Just curious... :lol: I thought it was time for a makeover.

Also, is there a better place to put this? Well, actually, it's a simple yes or no question anyway.

Edit: Wait, I'm an idiot, bazz has one... That was pointless. :lol:

If it belongs somewhere, it's probably on the forum section about board maintenance: viewforum.php?f=13

I dunno why you have to ask the question though, just upload a GIF as your avatar and see what happens.

It's because it's not built yet, and I don't want to waste my time if it's not possible.

If he hasn't made the GIF already, asking before he starts could save him some time, and he might not want to have a random unrelated GIF stolen from somewhere as his avatar for a few seconds while testing. The question really should be in the phpBB section, though.

There's a lot of people on the forum with animated avatars, so it's definitely supported.

If he'd just uploaded a random GIF his question would have been answered several minutes ago. I could test it myself right now, but I'm trying to encourage the principle of learning things for yourself, so I'd rather waste more time typing this response than it would take just to figure out the answer and tell him. Principles, right? Hrm.

Why would a few seconds of avatar being "wrong" be a problem?

I don't know, maybe he's having a conversation with someone and doesn't want to confuse that person? Or maybe he just doesn't want to be associated with random images in case someone sees the temporary avatar. Whatever. I wouldn't mind having a wrong avatar for a few seconds, but maybe someone else does.

NOO!!! :cry: I didn't know there was a file size limit of only 20KB...

Somehow, I'll try and make this smaller: (I'll only have room for about 3 frames. :lol: )

Edit: Screw it, it's impossible to make it look good. I thought I was exaggerating by saying 3 frames, but it actually has to be that (and 80x80 pixels instead of 100x100.)

Animated GIF size restrictions just reminded me of the time in Nsider fourms when I programed some lossy compression scheme to produce a 121 framed 129KB GIF file.
I've completely forgot what the original size was but I can dig up those old files from my archive if you are interested.

Edit: I removed the image embed, as the image itself wasn't really relevant.

You can always host the image yourself to avoid any size limits. But please be thoughtful of other users of the forum who might be on limited connections and may not want to download multi-megabyte avatars.

<-- Thought I'm just not active enough to have people noticed my avatar(or they just didn't wait enough).

Every animated avatar I've seen on NESDev so far is relatively subdued, but a busy, bright animated avatar will irritate more than a couple people.

If you want an animated avatar, you know where to find it.
