Me too. Gilbert's gets a pass because it's really cool, though.

Actually I myself don't like animated avatars too, at least those with huge file size(usually created from FMVs) and are too distracting.

Mine was actually originally meant to be an (in)joke in a certain community, and I made the image so it seemed to be static at first (there is a relatively long delay in the 1st frame, 10s or 20s I couldn't remember) and readers of forum threads not aware of this might be surprised by either i) found that it was suddenly animated, or ii) saw the image and not showing much interest, looked somewhere else, and then when they looked at it again it's been changed.

The irony was that, I never used it in that target community, since its forums didn't offer space for storing images, and it was at a time when free image hosting had much space and monthly-access constraints, etc.(unlike nowadays that you get GIGAbytes of storage by signing up to a free webmail service), even though this avatar was quite small compared to many other "photo-realistic" or animated ones. Also, many other forums just didn't accept GIFs or automatically converted ones' avatar into JPEG or PNG, which beat the purpose of it.
