Problems with using gif in Avatar
I've been trying for a long time now to try to use a gif for an Avatar, and for what ever reason, it's not working. When I make the avatar, the gif becomes an image and just shows the very first image you see in the gif.
I have made sure the image size is the correct size, if it isn't, the site always tells me the size or remote file is too big, so the size isn't the issue unless there's something different with gifs as avatars. I save a gif that is small enough to be used as an avatar, but then when I browse for it to use it as an avatar, I put it in and it's no longer a gif.
I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong here. Can someone please give me some guidance in regards to how to do this properly? Like if there's something different I'm supposed to do with gifs rather than just regular images for your avatar?
