GIF as avatar?

i tried and it didn't work. i though maybe it was a contributor thing but i see that level 3's and even a non-contributors can have them.

does it have to be typed or saved a certain way?

i then tried to put my old one in and it didn't want to save so i just changed it to something new.

i would like to know about the GIF though.

the properties say 1.88MB and the pixels are 350x201.

it's not a big deal, i'm happy with what is there now but at the same time, i'm contributing so it'd be nice to get those perks.

thanks for looking into it trent.

Your gif is not only too large but too huge. And I use the word "huge" as compared to "large" because I'd assume it is prolly 5ish times huger filesize than they allow?

Maximum image size allowed for contributors is 144 x 168 pixels or 75.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

Yeah the filesize is to big. Not sure if a .gif will even be able to fit that requirement or not actually.

Gifs work fine you just have to meet the requirements.
