Hi friends,

I'm opening this thread not really to expose a problem, but just to expose an avatar situation.
I've been trying to upload this image as my avatar :

avatar256_20.gif


The size of this one will have to be re-sized.

or this one:


thbutterflylz9.gif


and I get the following message : You may not upload animated images.

I'va used animated image before so I don't know if this is a new issue in the forum. Can you please clarify my doubt.

EDIT : I'm not really sure if this should be posted here or on Suggestions and Feedback on our web site operation. Please move it if it's not supposed to be here.

Thanks :)

I think you are limited to 70 x 70 size and 31.5 KB gif but the forum software has been upgraded a couple of times so those values may have changed

Edit well there doesn't seem to be anything wrong as 19K is within limits, perhaps it is a setting somewhere that needs changing

Hi Topper,

I think it's not really a problem of size, but of animation of the Avatar (the glittering of the butterflies).

Do you know of any new issue of the forum on this ?

Thanks :)

Have you tried reducing it to 70 x 70 pixels?, that is how mine was animated but I must confess that I have not tried changing it recently so my first comment still stands, Admin will have to have a look at it if it is a restriction.
I will try changing mine from guinness to cider now


Edit I see the size allowed is 100 pixels X 100 pixels now

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Or mine, Rolfs, etc .....

The issue is almost always down to resizing, animation is unlikely to be the issue.
