Default animated avatars

Since when am I not allowed to upload animated avatars? Can veteran users claim exemption from that rule? ...'Cause I've got a nice Christmas avatar prepared.

Hosting it from elsewhere doesn't work either, btw.

They must've uploaded them before the rule went into effect. I used to have animated avatars all the time too.

I just tried uploading some random animated gif, and it worked.

There's a pretty harsh file size limit, but I'm not aware that animated gifs are prevented. I'll soon see when I get around to making my christmas one.

Ok, so the message is, 'You may not upload animated images." I don't know if it exclusively applies to me. I also don't see why someone would place restrictions on my account.

Must have something to do with the recent upgrade.

I tried it to upload yours and get the same message.

I'm getting the same message when I upload stuff from my computer. How odd...

EDIT: Same problem when I upload a GIF of my own making (of the right size) onto my own webspace and then tell AG to link to it. Any answers, moderators?

Oh, moderators are only lesser gods and are not privy to advanced things like that. I did let know powers-that-be, however, so the matters should soon be investigated into.

I've been trying your animated snowfall idea, and it wound up looking more like maggoty thingies crawling across a dark blue background...

^^^ EWWW, maggots. Had too many up and close encounters with them. Blech.

@AFGNCAAP: CAAPsie, you are abusing your lesser god powers with first stealing others animated avatars and now making one of your own. That, and I miss Willy.

I love the Lost Vikings. Did you rip yours from the game, or did you use someone else's?
