resizing gifs to try and get them as an avy. Thankfully my current one was already perfect.

I know how you feel. It'd be nice if there was a way the staff could increase the file size limit to around 300 KB or so, because trying to meet it with a gif is a total bitch.

Probably just best to use the request thread and hope for the best. King Crash use to be the best at fitting the gifs into avys. But he's not active there anymore.
